    Default New Concept Adds a Toggle Drop Down Button to the Status Bar


    Toggles. iOS simply needs toggles. They’re an easy way to accomplish tasks without having to dig through the Settings application the way that Apple designed iOS to make the user do.

    This new iOS 7 concept adds a new icon to the Status Bar that resembles the Notification Center button in OS X Mountain Lion, which, when tapped, drops down a gray toggle window. The toggle window includes controls for display brightness, music, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, battery information, orientation lock, alarm, and more.



    For a mobile-friendly video link that works with our app, tap on the video link below:

    Video Link

    Not only can users tap on the individual cells to perform tasks, but by swiping left or right on the individual cells, the user can access even more advanced controls, such as additional music controls when swiping on the Music toggle cell, or additional brightness controls when swiping on the brightness toggle cell.

    The user can hide the gray toggle window by simply tapping on the OS X Mountain Lion-like button in the Status Bar a second time. Notably, the toggle interface can be accessed from anywhere, whether you're on the lock screen, home screen, or within an application where the Status Bar is visible.

    With integrated customization features, the user will be able to enable or disable specific toggles depending on what they use the most. There is no word yet on whether or not this concept will be made into a jailbreak tweak to be hosted on Cydia. Is this something you’d like to use?

    I'd love to see this actually be for iOS but a tweak would be cool too.

    Yeah, I hear many people talk about their iPhone getting stolen but a lot don't have FindmyiPhone set up! That should be the first thing you do when you get it. I don't know why the app doesn't come pre-installed on iOS anyways.

    So when app is installed it will it stay on , because I have to sign in every time , & yes I think it should be pre installed
    Because they cant delete it

    Yeah, it requires you to sign in every time just in case your phone is stolen so that the thief can't get into the app and find any other iDevices on your account.. but you can still remotely alarm, lock, locate, and wipe the phone from any web browser.

    Guys, why would you want the app on the device? So the thief can see where all your devices are? It doesn't come pre-installed for this reason. When you setup your phone for the first time, it asks you if you want to turn on find my iPhone. Say yes and you are done. If you misplace your phone or it gets stolen, find a nearest computer or any other idevice, download the app, sign in using ID, bam! You just found the thief.

    In summary, you do not need the app on the lost phone to be able to track it.

    That's true but as I said, the thief can't track your other devices unless he knows your password because each time you open the app you have to enter your pass. And if he did then he could just install the app himself and do that.

    That's why I Thanked your post buddy.

    Regardless, the app is not pre installed because you don't need the app to be able to turn the tracking service on.

    Yeah, good point.. I was thinking if the app was deleted it should still work. So that would mean you don't need it to begin with which is good!

    This isn't some new concept. They are just implementing an idea that people have been using on jailbroken devices for years now. With that said, I think it's a step in the right direction for iOS 7. Hopefully they add some more features like this with iOS 7.

    Wow people are really getting desperate to get a JB apparently. People seem to have lost all morality, it's just about what can I get, how can I get it, and what's the fastest way

    So SBsettings may finally be Applefied, it's about time
