Apple's going to sue Samsung because there is a control center on some Samsung devices. ;)

But accessing it from the home button seems cumbersome .

Nice app idea, but feels redundant to me in use.

I've been using an all called sidebar launcher. It's similar except that you do it from the side of your phone

All in all a disappointing article. I know there are not too many options available regarding good smart apps for getting iOS like Control Center on Android but then too I was expecting more app options than you have provided here. Plus the description is too long which I feel also not needed for a non-technical reader whom you found often visiting websites than the technical person.
