Change the locale (language / country / variant) of your Android device. That's all. This app does one thing and does it well.
Note: This app will not work as-is for Android 4.2 or later. Since Android 4.2 the permission required to change the locale has been restricted to system apps only. It's possible to give the app permission if you have a rooted device either by granting the permission with the 'pm' command (pm grant com.sweetiepiggy.everylocale android.permission.CHANGE_CONFIGURATION) or by moving the apk from /data/apps to /system/apps. An app like "/system/app mover" might make this easier: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.j4velin.systemappmover
There are no ads. The only permission required is CHANGE_CONFIGURATION, which is needed to change the locale.
Take note that if a locale is not supported by your phone or your app then you may not notice any change.
Feedback and suggestions for improvement are most welcome.

A locale switcher should ship with every Android device. Glad to find one that doesn't require sketchy permissions and constantly spam you with ads.
