I'm not going to change the star rating, bc I still really like this app alot. But I'm annoyed that there's an update available for this app on the android market for over a month, but no update from Amazon yet. This is not the only Amazon app I've had this happen with.... if it continues, I'm not going to use Amazon anymore.

Original review:
This is a really cool app. I just downloaded it today bc it was free, but if I'd known about it before it would totally be worth the dollar. I really like how you can customize the size and location of the launch area, and how you can combine both set apps and recent apps.

Wave launcher is not as told in the comments only accessible by swiping from the bottom to the top! it is fully customizable which makes it even the best of any competitive app! you can change the way you swipe (access it by the right left or from the bottom), even the thickness of the gesture area so that it not causes any problems with any other app (or the keyboard) and you can shorten the gesture area which is an amazing feature! I am a proud user of it! And the best thing happening is that if there is anything, any idea to make wave launcher even better you send them an e-mail which gets answered for a hundred percent! Best support for the best app the store!

Loving this app. It truly enabled multitasking on my Android. There is a newer version available in the Android market that I wish would make it's way here. The update brings support for widgets. PLEASE UPDATE THE AMAZON APPSTORE!

I've been using this app for well over a month now and I absolutely love it. It recreates the same function from the Palm pre for pulling up apps exactly the same way. I've never had the app get in the way of typing like other users have mentioned. I can't even recreate the type of problems I've read other users having. It works as advertised. Some of the negative comments are probably the result of users not tweeking the settings on the app. I've never messed with any of the settings other than setting up the apps. Great buy. Very useful. EVO.

I absolutely love this app. I use it ALL the time literally. I've added my most used apps it and the are available at the swipe of a finger. One thing to note is the location where you start the swipe. Where I had it placed before it would interfere with the keyboard, but you can configure where you want the swipe to start.

It's fun while it lasts, sure. Out of nowhere, I don't even recall if I had used it right before, the blurred background thing comes up and covers my phone completely. I had to uninstall and do a battery pull to get it to work. (It's so incredibly difficult to read through, too.) G2.

This is a great app once you configure it properly for your device.
I would have given it 5 stars if you configure it to only be active when the home pages are being displayed. It can get in the way of some apps like "Can Knockdown". And on the Xoom it would be nice to have the top as an active area option. The Xoom's notification Bar is on the bottom - not the top.

I was getting frustrated with the app on the Xoom until I configured the active area thickness to be 1% in both Landscape and Portrait. Now it does not get in the way of anything at the bottom of the screen.
You can also shorten the active area to be only in the center of the screen.
Seeing all your apps on the screen at once in the app drawer is very cool on the Xoom as well.
With Wave Launcher and Smart Shortcuts combined, it makes a very powerful launcher bar.
I've take most the icons off my home page, and now use Wave Launcher instead.

I don't think this app deserves any of the 1 star reviews I saw. Every one I read was from someone who didn't take the time to configure the app, and was complaining about something that could be configured to get past the issue they were having.

Being an App developer myself it's frustrating to see reviews from people that don't take the time to try the app. If your going to take time to write a review. Take the time to try out the app, or keep you opinion to yourself. Especially if you don't pay anything for the app. It makes it harder for the developer to sell the app. And it makes it harder for customers to choose an app, when there are a bunch of bogus reviews.

I think this app is preventing my phone from going into DEEP SLEEP. I have the Evo 3D and was getting 3 days runtime before I installed it. Right after I installed it, I barely could get 10-12 hrs run time.

I saw that it starts up a service and even after killing the service, the battery life still sucks.

Finally, I just un-installed the app and now my battery life is back to normal.

Shame, would be cool to use this again.

BTW, I use CPU Spy to verify if my phone is going into DEEP SLEEP mode.

If I ever get crappy battery life, that's a good app to help trouble shoot. I usually go and see what services are running and uninstall the app with the offending service. Then, I reboot once or twice and wait a day or so and my phone usually goes back to normal.
