Quick Control Panel Updated, Adds Notification Support
As some of you may remember, earlier this year we spoke about Quick Control Panel by XDA Senior Member Dr.Alexander_Breen. For those who don’t recall, Quick Control Panel is a resourceful app that brings the functionality and usability of the iOS Control Center to Android devices. Quick Control Panel brings the iOS features like settings toggles and music along with an Android flavor to it in the form of a Holo design, heavy customization options, more toggling options as well as Google’s ubiquitous card-centric interface.
In the time since its initial release, Dr.Alexander_Breen has released an important update to Quick Control Panel that adds a major feature to its already strong suite of them: notifications. The latest iteration of Quick Control Panel allows you to view and manage your notifications right from the control shade, and coupled with the system-wide availability and placement of the shade, this update packs quite a punch.
Quick Control Panel is available in paid and lite version, but the developer has generously provided the full version for free to all XDA Members. Head over the Quick Control Panel thread to get started and consider buying the app to help out the developer.
