    I've been using Power Toggles for a long time now and it just gets better! Ever since v4.4 2 Kit Kat update, the location/GPS toggle takes you to the settings page first. Can this be fixed?

    I first got this to get around a tethering block from my provider, and now it's on my short list of "must install" apps whenever I set up any Android device. It's versatile, stylish, easy to configure, and free with no ads.

    This app is really cool. Could you make the airplane button turn airplane mode on and off instead of just opening settings?
