PaperLaunch

Side launcher in material design that launches apps with one gesture

PaperLaunch is a side launcher. Tired of hopping back to your home screen to launch that one app while you are inside another one? Have you used a side launcher and

  • are frustrated because you have to do multiple gestures to launch the app?
  • activate it accidentally by touching the activation zone and immediately launch the app that happens to be on that spot?
  • do you miss the ability to define a folder structure in that launcher?

Then PaperLaunch is the perfect side launcher for you. Try it!

PaperLaunch is open source! You can find it on GitHub.
