Here's an innovative idea; a lot of apps on Android phones like tocnale use of this thing called a widget. What it does is increase accessibility and functionality without having to wade through menus.
It really does make an app much more effective if.it can be controlled through the home screen instead of having to open the app every time you want to use it.
Radical idea, but might be worth a thought.
