I wish I could say I was the first one to post a thread about this, but google123 beat me to the punch here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...seriously.html
Nonetheless, I'll explain this amazing app.
I was searching AppBrain and found SwipePad Beta and thought it was a swype-like keyboard, but it wasn't. It was so much better. With SwipePad Beta, all you have to do to access 12 of your favorite apps is drag your finger from a specified location to the middle of the screen, such as the left edge, the right edge, or any corner. It is amazing. DL now.
