Toggle Settings from Your Homescreen Without a Jailbreak

                                     Drilling through a series of menus and options just to change a single setting on iOS can waste valuable seconds that can be better spent playing Infinity Blade, so UI designer Jeff Broderick has created a webapp appropriately called “Settings” that allows you to create homescreen shortcuts for commonly used toggles. Available at his website, Settings has shortcuts for enabling WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, and much more. It ‘cheats’ by using configuration profiles to redirect from mobile Safari to the requested preference pane, allowing it to work without a jailbreak. The ability to quickly toggle settings (a la SBSettings) is one of the big draws of jailbreaking your device, but Settings works just as well without the hassle.
