Tile Shortcuts - Quick settings apps & shortcuts

Quickly open apps, shortcuts & websites, directly from your notification shade with icons that fit in perfectly!


Download from the Play Store here



How is this app different to other similar apps?
Other apps do not use the real app icon in the quick settings tile.
Instead, they replace the app icon with a letter or generic image.
This app uses the real app icon for the quick settings tile, making it easier for you to identify the apps & shortcuts you want to open.



SHORTCUT TILES
Apps
App shortcuts
URLs
Intents
Activities (coming soon)


TILE CUSTOMIZATION
Use the real app icon for the icon in the notification shade
Choose your own icons
Select an icon from an Icon Pack
Use actual website icons for URL tiles
Name the Tile whatever you want


TUTORIAL
youtu.be/420j_OsBLDw
Create a tile in the app (remember the number under the newly created tile name)
Open your quick settings panel and tap the edit button
Move the tile you just created (with the matching number) up into the active section of your quick settings panel
You can now use the tile!
If the tiles still do not show in your quick settings panel, this is because your device manufacturer has not included the functionality. This is not an issue with the app.


BOTTOM QUICK SETTINGS & MIUI-ify INTEGRATION
Tiles created in this app are usable in Bottom Quick Settings and MIUI-ify, allowing you to create custom icons for shortcuts

I understand what app, shortcut and url are. What is INTENT?

Can I make a shortcut that rotates the phone to left landscape, portrait or right landscape? Will I be able in the future?

For accessing or launching a certain app rapidly. One example, could be a quick search from your web browser, an another would to launch the calculator.

That may be a possibility in the future if enough people request it.
But there are plenty of other apps on the play store that give you system tiles such as screen rotation already.

This app more focuses on shortcuts to apps etc with customizable icons

Hey! Great app and I've purchased the pro version. Any chance of adding a folder option? By this I mean a way to add various apps and/or shortcuts to a folder under a single tile? I'd like this to have, for example, a weather folder that can be opened with a single tile.
Cheers and great work!

Good Idea! Thanks for supporting the app. I'll add that feature to my list 👍

Definitely try to add folder option, I was planning for an app where we can make shortcuts for folders, but it will be very nice to have the same functionality with this app.

20 is the limit at the moment.
I'll increase it to 30 in the next update
