As one of the more handy options in, the Quick Settings menu gives users to common device settings.
Accessible by swiping down from the right side of the notification bar, the menu allows for toggling of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, brightness, and more.
Available for any Android device running 2.1 or later, this free application provides not only the standard Quick Settings options, but a ton of extras as well.
Even those who have the latest and greatest version of Android will find that AntTek Quick Settings is feature-rich and allows for more customization.
Once installed, the app is accessible by swiping down from the right side of your notification bar. Indeed, it is already configured with settings such as Bluetooth, GPS, auto-rotate, and brightness, and works without any user-defined options. To leave it alone, however, does the app no justice.
Open up the AntTek Quick Settings through your app tray, tap the menu in the upper-right corner, and you're presented with a number of options.
Changing the overall theme of the app is a breeze; AntTek Quick Settings preloads four themes, but there are endless configurations. Users can handpick the color, font, icons, background, and much more.
The second option accessible from the settings menu allows one to change the overall size and position of the dropdown panel. Personally, I prefer a smaller panel to the far right as it helps cut down on accidental swipes. Likewise, tapping the "change action size" menu and you'll be able to adjust how tall or wide the icons appear in the dropdown.
Action Picker is where things get really fun, allowing for deep customization. To add or remove items, simply tap the "+" symbol in the dropdown menu. This is where you'll add or delete quick settings to any number of things such as app shortcuts, direct dialing, sending messages, or Web bookmarks.
I've set up shortcuts to Google Drive files, a Google Play Book title, an Evernote file, and Gmail label. These allow me to bypass opening up each app and searching for the individual file or note.
The free version works just fine, but the Pro version ($1.99) offers even more features, including long-press toggling, unlimited actions, and additional settings options.
