Thumbs up Toggle widgets app in Notifications Menu :)

If you can't tell, I've started using my eDGe a lot, again, after a bit of a hiatus. Today, I was reading on the eInk and the LCD side and got annoyed that I needed to go to the launcher to easily turn off WiFi to save battery.

So I set out hunting for something that would add some widgets to the notification bar like my Galaxy Note II has.

XDA came through!

Works great! I only have the WiFi one set, but it lets you add gobs.

hearty endorsement from me as well.

I've been using that for a while on my phone since the stock rom (surprisingly good) doesn't let you configure those like cyanogen mod does. luckily there is CM development and roms for my phone, but I still loved j4velin's free app enough to donate to the developer.

and when my PE recently died, that was also one of the first things I installed, works great!

the only thing it is really missing was a way to get into the screen lock management - I prefer pattern-lock on all my devices and for whatever reason, the PE doesn't let you set it even though it is possible to do so:

before using Notification Toggle, I used to use Quicker Free
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.bwx.bequick2
which is more or less similar in function, except it has its own dialog UI rather than sitting in the notification tray. but it does let you get into the security management functions like screen lock, which Entourage hid for some reason.

but the screen lock setting is now the only reason I needed Quicker Free - toggles in the notification bar are much, much nicer ;-)
