Everywhere Launcher is a sidebar app (edge launcher) that allows you to open sidebars by touching/swiping any screen edge so that you have your apps, shortcuts, widgets, contacts always available only a single touch or swipe away.
This app allows to have multiple different regions at the screen edge and each region can open up different sidebars depending on the gesture on it. This way you have all your content just one swipe or touch away, no matter in which app you currently are.
Add an arbitrary number of apps, shortcuts, widgets or folders to a sidebar
Add an arbitrary number of apps, shortcuts, widgets to a folder inside a sidebar
Arbitrary number of handles (touchable regions, whose touch open a sidebar)
Put those handles to the left or right side or even to the top or bottom of your screen
Many triggers (gestures) available (slide up/down/left/right, click, double click, long press) which will open a sidebar
Enable multiple triggers per handle (for example, you can open "all apps" sidebar if you swipe right on a handle and open "recent apps" if you slide down on the same handle)
Sidepages with search functionality and predictive search (T9)
Action sidebar - a trigger on a handle will DIRECTLY start an action, it can't be faster
Action folders - click the folder to open the first entry in the folder, swipe the folder to open the folder

GET_TASKS... to get recent tasks on Android <5... doesn't do anything on android >=5
I try to only add special permissions if they are runtime permissions, so I don't and won't add internet permissions. Following special permissions are optional and will be requested at runtime only (on android devices with android 6 or higher) and only if you use a feature that needs it:
READ_CONTACTS... needed to include contacts in sidebar/sidepage
CALL_PHONE... needed so make a direct call shortcuts
WRITE_SETTINGS/READ_SETTINGS... used for special actions like changing volume, brightness and similar
