Like the look of the new Control Centre from iOS 7? Yeah, me neither, but that hasn’t stopped developers Hi Tools Studio from releasing Control Center which is being spruiked as an iOS7 style Android Capability Control Centre.
The Play Store description has the major features listed :
- 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, Calculator, Camera, GameCenter
- Support above function in lock screen
While you can customise the app shortcuts the actual icon doesn’t change, it’s actually a pretty good effort and allows you to access the control centre from anywhere, even while in Apps. I personally don’t like the design of it but with some themeing options it could be pretty good. The downside is the swipe up to open is annoying as hell, once you’ve opened the control centre for the 50th time while trying to hit the space bar when typing, you’ll do what I did and uninstall it.
Control Centre is free in Google Play devices running Android 2.2 and upwards, it’s a 1.8MB download so why not check it out and see what you think.
