A couple weeks ago, we brought you an overview of Android 4.2. The renovated OS includes some pretty exciting features like Photosphere, multiple user profiles, and TV connect. One feature that was mentioned was quick settings. For those who haven’t heard yet, quick settings is akin to HTC’s quick settings. It’s a separate page in the notification pull down that gives you quick access to a myriad of settings and toggles. Now, Samsung Galaxy S III I9300, or any device running Android 2.2 and up, can have something similar.
XDA Forum Member joelpg has released an application that works very much like the Android 4.2 quick settings. It looks the same and it acts the same. The upside to it being an application is that users don’t need to be running a specific ROM to use it. Anyone with Android 2.2 and up can use it. Here’s the app description from the Google Play Store:
Quick access the ringtone, volume and bright adjustments selector.
Quick access the personalization options using the quick settings that works like to the new Android 4.2 feature.
Users have reported that the application works pretty well, without any issues thus far. The only downside is that the app does have advertisements.For more details, check out the original thread.
Fixed the original thread link and tags. Sorry about that!
