Quick Settings – An Indispensible App For Your Homescreen
We all live very busy lives, so any processes that increase productivity and save time are valuable. Quick Settings is a free application in the Android Market that allows access to many of the important settings on your Droid. It has a pleasant user interface, which one will find visually appealing. It can also be customized to meet your particular needs.
I use Quick Settings to investigate suspicious battery drain, as well as for viewing memory information. A quick glance allows me to see if my GPS or Wi-Fi has been left on unintentionally. At times, these processes are running in the background with no indication in the notifications bar.
There are a few surprises, such as being able to adjust your screen brightness natively from the app or use your phone as a flashlight. The flashlight is a little geeky, however, it has been a useful function many times! Some settings take you to the phone settings to turn on some functions, this is a security feature of android that doesn’t allow the app direct access.
After installing Quick Settings, I was able to remove multiple applications that were no longer necessary, such as multiple toggle applications and a flashlight app. This freed up valuable phone memory that I could use for other interesting apps. This application leaves nothing to be desired; I can’t think of a single additional function that is needed to improve it.
Quick Settings has proved to be very stable, demonstrated in the fact that it has never frozen or force closed. I am amazed that an application with this level of quality and funtionality is free. The application does not specifically mention a version of Android in the Market description, however, it runs perfectly on android 1.5. Head over to the Android Market and give Quick Settings a try. You won’t be disappointed.
