Using the app switcher


One of the best parts of Front is that it integrates with your favorite tools for easy access to customer data and other apps from your inbox.

You can easily open your favorite apps and toggle between them in the app switcher, which is always visible on the right side of Front.

The app switcher is the vertical sidebar on the right edge of your Front inbox. You will see a list of icons that represent each app you have pinned.
