Default [app] droidEssential; toggle / shortcut to settings + taskManager + fullscreen support + recent apps

Good day, people!


I'm pretty new to Android, and this is my 2nd app
The app's called droidEssential.




This is not a notification bar replacement but an extension to it.

You can toggle or jump to Brightness, USB Debuging, Wi-Fi / Cellular Network, Auto Rotation, Auto Sync, Bluetooth, GPS, Ringer / Media / Alarm Settings.

plus :
■ Recent Apps
 switch between apps
 is-app-currently-running-indication
 app kill (swipe down from the icon)

■ Terminator button
 Single Click: Kill all the apps
 Double Click: Kill all the apps + Turn off screen
 Long Press: Turn off screen

■ Fullscreen support
 bring down the Notification Bar during fullscreen state

■ and many more!

■ in the future
 NFC ability
 Youtube (video) support

■ Tested Devices
 HTC Desire HD : 2.3.4 Gingerbread
 HTC Desire HD : 4.0.4 ICS

Here's a short Youtube video
Its website
And its Google Play page

It has 2 in-app-purchase, a dollar each.
One is called "Advance Pack". Right now, it gives you one new toggle. A toggle that merges WiFi and Cellular toggles into one.
The other one is "Developer Pack", it gives you the ability to toggle USB Debugging.
New features will be release time to time.

---
as I only own one phone, the HTC Desire HD. So, it'd be nice to have some feedback and bug report from people.

And, as an appreciation, you can enable the "Developer Pack" by signing in to this appspot page using your Google Account


Regards, Hiro

Wink OS4+ supported

My phone HTC Desire HD was running 2.3.4 Gingerbread.
I've upgrade it to 4.0.4 ICS this morning and did a quick fix to all my apps.
All are tested and should be working as expected on OS4+

a user has told me that, he's stuck at the "Toggle settings", the program kept telling him "unable to sign in"
has anyone gotten the same message?

I've been testing with different Google accounts and had no problems...
The python script is so simple and don't think that's what causing it.

I've just uploaded a newer version that displays more error codes.
It will be available within few hours

Thanks for those of who helped me debugging my App! Your deeds will live on forever in my server!!! XD

I learned something in the past 2 days.
1. though you are supporting old devices, use the newest SDK
2. once you switch to a newer SDK, many deprecated methods will rise, deal with'em.

I had my HTC Desire HD upgraded from 2.3.4 Gingerbread to 4.0.4 ICS.
Oddly, the deprecated methods/functions are still working.
For best compatibility possible, maybe someone decided to include the full library inside the phone?

I've been working on the compatibility issue in the past few days.
Now that I've checked my code line by line and had updated my library. Hopefully this will solve the problem.
Sorry for the annoyance.

If there's a problem, send me a short description, fell free to give me a yell!!

Regards, Hiro

btw, the 3rd point I'd going to add is
3. use Nexus (and this is what I'm going to get next, when possible )

I assume Google will strip out those deprecated methods.

It's been a while since the last update

new updates
■ display detailed error messages
■ dE-Panel can be brought down from notification or long pressing the Search Button.
  You might want to enable "Destroy On Collapsed" option in the "Basic" setting if you don't want the panel blocking your view.
■ auto off timer for time/availableMemory/batteryInfo display
■ new network / authentication class
