    Download from Android Market: Smart Taskbar

    Smart Taskbar is a - super launcher, task switcher, and also an app organizer that you can quickly call up on any window by swipe the edge of screen or by clicking a transparent trigger icon on screen. In most cases, you can complete app launching in 2 finger clicks (1st swipe, and 2nd click on app icon to launch). Possibly the fastest way to quickly launch or switch between applications.

    Smart Taskbar comes with following features
    (1) 5 speedy launch spots for 2 steps quick launch
    (2) App organizer function built in
    (3) Task switch
    (4) super speedy launcher
    (5) Software home button (To prevent H/W home button from tear and wear)
    (6) True multitask experience!


    Reason why to use Smart Taskbar:
    (1) Free up your home screen for more widgets instead of app shortcuts
    (2) A better way to organize app in to groups
    (3) Need a faster way to launch your app
    (4) Missing the multi tasking in Palm Pre
    (5) Don't want to press hardware button too frequently


    Get Smart Taskbar by searching 'Smart Taskbar' in Android Market.

    (1) Wifi power switch
    (2) Bluetooth power switch
    (3) 3G/APN switch

    Everywhere Clipboard extends Android clipboard function and brings real desktop clipboard experience to you on mobile phone. Everywhere Clipboard is a Windows Office style clipboard panel which records copied items into a history stack. In addition to that, the clipboard panel can be opened anywhere in any application without the need to leave your current window or switch to different windows. To bring up the panel, just click on a tiny trigger icon located at the edge of your screen and the panel will expand. Brought to you by the same Dev who made Smart Taskbar and Button Savior.

    If you are a serious email or note taking user like me, you might find it improve your overall productivity a lot because there is no more app switching back and forth for simple text copy and paste action.

    Download From Market

    Features
    ☆ Instant on, always available clipboard panel
    ☆ Manage content to copy from files/folders
    ☆ Built in note editor for quick file creation
    ☆ Quick copy from any .txt files
    ☆ Supports both clipboard history based or file based copy
    ☆ More to come.............

    This app is developed by the same Dev who makes the popular Android Apps Button Savior, Smart Taskbar, and Everywhere Clipboard.

    Smart Statusbar is the first and only statusbar enabler for full screen apps on android devices. No more lose track of time or important info on statusbar when you are reading, playing, or watching movie.

    To enable statusbar, just do a simple top down swipe from top of screen. By default, statusbar will shows 5 seconds. You can also adjust the timeout to your preference in settings.

    Please note. This app doesn't work on Honeycomb and ICS based Tablets. They are very different from phone version of Android. So no statusbar hidden problem on those tablets. So do not download if you want to use it on ICS or HC tablets.

    NO ROOT REQUIRED!

    FEATURES
    ☆ Reveal statusbar in full screen apps
    ☆ Gesture activation
    ☆ Works on 2.0 and up
    ☆ Adjustable statusbar enabling duration
    ☆ Vibration hint


    DOWNLOAD
    (1) You can download directly from Google Playstore. [here]

    Ever since my first release of Button Savior to Playstore, I can get almost 1-5 mails everyday from users questioning me why it doesn't work on their devices simply because they don't know what 'Root' is. Able to run Button Savior without root has then always been my first priority to do. Good news is since the introduction of Android 4.1, there is new APIs that allow me to develop Button Savior to run on regular, unroot, devices. So finally I can make a version for everyone who are not tech savvy. NOTE: For those who are already using Button Savior (root) on 4.1 and newer, you can install this version and uninstall the original one.

    Button Savior is an Android system keys simulation app that allows user to mimic action of Back, Home, and Recent Task keys on screen. If you have a phone with broken hardware button, or you simply just want to get rid of the bottom system Bar to unleash more screen estate, Button Savior is for you to do that.

    Button Savior (Non Root) is based on existing code of Button Savior (Root). So all themes and features are kept in this version too minus support of Search and Menu keys because they are not necessary in 4.1.

    [Features in this version]
    ☆ Simulates 'Home' 'Back' 'Recent Task' 'Screen Off' 'Volume' 'Camera' and 'Call' buttons
    ☆ Can set to always open or auto hide based on user customizable timer
    ☆ Two types of trigger action to choose from (Gesture trigger and Click trigger)
    ☆ Added Camera key and Call key simulation
    ☆ Customizable trigger position
    ☆ Also provides themese to support e-ink display
    ☆ Can change it to one click mode for super fast button action in option
    ☆ 11 beautifully made themes to choose from

    [Smart Taskbar V2]
    Smart Taskbar is designed to make you use your phone one handed easily. All new V2 is even more one hand optimized. Launch any application instantly without leaving your current window. Swipe your finger or click the trigger icon anytime in any App to bring up Smart Taskbar panel for super fast app launching also works as app organizer, folder organizer, multi tasker, task killer, and shortcut manager. The App is carefully designed and implemented to make sure you can comfortable do most things with just one hand. If you are one hand operation freak and is always looking for something to use your phone easier with one hand, then Smart Taskbar 2 is the right thing for you. Although it is capable, but I still don't suggest you use my App in driving. :silly:
    How is everyone saying about V1:

    [Some Background]
    About three years ago, I introduced an app called Smart Taskbar which used a never been used technique called system overlay window to demonstrate the potential benefit of using top level window in Android Apps to create something that is always on top and always available first time. So thats why you see many many devs that use similar technique to make their Apps such as swipe pad, swapps, sidebar...etc. Many of you may not know its me who brought you the first app in this class in Android Market by the time because app Smart Taskbar V1 is not as famous as other similar apps. Probably due to lack of details or it is simply too engineering style.
    During my development of V1 in 2010, I asked many friends around me to see how's their reaction with an always available, always displayed, tiny trigger button design thats is displayed all the time on screen to access a small launcher style window when pressed. All of them told me its obstructive and bad of user experience. 3 years has passed. Even Apple adopt the idea in their iOS5 called accessitive touch. I don't know did Apple engineers know about my App. But I am quite happy that my concept is accepted by Apple.
    If you are interested to know more about my V1, you can refer to this XDA thread for more details:

    Intro
    I recently added two new features (Scroll to top and scroll to bottom) for my other app, Button Savior. The more I play with it, the more I believe it should be made as a separate app. So here it is. Since I only spent one day to develop this app, so I will continue through in more features later. I believe this app should work for you. If it doesn't, please post a reply here. Thanks in advanced.

    This app, as in first release, does only two things. But they can come in extremely handy when you are in a situation that you want to quickly return to top of a list or a web page. Before this app, you need to swipe again and again until you hit the top. Things get worse when the list is loooooong. With OneClick Scroll, all you need to do is to tap on top left corner on statusbar to scroll to top and tap on top right corner on statusbar to scroll to bottom.

    I have tested on two of my devices and most apps I have. It works in browser, Facebook, playstore. gmail, contact, phone history...... virtually anything scrollable. If it fails to scroll to top/bottom in your case, please let me know the app that fails.

    Lol ill overlook the fact that you seem to have rated your own app on Play :p
    Excellent app and works perfectly on g+ :)
    Ive wanted something like this for ages.
    Could you add a setting to change the trigger width?
    I use my phone in immersive mode (no statusbar) so the triggers clash with some buttons.
    If we could have a really narrow triger area and slide a thumb onto it (like with PIE) that would be great :beer:
    Just gave the app a share on g+ for you ;)
    Once its perfect id gladly buy it
