Android: The notifications drop-down is a great way to get quick access to incoming messages and alerts, and if you want even more control over your notifications pane, 1Tap Quick Bar is an Android utility that lets you customise that drop-down with shortcuts to system options, frequently used applications, shortcuts, even contacts to call or email with one tap.
Depending on the version of Android you have or the spin that your manufacturer has put on it, the notifications drop-down menu may just display incoming messages and email, or it may have some useful buttons to help you manage your phone. Regardless of what you have, 1Tap Quick Bar gives you control over how clean or how cluttered with tools your notifications bar is. You can add buttons to direct dial a contact, direct message a contact, open specific phone settings like your Wi-Fi settings or audio settings, and launch commonly used applications. Best of all, you can add as many bars to your notifications drop-down as you want, and stuff them all full of tools.
1Tap Quick Bar is free to download and supports Android 2.0 and higher. You get one button bar for free. After that though, you'll have to start paying per bar. What do you think? Do you already have features like this on your Android device? Let us know in the discussions below.
