A new Android application emulates the Control Center feature found in iOS 7, and it’s currently available as a free download from the Google Play Store.

This isn’t the first time that we show you how to make Android look more iOS 7-ish, but this time around we’re only looking at this particular iOS 7 feature that’s replicated by the application, so don’t expect your handset to look like an iOS 7-running iPhone once you install it.

In iOS 7, Control Center is a new feature that contains pretty much all the settings you’d need quick access to including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, screen rotation and plenty of other toggles. To activate it, you have to swipe up from the bottom at any time, on any screen.

You could always argue that Android already has this functionality covered, but at the same time you may want to try the Control Center Android app that’s currently available in the Play Store.

On top of looking like its iOS 7 counterpart, here’s what features the app has to offer:

  • Support iPhone iOS 7 UI Style and Assistive Touch feature
  • Support same look and touch feeling with iPhone
  • Support wifi on/off
  • Support rotation on/off
  • Support volume up/down
  • Support data connection(2G/3G) on/off
  • Support volume silent
  • Support bluetooth and flashlight on/off
  • Support English, Chinese language
  • Support Airplane Mode, Brightness, Vibration function
  • Support quickly open Clock
  • Support quickly open Calculator
  • Support quickly launch Camera
  • Support quickly open GameCenter
  • Support above function in lock screen

The app has a 3.7-star rating out of 521 reviews, and requires Android 2.2 or later and 1.8MB of storage.

    People on G+ are asking “why?”. For da lulz :D

  • Paco

    Wahts the name of the app

    • Duh Koda

      I think it’s just called “Control Center” and the developer is “Hi Tools Studio.”

      If you search “control center for android” it should be the first one.

  • useless. why would anybody want to do this? all the functions are easily available in android as it is. why double it? i don’t see the point or value in this. .who codes such a thing? what a colossal waste of time.

    • Chris

      Because it’s android and they can… lol

    • Jusephe

      Well i think that lot of android fans like look and feel of iOS 7, and they just want it on their phones.

  • Fit Club

    Oh my word, why would any android user want to emulate a ios feature that was copied from android? That’s like the tail wagging the dog!

    • LAKAME

      Because we can :D

    To be fair, iOS 7 did NOT invent this, they copied it (like everything Apple does) from Samsungs Touchwiz interface.

    Despite the Apple fanboy crap, Apple is not the innovator company they try to claim themselves as. They just copy others and slap a patent on it so they can sue everyone.

    • jz100

      Samsung really should sue Apple over it.


        i agree, but i think Samsung are holding back because, their biggest display and microprocessor customers are apple. google should sue them on the behalve of all andriod device manufactures.

        • chirag

          whell i think apple moved on from samsung

          • EDDIMUNDO

            Only 40% of the microprocessor production. Because their new partners can’t make as much as samsung is able too

          • EDDIMUNDO

            Not entirely, the new company cant make as much as samsung can. But by 2016 they will move very thing entirely.

    • Jusephe

      Well i will rather say anything before we see the next version of touchWiz.
      Then we could talk about copiing (or not )

      “they copied it (like everything Apple does) from Samsungs Touchwiz interface.”
      A “little” bit exaggerated, don’t you think so ?

  • Seth Forbus

    I love how apple needs a huge IOS update for anything to be added to the operating system, and Android developers can just add it from an app.


      that shows how effiecent andriod is compared to ios

  • SeraZR™

    apple’s gonna sue this as well ;) :D

        • Chutiya


    • Chutiya

      GO eat your shit

      • SeraZR™

        lol Retard XD

  • Dash Foster

    This is a really good app, you can make the arrow at the bottom go away in the settings

  • tongku04

  • Rob Vasseur

    why would someone buy an android to make it like an iphone

  • Ayn

    Dude. What is the point of reviewing an app without giving either a name or a link to the app?

    That’s like a restaurant review which doesn’t tell readers the name or location of the restaurant.


  • Willie D

    Thanks for the link for the app… there are a bunch of similar apps but not this one.
