Swiftly Switch App

Since the release of Android Lollipop, the need of third-party multitasking apps have been felt much less. But don’t we all want to try something different? So today we are going to introduce to our users, an app which will help you improve your phone’s multitasking experience to a great extent. If you have had a history with Android since or within the last 2-3 years, I am quiet sure that you must be well aware of Paranoid Android and its influential Pie control feature.

Swiftly Switch App is brought to you by XDA member thuongthoi056, that will simplify the way you switch between your currently running apps. All you need to do is swipe from the desired screen edge, and use a single finger to browse, and switch between apps. The plus point in using this app is that it wouldn’t require you to have your phone rooted. Next, it not only helps you to multitask, but also handle functions like Home and Back button, and expand the notification panel.

During the first run, you can setup the desired configuration of the app. The first two essential steps would be to enable the app’s usage access and enable accessibility settings for Swiftly Switch app. Next, you can adjust the position, sensitivity, and length of your selected edge.

It is available as both – free and paid versions. Free variant will offer you Home/Back buttons, second egde and notification panel expand functions for a trial period of 7 days. Post that, if you feel the need of these features, you can buy the Swiftly Switch Pro app. However, favourite apps feature will still be available in the free version of this app. The app could be installed on any Android smartphone or tablet running KitKat 4.4+.

The app may be in testing phase, but still works pretty well. The confirmed bugs have been stated below, as mentioned by the app developer. If you have any issues, you can directly consult the Swiftly Switch App developer by clicking the source link at the end of this article.


  • Navigation and show notification functions have issues with Samsung devices.
  • The expand notification is not a official feature from Google, so some manufacturers as well as some custom ROMs may contradict with it.
  • There could be a problem with the accessibility permission. You will need to enable it manually

The developer has promised to fix these minor bugs at the earliest possible.
