Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?).

Status Bar Flipper and Navigation Bar Editor for Xperia T and V
The notification bar toggles that were added in Android 4.2 have proven themselves to be immensely useful to most users. That said, they’re not perfect. For example, the CyanogenMod team was quick to reverse the toggle functionality such that a tap toggles the setting and a long-press takes you to the settings page. Furthermore, it’s always nice to be able to customize the options that are modifiable.
If you’ve got yourself a Sony Xperia T or Xperia V and wish to supercharge your status bar toggles, XDA Recognized Themer NuriJ‘s Status Bar Flipper Mod may be exactly what you’re after. While the modification leaves the traditional tap vs. longpress functionality intact, it allows for immense customization. This comes in the form of both toggle order and visible toggles, with 24 possible in all. Furthermore, the mod also brings slider controls for brightness and volume settings in a separate pane, as well as a handy navigation bar softkey editor.
If you wish to make the most of your Xperia T or V status and/or navigation bars, you may wish to give this a shot. Head over to the original thread to get started.
