Modern smartphones house a big array of options of customization and reaching a specific setting options may sometimes take much time. We all prefer to access any option in just a few taps rather than delving deeper and deeper. To make this drill easier, Google introduced a new feature called Quick Settings with Android 4.2 but it has just a few toggle settings.

Wouldn’t it be nicer if you were able to access almost all settings options on your Android phone with just a single tap? The Sense 5 UI introduced with the HTC One (M7) is considered one of the most intelligent UX present on any smartphone and on of the things that make Sense even sensible is the HTC Quick Settings.

The Sense 5 Quick Settings app has now been modified to work with all Android phones with Jelly Bean, probably ICS too (not tested). The credit for the porting of this amazing app goes to XDA member laehmic, so all props to him. The app is available in two variants: one for non-rooted devices and the other for rooted ones. The root version has naturally more features.
