Icon Settings and the Icon Project app both offer easy to use solutions for adding toggle settings icons to the iOS home screen. One is free, one is not. One is simple, and the other more feature heavy. Both are wonderful, but will not replace SBSettings once the iOS 5 Jailbreak is available.
Icon Settings is completely web-based, and completely free. Users simply need to follow this link and choose from the following list of settings toggle shortcuts:
After clicking on the shortcut the user is taken to the appropriate settings menu in iOS. All the user has to do now is go back to Safari and select “Add to Home Screen” and a URL based settings toggle button is added to the user’s home screen. These quick toggle buttons allow users to open up settings menus with one click forgoing the usually multi-menu navigation necessary to reach Safari, BlueTooth, network and other settings menus.
Icon Project available in the App Store does include more features than Icon Settings, like the ability to customize the text, color, picture and overall look of the icon. Users can also create multiple function icons which allow for more than one action to be launched with a single press. User's can also send custom icons to other by email. Overall it offers more features than Icon Settings, but it also is $.99 and must be downloaded from the App Store.
Bottom line, both options offer the ability to create icons that allow users to access setting's menus in one touch from their home screen, but you must decide if $.99 is worth the added functionality of Icon Project.
Thank our South African friends over at iPhoneza for this simple little tweak, and oddly enough there is no need to jailbreak.
