App Review: My Settings

satisfactory

The options take the users either straight to the function or give various options to the users. For example, users get five brightness options, and a sliding scale to get to the desired brightness as well.

Pros

  • Useful for newbie users
  • Five brightness options and sliding scale
  • Responsive UI

Cons

  • Looks ordinary, it's not
  • Such options are also available on OS

This is one comprehensive Android app, which may be dismissed in the first instance as ordinary or even unnecessary, simply because all the functions available through it are accessible anyway to those users who know their way through on the Android handsets. Problem is, there are many users who don't know how to access these functions and this app will prove useful for such users.

Once the app is launched, a grid like toggle options appear which include Screen Timeout Airplane Mode, Brightness, Unlock pattern, WiFi, Ringer Mode, Bluetooth, Sync, Rotate, GPS, Cell location and Networks Modes. Most of the options take the users either straight to the function or give various options to the users related to it. In Brightness users get five brightness options, and a sliding scale to get to the desired brightness as well. There are some phones which don't give all the options like this, so the app is useful for the users.

Users also get other relevant information such as battery stats, mobile network settings and unlock pattern settings as well. The user interface of the app is extremely responsive; no wonder if handset makers decide to integrate this concept in versions of their handsets. The rate at which Android is growing, there are bound to be many users who would not be comfortable with their handsets and will need help of this or similar apps.

Unusual features such as torch light and battery information is also accessible through the My Settings app. Even those users who are experienced and are friendly with their existing Android phones will find this app useful and would like the simplicity with which it has been built. The app can also be used to set the phone on silent or vibration mode or even lower power consumption settings.
