"Switch the most usual Android settings with a just few taps"

Reviewed by / Aug 08, 2011

Quick Settings is an easy app to access some key controls.

With the same spirit as Quick Battery, Sergej Shafarenka developed and has kept updated Quick Settings. It's one of those simple apps that tries to make our life easier by having the most important sliders and switchers together.

With just a couple of taps you can change your volume, wifi and GPS settings. Well, you're probably thinking to yourself that your phone can already do that without any third party app, and it'd be true. Quick settings just try to save you some taps or the trouble to look for wherever every option could be. To launch the app, long-press the search button or look for a shortcut in your status bar. Quick Settings is customizable through the Menu button if you need to add more options.

This app's for free. If you feel like it isn't too much or if you want to collaborate with its developer, try Quicker instead.

    Doesn't do anything that can't be done through the notification bar. The only interested in feature, that was stopping screen turning off, doesn't works on kitkat.

    There is a continued problem where there is no option to turn mobile data on. It is greyed out and unavailable. I am not getting SMS, MMS or data connection of any kind.
