Easy Touch Is An iOS AssistiveTouch-Inspired Multitasking Tool For Android

One of the biggest advantages of being an Android user is the broad range of apps and tools you have at your disposal for achieving various purposes, and when it comes to multitasking and app switching solutions, things are no different. While certain solutions add an interactive and personalized app drawer alongside your device’s screen edge, others offer an omnipresent on-screen trigger that you can interact with to switch back and forth between apps, or play around with various system features from anywhere in Android. Adding to the latter category is Easy Touch – an extremely lightweight and customizable Android app switching and multitasking solution with built-in 1-tap memory optimizer, system/power toggles, contact shortcuts and the ability to emulate various hardware buttons. More on Easy Touch past the break...
Just like the previously-reviewed 2nd HOME, onDeck and my personal favorite SwitchApps, Easy Touch can be summoned from anywhere within Android – especially useful in full-screen apps – by tapping a floating on-screen trigger, which seems to have been inspired from the AssistiveTouch feature of iOS.

In this case, however, the floating trigger/button is designed to reflect the real-time memory consumption of your Android device. Tapping the trigger reveals an overlay panel, complete with your favorite system toggles, app & contact shortcuts, statistics pertaining to the current memory consumption & number of active processes, and the 1-tap memory optimizer button. As mentioned earlier, the toggles, switches and shortcuts on this panel can be set according to your preferences.

Barring the Wi-Fi, mobile data, sound profile, brightness, and GPS toggles, you can tinker with all other contents of the panel by entering the editing mode. For this, hit the edit button at the top-right of the panel. Tapping the ‘Add’ button offers you three choices, using which you can add quick toggles, contact shortcuts and apps to the panel. Apart from the aforementioned power toggles, you have the following choices at your disposal:
  • Bluetooth
  • Automatic sync
  • Airplane mode
  • Automatic screen rotation
  • Home
  • 1-tap screen lock
In addition, you can pick as many apps for the panel as required, and also select desired contacts you wish to call, text or mail with just a tap, all from the panel itself. There is no limit on the number of items that can be added to the panel.
By tapping the settings button at the top-right of the panel, you can turn off the floating trigger of Easy Touch, set the app to be available from your home screen only, or hide the memory consumption percentage display from the trigger itself. Tapping the Assistive Touch icon on your Android device’s app drawer lets you enable/disable the app, and adjust the opacity level as well as size of the Easy Touch trigger.
Easy Touch is available in the Play Store for free and can be downloaded via the link provided below.

  2. They are casual gaming experiences as opposed to hardcore gaming.
    But what market is more likely to upgrade after each new generation is released.
    If you plan on creating a simple game for the app store, Fruit Ninja can give you a good
    amount of ideas.

    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
