Android had a notification bar for a long time before iOS implemented it. However, you cant deny the fact that the iOS 5 Notification Center is much better, more customizable and smoother than Android's, thanks to the jailbreaking community. There are tons of tweaks that can add some really cool widgets and functionality to the iOS NC. To get something similar on Android, you can try out Notification Toggle.

Notification Toggle is a free Android app that lets you add more system toggles than what comes stock and also adds any of your favorite apps to the notification bar. This way you can access any app by with just a pull down of the notification bar. Below is a list of all the features that this app provides.

Heres the full list of toggles and shortcuts that this app provides:

  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • Sound / Vibration, Sound / Silent, Sound menu
  • Brightness mode / menu / 4 predefined stages
  • Screen timeout dialog
  • Wake lock
  • Rotation
  • Flight mode
  • Mobile data
  • Flashlight (might require TeslaLED)
  • Sync
  • WiFi- & USB-Tethering
  • Music: previous / next / pause
  • WiFi settings / advanced settings
  • Bluetooth settings
  • GPS
  • Mobile data settings
  • Data usage
  • Battery
  • Camera
  • Next Wallpaper (requires WallpaperChanger)
  • Lockscreen (requires DelayedLock)
  • Favorite apps & shortcuts

Best thing about the app is that its totally free and works with a wide range of Android devices running on any version above 2.1. There are other apps out there that have similar features, but this is one of the best and has the most number of settings/toggles/shortcuts etc. You can now quickly access Facebook, Twitter, Camera, Messaging and more from the notification bar.
