The developer of GoToMenu, @Dzybba, tweeted us about a new app called, “setting bar”. It actually looks like a pretty functional looking drop down status bar. Finally I can have the functionality of my N900’s status bar again. It’s the best looking one I’ve seen so far.

  • Has animations to slide down. You can turn that off
  • Can appear in any app (though you can set where the app will work AND where the app should NOT work)
  • Here it is over Opera Mobile
  • General Settings
  • Adjust brightness level with that slider
  • Can set the brightness level bar NOT to appear
  • Battery indicator says how much percentage wise
  • Signal circle (absolutely useful, so many times I’m wondering why this app/site loading slowly, I have to go back to menu to see the signal)
  • Silent/General swap
  • Bluetooth on/off
  • WiFi on/off
If you’d like to try this app, it is £1.50 (GBP) or equivalent at Ovi Store.
Move from up to down in the top of display to show panel with quick settings. The program will allow you: change the brightness of the display; enable / disable Bluetooth; change the profile; start the wizard WLAN; enable power-saving mode; You can setup panel display for preferred programs. Don’t forget enable light sensor before uninstallation
