Jailbroken iPhone users are well aware of popular Cydia tweak called Zephyr which lets them replace the physical home button with gestures. Zephyr shows the main menu and recently opened apps present in Multitasking bar by simply swiping up. The similar type of app is now available for android devices running on Android OS 4 and above.
Swipe Home Button available in Google’s Play Store is for those users who have got broken the home button/menu button or the home key is not working properly. Some users, including me, fear that they might lose the proper functionality of the Menu button due to over-use. Swipe Home button saves the clicks of physical button by giving them a complete alternative in the form of swipes/gestures.
