The pool of Android devices are extensive, you can purchase devices of all functions, sizes, colors and price points. The majority of them have large bright beautiful displays that are great for doing cool things socially and productively.

At times screen, real estate can get consumed quickly by all of the shortcuts to your favorite apps you frequent. Or on the other hand, your device is so large that your finger can’t access that hard to reach app on the other side of the screen using one hand.

Omni Swipe formerly known as Lazy Swipe is all grown up and ready to put on its serious face. Redesigned and redeveloped the Omni developer team revealed their app has infinite possibilities for what users can do with just a single tap or swipe with one hand.

So what is Omni Swipe? Omni Swipe is one of the most promoted apps in the Technology category on the Google Play store being featured on the Play Home page over 30 times!

The Features

Omni Swipe allows convenient access to your favorite apps, contacts, settings, and incoming notifications using just one hand.

With just one finger swipe you trigger a customizable radial menu. The radial menu can be triggered from the following areas: bottom left, bottom right, middle left, and middle right. This menu keeps what’s important and most useful to you in hands reach.

Omni ScreenshotWhile in use Omni Swipe is categorized into 3 clever sub-menus Favorites, Interact, and Toolbox.

Interact: Get your latest notifications without having to swipe down the notification bar, and keep your most important contacts as well as their various contact methods convenient.

Although on initial use it will pre-populate your most recent SMS contacts you conversed with so beware.

Favorites: Add and arrange up to 9 of your favorite apps to access quickly and easily.

Favorites category is ultra convenient. It prevents you from having to leave your home screen and search for apps that aren’t quite essential enough to be shortcutted on your home-screen.

Toolbox: Customize commonly used phone settings and switches that also can be accessed with a single swipe. Quickly access your flashlight, WiFi, rotation lock or adjust your display brightness. Keep your Android fast and responsive with the memory-cleaning speed-boosting “Booster” tool!

My suggestion to Omni Swipe would be to rename this category “Life Saver”. Life saver might be an exaggeration, but this category is sweet. Using the toolbox category, I was able to quickly turn on/off my devices flashlight and find my phone charger without waking anyone or stumping my toe on my bedpost. Also, I had the ability to adjust the sound/volume and even take a picture within the Toolbox category.

To add to the customization features, Omni Swipe includes a variety of colorful themes that you can choose from.

Only issues I came across while using Omni Swipe is at times I inadvertently triggered the application when scrolling or using the lower portion of my devices. Another issue I had was when the application is open at the top of the screen there is a yo-yo or maybe a kite not quite sure what it is. I do know that it’s forever present while using the app when you pull down on it or swipe it left to right circles fill your screen and magically an advertisement appears.

What’s New?
  •  The Activity menu has graduated to become “Interact”.
  •  Interact supports adding and removing contacts with support for third party contact methods so you can quickly and easily get in touch with the people you care most about.
  •  Expanded notifications makes it even more convenient to glance and follow conversations.
  •  A brand new, redesigned user interface for you to interact and

The bottom line is Omni Swipe is no longer “Lazy” and has grown into an application that is unobtrusive,interactive,useful and allows you to have features that are usually coveted, only to rooted devices via a one finger swipe.

With a Google Play Store Rating of 4.5 out of 5 and over 50 Million installs not to mention  it’s free. Omni Swipe everything within reach on your Android device.
