Panels - custom sidebar, widget and app launcher app
An always-on-top sidebar, with apps, shortcuts, contacts, widgets and gestures
Panels is a launcher on the edge of your screen, that provides a quick access to your favorite applications, shortcuts, contacts, widgets and the app drawer. No more scrolling through launcher pages, contacts and settings, simply swipe the edge screen. Boost your multitasking and increase productivity!
And the many ways to multitask is not all. Unlike other sidebar apps our edge screen has many features for you to customize. You can alter sidebar's row and column counts and make the edge screen as big or small as you like. You can also customize colors and position of each and every panel, change icon sizes and labels, set individual gestures for any item.

Due to the series of unfair reviews by MIUI users caused by the ridiculous permissions required by this manufacturer, I am forced to give up the support for MIUI devices. Sorry!
