Power menu controls

Android 11 has a power menu which is mostly used for home controls. But if you are not using any smart home appliance, the space is basically wasted.
This app adds handy device toggles to the space.

Examples:
  • Rotation lock
  • Wake lock
  • Screen timeout
  • Brightness toggles
  • Media volume toggles
Some setup screenshots from users:

I dont want to point out the obvious, but all those things are available from the notification shade....who is going to make it harder to reach them by pressing a button to get at them?
All these are NOT available in the Quick Tiles on a standard Google ROM. For example, Wake Lock & Volume. Also, the dev is asking for suggestions, so YOU could ask for something that is not available as a quick tile.

A. A11 power menu has useless space already, so this makes it useful
B. Power button is easier to reach than pulling down the quick settings
C. Dev wanted to make it, so he did xD

Nice app!
I would like to launch apps, like GCAM and standard Camera in selfie mode (using a shortcut or an intent).
(It may be possible to use Tasker for this.)

One use case is to do actions without unlocking the phone (gloves, sweaty fingers etc).
The behavior on My Sony Xperia 5 ii if the phone is locked is that I need to enable flashlight, then the lockscreen opens and I have to press the Power once to turn off the screen before the flash turns on.

I love the features added. But since you ask ;)
  • The wake-Lock is commonly labeled as "Caffeine" in the custom ROMs I have used before (its normally featured as a QuickTile)
  • The Caffeine feature normally allows some default break-points in time for when it will automatically turn off. eg 5min, 10min, 30min or never.

    Awesome app !!
    Can you add Airplane mode?
    No. No way to properly enable airplane mode with or without root.
