Jelly Bean quick settings

Are you running an older version of Android, but you’re head over heels in love with the Jelly Bean quick settings feature (available starting with Jelly Bean 4.2)? In that case, there’s some good news for you.

AntTek Quick Settings is a new app (that’s free, too), which allows you to get a very similar menu on your smartphone (something like Control Panel, but more complex). Said smartphone just needs to run Android 2.1 or later, and it doesn’t even need to be rooted.

I’ve tried the free app myself on a smartphone running Android 2.3.6, and it works surprisingly well – the screenshots above have been taken on that smartphone. You get a Jelly Bean quick settings-like menu, and the great part is that you can tailor it to your own needs, which, I guess, makes it tempting even for Jelly Bean 4.2 users. I’m saying this because, by using the app, you can add almost whatever you want to the menu (over 75 quick actions, according to the developer’s description), not just what the OS thinks is useful to you.

The only difference is that the area to swipe in order to get your menu is red, for some reason.

A Pro version is also available, adding a few more features, like long-clicking to do more, as well as unlimited actions.

Will you use this app to get a Jelly Bean quick settings menu?
