Its main goal is to help you find and launch apps faster, and with style. For that purpose Lightning Drawer offers several views such as most frequently used, recently updated, sorted by name, as well as a direct search function to look for an app by its name.
But what makes Lightning Drawer unique is this powerful view where items can be freely moved, hidden and organized in folders. In this custom mode the drawer is like a large canvas where items can be placed in all directions: left, right pages, but also top and bottom. Each app can be customized individually: use a custom font, select an icon from an ADW pack, change its size, etc.). This leave you total control and freedom on how you want your apps to appear in your drawer.
Folders can themselves contain other folders, and of course each folder can be customized individually. This is a great tool when it comes to classify a lot of apps with several levels, for instance "games/arcade", or "tools/productivity". Folders can be hidden too, helping in cleaning your drawer from all these built-in or system apps you will never use and that encumber your device.
Should you need to reclaim memory, Lightning Drawer has a built-in app killer: just long tap on an app, select "kill", et voilà!
Lightning Drawer is the app drawer of choice for people wanting a fast and easy to use drawer, yet packed with useful features and an impressive set of customization options.

AppDrawer is now Open Source! http://blog.jakedup.com/appdrawer-is-now-open-source/
AppDrawer is a highly customizable app drawer replacement. You can use it as an alternative to your launcher's default app drawer, or to add functionality to launchers that don't currently support the app drawer (like MIUI for example).
You can use with pretty much any launcher, including: your phone's default launcher, Go Launcher, ADW Launcher, LauncherPro, Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, Launcher 7, MIUI Launcher, and more!
There are similar offerings out there, such as Faster Drawer -- or Organized Drawer -- or even Folder Organizer, but nothing comes close to offering the level of personalization that AppDrawer provides. With AppDrawer, you can literally flesh out hundreds of unique designs and layouts using all the different options to your disposal. Some of those options include...
[✓] Choose between 3 view modes: List, Grid, or Horizontal Paged
--- List = WP7/Windows Phone 7 | Grid = Android | Paged = iPhone
[✓] Set number of rows and columns as well as row spacing
[✓] Set background color, image, or use your current wallpaper
[✓] Set the font type, font color, font size, and icon size
--- Fonts = Arial Rounded, Droid Serif, Helvetica, or custom
[✓] Sort list by name (A-Z), install date, or launch frequency
[✓] Remember list position: Remembers last position in drawer
[✓] Edit application names and change default application icons
[✓] Hide less frequently used applications from the app list
[✓] Bulk edit (multi-select) more than one application at a time
[✓] Fullscreen mode option: Hides the notification/status bar
[✓] Option to force Portrait or Landscape screen orientation
[✓] Shows up in recent apps/multitasking menu for quick access
--- 2.1/2.2/2.3: Hold home key | 4.0: Press multi-task button
[✓] Quick shortcut to Android's Manage Applications settings menu
[✓] Option to backup and restore preferences, or reset to default
[✓] Eclair | Froyo | GB/Gingerbread | ICS/Ice Cream Sandwich
[•] AppDrawer may be slow to open on certain phone/ROM/launcher combinations. We are working on incorporating a permanent fix, but until then, those who have ROOT ACCESS can manually resolve this issue by moving the AppDrawer APK to /system/apps/ and reboot -- You can do this manually with file explorer apps like Root Explorer or automatically with Titanium Backup's "Convert To System App" function. Contact us at Support@JakedUp.com if you are unsure.
[•] The "Multi-Select" --> "Select All" option in List or Paged view modes will force close. We are also working on a fix. Until then, manually check the apps that you want to edit.
Initial source code credit goes to XUSO over at XDA-Developers. AppDrawer is a continuation of his original AltDrawer project, so if you like this app, then please see that he gets a donation!
We have more features planned for the future, such as bug fixing, optimized performance, app folders, icon packs 'n themes, transition effects, ICS pagination, and more. Have a suggestion? Fire off in the comments and let us know what you would like to see... Just don't rate it for what it should be, rate it for what it is!

* v1.4.0 or higher does not support updates from v1.3.4 or lower.
*MIUI and Android 4.0+ users will need to set the Vertical Location to BOTTOM. Otherwise the drawer's bar will be behind the status bar and will not be accessible.
Pulling up/down on the left, middle, or right 1/4 of the status bar or bottom of the screen (depending on your setting) will display all of your installed apps. No need to go back to your homescreen to launch other apps!
It will even work when the status bar is not present (e.g. when an app is running in fullscreen). This may interfere with some games so you may want to stop the service before playing games if it causes problems.
There are settings to choose which apps to shown or hide in the pulldown and also settings to customize the appearance.
**NOTE: Because of a "feature" of the Android OS, the back and home buttons will not close the app drawer if it is opened within 5 seconds after pressing the home key on your device. Just be aware of that so you don't accidentally close apps behind the drawer.

How much time do you spend searching your apps on your device? A lot for sure!
Now, Quad, the app drawer solves your problem.
Quad Drawer is the quickest way to launch apps. It’s a simple app drawer: using the predictive keyboard, just type a few letters of the app you’re looking for and Quad will bring it to you.
You want to go quicker? You don’t want to return to your homescreen to launch your app drawer? We solved that! Go to your settings, and activate “Floating window”. Now, you can access Quad Drawer from any app by touching the floating icon.
“Ok! That’s good but it’s not enough” you may think. We thought too, so we added more features.
Because all Android users are not launching apps the same way, many options are available in this app drawer:
- Select how you want to sort your apps (alphabetically, by most used, by last used, by install date)
- Select how your apps are displayed (grid or list)
- Select the keyboard you want (default or predictive)
Quad Drawer provides a light and a dark theme. Choose the one that suits you the best according to your system and your personal tastes.
With Quad Drawer, you will never lose time searching apps, and you’ll save a lot of room on your homescreen so you can add more Beautiful Widgets ;-)
Multi Tasking just got a little more easier!
Floating Drawer floats on top of your applications and lets you dock your home screen widgets in it so you can access the widgets without even having to leave the application you are in.
Access multiple widgets without covering up the entire screen.
Check your text messages while playing games.
Check contacts while watching a video.
Launch Applications quicker through Application shortcuts.
Want to use the entire screen for your Application? Hide "Floating Drawer" with a single swipe. Re-open it when needed with just another swipe.
Do you have a favorite widget? Un-dock it from the drawer to let it float by itself on your applications. Drag and drop it back in to the drawer when done.
Please leave comments and/or suggestions. I will make sure to work on it to provide a better user experience.
You can download "Floating Drawer Lite" to try some of these features out.
Requires Android 4.0 or Higher.
Scrolling is enabled on the far left for the container with widgets
Hiding the drawer from notification, completely hides the drawer. you will have to re-launch the app to see the drawer again. You will still be able to dock the floating widgets even though the drawer is completely hidden.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks for all the support of you people :) Have a nice day.
I changed the default settings to random color and shaded "brush". You can change the brush and color anytime in menu.
I added location based analysis for a cool feature that I'm currently working at. Please forgive me to collect anonymous location data. Not doing anything fancy with it yet though. You can check out the source code since it's an Open Source Project and can be cloned at https://github.com/kibotu/android-painter
You can also reorder, edit, tag, and send your to-do list.
You can create a label shortcut (or a widget) with a custom icon on Android home (long touch on home and select shortcut)
If you want to organize apps, bookmarks, contacts and shortcuts you can install Folder Organizer. Apps Organizer data can be easily imported
1.5: widget support, if you have "Apps label" bug please use widgets instead of shortcuts
