Flip Launcher for Android – Convenient App Launching With The Flick of a Finger

Multitasking – one of the many reasons why Android lovers can’t get enough of the OS. Well, here’s an app that will make switching through apps even easier on you. It’s called Flip Launcher and it runs on top of whatever launcher you are currently running. It places “flippers” on the side of the display which can be customized with themes and transparency options, which are then pulled out showing 4 apps. You can have up to 6 flippers at once, each containing 4 apps. That’s a lot of apps.

There are plenty of cool options to change the look of the flippers and yes, you can choose which side the flippers are on. It’s neat for anyone who finds themselves needing a quicker way of accessing their favorite applications. Check it out and let us know what you think.

    I’m not a fan of launchers. But I gave this a try. It’s not a launcher per se, but a great way to access your favorite apps from anywhere! I put a calculator in there and a few other things. What I’ll probably use it most for is when I’m web surfing or inside maps. I turned everything to transparent. And if you’re having a problem hitting it too much with the keyboard, adjust the size. Play around with it! Thanks Tim! I really like it! My wife has an iPhone and this was probably one of the only things she’s been jealous of in a long time. Great app!

    +1 for swipe pad

    • joejoe5709

      Swipe Pad is pretty nice.

    This app has nothing to do with multitasking.
    Multitasking means currently running apps, this thing doesn’t show running apps.

    • joejoe5709

      Agreed. It has nothing to do with multitasking.

    I like this a lot – the flippers are on every screen, no matter what you’re doing. You can control their width, and color, so it’s not distracting. Mine are very pale and thin. I’d like to put a 1×1 widget on it.

    This plus ADW Launcher = pure win

  • Wave Launcher is still the sexiest. Been using it for years.

  • Raven

    Now, if we could put 4×1 widgets on them like Power Strip we might have something.

      nice idea

    • God I miss Power Strip. One of the first apps that, for me, really demonstrated the power of the Android platform.

  • So why don’t we use folders?

    • Some people probably don’t want clutter

      • michael arazan

        I’m a little ocd on clutter which is why i use folders, folders for: quick calls, one for Google apps, one for camera apps, one for widget apps, one for games. I don’t see what the difference is, one touch to open an app.

        • Unless I read it wrong, I believe these ‘flippers’ are a bit more hidden than folders though

  • Joshua and Bristol Kantor

    still like swipe pad better
