    Switchr - App Switcher's review

    Published: 2013-10-28, by Manu Galvez.

    Switchr makes easier switching between running tasks on your Android

    • User-friendly interface
    • Useful
    • Design
    • Highly customizable
    • Icons look like stretched

    "Alt tab"

    We carry out lot of tasks with our mobile devices already, which can take much of our time. For that reason, it's becoming a need having the right tools to run actions quicker. That's Switchr's goal: simplify the way you manage your Android.

    Switchr provides a task-switching bar, quite similar to what you see when holding Alt tab on your desktop. Switchr bar shows up when sliding from the left border to the middle of the screen. Actually you can switch apps in two styles: flow and slide. There you can find those running apps that you've recently launched. You can easily switch between them just by sliding.

    You can perform many other actions such as closing apps, add shortcut to the homescreen,... by setting up gesture. However, that feature is only available in the Pro version. Actually, Switcher is highly customizable but some of those "customizations" (icon size, task limit, screen edge, blacklist...) are Pro features.

    The app is set in a user-friendly neat interface. It's easy to use and highly recommended for those who want to be more efficient when interacting with their mobile devices.

    "Switchr is a well designed and well polished app with a simple, yet practical function that allows users to access their running apps quickly and conveniently." - XDA Developers

    To use Switchr, just swipe in from the edge, make your selection and let go! Switchr has three different styles (Flow, Slide, and Arc), each with it's own unique way of displaying your chosen recent/running/favorite apps. With live switching, you can switch between apps in real time as you swipe! Switchr can even replace your default search action, allowing you to switch between apps using the search key or by swiping up from the navigation bar. You can also pin your favorite apps and rearrange the order to your liking.
