SideControl is a gestures, sidebars, multitasking all-in-one app for Android

Developer: JawomoDownload: Android
Genre: PersonalisationPrice: Free

There are two kinds of Android users - ones who use sidebars, and ones who don't. SideControl is for the second type. It lets you perform a wide range of actions such as launch apps and contact shortcuts, activate tasker profiles, open notifications, switch between opened apps, and much more - with just a single swipe. Users are able to create different sidebars dedicated to apps, games, tools and such, and appoint them a gesture. The positive effect is you'll control your smartphone like a ninja. The negative - it's possible that no one beside you will be able to use your phone.

SideControl is compatible with homescreen launchers such as Nova, Go, and ADW. It also supports icon packs and Xposed features like Halo mode and Multi-window. Users can utilize up to three Touch Areas for startubg Gestyres, up to 8 predefined Gestures per Touch Area, and up to four Favorites Listes for categorizing apps. The sidebars can contain recent apps, notifications, favorite apps, and shortcuts. Gesture controls include Double taps, Long press, and Push out (note - this does not involve pushing your smartphone). The best part? Everything is fully customizable - size, color, label, opacity, backgrounds, rotation, you name it!

SideControl is free and available from the Google Play Store.

Smart Taskbar is the BEST. A bit complicated but very advanced and powerful. Try V1 or V2. Both active
