The initial screen that is brought up contains tabs for Toggles (1-3) and Profiles.  Each Toggle tab can have up to 8 settings to control.  Again, these are customizable so that you can have the settings you want to control the most often on the first tab.  Settings you never change don’t even have to be included on any of the tabs.  List of settings that can be added to your toggle tabs:
·         Airplane
·         Mobile Data
·         Auto sync
·         Bluetooth
·         Fast bright
·         GPS
·         Lock Screen
·         Orientation

·         Phone ringtone
·         Ringer mode

The second great part of this app is the customizable profiles that you can create.  Simplified, a profile is a saved set of settings that you want to apply repeatedly.  For example, you can have a Low Battery profile that has settings set to conserve the amount of battery life that you have remaining i.e. turn off GPS, lower screen brightness, etc.  This is a great part of the app that can really come in handy for quick settings adjustments.  Currently I have Home, Location, Low Battery, and Work profiles.
The third important part of this app is the customizable rules that you can setup.  A rule is basically a criteria that when met, will lead to the application of a particular profile.  For example, you can add a rule that when the Battery is less than some %, the Low Battery profile is applied.  Or another example would be a rule based on the time, so that at 8:00AM the Work profile is applied.  Your work profile might include setting your phone to silent, turning off GPS, etc.  Rules can be applied to various different parameters like time, location, battery life, charger is plugged in, etc.
Overall, Toggle Settings is one of those must have Android apps to quickly and efficiently change the settings of your Android phone.  Similarly, it is a great app for conserving battery life in that you can control how settings that are battery intensive are used.  Definitely worth the download.
