So a really quick one today, to continue our top 10 reasons why Android is great (Especially on rugged Android Handhelds)!, we’re looking at toggle buttons!
OK, OK, so toggle buttons are nothing new and if we’re being totally honest they were made beautiful first by IOS and the iPhone and are only available from build 16 of Android onwards (4.1), but they interestingly they really do make an application on a mobile phone far easier to work with.
The toggle button is basically an ON/OFF or True/False control but instead of being in an option style, which can be fiddly and is more stylus oriented, you just have 1 toggle button to press. They’re used everywhere in mobile applications, they’re very mobile and they’re cool!
