As long as Apple keeps the system toggles buried in the Settings app in iOS, jailbreak developers will keep coming up with new shortcuts for users to access them.
The latest tweak to fall into this category is IconToggles. Similar to Usefullcons, the utility adds icons to your Spring board that act as shortcuts for Settings toggles…
IconToggles features 16 icons, which each have their own custom action. As you’d expect, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggles are covered, as are Airplane mode and respring. But there are a few other non-conventional ones as well, such as fake banners and compose SMS.
The icons are well-designed, and look especially good on lighter backgrounds. And I really like the convenience of having literal one-touch access to things like mute and reboot. That being said, I did run into a few problems during my testing this week.
First, there’s no way to delete icons that you’re not using (unless I’m missing something). It’s either all 16, or none of them. And second, my iPhone has been kicked into Safe Mode after tapping a toggle on several occasions. Conflict or not, that shouldn’t happen.
In the end, while I like the tweak, it hasn’t given me any reason to stop using NCSettings. But if you’re interested, you can find IconToggles in the BigBoss repo, in Cydia, for $1.99.
