Screen organizer aims to give you right app at right time

Aviate (Beta)
Organizer tries to give you right app at right time

Aviate has lofty goals: to make your smartphone as useful as possible. This home screen organizer aims to sift through the apps on your phone to provide the right app at the right time. So if there are apps that you need for your morning routine, or ones that you use primarily at work, Aviate will show you those apps at those times of day. The app is definitely still a beta product — meaning that you shouldn’t expect it to be perfect. But it does helpfully cycle through apps and brings up logical ones for logical categories, and does save you some time. The app is in invite-only beta right now, for Android devices, but it should be more widely available before long. Free, for Android devices.
