NOTICE!: There is a – systemwide – Bug on some ICS devices that widgets aren’t shown in the widget section after their installation. After a force close of the launcher or a reboot the widget should be shown. Sorry for that.
Slider Widget user reviews :
Works well. 4 star only because the ringtone and system switch both correspond and do the same thing, i would rather see the system one turned into notification sound level. Just a thought. ( notification volume is seperate in my settings)
Simple and effective This is fantastic widget. It serves its purpose to perfection and it’s free. Thanks to developer(s),keep up the good work guys. By the way a similar widget with additional settings control such as Wi-Fi, GPS and so on would be nice. HTC Incredible S
Perfect Best brightness app for the HTC one. It never brings up that useless menu bar every time I change the brightness
Simple, Clean, Easy I appreciate the simple configuration menu. The toggles can match well with ICS, CM10, and current white theme I have. Thank you! Bery satisfied! ***** Any way we could have the option to match the slider dialogue with the toggle itself? For example, give it transparency?
