First thing first, this is what this app is mainly capable of. With it, you can actually make shortcuts of the apps you have from your list of activities on Android. Of course, they must be the ones installed on the device though. Still, if you can pick an activity smoothly with so many apps installed, it would be really helpful when you need the app ASAP.
Of course, this app is not only capable of making shortcuts for obvious apps on your Android. Need to be known, it can do just the same to hidden setting screens. Since they are not usually accessible, having able to access them easily is more help you can expect to get from the app. Not all apps can give quick shortcut this convenient for us, you see.
Making shortcut with QuickShortcutMaker for Android is easy. However, in case it does not work for whatever reasons, there is still one alternative you can try. It is procedure of some steps, but straight and clear ones. Follow it and you will be able to enjoy the fun of accessing apps quickly in the palm of your hand. It is handy app we have here, indeed.

Accessing your phone’s settings to locate a running app can be quite a tedious task: Android’s menu doesn’t stand out for its usability and we can take quite some time searching for the task we’re looking for.
A shortcut to running tasks and applications
However, thanks to QuickShortcutMaker we can get hold a shortcut menu that leads us straight to whatever we need at a given moment. For such purpose, we only need to download the APK to our smartphone or tablet and once the app has been installed we’ll have access to a shortcut menu.
The application comes along with a built-in search engine in which we only have to introduce the name of the app to recover it from all the installed apps, including an access to our favorite applications.
These are the main features and functions of this app:
- Filter by tasks/activities, applications, and favorites.
- Carry out searches using keywords.
- Choose between an incremental or normal search mode.
- Order the results alphabetically.
- Shows icons on the list to access them easier.
- Search history.
- Swap task icons.
- Launch actions and make sure they do what they should do.
- Check and share app information.
- Create shortcuts from your home screen.
- Access their Google Play page straight from the app.
Covering a lack in the Android operating system
This application has been implemented to correct a flaw of Google’s mobile operating system. Despite the improvements implemented in Android versions of the likes of Nougat or Oreo, the latter are still far from perfect. We’re still missing a decent task manager that allows us to locate whatever we want.
In turn, this app also fulfills the useful function of easily locating all those applications that we don’t use too often and that we sometimes find them hard to find amongst all those that we’ve downloaded to our smartphone without placing an access on our home screen.
Furthermore, it also avoids us having to install a launcher, an application that many users aren’t too keen on as they prefer cleaner versions of the operating system as well as a lower resource consumption. Requirements and additional information:
- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 1.6.
