No. It did work. But I didn't find any use for that. My jolla died so I can't try it again and tell you exactly why but......
The thing is that sometimes people tend to go over the top for some specific case/uasge pattern. And that's OK. But when you end up with 125487 alternate ways to do something that's already possible in the system anyway then it becomes quite messy. Just like those gazillion patches or 62490 GS extensions or 9872648963 magisk modules. 10% of them are really useful and bring something new while the rest of them is just for 0.1% of users. And what particulary bugs me is when people can't accept that their system moved on so they bring back "how to" from previous versions.

And it was sailfish 2.x

I do agree with the patterns issue.
But I also believe Quickbar does not completely fall into any of these scenarios (at least up to yet). Thanks for your feedback!

My biigest gripe with sailfish for a long time was the fact that each time screen was locked it went to homescreen. Once they sorted that, apps and multitasking were just one swipe away and I always had most used apps opened anyway I really didn't need anything more.

That doesnt beat being able to launch your app from the lock screen tho.

but i don't need that.
ATM I'm on my laptop with Gnome shell and 3 desktops, everything I need in 90% of the time I have opened all the time and then just switch between desktops. The same was on sailfish, swipe left and switch. On AOSP, swipe up to bring nav bar then "multitask" button.
Why bother with opening app from lockscreen when it's faster to keep it opened and then just unlock the screen?

Like I said, I didn't find that useful to me.
