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.

Could use adding of shortcuts
Blown away by both this and Switchr from the same developer. A perfect multitasking combination.
I love this app but it ignores me sometimes. When I click on an app shortcut on sidebar it regularly just hides and doesn't launch the app. Please fix this bug. I'll be your best friend (and give you 5 stars!!!)
Excellent professional applications
