Widget can contains between 2 and 8 customized toggle buttons, including WiFi, Screen brightness, Bluetooth, data connection, GPS or even tethering. Add as many toggle as you want (there are up to 14). You can set default button color, busy/unknown color and active color. Once done, enable it and it will be automatically add to your status bar.

    So much more customizable than other apps of its kind! This app made android on par with iPhone in the only department it was lacking. I don't know how I ever used my phone without this!!

    Now that there isn't any power widget in Lollipop, sensible Android phone owners will be rushing to this app!
