"What a setting widget must be"

Reviewed by / Aug 01, 2014

Power Controls allows you to created a customized widget to control all kind of settings

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.

You can choose not to display power controls icon in the status bar. However, when you roll down the blind, there will be the toggle buttons you've set.

From Home, you can see and customize brightness, screen timeout and icon for GPRS Toggle. The app is set in a good-looking layout, easy to use and highly configurable. No ads, no complaints, recommendable.

    Great customisation options but sick of tapping screen to have nothing happen then kick in a minute later. Uninstalled.

    Please add options to have the icons either vertical or in a square. Also please allow for more precise positioning.

    I set up 2 customized rows in my notifications center, they are both turned on but they are not showing up. If the developers tell me how to fix this issue i will give 5 stars. Using a galaxy s4.
