Sidebar allows you to launch apps & toggles quickly from your homescreen
Are you missing desktop sidebar to access your apps in mobile devices? You've landed in the right place. Sidebar appears only when you swipe in from the edge of the screen. You can pin both apps and toggles to the sidebar (in the Pro version also running apps and running indicators). Now you can put in the same place those actions you perform the most in your device, no matter if it's a mix of toggles and apps.
Sidebar is highly customizable: from settings you can set the thickness and animation speed of the bar, sensitivity and position. Obviously, Pro version unlocks some customization such as animations, color and opacity.
Sidebar is lightweight, non-intrusive and highly customizable. An intuitive way to access your favorite apps.

works well easy to use.
I love the concept of this app. this trumps the iPhone" toucher". I would gladly get the pro version of the app if the recent app & clear memory shortcuts can also be placed on the side bar. aside from this, this app is awesome!
This app is great for multitasking and very fast and fluid on nexus 7 2012
Hey dev I found it to be the best among all sidebars but it lacks "shortcut" support.Otherwise its unbeatable..keep up
Perfect, and smooth
