Quickr gives you four slide-able panels to fill with shortcuts and automated actions

Quickr has been making rounds in the Play Store as a good-looking, well-working action launcher for Android. What's an "action launcher" and what actions it's launching, you might ask. The concept is simple and cool. Quickr gives you four spots at the edges of your device's display. With the ordinary gesture of pulling from one side towards the center of the screen, you are able to open a panel full of shortcuts and settings, or initiate a pre-defined action.

Quickr has a lot of customization packaged into its intuitive, friendly interface, but it's not more than you actually need. The first part is setting up your hotspots. There are four of these available, although the free version limits users to just one. The spots' sizes can be adjusted slightly, making them easier or harder to pull. Then, you can assign each spot a panel. The panels available are Running apps, Recently opened apps, Favorite contacts, Frequent contacts, Settings, and a custom panel defined by yours truly.

Custom panels is what the right menu is all about. You can create four panels and assign Apps, Settings (toggles like in the pull-down Notifications menu), Folders, Shortcuts, Contacts, and Quick actions (such as posting a Google+ update) to them. There is a limit to how much stuff you can fit inside a single panel, but we're pretty sure Quickr has most of you covered.

Finally, the third section contains a number of settings, such as vibration on triggers, hiding of the app's notification icon, an uninstall shortcut, and link to purchase Quickr Premium.

If you think you need an actions launcher, try Quickr. We think you won't be disappointed.
