Android application review: Quick Settings

I've devoted virtually an entire screen on my mobile desktop to core and third party widgets that allow me to quickly adjust phone settings, such as turning on wifi or turning off GPS. With this app though, I needn't have bothered. Quick Settings presents itself as a permanent ('Ongoing') selection in your Android drop-down notifications, and you can set it up to appear as a pop-up on top of whatever else you might be doing.

Entities: Android, Quick Settings

Drupal Dries at Doggetts

Last week I went along to my first London Drupal pub meet (despite using Drupal well over a year now), which happened to take place at a pub on the Thames (Doggetts) that I've been to lots over the years (especially when working at IPC Media whose HQ used to be just up the road), and I think it was probably the biggest one so far, thanks to the announced guest of Dries Buytaert<
