Onyx Boox Note - faster switching to note and vice versa

Hi,
Currently my main workflow is -
  • open SafariBooks
  • read
  • click icon in title bar to switch to note taking app
  • open note
  • add sentences or figures
  • close note to save it
  • click icon in title bar to switch to SafariBooks app
  • read further

Is there a quicker way?
I see two places where I would make change:
  • Allow to add note app icon in title bar (like adding Android App to status bar)
  • allow to switch application without need to exit note editing and return straight to previously edited note (this would need to add an icon to title bar and saving note content while switching).

The normal method in Android is to hold down the Home button which will display a list of recent apps to switch too. If the Onyx does not have a Home button, Button Savior will provide one.

I forget, does Button Savior savior have an 'instant-switch to previous app'? I know EAS does that, and if you prefer gestures then GMD Gestures would probably instant-switch you to the last-used app with a gesture of your own choosing.

Bluetooth controlled keys and configured Android "QuickLaunch" keyboard shortcut command setup.
To summon the "QuickLaunch" configuration page even without having it in accessible in the standard settings:
`adb -d shell am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n com.android.settings/.quicklaunch.QuickLaunchSettings`

So you can have something like
[META]+[N] : open Note app
[META]+[S] : open Safari app
