Basically, you install it, and you instantly receive a tiny button to the side of your screen. With it, the world is yours! For starters, you get five shortcuts shaped in a cross pattern - Lock, Favor, Phone Boost, Setting, and Home. These are self-explanatory, with the exception of Phone Boost - this one instantly frees up RAM memory. You can add four more alongside those five shortcuts, or go to the next page of buttons where you get toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Location, Volume, Airplane Mode, Flashlight, and Screen Rotation.
Moreover, in the app's Settings menu, you can choose between Smooth, Normal, and Quick animation speed, as well as adjust the Size and Alpha sliders. There's background color adjustment as well, if you'd like to add some charming hues to the shortcuts menu. You can also change the app icon, which is a welcome, if inessential trick.
And that's about it - get Assistive Touch from the link below and give it a spin. The app is free and has no advertisements outside the main configuration interface.
