Accessing your phone's Settings to locate a running activity can sometimes be a real pain: Android's menu is not noted for its usability and finding the running task you are looking for can be very difficult.

A shortcut to running applications and tasks

However, with QuickShortcutMaker we can have a quick access menu as a shortcut that leads us directly to the one we need at that moment. To do this we only need to download the APK on our smartphone or tablet and when installing the app we will have a quick access menu.

Its main purpose is to create shortcuts to the applications in the list of activities installed on the phone and customise them. In this way, the user can even 'hide' applications with a different logo and name so that they go unnoticed.

Shortcut to apps installed on your Android and running tasks.

On the other hand, the application has an integrated search engine in which you only need to enter the name of the app to retrieve it from all installed apps, including a shortcut for favourite apps.

Key features

These are the main features of the app:

  • Filter by tasks/activities, apps and favourites.
  • Search by keyword.
  • Choose between incremental or normal search mode.
  • Sort results alphabetically.
  • Display icons in the list for easier access.
  • Search history.
  • Change task icons.
  • Launch activities and check that they do what they are supposed to do.
  • View and share application information.
  • Create shortcuts from the homescreen.
  • Access directly to its page on Google Play.

This application comes to correct what, despite the improvements that have been incorporated into Android versions, has not yet been perfected. The operating system lacks a good task manager that allows us to locate the task we want.

At the same time, it also fulfils the useful function of easily locating all those applications that we don't use often and that are sometimes difficult to find among all those that we have downloaded on our smartphone and whose access we haven't put on the homescreen.

And if that wasn't enough, its use also avoids having to install an additional launcher, an application that not everyone likes as it can consume more resources and add useless and even annoying elements such as third-party promotional applications or unobtrusive aesthetic changes.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 1.6.
