Wave Launcher

Available in :
✓ Special introductory price while we roll out features: only 0.99$

NEW: Custom icons!

Wave Launcher is a unique, gesture-enabled, quick action-bar for Android. It resembles a well-known and loved feature on WebOS phones like the Palm-Pre and works system-wide.

Regardless of any application currently running, you can swipe you finger from the virtual gesture-area at the bottom of the screen towards the middle to show the wave - A fully configurable quick-launch action-bar.

Usage is extremely simple:
1. Touch the very bottom of the screen and slowly swipe your finger up towards the middle of the screen.
2. When you get towards the middle, the wave appears!
3. Without raising your finger, swipe left or right to select the desired application
4. To launch the app, simply raise your finger from the screen.
5. If you changed your mind and don't want to launch anything, simply swipe the wave back to the bottom

Notable features:
✓ The wave can contain any application or shortcut you can add to your home screen.
✓ The wave is accessible anytime, regardless of which application is currently running using a simple gesture!
✓ Supports custom icons from ADW themes. (More coming soon!)
✓ The wave responds to your finger movement, it changes its shape, icon size, and icon transparency.
✓ Can be enabled by swiping from the bottom, left side or right side of the screen (See the 'calibrate' screen)
✓ Fully independent, doesn't need to replace your home-screen app.
✓ Doesn't interfere with running applications.
✓ Small memory footprint.
✓ Fully customizable gesture-area with a single long-press and swipe!
✓ Doesn't affect battery-life!

NOTE: Notification icon can be disabled in the settings screen.
Please READ the info in the Help screen. It will help you a lot!

This is an early release with more features coming soon.

Needs an option to display most recent apps like a home button long press, and an option for how high you have to slide for it to appear.

Icon can be disabled in settings

by Tim the 3/18/2011

Very useful app. Only negative is that apps take a little while to launch

by MrConeBone69 the 3/18/2011

Android never killed this before, now I have to have a stupid icon in my notification bar so it won't be killed.

by Greg the 3/18/2011

Exactly what I needed. I use it for my favorite contacts

by lite the 3/18/2011

Wow! I didn't realize I missed this from my Pre Plus (Inc) until I found this app. It doesn't launch at startup, but otherwise perfect.

by Tony the 3/18/2011

Great, except doesn't auto launch at startup correctly.

by BiggDaddy the 3/18/2011
