    Slider Widget - Volumes's review

    Published: 2012-03-20, by Manu Galvez.

    Slider Widget is a simple widget for adjust volume and brightness of your device

    • Good-looking widget
    • ICS-like layout
    • Ease of use
    • It should include more switches
    • Low-customizable

    "Just slide it!"

    First off, remember that this isn't an app, but a widget: you have to launch it by long pressing home screen > widgets > slider widget. There's only one size widget, so it will appear automatically. What does this widget do? It is a 6-switches widget that allows you to control basic features of your phone: brigthness, ringtone volume, music volume, notifications volume, alarm volume and system volume. Thus, basically sound and brightness. The way that it works is quite interesting: just tap on the icon and it will appear a toggle bar. Select the level and tap out of the widget. That's it.

    You can also access settings from the toggle bar (there's a small icon of a wrench). From settings you can enable/disable automatic brightness, indicator, notifications, vibration and widget behaviour. The widget is cute: black bacground and small icons with a circle bar that indicates the level. Settings layout looks like ICS.

    In summary, an easy-to-use and good-looking widget to control brightness and volume of your device. Recommendable.

    A small Widget that gives control of the screen brightness and the sound volume directly from your home screen. You can easily manage those with the widget's slider or your hardware buttons. With a double click, you can also use the buttons to toggle. Slider Widget shows 6 Categories (e.g brightness or ring volume), which you can choose from 7 categories (more below). You can also change the order of the categories displayed in Slider Widget.

    If you want to help translating Slider Widget into your language, you can! There is an Crowdin project:

    NOTICE!: There is a - systemwide - Bug on some ICS devices that widgets aren't shown in the widget section after their installation. After a force close of the launcher or a reboot the widget should be shown. Sorry for that.
