gX Switches is an open switch widget system that allow you to add switch on your Home screen. Unlike other widgets applications (power widget, power manager, widgetsoid), gX Switches is opened for plugin extensibility!
Common switches are available (airplane mode, application launcher, ringing modes, Bluetooth, clock and alarms, wifi teether, auto synchronization, data usage, auto orientation, screen timeout, GPS, common settings, brightness, favorites, locale action, etc) but other applications can add their own switches by extension (developers' library code is opened on demand).
A "Locale action" switch can be connected to any Locale plugin compatible application. See all plugins available on Google Play by searching "Locale plugin". With this last switch, you can run everything you want!
Widgets are fully customizable with android classical skins (Gingerbread or Holo based themes) or derived themes through skin plugins (developers' library code is opened on demand).
It is FREE, NO ADS at all (for now and in the future).
Depending on your Android version, many features can be disabled. Google sadly closed many controls from v4.0 (GPS activation), and a lot more from v4.2 (airplane mode, screen timeout control for example), so if you are in that case, these features could be used only if Secure Settings is installed on your device, with its helper activated (root mode only). Secure Settings is free, available on Google Play. gX Switch can call it if needed in the background.
