    After a long time of using android, I found that a good way to have a feature that i can suggest for android developer is to add a manual priority option for the recent open apps list.

    For example like i always like to use google translate tool and always hoping to have a quick way to open it from recent apps button instead of always have to go back main screen and open it.

    Suggestion: While click on recent app button a list of recent apps listed. Each list on top has screen pin and close button. Can you add another button for user to easy make the prefer app to always appear in first one?

    Whilst not exactly what you're after, there are apps which perform a similar function to this.

    I use appsi: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appsimobile.appsii

    I can configure one area of the edge of my screen as a "hot spot" and when I touch it, I'm given a slide out menu of apps that I've chosen to put there. You could put translate there.

    If you want this as a standard feature of Android, you'll need to contact Google. :)

    Check out Notification Toggle at the play$tore.

    It allows you to put shortcuts on your drop-down notification screen.

    Very convenient for quickly accessing frequently used apps.
