    Default PowerCenter Pro: All-In-One Widget: Pre-Sale Event


    Widget development is still in the making as iOS 5 inches closer to release. One, called PowerCenter Pro, by Aaron Wright (@WrightsCS), includes all the components anyone would need to manage their iDevice quickly from the Notification Center. Not only is management a key component of this application, but the ability to view different types of important information directly from the Notification Center comes in handy quite often.

    Similar to SBSettings and UISettings (UISettings is no longer available - taken down by developer due to leaving the community for a short period), PowerCenterPro incorporates toggles for the following:

    • Lock (Device Lock)
    • Respring
    • Safe Mode
    • Turn Off (Shutdown)
    • Reboot
    • Airplane Mode
    • Data
    • Bluetooth
    • Location
    • Wifi
    • Volume
    • Brightness
    • Share (Twitter/Facebook)
    • Settings
    (and then a Donate button if you wish to support the developer)




    The first page includes a nifty screen that shows you information such as:

    • Free RAM
    • WiFi IP
    • Firmware
    • Device


    This information is useful for an assortment of reasons (IP for SSH, Free RAM for performance purposes, etc.).



    On the second page, the page shows what percentage your battery is at (similar to Aaron's standalone application - BatteryCenter).

    The rest of the pages house the various toggles as mentioned above. One cool feature that I love in the incorporation of these buttons is what I call a safeguard. Since you swipe the pages with your fingers to see each new screen, it can be very easy to accidentally tap a button. However, when you tap an icon with PowerCenter Pro, it brings up a confirmation window that gives you an option to perform the function, or cancel out. After toying with this widget for a while, that safeguard has been a lifesaver a few times.



    PowerCenter Pro also puts an icon on your SpringBoard for further customization. There are a few toggles for displaying different parts of PowerCenter Pro, but what caught my eye was the Theme section. Development for PowerCenter Pro has been opened up to themers, designers, and the like so that the look and feel of PowerCenter Pro can fit your taste. There will be a Featured Themes section for when well-designed themes are released so that people can view what are the most popular. And of course, when development picks up, there will be themes directly on Cydia to buy / download for PowerCenter Pro.

    PowerCenter Pro has not been released to Cydia yet but should be soon. When it hits Cydia, it will be available for $2.49. Due to its incorporation of the Notification Center, PowerCenter Pro is only available on iOS 5 firmwares.

    Name: PowerCenter Pro
    Author: Aaron C. Wright
    Price: $2.49

    The developer has opened up a pre-sale event for PowerCenter Pro for those who want the application early and at a cheaper price. The pre-sale cost is $1 so you will save $1.49 on the full retail price when released. You will have access to links before release to download your copy of PowerCenter Pro. All the information about this can be found directly on his website:
    If you want to give this application a test, a free version of PowerCenter Pro (PowerCenter) can be downloaded on the developer's repository. PowerCenter lacks some core features that PowerCenter Pro offers but is a good way to test the waters so to speak:
    To keep up to date with the developer and his work on PowerCenter Pro, follow Aaron on Twitter. Also, view his website for more information about his other products and developments.

    Because SBSettings requires Activator, it does not work on iOS 5. Activator and SBSettings I'm sure will be updated for the GM of iOS 5, however, the swipe function of Activator will get in the way of the Notification Center activation.

    At the moment, Activator isn't compatible with iOS 5, which cripple's SBSettings.

    Great question; let me clarify this.

    That would be a good suggestion to the developer. I'll let him know (or you can contact him also).

    I just spoke with Aaron; he is removing the Twitter requirement. Have at it!

    This is awesome!! The one thing missing from SBSettings is the ability to free up memory. Do you happen to know if this might be something he was thinking of adding by the release?

    I went ahead and preordered it! Also downloaded the free version but it's not showing up. It says to respring after install but since I don't have UISettings I'm not sure how to respring. I tried rebooting my phone and it still doesn't show. Anyone know why this might be? I'm on iOS beta 2.

    I have no idea if that is an incorporation he will add soon (Free up memory):

    In regards to making it show up; you may need to enable it in Settings.app.
    • Go to Settings.app
    • Tap Notifications
    • Scroll down until you find PowerCenter
    • Tap into it and Enable

    Also; did you remember to reboot tethered after restarting your device?

    I wonder that too. Quite honestly, I would prefer the 4x4 grid of toggles, to the single row this widget has.

    Nice little sale, only 1.34(plus tax). I'd say it's a win win situation.

    UISettings is better! I wish people would stop making different ways to do what sbsettings does. I wish for sbsettings to be only compatible for ios4 and lower and then UISettings for ios5. Not this tweak.

    UISettings is no longer available for download as qwertyoruiop removed it.

    Information of this nature hasn't been released (I am not at liberty to discuss).
