    Default Pull Down Power Toggles

    Is there an app or a way to add pull down power toggles to the Nexus 7? I know that you can pull down on the right side of the screen and get somethings, but I want something more like the Power Toggles app where with one click I can turn off WiFi or cell service. The default only brings you to the Settings to do so. The Power Toggles Widget is nice, but if it is on the screen, I am afraid that I will tap a button by mistake. Thanks!

    Push and hold wifi to shut it off. Tap to take you to settings. Thus works for all settings in the pull down menu.

    Me neither until a couple of days ago when I decided to try it just for the heck of it. It works exactly the opposite of a samsung tablet.

    I always use Power Toggles in the Notification Shade, not on the Homescreen. You need to open Power Toggles, then tap "Notification," and then set up your toggle bar as you normally would on the homescreen. When done, you'll have a nice Power Toggle bar when you swipe down on the left.

    I still feel that tap toggle and long press menu is more consistent to accepted conventions of touch UI.

    I agree, the n7 feels unnatural.

    It is the same way on my Moto X and Nexus 5. And I wholeheartedly agree, a tap should turn it on/off and a long press should be a shortcut into settings.

    I use Powerful Control, which gives me one-click control of wi-fi, bluetooth, brightness, rotation, and more. It also is where I get notifications, control Scrabble Helper, see what the last thing I added to the clipboard, etc.

    Not knowing any of this when I recently purchased my Nexus 7, I simply put the "Power Buttons" widget from the pre-installed widget choices onto one of my home screens.

    That's the way mine works. I tap to change the setting on or off and long press to go to the settings. Maybe your version of a tap is too long.

    Power toggles on the notification shade is great. I also suggest that if you want quick access to more settings.
