Notes for Android 5.0:

* Prio instead of Silent. This is forced by priorities Google introduced in Android 5.0. Apps can only put phone in Priority mode now. This mode is effectively *same as* Silent, if no priority notifications were defined, which is default case. Priority mode has more options. Pure Silent mode can be enabled via pressing volume rocket and choosing None option only.
* Experimental Mobile Data switch can only be a shortcut to system settings.

Settings Extended puts your favorite settings or application shortcuts to the notification area and lets you access them quickly. You can instantly adjust Android settings even without leaving an application you use. Settings Extended will save your time to do better things.

You have 7 days to try out a Full Version. Then you can either stay with free basic version or buy full version extension.

* Battery indicator disappears from status bar after an application update. This is standard behaviour of Android. You need to simply launch app once and it will install status bar icon again.

* How do I setup a widget? Launch app. At the top of the screen you'll see a widget preview area with toggles your widget already has. Drag and drop a toggle to rearrange or remove it. Tap a toggle to get more options. Tap an item in the list of available toggles to add it.

* What is an in-app extension? In-app extension is like any other app. Once purchased it is available on your device like any other app. It stays with you after you change your phone too.

* My extension is not active after update. What should I do? Make sure a) you have a SINGLE user account in Google Play application - Menu - Accounts, and b) this is the account you used to purchase the extension.

* Why there is no direct switches for every setting? It's because some settings are secured by Android. You can change these settings via system settings menu only.

* What is an experimental option? A) It won't work on some devices; B) It can stop working after every new Android update; C) No fixes are possible for it. Use them at your own risk.

* Can I hide the status bar icon? Yes for JellyBeans, no for ICS. ICS does not support this option properly. Sometimes ICS leaves a black gap (empty space) instead of an icon in status bar. To avoid this ugly behavior we decided to disable "hidden" option for ICS.

* Can I hide status bar icon and keep widget at the top in Android 4.1? No, due to new Android 4.1 notification priorities. Lowest priority hides the icon but moves the widget to the bottom at the same time.

* Can I have separate sliders for Ringer and Notifications? This option is enabled automatically if your device supports it.

* Why do not allow separate Ringer and Notifications sliders for all phones? Because since ICS, official Android distribution links these two volumes and always changes them together. If you want to change this please vote for this option at Google bugs site. Click the star icon in the top-left corner:

* Is this a home screen widget? No, this is a status bar widget only.

    The app is great. Thank you. I have one suggestions though. In the ringer switch, let the user decide which options to skip through and in what order. I would like only loud and vibrate on the one side and just vibrate on the other. The remaining options I rarely use and don't want to skip through each time. That would make it even better!

    ...just fix the 2g/3g switch instead of menu button and also introduce some kind of silencing mode for Android 5. I'll give a full 5 stars without hesitation when that's available!

    Makes using any android phone child's play. Very customisable, puts everything just where you want it.

    Now it's way better! 2g/3g switch would make it 5 stars. Or option to dock the bar at the bottom of the drop down instead of the top.
