In this post I am going to share information about how to customize notification bar of your android Smartphone.
Notification bar provided in android is very useful as you can control your smartphone with a single touch and tap. It provides several shortcuts such as settings,Bluetooth on/off,wi-fi on off Mobile data on/off,sim switch etc. by which you can control the settings of your smartphone.
Some days back I have started to use another sim with my primary sim after which “Mobile Data(on/off)” shortcut got replaced by Sim switch option that time I searched for customizing this notification bar to add more shortcuts as it was not so handy to on/off data by taping more than one time. While googling I found this nice app called “Power Toggles” which I am currently using to manage notification bar and different shortcuts.
Power toggles provides following features by which you can customize the notification bar as per your requirement.
- Homescreen widgets and notification widget
- Expandable notification widget on Jelly Beans and above
- Lockscreen widgets on android 4.2+
- 40+ toggle options including Mobile Data On/Off, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Custom application shortcut and many more.
- 2nd and 3rd row in notification window
- Multiple shortcuts in single notification row with customizable icons.
- Folder widget
- Shortcuts on single and double tap.
- Detail level customization Toggles in settings window.
As of now I am using only notification feature of this app and finding very useful. I have added another row in notification which includes several other shortcuts which I use frequently for that you just need to follow below steps.
- First, obliviously install this app from google play store here.
- Tap on “Notification” under widgets option.
- Slide to ON at top right corner
- Tap on Customize and add the required toggles also here you can adjust their position and icons too.
- Done, now check out your notification bar you will see one more row containing selected toggles.
This app currently has rating of 4.6 with 63,300+ reviews so you can one more review to it by trying it.
