An application that, according to the developers in its description, gives us almost everything we need to handle a mobile in a more comfortable and efficient way. A tool that has varied compatibility with numerous applications and layers of customization.
What is Shortcut Tool Control about?
It is a very simple app but it offers a lot of utility. It is basically a control center that is not displayed on the screen, but rather unfolds through a small bubble. The menu that is displayed offers almost the same options as MIUI 12 in the Xiaomi, or even similar to the control center of iOS. Of course, it offers functionality and an experience much more customizable than the previous two. That is the real advantage of this tool.
Not only aesthetically, but also functionally. We can choose, among other things, the apps that are shown in the control center, in addition to set shortcuts or even a visualization of the events. All the elements are optional and removable, offering an excellent user experience by providing a tool that can come in handy on a day-to-day basis. On the other hand, it allows you to place widgets such as the music or video player. In addition, in case we have not mentioned it, it has a customization of the different aesthetic sections, either the theme or the color palette that the drop-down menu should show.
Does it work on any interface?
Normally, both the iOS and MIUI control centers are usually displayed at any time. They are tools that are compatible with all applications, appearing with a simple gesture. It would be meaningless if Shortcut Tool Control did not have that same ability, to appear at the time we want, whatever it is.
The truth is that the app is compatible with any customization box, operating system, application or menu. It appears in all these areas, being an accessible tool whenever we want. In addition, the bubble that allows us to display its menu, we can place it in either side of the screen, either on the top or bottom, where it is most comfortable.
How to enable and customize Shortcut Tool Control
This useful and simple app needs meet some previous requirements to be able to function. We must approve a series of permissions so that the control center can operate in the entire interface of the operating system. In addition, there are customizable aspects that we can modify as soon as we install the app. To enable Shortcut Tool Control, we must do the following:
- Once the app is installed, we passed the tutorial and we give the storage and other access permissions.
- In option “Enable Tool”, we will activate the control center.
- In the third option that is named by “Enable notification to keep app always run”. Allows you to have a direct access to the app in the notification bar.
- In the second section, called Grant permission, to configure the permissions granted.
We can then customize some parameters such as the apps that must be included in the menu or shortcuts such as Wi-Fi or bluetooth. A curious detail is that we can change the bubble layout, in the “Style” section, which has different drawings or we can even choose an image from storage.
