[Review] WeeSlide for Notification Center - A Mini Utility Widget
Are you a minimalist that wants nice-looking toggles in your Notification Center? Check this out!
Notification Center comes with two main widgets - weather and stocks. They're beautiful, but they're limited. You can't really use them for anything. One of the biggest parts of jailbreaking iOS 5 is improving upon the Notification Center, such that we create countless third party widgets to make it more useful in our every day lives. If you enjoy the idea of having an easy way to toggle things on iOS right through Notification Center, then I think you will enjoy this rather new Notification Center widget dubbed WeeSlide for Notification Center
by iOS developer BTPankow.
It's a very slim, nice-looking widget. It's very simple, minimalistic, and useful. It has three functions: enabling and disabling Wi-Fi, adjusting your volume via a slider, and adjusting your brightness via a slider. In the screenshots above, you can see both the volume slider (the iPod in back) and the brightness slider (the iPod in front), but you will also see that there is a Wi-Fi button on the right side of the widget.
So how do you go about using it? It's quite simple. When you install it you will see the brightness interface by default. You can slide the brightness to a setting you prefer and the brightness will change. If you want to change the volume, you'll notice that there's a button on the left that, by tapping, switches you between volume and brightness. Changing your volume is the same process as changing brightness. If you want to toggle Wi-Fi on and off, all you do is tap on the Wi-Fi button.
WeeSlide for Notification Center can be disabled to enabled at your own leisure by going into your Notification settings and dragging it between either being in Notification Center or not being in Notification Center, this meaning that you won't have to uninstall it to disable it. It's not a replacement for SBSettings, but if you hate SBSettings because of its clankiness in Notification Center, then something like this will at least give you some toggle options. Like I said, it's for minimalists. It does require iOS 5 and it will work on the iPhone 4S as well as all other devices. It's free, so check it out!
