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.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
