How To Add Custom Settings Shortcut Widgets On Android

Android is arguably the best mobile OS out there right now. Almost everybody you know who uses a mobile phone might be using Android on it. Apart from the amazing features that Android supports, its best ever feature is the way that you can customize it. Android is a highly customizable OS. Right from the Lockscreen, to any application you want, you can customize almost about everything on your Android device. Android devices are popular because of their ability to add a widget(s) on the homescreen itself. Widgets are a much easier and handy way to show the information you need at your fingertips. There are tons of applications available on the Google Play Store that can be added as a widget on your Android device’s homescreen right now.

Coming back to the widgets, Android even lets you have specific-Settings widgets, like the Battery Saver Settings panel right on your homescreen.
