Notification Toggle for Android is a free app which creates toggles in the notification panel and allows you to quickly switch Bluetooth, WiFi, fight mode, adjust brightness, mobile data, and much more. This free app even allows you to add app shortcuts into the notification panel. The best part is that the app is highly customizable and also allows for an additional second row of toggles.

Some would argue that what is the use of notification toggles as Android already comes with this feature. Yes Android (versions after ICS) comes with notification toggles but in most roms they are on the other page of the notification panel which can be brought up by swiping to the other side, clicking on a button in the notification panel, or bringing down the notification panel with two fingers; this just makes the process more complicated.

A better solution is to have the notification toggles in the main part of the notification panel which can be brought down with a single swipe. Also by using Notification Toggle for Android you get the ability to fully customize all aspects of these toggles.

Notification Toggle for Android offers the ability to add toggles in notification panel and customize them extensively. I personally always like having toggle in the main notification panel instead of the second page. Also if you are running an older version of Android (before Jellybean) then it might not have toggles and this app provides a simply way of adding them. The app has a very clean and simple interface which makes using the app a breeze. Plus the ability to add app shortcuts in the notification bar is really useful.
