    It would actually increase the productivity. Also, a button to lock the app (like it is in vanilla AOSP) would be great!

    How would you go about implementing the Lock App feature in my implementation?

    Cool feature but is it so widely used that we should add it to the proposal?

    I am glad you liked the presentation. :)

    I also like the current way and that is why I designed my proposal to not affect the way Oxygen OS currently works. The current navigation mechanism is OK for casual use and pleasurable to the eye but for quick navigation it justs doesn't hold up. As i said in the thread I have grown tired of having to continously swipe to get to the 3rd, 4th,5h app an so on, when there is a faster way to get there.

    How about a little challenge? Try opening 15 apps and navigate to the 12th and then back to the 4th. Try a few times holding the device with two hands and then try doing it holding the device with only one hand and perhaps you will see where my frustration came from. You can do it using four, five or six apps, the fundamentals are the same... for every application switch there is a swipe action and then a touch action to select the app. I actually did a lot of prototyping before coming up with the proposal and if you are actually navigating to a specific app it becomes more difficult because apps have content and you need to monitor the preview to identify the app. The natural way to quickly identify our target are icons not previews.

    You are more than welcome to let me know what you think, this whole process is about coming together as a community and in the process enriching Oxygen OS to better meet our needs, so please tell me your thoughts on the subject.

    Hello everyone,

    Thread Update:
    Added speed comparison use cases between current navigating method and proposed navigation method.

    Results are fascinating. In most cases the proposed feature reduces required user actions by 50% and in some cases up to 66%.

    Really fascinating stuff.

    Tell me what you think.

    Hello everyone,

    Thread Update:
    Added paragraph about an exciting feature called Application Pins
    Users can now use the "go to last used app" gesture to switch between more than two apps.
    Animation added to demonstrate how it works.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Thanks.

    That's the cherry on the cake.

    Should be a proposal on its own but fits quite nicely with your main proposal so I'll have the set thank you very much.

    Nicely done.
