Can anyone recognize this app (toggles WiFi, GPS, Sync, BT, etc.) in the notification bar?

I am used to from cyanogen mod to be able to toggle on/off wi-fi, gps, data, plane mode etc Also I was able to configure what is going to be available to toggle.

Now in HTC Sense version 4.0 that runs on Android 4.0.3 I cannot find anything like that.

Do I have to install (and probably pay) for a widget or I missed this a must feature in the Sense?

Could you recommend a widget that would allow me to do so?

There are a lot of toggle switches available. Some even come pre-installed -- just check it out:

  1. go to your homescreen
  2. long-press on an empty space
  3. select to add a widget
  4. scroll through the list of available widgets
  5. select the one you want to use

Usually, there are a lot of separate widgets to toggle either Wifi, GPS, ... -- but also a "power-widget" (or "energy-widget") should be available, which is a combination of several widgets.

If you are still not satisfied with what you find there, the playstore is full of alternatives:

  • Elixir 2 with its Elixir 2 - Widgets being the most famous and high-rated1, and can even be integrated into the notification area
  • Power Toggles being another alternative2 -- also can be integrated with the notification area

Just to give you two examples -- as said, the playstore has many more. Below you find a screenshot from Elixir1 and Power Toggles2, to give you an idea of what they can do.
