I love this add-on. It's one of my favorite features of SwipePad. The only thing that I would suggest is that you add the ability to close tasks from the task manager. I now notice that when I use the task manager pad to return to an article or even the Play Store or anything for that matter I always have to back track to where was in the app before I left. It would be great if the task manager was more like the one native to Android. It takes back to the exact screen you were lookin at in that app, and you could remove tasks.
Contact pads don't work. I love the concept behind this app, and the "recently used" pad works beautifully, as do the other add-ons. However, as many others have noted, the "recently contacted" and "frequently contacted" pads simply do not work. On my phone, they pull up several people whom I last contacted years ago or whom I have never contacted at all. Frustratingly, there is also no option to create your own custom contact pad. I dearly hope the developers are fixing this issue because it would be so convenient for these pads to work. In the meantime, however, know that if you are buying this add-on to manage your contacts, it will simply not work.
Good application Good application for "quick" switching between running apps. However on Samsung Appolo I5800 it has a lag few seconds long. Therefore it is not so quick. I can see EMPTY for a few seconds and then the list of latest apps shows. It would be great having this function is as instant as possible. It would be the best to have an option to choose the ratio of performance/cpu-ram consumtion. Anyway, keep developing - I am happy with your work.
One crucial flaw... & a suggestion to improve the UI It's a great concept. (which is why I paid for this) but... On my Sony Xperia Z Ultra - It never loads Whatsapp from the recent tasks pad. Always fails to open whatsapp. Please correct this issue. Visually, it would be so much nicer if the pad backgrounds were transparent (like in Quickr action launcher) & the settings allowed us to control the level of transparency. Hopefully this will soon be fixed in future updates...
Good but... Not entirely reliable. I found that every once in a while, the recent tasks function won't launch the app that I select. Whatsapp seems to have this effect the most. Disappointing, cause whatsapp is often used by me. Otherwise a good idea - just hope developers fix the bugs so I'd be inclined to use it more. I'm using a galaxy note 2 with nova launcher prime. 8
I recently updated my tablet from Kitkat to Marshmallow and realize that "Dynamic Pads: SwipePad add-on" doesn't work as Context Panel. From other reviews in Play Store I get feedback that this problem started a long time ago in Lollipop. Context is shown not for active app, but for active Launcher. I overcome this problem yourself easily because I have rooted device, I moved "SwipePad Dynamic Pads" app from user apps to system apps. Now it works again as it should. Probably some app's permission restriction in LP/MM...
