Ever feel like its too much of a hassle to return to the homescreen every time you want to check your emails? Or facebook? Wave Launcher allows you to quickly choose from 5 apps, no matter what you are currently doing on your device.

Select the app you want to launch by dragging your finger up from the bottom of the screen until you see the wave launcher. Then moving your finger left or right to highlight the app you want without lifting your finger. To launch the app simply lift your finger from the screen while your chosen app is highlighted. It’s that easy!!

The thing we find most useful about this app is that you can quickly check your emails while playing a game, or while reading an ebook or news article you can effortlessly perform a Google search if needed. You can perform so many task quickly and easily with Wave Launcher and we highly recommend this app!
