Like stated above, the beauty of Swipe Pad is how it makes 12 of your favorite apps easily accessible within Android. Swipe Pad is simple to use and simple to customize on the fly. To do so, swipe in from the top right of the screen and hover over one of the "portals."
Also, there are some behind the scenes preferences you can set by launching Swipe Pad from the app drawer. From here, you can change the side of the screen that you swipe in from, turn on/off sounds, turn on/off haptic feedback, change the positioning of the app titles, and turn on/off Swipe Pad.
Swipe Pad will work on either an Android phone or tablet. However, it is kind of a pain to use on a phone or tablet if you're using a case since you need to swipe from outside of the screen in. If you use your phone or tablet bareback, like a true boss, then you'll have no issues using it.
I find Swipe Pad - Hyperspace Launcher to be a very useful and easy to use app. It isn't for everyone, but I find that if you use it long enough, you'll learn to love it. I think the app has a little more growing room in the customization space, so for now I'm giving it:
