  • [Review] NCSettings - A Notification Center Toggle Pane


    In the event that youíre tired of rummaging through your Settings application to find useful system settings and toggles, jailbreaking comes to the rescue, allowing us to find all of these useful features almost anywhere on our iDevices. One of the more recent of such tools is NCSettings by iOS developer JamieD360, which adds some useful toggles and settings right to iOS 5ís Notification Center in a simple widget form.



    Above are the two places you will find preferences for NCSettings. The screenshot on the left shows you the preferences pane that appears in the Settings application after installing NCSettings form Cydia, allowing you to enabled and disable the toggles you will use the most or not as much. The screenshot on the right shows you the Notifications section of the Settings application where you can drag NCSettings in and out of Notification Center to enable or disable the widget on demand.

    If you were wondering why there are more toggles in the Settings application than there are in the entire screenshot above, thatís because when you have the widget open, you have to scroll side to side to view more widgets. There is an inertial bounce when you scroll side to side. When you tap on a toggle, a nicely animated notification from within the widget notifies you when youíve tapped on a toggle to enable to disable something. Tapping on either the brightness or volume toggles brings up a slider directly within the widget itself where you can adjust each of those settings to your liking. The design quality of the widget is very well done and the widget itself doesn't take up that much space.

    NCSettings isnít an SBSettings replacement as SBSettings has many more toggles than just system settings. NCSettings is good for the iOS power-user that is always enabling and disabling things to either test something out or to be more efficient on battery life throughout the day. It doesnít cause any slowness with loading Notification Center, which is good news for everyone interested in trying it. NCSettings will play nicely with other third party widgets as well as tweaks like Flowtation and IntelliScreenX. It's free in Cydia today.

      Neat tweak, but I'll stick with IntelliScreenX for now.

      Is there a setting to enable this on the lock screen? Or is there a separate tweak to enable Notification Center on the lock screen? If so, I'd probably use this. I loved Intelliscreen X but it absolutely destroyed my battery.

      This works, is simple, and takes up less room on my NC than did SBSettings. Is it more useful? I can swipe for SBSettings or I can pull down for NC. Seems a wash. Free, though. I'm leaving it on my NC screen unless I notice battery drain.

      Awesome widget! Let's see if it affects battery life like sbsettings did. Also, if it added VPN toggle, then it'd be perfect!

      The only missing is 3G toggle. Gonna stick with SBSetting until it becomes available.

      I don't get it, what's the point of this tweak - it requires full installation of SBSettings which has notification center toggles anyway.?. :/

      edit: Nevermind the problem was caused on my end because I had only sbsettingstoggles installed.

      Issue now fixed, it was my source.

      Love the tweak. Any plans for kill background and free ram? Thats the only thing keeping me from getting rid of UI
