    "A pinch of Ubuntu Touch in your Android"

    Ubuntu Touch is almost ready to officially hit some mobile devices. However, if you are Canonical's most-known product fan and want to make your Android look like Ubuntu Touch, you can start with Glovebox: a side-dock which is a replica of Ubuntu Touch and desktop application launcher.

    What I liked most of Glovebox is that's highly configurable. You can add up to 8 applications to the dock (more can be added after upgrading to its premium version) and sort them at your whim. In addition, margins to make it show can be adjust as well as vibrate on touch, enable it in landscape mode, add transition effect, sensibility levels, bar opacity and icon on notifications. Actually, it comes with 5 different themes including classic Ubuntu (icon pack not supported yet).

    Glovebox brings to Android its multi-tasking philosophy.

    Do you like the app?
    To help keep the development of app active, please consider sharing the app with your friends, leave a positive review on Google Play or unlock the pro version for extra features.

    Meteor Swipe was originally inspired by the Ubuntu phone OS and it is now one of the best sidebar apps available for Android. Create multiple sidebars for your most used apps and favorite contacts. Customize to your style using the different themes available (new themes still being added). Access your widgets from anywhere using the floating widgets feature.

    - The app doesn't do anything after enabling, why?
    Some Android variations like MIUI and Flyme OS might require you to manually grant a permission to use floating windows. Please try to open the app info in the system preferences and then look for a disabled option/permission that might be related with floating windows.

    - Why can't i dismiss the app notification?
    The persistent notification helps to keep the service running in the background and it's highly recommended. On most devices it can be hidden in the app info from Android settings.

    Please give us suggestions for new features:

    G+ Community - For feedback, questions & suggestions:

    The app requires very few permissions.
    Phone permission - It's required only for direct dial shortcuts and will not be used for anything else.

    Is a great app, but i do have a strange bug, i have the home button set to trigger it on the home screen but it is switching the sides it's opening on. Initially it was the right now it's on the left. Any chance to have an option to force one side?

    Needs support for choosing a custom icon from photos. Some icon packs don't have icons for apps I use, so I made custom ones that Nova supports. Would like support for loading icons from a file manager or photos app. Thanks

    I love the operating system of it as it is, but there are few things I would like fixed. Like the screen overlay issue. I have a show me redmi 4A and it's already complicated with having to go in and turn on and off the screen overlay is so if I didn't have to do that with this app it would make my life a little bit easier. But I also understand if it can't be solved because of all the different phones OS is.

    It'll have 5 star if you add option to move the trigger point to any point on let or right side. Another option is please make it deen automatically when not activated form certain second.
