New little ‘app’ that I made with a few minutes spare this evening: Access the bluetooth pane of Settings.app on your iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad running iOS5 with two clicks directly from the home screen without having to traverse the unwieldy Settings.app.
- Open Safari and navigate here.
- Select the icon in the bottom toolbar three from the left – the box with an arrow.
- Select Add to Home Screen.
- Click Add at the top right.
Now all you have to do to open Bluetooth is open the app on your home screen and click the image in the center of the screen. Easy!
On the technical side of things I tried to get this working so when you select it on the homescreen it opens it directly without any user interaction (giving one-press access to Bluetooth). Seemingly this isn’t possible. I may be wrong – anyone with any ideas on this let me know!
