Bring SBSettings Toggles to iPhone’s Homescreen Without Jailbreaking [App Advice]


For about a month now, the world has been treated to Apple‘s latest and greatest smartphone, the iPhone 4S. But if you have been following the jailbreak scene, you’ll know that there is no jailbreak solution yet for the new iPhone. Although based on the iPhone Dev Team’s recent demonstration, they were able to jailbreak the iPhone 4S although it was stated that it is still a work in progress. Jailbreaking opens your device to awesome tweaks and apps such as SBSettings. Well for jailbreak users who have bought an iPhone 4S, here’s an app that will bring SBSettings-esque functionality to your new iPhone. Yes, no jailbreak required.

You heard it right. This requires no jailbreaking because this app is available from the iTunes App Store. The app in question is called Icon Project by author Jae Hun Jeong. At the surface, Icon Project is an app that lets you create original icons in order to personalize your Home screen. But you can actually assign specific URL links to the custom icons you have created such as the call function, SMS/MMS, Facetime, Skype and so on. But how does this app have anything to do with the ever popular SBSettings tweak?

As it turns out, you can also assign shortcuts to your custom icons that links to certain toggles. So just like with SBSettings, simply assign URLs for frequently accessed Settings toggles such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Brightness, Airplane Mode and so on. Now this isn’t exactly a full-on replacement for SBSettings because the functionality of this app is quite limited. Icon Project provides the shortcut directly to a specific Settings toggle rather than being able to configure the toggles on the fly like with SBSettings. But still, it’s a nice replacement for those who are looking to access their most frequently accessed toggles more quickly. And you can have it for only $0.99.

Here are the complete list of Shortcuts:
