    I found this on another forum and wanted to share. I searched here and couldn't find if it's already been posted. I've found these toggles to be very useful since we don't have an untethered jailbreak.

    "This is freaking sweet and works very well. I am constantly turning my bluetooth on and off and I also adjust the brightness pretty often. I hate how Apple buries those so deep, why not have some toggles in the pull down menu (Notifications)?

    Sorry if it's a repost, did a search and didn't find anything."

    Been looking for something like this, not having to jailbreak. I now have a new folder on my homescreen with a lot of links. Thanks!

    This "app" seems to open Safari, albeit briefly, every time you use one of the home screen shortcuts...

    This seems that it would use Data each time you use a shortcut.

    I noticed this when I opened Safari and I had like 4 tabs opened, one for each shortcut I'd just used (bluetooth, iCloud, etc...).

    I noticed this too...but only on some of them. Some you never see safari. I have no worries about data...I'm on Sprint

    It does open Safari. Hopefully, it won't be long until a jailbreak, but I was glad to find this option for now.

    I turned off my cell data and the shortcuts still worked. so not sure why it opens Safari each time...

    Does the $.0.99 app do this as well?

    It uses Safari to open the link. The link actually opens the select setting and not a webpage so no data is actually used. The one big thing that has annoyed me is that the link seems to be perpetually loading on safari so that if you were using your Battery Usage counter, it'll count the entire time the page isn't closed as usage.

    All Safari is doing is calling the prefs pane of the settings that are setup. no data is being sent. Whats up sj....? You too rd....

    If open the link from the original post on this thread in Safari, it'll take you to the page and the links should work. When I opened it with the QR Reader, the links for downloading and installing wouldn't work even though it appeared to open in Safari. I loaded the program and to tell you the truth I'd rather stay with just using the normal settings format. Unless these shortcuts allow you to change things you wouldn't otherwise would be able to change I'll just do without. I really don't need to change my settings often enough to need 40 more widgets on my phone. Just a personal preference....

    i dont know if its just a coincidence or not...but my batt went down 6% just playing with it...''

    also if you notice when you delete the icons that this creates...it asks are you sure you want to delete the "bookmark"

    however when you ask to delete an icon created by icon project...it asks if you want to delete the icon...don't knwo if this has anything to do with the sudden battery drop...

    ofcourse...everytime u open an icon it opens a safari page. therefore its using data i guess. open 10 icons. then go to your safari and look at how many pages are left open. i stopped using it and use iconproject instead.

    Yup.. so you'll have to go into Safari and close those tabs out- each time you use a shortcut toggle. I'd gladly pay to have this app work w/o involving a webpage link...
