Flick Widgets brings you the power of Android at the flick of your wrist!

How it works:
Simply flick your device left, right, front, or back to reveal useful widgets or perform handy functions. Don’t stop what you are doing to dig through phone settings or other apps. Just flick and the widget slides out with minimal disruption. Watch the youtube video for a demonstration of how it works.

Widgets & Functions:
★ Launcher Widget
★ Volumes Widget (Free)
★ People Widget (Free)
★ Brightness Widget (Free)
★ Open an app
★ Answer an incoming call [requires ROOT]
★ Expand notification shade
★ Simulate pressing back, home, recent apps, and menu keys [requires ROOT]
★ Play/pause music, or play next/previous song [requires ROOT]

Upgrade to the Pro version within the app for access to all widgets and features. Note that some features require you to have root access on your phone.

The Launcher widget is the most powerful feature. Flick out the Launcher widget panel to interact directly with ANY widget on your phone including settings toggles, Facebook, Twitter, weather, news, music, to do lists, or absolutely anything else from the Google Play store! You can also launch apps and shortcuts. Its like having an extra home screen instantly available without having to first exit your app.

For root users, you can flick to answer an incoming call. This is especially handy if you are wearing gloves, so you do not need to remove them to answer a call.

The volumes widget allows you to easily change your different volume streams.

The people widget will show a group of your contacts with four different ways to interact with those contacts:
– Direct Dial
– Direct Message
– Show Contact Badge
– Show Full Contact Details

Speed dial from your phone has never been so easy! Don’t dig through the phone app or the people app to make a phone call… just flick and click!

The brightness widget allows you to easily adjust your screen brightness. Toggle auto brightness or set the brightness level yourself.

Tip: If you are using direct dial in the people widget, mark the default phone number directly in the contacts app – otherwise, the app will default to the mobile number if it is available.

    WOW! Thank you very much!
    It works PERFECTLY with my Kindle Fire HD
    I searched all day for a direct download of this apk file for the D-Link SharePort Mobile app to load into my Kindle Fire HD 7″. I’m using it with SharePort function of my new D-Link SharePort Go Mobile Companion Router with Rechargeable Battery ( DIR-506L ). This app is NOT available from Amazon because this app and device combo enables Kindle users to infinitely expand their local storage, Amazon hates that because they’re focused on SELLING you stuff and they’re making it very hard for us to enjoy the content we already own.  I have over 600 DVDs backed up on a storage drive and now I can take any/all of them with me, where ever I go. Thanks again!!!

  • Thanks for creating such a cool post that is admittedly o.k. written are referring plenty of friends concerning this.
