Android 4.2-Style Quick Settings on All Android Versions
In the the 4.2 update to Jelly Bean, Google brought a very useful feature to stock Android that has been available in several custom ROMs for quite a while now: quick settings controls in the notification shade. While no currently shipping devices, many would still like to enjoy some of the concepts introduced into Google’s latest and greatest. That’s why instead of waiting for the update, XDA Forum Member joelpg decided to make his own 4.2 Jelly Bean-style quick settings app for Android. The best part is that it runs on all Android versions from 2.2 Froyo and up!
You can access 16 different settings including WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound, Vibrate, Auto-Brightness, Auto Rotation, Screen Stay On, Sound Effect, Haptic Feedback, Dial Tone, Screen Timeout, Ringtone, Volume, Ring Mode, and Brightness Level. Many of these are toggles, while others bring up the control interface for that feature. For toggles, you also get an indication on whether the feature is currently enabled or disabled.
You can learn more about the app in the original thread.

While many people are quick to denounce all streaming services as being a variable of...
