About this app

Ivy does what no other sidebar launcher does. Ivy provides more than just quick access to your next app. Ivy provides a comfortable place to spend time in between apps. Your home away from the homescreen. The quick panel provides snippets of valuable information to give you glimpses of the things you need to know without the need to go to another app. Stay up on news or stocks without ever needing to launch a specific app, or get the information you need from widgets without the need to go all the way to the home screen. The info you need is just a swipe away.

Features include:
Launching Apps
Launching Shortcuts
Using widgets
Getting upcoming Calendar events
Using widgets
Viewing your favorite RSS news stream.
Endless Customizability!
No Ads!
At any time and over any app!

for me, the animation makes it completely useless. was also hoping widgets were accessible w 1 tap or swipe, a swipe and tap for widgets, might as well just press home button. just as fast as opening the home screen or any other app since you need to wait for the animation. i wanted to improve my phones usability but it made the phone harder to use. i used to have a similar app years back with more customizable features that worked better, used less resources, cant remember the name

The app allows you to add a number of apps to the side edge panel, which is not limited in the way the stock Samsung/Android edge panel is. It also allows users to access the calendar easily. However, the app is buggy in that most times when I swipe to see the edge panel, one of the apps will not be present where it should be and instead there is a blank spot for where it belongs. The Game Launcher app does not open from this panel.

Good idea, I wanted a way to show certain widgets without adding more home screens, this app allows that but there are a few bugs, sidebar won't immediately dismiss with back button needs several taps to close & icon packs don't work. Hope these issues can be fixed as this is a great idea. Thanks
