I'm proud to present my new app: Notification Toggle.

With this app, you can place different toggles into your Android status/notification bar for quick access without having a dozen toggle-widgets on your homescreens

You can choose which toggles to display in the settings of the app. You can also change the color of the icons as well as the icons completly to fit your systems design.

The app is for free in the Play Store, would be nice to get some feedback

Download

Some notes:
  • not every toggle will work on every device: especially the flashlight functionallity is very erratic and every manufacturer implemented it somehow different. you should install TeslaLED in addition to notification toggle
  • some settings aren't changeable by user apps, so it will bring you directly to the android settings (like GPS since Android 2.3)
  • if have a rooted device, you can install the app in /system/app to directly toggle GPS even on Android 2.3+ Click here for more information
  • Issues with the TalkBack service? See here
Some nice icons: (you can also use this app on Android 2.3+ to download the icons)

Works great, needs some theme support or basic coloring of the icons would be great,

Any chance that we can change stuff straight from the status bar, without having the pop-up menu like in CM7 status bar,

yeah, some skinning stuff is on my to-do list... edit: icons are now changable through menu -> skin
toggling without the pop-up is possible on some devices (e.g. on a htc legend with stock rom) but on most it handles only one click-event per notification. unfortunately it seems not to be possible for user apps to change that

Nice work. I'm just curious why you can't directly toggle GPS when something like SwithPro can.

I noticed on my HOX, that on the top left status bar, the notification toggle symbol is showing. Is that normal?

Thanks, Great App

This is normal. You can resolve this by pressing the Menu key on your device and selecting 'Preferences'.
When in the Preferences menu, look for 'Status bar icon' and then select 'Transparent' to hide the icon.

Hope I've helped you.

Other than that, the app is completely amazing by the way.

To try and resolve this, you could try the following:
  • Delete the application and reinstall it.
  • Clear ALL data of the app.
  • Delete the application, restart your device, and then reinstall it.
If that doesn't work, make sure to report it as an issue. If it does work, I'm glad to have helped you.

well, there might be some hacks to somehow toggle the GPS, but the official google API doesn't allow you to do that.
actually, android itself turns the GPS off is no app is using it. so google intention is that you let the gps settings enabled and let the system handle turning it on and off

but if you leave it on, and u open the facebook app, it will use the GPS to search for locations for you to check in... and alot of other apps do that too

to save battery ,i just turn off GPS completely and this way, apps dont try 2 use the GPS (which does suck some juice) to get locations
