    An excellent app that can control almost anything that you could want and when matched up with tasker it becomes a irreplaceable tool.

    I paid to unlock extra features, USB tethering was the only one I needed but it did not work in tasker! Disappointed.,..

    Use it to set my power saving mode on HTC One (M7). It enables/disables power saving mode correctly, but annoyingly the power saving icon stays in the notification bar even when power saving mode has been disabled. Please fix if possible.
