Make Your Notifications Show up from the Left with Add-ons

Sidebar Launcher is a scroll bar on the side for your Android device. It works like the notification area, but it’s positioned on the left side and has quite a few additional functionalities to offer. Like the notification area, Sidebar Launcher would show you the current date and time, along with alarm information. Right below that, you can access other features such as airplane mode, Wi-Fi, GPS, and volume control. Besides these standard tools, you would also have quick access to your frequently used apps.
