Notfication Toggle widget for Android

Notification Toggle is rapidly becoming one of my favorite widgets for my Android Phone. The free widget developed by XDA member J4velin creates an easy and convenient way to toggle settings from the drop down window on the Android status bar.

The toggle screen presents a finger friendly menu of icons from which you can toggle WiFi, Bluetooth, sound, adjust screen brightness, screen orientation, toggle flight mode as well as add shortcuts or custom apps. (see screen captures below).

 Developers notes:

-not every toggle will work on every device
– some settings aren’t changeable by user apps, so it will bring you directly to the android settings
– “all in one” toggle might display a dialog to choose the setting to toggle. if this happens then your device doesn’t support notification with more than one click-events
– if you see the settings activity when clicking the “all in one” or the brightness toggle: exit the settings activity with your back-button, not with the home-button

-if you don’t like the default icons, press your menue button in the app, select ‘Skin’ and use your own icons.

You can download a copy of the Notification Toggle widget from their Android Market link here.
