    I like the iOS control center, in terms of looks, more than the minimalistic approach the Google takes with its toggles, and if you feel the same and have either an Android device or a Mac, then you can put them on both.

    Control Center for Android is a very close replica to the iOS control center, whereas the Mac version (a 3rd party app called Control+) is more just a drop down menu from the status bar deal, like say Plex, bluetooth, etc... It isn't very Apple like in it's look and style either, but it is functional.

    The Android app is free, has a 4.3 rating and is located here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=inc.lonetooth.controlcenter
    I have this on my Nexus 4 and with a quick thumb swipe from the bottom right side of the screen, it pops right up. Works every time. Shows my battery %, battery temp, free RAM, storage space available, time, I can toggle which music player it uses, brightness controls, and of course control toggles and apps I use. Images below. Works extremely well. There are a couple other iOS7 style control center apps on the Play Store, but this works the best IMO.

    For the Mac, this app is currently 99 cents in the Mac App Store, soon to go up to $5, and it only works on OSX 10.7 and 10.8. I really don't know if this is worth the money, but here is what this can do:
    Display settings
    Adjust brightness
    Drag a picture from the Desktop to change wallpaper
    Start the Screen Saver
    Turn the screen white (Flashlight) - Great for video chatting in a dark room.
    iTunes
    View album cover
    View song and artist
    Play/Pause Next/Previous
    Adjust iTunes volume

    Ridiculous. Our keyboard buttons do most of that.

    And I can select a picture to be my desktop wallpaper by right-clicking on the image in Finder or Safari.

    No arguments from me. You never know what some people may like or find useful.

    For Android 4.2+ you can use the two-finger dropdown to adjust most of the settings. For other Android versions I use Power Toggles.
