I don't use the toggles..use sbsettings too lol still like the swipe down to close and previews.

Yeah, I wish there was a way to turn off the Auxo toggles. NC Settings is much better and easier to get to.

From a UI standpoint, toggles in the switcher makes much more sense to me... which is why I love Auxo. The NC is meant for notifications and info, not an app launcher or settings toggles.
All my push info is up top and all apps/settings are on the bottom.

I liked this app but as soon as I installed it I lost the ability to use my Bluetooth. Ended up having to restore my phone

+1 My thoughts exactly... which is why I transitioned from SBSettings that served me well for so long, to Auxo.

Hmm... perhaps a conflict with another tweak you've installed?

If they add fast notes (NOT tap to note or whatever) the same that's in sbsettings then I'd consider switching to just Auxo

If what we are all after is improving the usability with some eye candy thrown in, I am not sure i understand why we combined the NC/SBS type settings in the app switcher. The app switcher obviously if for switching to apps quickly. To do this, ideally you show as many recent apps at one time - with one gesture/click. Similarly, the whole reason for SBS/NC settings is to more quickly access fav settings. This fits best in the NC (or even as a widget if you like that) or some other hidden panel accessible with one gesture/click. Minimal space requirements. That way, with one gesture for AS and one gesture for NC, you have the most optimized access to both. I thought Auxo was great but why am I going to swipe three times to get to settings when I can access them right from the NC/other.

I know this is personal preference this is just what makes the most sense to me.

As an FYI, I use the Activator option to bring up the toggles first under Auxo, as opposed to the app switcher. Basically its like SBSettings for the bottom of the screen. I prefer that, since it closer for my thumb to change toggles. And all in one gesture. ;-)

Sure. But then what do you do about app switcher? Just swipe twice?

Correct. In other words, if you want the app switcher to come up first, use the default settings in Auxo, and if you prefer the toggles to come up first, use the Activator option in Auxo. :-)
