Actually, you can do the same thing in the sidebar by selecting a custom tile, then activity, then Accessibility (.homepage.AccessabilityHomepageActivity). Just takes one more step to get there.

Ok, it is a good idea and it works.

Now I have a new issue. In the Action Tiles, I have one that opens the Notification Registry. It worked some days ago but doesn't now. When I push it more than two times a notifications appears that say something like:
"Settings doesn't work
Information of the app
Close the app"


Any ideas what's happening?

Edit: I have found it: .notification.hisotry.NotificationHistoryActivity

Is it working correctly now or not? I didn't have a shortcut for that set up, but I added one and I am able to access it multiple times without an issue. I have been using the Notification Log shortcut, which is already provided in Shortcutter, you don't have to set up a custom activity for that. It presents the same info in a different way. Both look useful to me.

Can anyone offer feedback about this app?
I find it extremely useful for adding quick settings tiles. There are a number of apps that can do so, but this is the best of those I have tried. There are a lot of built in options, plus you can create custom tiles to launch apps, activities, etc.

It will also allow you to create a sidebar launcher (which I don't use) and desktop shortcuts with similar functions to the quick settings tiles.

Unfortunately, though I have had no issues using it on Android 11, it hasn't been updated since June 2020. Try the free version first.

@LeeDroid ALERT: The "Recent Apps" launcher no longer works (at a minumum, it no longer works in the Samsung S9)

Thualy, the one feature I use from this app evert day, and rely upon has stopped working:

"Recent Apps" no longer launches your phone's recent apps/task manager.

If I absolutely loved this function as I was able to remap the S9 Bixby key to launch the OEM built-in "Recent Apps" menu.

If could you please check your code to see What the new code is for calling the recent apps menu via the Android API?

If mapping your recent apps function to my Bixby key is a lifesaver when the phone's GUI crashes and I can't access the recent apps menu to close frozen applications.

I will be donating so much to your app after this is fixed because you have made the most amazing mod for android in my opinion, and you deserve every donation you get. I will be glad to contribute but I absolutely need this functionality to be restored.

Please keep up the amazing work and thank you for your time.

I know how to define the number of steps for the brightness quick settings tile, but I am pretty sure I had defined what the brightness setting was for each of those steps and now I can't remember how I did it. Is this possible and if so, how? Thanks.

(UPDATE: Now I am thinking that I might not have defined them, but I'd still like to know).

It is working now, it looks like something Google did wrong... after I updated some other Google apps on my phone, the "recent apps" menu launched successfully when opened from the recent apps button.

Thank you anyone who looked into this nonetheless, I truly appreciate it both from other form members and from the creator if he/she had the chance to look.

Because this app is so Dang awesome, and even though I don't have any need for it, I am purchasing the premium version!

On an LG G8 the 'WiFi Hotspot' pull down tile when pressed just says Wifi Hotspot Created, but doesn't create the hotspot. It instead, most of the time seems to open the Tethering settings menu... which is the same thing that the 'Tethering & Hotspot' pulldown quick tile does. Was hoping the 'WiFi Hotspot' tile would just enable it.

I'm using it daily with LineageOS 17.1 Android 10 and I don't find any functionality to be broken.

I'm also rooted too though, so just bear in mind that some functionality can be limited (not broken) by the device or the OS.

    A little more progress!

    As far as Instagram & SnapChat story's go, I haven't found a workaround as yet, it appears all apps that intercept the volume keys using accessibility have the same issue.

    v7.1.3:
    * Fix SystemUI Tuner Tile.
    * Fix Settings Secure hyperlink.
    * Begin mapping long press actions to pull-down tiles.
    * Add Cast Volume to Volume Panel (when active).
    * Improve Volume Panel enter/exit transition.
    * Stop Volume Panel closing dialogs.
    * Only show shortcut status toast when state has changed.
    * Translation Updates.
    * Bug Fixes.

    Shortcutters Advanced Power Menu can now intercept and override the system power menu on any rooted device! (V6.4.6 Currently in Beta).
