    Default Launchers & Quick toggles questions

    Hi. I'm trying to buy a Nexus 5. I had it before and one thing that annoys me is the lack of quick toggles (for the Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, Screen Rotate, etc.) like what one can do on a Samsung/Sony/HTC/LG/Motorola phone.

    Now, i know installing launchers does not have a quick toggles feature in its UI but my question is:

    1. IS there any launchers out there that has the option to have quick toggles in the phone's UI? (like when swiping your fingers from top down to the screen?
    2. What alternative quick toggles app that i can install for my Nexus 5?

    Please advice.

    Nova (and I am sure many other launchers) can create shortcuts to both the Notification shade and Quick Toggles.

    With Nova I created two different "actions". One expands the notifications and the other opens the quick settings. And for the rest I use Power Toggles, hidden in the notifications.

    I just use the built in Android power control widget.

    Nova is my favorite stock-like launcher but my favorite is Lightning Launcher Xtreme. But if you want toggles in the notification bar, you should definitely give Power Toggles a try, and if that's not right for you consider rooting and getting a custom ROM that allows the feature within the system itself.

    And how about a quick toggle for stopping all tasks running (via the multitasking button on the lower right of the screen) like what one can do on the Xperia Z2 and the Galaxy S5. Is there an app for that?

    Please advice.
