A long press on an application on the home screen allows you to change the importance of the application (they are also sorted by name) or remove it from your favorites.
The volume control on the home screen will show you if your phone is in silent mode (ringer and notification muted) or shows you a warning if one of your volumes is at minimum (in case you miss an important call or text).
A long press on the application in the ‘all applications’ list adds or removes it from your favorites or a regular press opens the application. There is a limit of 12 favorites in the lite version.
The paid version includes a Car Dock (Simple Car) that works in the same way as the regular application but with even larger icons on three separate screens for use when navigating.
That is pretty much all there is to it - because sometimes you don’t want it to be any more complicated than that.

UNINSTALL NOTE: This app will be a 'Device Administrator' if you activate the 'Lock screen on undock' feature. You must deactivate the feature, or remove the app from your phone's device administrator before you can uninstall. Go to your phone's settings, Location & Security, Device Administrator, disable Car Dock Home v3, then uninstall as usual.
Add your favorite apps, shortcuts and widgets to as many as 7 screens, for easy access in the car. Defaults to a screen of 2x3 cells for large easy touch buttons.
Shortcut and app buttons can be renamed and given custom images.
* Full size widget support
* Landscape dialer pad (work in progress, but functions)
* Landscape contacts, and starred contacts
Supports many automatic settings when phone enters/exits car mode, like
* enable gps

* enable bluetooth
* all volumes to max ( bugs: misses navigation volume, and ringer... )
* turn off device on undock
* Landscape/Portrait lock
* icon grid anywhere from 1x1 to 4x4
* full screen or not
* paging buttons, or not
* smooth scrolling like your home app.
* Icons scaling options.

* Navigation link that attempts to resume navigation if maps app is running ( not 100% reliable, a work in progress )

Your Input is Welcome!
Note: home key while in Car Dock app only takes you to start page if Car Dock app is set as default car home and you are in car mode. Car Dock does not automatically put the phone in car mode... Try google's 'Car Home' icon to launch car mode on froyo, or my 'Car Dock Control' for eclair/froyo/gingerbread...
If you don't like my dialer and contacts, you can use your own... Many complain that the stock Android dialer/contacts app doesn't support landscape, but I've found that it does, but on many phones you have to enable auto rotation in the dialer app preferences.
MotoBlur won't let you set the default Home app back to default as long as you have another Home replacement app like LauncherPro or ADW installed.
This tiny utility lets you set the stock MotoBlur Home app back to default without having to uninstall all of your Home replacement apps.
I highly recommend installing this if you use Home Switcher for Froyo or HomeSmack on your MotoBlur phone.
Finally works properly on Gingerbread!
Launch your favorite apps through the «Home Button Swipe Up» gesture.
• This works best on devices with three soft keys, like Nexus 5 or Moto G (i.e. devices that have virtual «Back / Home / Recent Apps» soft buttons).
• On some devices this app opens when doing a "Long click" on the home button (e.g. the newer HTC and Sony Xperia phones).
• Most Samsung devices are not at all or very poorly supported (since Samsung overrides 'Home Button' behavior with their own software).
→ Test this app if you're looking for a simple app launcher alternative to «Wave Launcher», «SwipePad», «Smart Taskbar» or «Sidebar», or if you want to replace the default «Google Now» home button binding
→ Also check out DG Settings, this integrates nicely into Home Button Launcher

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!
1, This app may hinder touching space bar while typing. The workaround is touch the upper part spacebar, disable "improve sensitivity" if possible, or use a IME that has a bigger space bar.
2, No back button and menu button support, because those need root permission.
3, This app is not suitable for device that solely use virtual keys.
4, Swipe Home Button has been tested with Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note 2, and HTC One. However, I can not assure other device can use this app.
1, With Android 4.1+, you could even hide the icon in notification pull-down by unchecking "show notification" setting for Swipe Home Button in your phone's application manager. On Android 4.0 device, the icon in notification pull-down is required to keep the swipes working.
2, Every swipe should start from outside of the screen. The swipe don't need to be fast.
3, Because of this app you may need to press upper part of your space bar when typing. The lower part is occupied by this app.
4, Combining with other "Lock Screen" app can achieve lock screen using swipe.
5, Combining with the great app called "Tasker", you could achieve any action with swipe, including "Menu back" and "back button".

When certain Bluetooth headsets get connected to the device the audio can get noisy / corrupt.
This app re-connects a A2DP headset after it has been connected to bypass this problem.
Please tell me when your Bluetooth headset doesn't work or if you have any other issues!
If you use a Bluetooth headset in your car you propably know the annoyance of turning on bluetooth when you start driving and shut it off when you are at your destination.
An alternative would be to let Bluetooth on all the time but this wastes battery life.
Here comes Blue Head Buddy into play.
Whenever you receive a phone call, Blue Head Buddy activates Bluetooth and turns it off when the phone call is over. You can configure Blue Head Buddy to let Bluetooth turned on when your configured headset has been connected while Blue Head Buddy turned on Bluetooth. After the headset disconnects, Bluetooth is turned off again. This can be helpful if you want to call someone back because your phone lost connection.
Blue Head Buddy can also be used as a Bluetooth control widget.
