Launch your favorite apps through the «Home Button Swipe Up» gesture.
• This works best on devices with three soft keys, like Nexus 5 or Moto G (i.e. devices that have virtual «Back / Home / Recent Apps» soft buttons).
• On some devices this app opens when doing a "Long click" on the home button (e.g. the newer HTC and Sony Xperia phones).
• Most Samsung devices are not at all or very poorly supported (since Samsung overrides 'Home Button' behavior with their own software).

→ Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
→ Also check out DG Settings, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

    At least on my phone there is a bit of lag when launching. Setting option to not wait to load icons helps, but other similar apps (circle launcher) seems to beat it by a little.

    This worked perfectly on my xperia z, great for multitasking. When i installed aokp rom, it just doesn't work anymore, don't know why. Such a shame.

    I used to avoid that shortcut as it would always drag me to Search. I find it quite useful now as I have made shortcuts to the apps I want.

    Make it disable the "whats new" quick launch on the xperia z2 but leave the Google now option or the ability to open any other app. if you can do this it would be more than appreciated

    It was simply the best app in my Nexus 4, and still the best in my Nexus 5. Simple, but very useful.
