Add Sense 5 Quick Settings to Any Device

Having your most commonly used settings as handy as humanly possible has always been a concern among Android users. Life gives us very little time to be navigating through menus and sub-menus in order to find certain settings that we may need to mess with on the spur of the moment. As a result, lots of devs have come up with very innovative ways of getting things done, like for instance, putting your phone face down to place it in vibrate mode, shaking it to take screenshots, and a few other nice implementations that would normally make anyone staring at you ask you why you are choking your device. All that is fine and fun, but sometimes all you need is simple access to toggles, but having them all scattered on the lock screen is not really an option.

With a little dash of HTC style, XDA Forum Member laehmic developed a Quick Settings clone of the one found in Sense 5. The pull down bar on most brands other than HTC are quite bland in terms of functionality, but with the Sense one, you will have most options at your fingertips. Now, please be advised that despite what this may seem like, it is not a Status Bar replacement, but rather a separate application. This presents most of the same shortcuts and functionality that you normally access, including toggles, sliders, and shortcuts for fun stuff like adb and WiFi hotspot tether.

The dev mentions that at this point, there are certain toggles that are not yet interactive (such as GPS, ADB, and mobile data), but that show the current state of the service. A root-enabled version will be implemented soon, which will include the missing functionality. In the meantime, please take it for a spin and report any bugs you may come across.

v0.5 beta
– fixed internal syncing for profile switches and sound volume seekbars
– fixed text/ switch scaling for some low density devices
– fixed text grey out on some device
– disabled ring/ note/ system volume seekbars in silent/vibrate mode
– added missing Sense 5 alarm icon
– added new option; Keep screen always on

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
