CUSTOM PROFILE IN ONE CLICK. Widget has to be manually added to home screen after installation. Don't look for it under APPS, look under WIDGETS.

Configurable widget on your home screen saves space and many clicks. Multiple settings can be toggled at the same time in a single profile. Possible profiles include night mode, meeting, travel, flashlight, car, battery saver and more. For example, Airplane Mode and WiFi can be turned on together with a single click (good for places with bad reception where there is WiFi to save battery life and to make free calls/texts with apps like GrooVe IP Lite). SADLY IN ANDROID 4.2+(JELLY_BEAN_MR1) AIRPLANE MODE IS NO LONGER DIRECTLY AVAILABLE (the app will take the user to the airplane setting in ANDROID 4.2+). This free ad-supported widget supports single profile only. Paid version without ads is available here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mk.generictogglewidgetpaid

All feedback/requests are welcome.

NOTES:
1) Widget does not do anything unless user taps it. This app does not monitor the state of the device, so it is possible to get into situation where the widget is showing the wrong state. For example, lets assume the user configured the widget as a simple Bluetooth on/off switch. Tap on the widget and the switch is now in ON position and Bluetooth is now enabled. Then, if the user manually goes into settings and disables Bluetooth (or some other app disables Bluetooth), widget will remain in the ON position. THIS IS BY DESIGN.

2) This version only supports single profile, but more than one widget can be added to the home screen(s) and all copies of the same widget will toggle together with one click no matter which copy is clicked. As such the user may choose to add this widget on all home screens to save the hassle of scrolling between home screens/remembering which home screen the widget is on. 2 different profiles at the same time are possible by installing both paid and free versions. If you need multiple profiles without any ads on your device, please get the paid version and contact the developer.

3) LED Flashlight works on most devices. Handy in Android 4.2+ right from lock screen.

    I suppose this would be useful for those people that have a need to set a few things in the list of what this widget can do at one time, although I use many different free apps that do most of my setting changes automatically based on time or location. However, I would have found this very useful if it could handle more than one profile. Yes, I know you can have up to two profiles using the paid

    I wish I were able to change the looks of the widget or had some skins to choose between

    Great widget and incredibly helpful/responsive developer. Have bought the pay version in support, even though the free one works fine. Especially like the customize feature. Wish all the developers were as incredibly helpful/responsive as Max.
