GO Switch Widget
10,000,000 - 50,000,000 downloads
- Amount of switches
- Should be more customizable
- It would be great more widget sizes
GO Switch Widget is one of the most complete widgets on Google Play
The reason? The amount and above all, the utility of the switches it includes. Bear in mind though that this is a widget that can only be place on your screen if you're already using GO Launcher EX. There are two available sizes: 1x1 and 4x1. Of course the most interesting is the latter. It allows you to place up to 6 switches out of 20 available. Just take the ones you use most frequently: WiFi, ringer, brightness, bluetooth, GPS, auto-sync, airplane mode, auto-rotate, vibrate... among many other. What's more you can toggle position modification.
Removing switches to add new ones is as easy as long press home screen, choose GO Widgets and then GO Switch Widget. Then select the six switches you want to place on the widget and un-select the ones you want to remove. You can even change position of the switches in the widget by lick and toggling the icon. That easy.
In a nutshell, another great widget developed by GO Dev Team, maybe the most useful. We've just found two catches: it needs more widget sizes and it would be great if it were more customizable.
In 4x1 style, up to 12 toggles and 2 controls are supported. Compare to other switch widgets, you can just simply drag the toggles to change their positions in the widget. Moreover, like other GOWidgets, theme is also supported.
To make it work, you must install the latest version of GO Launcher EX which is the most popular home launcher app in Android Market.
