Guys, you may have heard about Swapps, Sidebar and Homeflips app.  All of them offer their take on the Ubuntu style sidebar multitasking, whether it be with high customization, flexibility or even low RAM usage. Now, here is an another app called Glovebox.

This app performs the same core function of allowing users to quickly and conveniently switch applications with a swipe from the left or right of their device from the left or right of their device screen, bringing up a vertical dock of select-able apps.

Sidebar Multitasking

The app dock, once triggered displays a vertically scrolling list of user defined apps. And once hovered over, it displays the app’s name next to the icon with pleasant Ubuntu-like transition effects.

The user interface provides access to apps list, where apps can be selected to appear in the sidebar as well as various customization options. Customization possibilities include adjusting height and width of the area of the screen that triggers the app dock, as well as docking the bar to the screen’s left or right.

The dock’s transition effects can be enabled and disabled, and the app also allows users the flexibility to disable itself while the device is in landscape mode. It is available to the users of Android versions 1.6 and newer and is ad-free and free in the Google Play Store.

Glovebox is an extremely well-polished sidebar app, and although not revolutionary, is a strong competitor among the apps that provide similar functions. It’s aesthetically pleasing, smooth in operation and practical in concept.
