    Here's a great app review video for you today! Our very own gear-head and phablet master @smalltowngirl13 decided to put the app "Pie Control" through its paces. This app basically enhances your UI by adding "pie-style" menu overlay that can pop up on the left or right side of your display.

    This overlay is customizable so you can create different functions for different buttons. Check out her awesome video and offer up your perspective in the comments below!

    Great review @smalltowngirl13! This is great information, and its nice that your device does not have to be rooted in order to get that function. Thanks!

    I could never get into using these kinds of apps, but a very nice video and walkthrough!

    I was happy to find an app outside of LMT - I haven't rooted my last couple of devices and it is great to see the function of some rooted apps can be replicated for stock devices.

    Good review. Looks interesting. I've been using Notification Toggle since forever. It does pretty much the same thing but from the drop down menu. I might try this just to change things up. Thanks again for bringing this app to my attention.

    Do they have a power button toggle that I am missing?

    I use Notification Toggle as well in my notification panel but I use each for different apps...Pie Control has been updated to include 3 levels of apps with long click options on each so in reality I could stop using Notification Toggle but I most likely won't ;)...
