Network Type Indicator


This app is specially meant for devices that may not include this information in the status bar by default or that hide it when roaming (e.g. Xperia or Galaxy phones).

Notes:
- Due to the way Android works, a non-removable notification must be present along the status bar icon.
- Likewise the icon can not be placed in the right hand side of the status bar.
- This app is expected to work in multi-SIM devices, for the primary card, but they are not standardized, so it might not work as expected in some.

Recent changes:
2014-10-15: 1.4.3
- Bugfixes for forced closures on some devices

2014-10-03: 1.4.1
- Jelly Bean and up: Added button to notification to close it directly
- Jelly Bean and up: Added button to notification to open the system's network settings
- Simplified notification toggling
- Resource optimization
- Removed unnecessary menu entries
- BUGFIX: (Regression) Keep icon and app in sync
- Experimental workaround for undetected network changes

Perfect Does exactly what I ask of it, and does it perfectly no crashes and no force closes, it would be nice to be able to choose different icons for different network types but that's me being picky. This app is exactly what I was wanting and works seamlessly on my Nexus 5

Almost perfect I just wanted to post a question to the dev, is it possible/easy to add the signal strength dBm measurement to the notification ? I really like this app but I need others installed to easily view that info. I would very much like to only need the one app to show it all... I very much like this app based on the fact that its extremely simple to set up and use and it does not ask for any unneeded permissions. To me that tells me that I can trust you. I just really wish it incorporated signal strength.
