IconToggles adds useful shortcuts to your Home screen

By , Aug 25, 2012

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.

What do you think of IconToggles?

    Another one? There’s already about 5 tweaks that do this already, plus that web clip trick.

    Did you ever heard of Anicon? It’s icons are designed by no one else when Surenix him self! Also it does the same functionality and is in the Cydia store for a long time now. Please take a look at it.

    Jeff, since you are using NCSettings, do you have any problem with this tweak such as when I turn ON my Location Service at Setting.app it is just fine but when I turn ON my Location Services through SBSettings or NCSettings in Setting.app it is still show OFF but it actually already ON. In other word, I can OFF/ON the Location Services using SBSetting or NCSettings, the only thing is, in Setting.app it shows OFF when turn ON and remain ON when turn OFF.

    Rip-Off of my UsefulIcons Tweak…

  • Dan

    Another useless tweak in the cydia store (and an imitation of Usefullcons at that). Hard to imagine anybody paying for that when you have other options such as Deck/sbsettings etc

    I have intelliscreen x installed on my iPhone and even though this sounds great, I think it’s convient for myself to have these toggles on my NC center, but for those who would like this, it works the same. I have a question and help would be nice… Does anyone know of toggles that could reboot or power down the iPhone from intelliscreen quick settings? Thanks for your help!
