One of my friend showed me new cool app Swipe Home Button on his Samsung Galaxy S4 and right away I knew this app is gonna feature in my App worth talking series. I'm not a big fan of having a whole slew of gestures to try and remember to do things like open notifications or open apps, but Swipe Home Button doesn't have some huge list of gestures that I won't remember.

It changes the way you control your android device. It provide five most useful actions on Android with bezel swipe gestures. There are five actions — swipe up, swipe far up (about two-thirds of the screen height), swipe up then down, swipe up and to the right, swipe up and to the left — that you can set up to perform five actions — go back to the "home" home screen, show recent apps, show notifications, play the next track in a playlist and open an app.

This app is designed for phones with "real" buttons (read physical and/or capacitive), and can cause issues on phones with on-screen buttons. I'm not sure what issues — the developer doesn't say. We'll just trust him on that one. But so far, on the Galaxy S4, I'm kinda feeling it.

Swipe Home Button is compatible with any 4.0+ devices! Including your Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, HTC One. However, this app is not suitable for device with virtual buttons. In addition, This app has a tiny footprint. Not a single unnecessary permission is required. Free your Home Button with gestures. Check out the video to feel the easy and clean swipe gestures!
