Swapps is a side launcher which is always there and allows to launch any installed apps
We spend already a lot of time "taping" our mobile touchscreen. In the end, that takes a lot of our time. What if we could save some taps... and time?
That's the idea behind Swapps. It provides a side bar you can launch just by sliding over the swiping-area. The scrollable semi-transparent bar features all your installed apps, recently used apps and "starred apps" you can set on your own. Swipe in/out to launch or hide it
As if that wasn't enough, the launcher is highly customizable. You can set the amount of starred or recently used apps, change the order they appear on the launcher, animation speed, activespot appearance and much more.
Probably, the strongest point of Swapps is that, unlike other similar apps, it runs smooth as silk. Likewise, it can be launched over any app, so you don't need to close it to switch from one app to the other.
Swapps is a useful, lightweight and smooth way to save time when launching apps. Highly recommended.

- for some reason MIUI doesn't support on-display views, this is the way to make Swapps work:
Go to settings -> Applications -> swapps ->
Click on "show popup notification"
Click on "clear cache"
Click on "permission management"
Click on "autostart permission"
Reboot, enjoy Swapps with MIUI :D
