If you have used the recent version of Ubuntu you must have experienced the new Unity interface. It allows you to access your favourite applications and recently used application with easy. Inspired by this Unity interface XDA senior member roshga has developed this app for android which brings the Functionality of Unity interface to Android smartphones. This app is called as Swapps.
Swapps is a pseudo launcher app, which means that it isn’t completely a home replacement app but allows you to launch various apps via it’s interface. Swapps gives you true multi tasking by providing you a list of your favourite apps whenever and wherever you want to launch them. Suppose you are checking out your Facebook and you wish to message your friend and get back to Facebook. With Swaps all you have to do is swipe your finger from the left edge of the screen to the middle, which will give you a list of apps on the left part of the screen. Simply select your message app and once you are done with sending a message you can follow the same process to return back to Facebook.
Swapps constantly runs in the background to make sure that you can access your apps from anywhere without going to the Home screen. Swapps is a free app with advertisements. The interface of thew app is divided in to three parts: Starred apps, Recent apps and All apps. You can “Star” your favourite apps so that they are displayed in the top of the list. You can also kill currently running apps from the recent apps section. Swapps is a very interesting app that will make your life much easier.
