Spotlight: Assistive Touch puts a convenient virtual shortcut button on your Android screen
Assistive Touch apps aren't a new concept in the Android app kingdom, but those who'd like an extra virtual button for shortcuts and toggles on their device have it great, because there's a huge selection of apps with this purpose. Assistive Touch (Touch Easy) is one of those. It may have an awkward name, but it completes the task given, and is supremely simple to use.
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.
