    Exactly, I use this app and GPS isnt an option I have selected to use.

    I use wifi, bluetooth, airplane, vibe/silent, flashlight, always on, brightness.

    Eliminated me having to use the Beautiful widgets silent/vibe widgets or the audio manager widget.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    I love this app. Would like to see two more options added: 1) A USB Switcher to mount/unmount to a PC. 2)A switch that has the same functionality as "Screen Mode Widget."

    That would make this the most complete widget app available!

    This may be a dumb question, but if you're signed into Google and allow it to use your location for search results, would it use GPS/battery anytime you just perform a search?

    I think you can turn that off in the browser. But yes it's annoying, but I don't go to the Google Homepage that much on my browser. I just flat out use the search bar so I skip the GPS crap.

    Third party apps can not programmatically enable GPS. Imagine a poorly coded app that continually drained your battery using GPS.
    I think you might be mistaken. Plenty of apps like Yelp, Speedtest, etc will use the GPS to help get a better location. They can use the GPS if you allow it to in the master settings. GPS is an ON/OFF in SwitchPro, what are you guys talking about? >< It doesn't take you to a settings page.

    they nerfed the flashlight, before update it used the built in LED but now it just lights the touch screen up. Lame.

    If you go into the settings (or open the app) you can change the flashlight behavior.

    flashlight works again, but I still get the "cannot rive" screen. I posted to the dev's website about this. hopefully he takes my suggestion for a fix.
