Android Widget Review: CurveFish OnOff

May - 21 2016 | By


Widgets: Bluetooth OnOff, GPS OnOff, WiFi OnOff, LockPattern OnOff, AutoRotate OnOff, Brightness Level
Publisher: CurveFish.

The CurveFish OnOff widgets were the first widgets I downloaded when I got my new Motorola DROID. I needed to have complete control over my connections to save on battery life, and found a few little fun widgets along the way. And to have found a publisher that has released multiple widgets of the same theme excite the OCD inside me.

Bluetooth OnOff, WiFi OnOff

The Bluetooth OnOff and WiFi OnOff are just that, great widgets for controlling the state of your Bluetooth and WiFi connections. Straight forward and usable.
Bluetooth OnOff Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
WiFi OnOff Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars


The GPS OnOff widget is very much like the Bluetooth OnOff and WiFi OnOff widgets, with the exception that it must be linked to another service. I originally linked it to the Bluetooth service, but the GPS froze and never turned on. I linked it to the WiFi, and seems to work, but I hate losing my WiFi connection just to turn my GPS on or off.
GPS OnOff Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

LockPattern OnOff
LockPattern OnOff is nice for configuring whether, once your phone locks, it unlocks using the slider or lock pattern. I use it to switch between being home, and away from home, as I dont need anyone having that easy of access to all of my data.
LockPattern OnOff Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
AutoRotate OnOff
I honestly dont enjoy my phone rotating from landscape to portrait without me explicitly telling it to. This is where AutoRotate OnOff comes into play. If your keyboard is retracted, your phones display is set to portrait. If your keyboard is extracted, your phones display is set to portrait. And putting your DROID in the car dock in portrait mode overrides the widget, which is perfect.

AutoRotate OnOff Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Brightness Level
While not specifically an OnOff widget, it works with with the battery saving features of the OnOff widgets by allowing you to EASILY change the screen brightness, saving you battery when you dont need the screen on, or dont need it bright.
Brightness Level Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Final Thoughts
Overall, very satisfied with these widgets. So much so that I have a desktop devoted to geek tweaks, and they occupy the first six positions.
Overall Rating: 4.25 out of 5 stars.
