Smart Taskbar Is a Thumb Friendly Android Task Launcher

If you frequently use your phone one handed you’ll definitely want to check out Smart Taskbar, an add-on for Android phones that makes it easy to launch apps with the swipe of your thumb.

Smart Taskbar tucks an application launcher on the side of your screen, out of sight. Swipe your thumb across the screen and it slides out like a dock, revealing five of your favorite apps in a toolbar across the top and your lesser used apps in the main panel below.

It’s much easier to swipe to view your applications than it is to peck at the application icon on the home screen; Smart Taskbar is great for one handed launching.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
