Do you want to quickly access and change all your Android settings from one place? While Android’s default settings interface does give you access to all your device settings, this is spread inside different hierarchical sections, making it a bit of a hassle to quickly get to the setting you wish to modify. That’s why many people use widgets to toggle basic settings quickly, and almost all third-party ROMs include some form of notification bar settings toggle customization.
If you would rather have a single app instead that lets you quickly access and change your device settings from a no-frills interface, you may want to give Hive Settings a shot. Developed by XDA Forum Member _lucian, Hive Settings looks similar to the new settings shortcuts provided in the notification menu in Jelly Bean 4.2. Grids of large, descriptive icons make it dead-simple to find the right setting upon one quick glance. The app also includes a built-in app manager that lets you filter, uninstall, and backup any of your currently installed user-level apps.
Hive Settings is a completely free app that’s currently undergoing active development. If you want some features added to it, the developer is welcoming your suggestions. You can find more details and the Play Store link in the application thread._________
