Settings -> General -> Bluetooth -> On/Off
Update 4/27 It appears like Apple did not like the app after all. As of 4/27/12, the app appears to have been pulled from the iTunes Store. I spoke with the developer when the app launched and he confidently noted that he spoke with the Apple reviewers and abided with their requests – no attempts to forcibly push the app through had been made.
I’m wondering if Apple decided after the fact, (like what Apple did to Tether app) that they didn’t like the app and pulled it. I’ll see if I could provide you guys with an update from the developer soon.
I’m sure we’ve all been there. “Now where do I go to turn my Bluetooth on?”
Toggling your Bluetooth on and off on the iPhone is a hassle. While Android users get to toggle their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with a single tap from their notification screen, iPhone users need to remember to go into settings and after several more taps to get into the Bluetooth settings.
Users who jailbreak their iPhones have the luxury of SBSettings that allow users to toggle various functions of the phone with a single tap, but many folks obviously prefer not to jailbreak their phones.
Introducing the Bluetooth OnOff app
No longer will you have to go through the grueling task of scavenging through your Settings on your iPhone to toggle your Bluetooth.
Bluetooth OnOff is a $0.99 app for the iOS (iPhone and iPad optimized) that allows you to toggle your Bluetooth on or off just by launching the app.
It would have been nice if Apple had already implemented the ease of toggling essential functions such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into the Notification Center – it really is a no-brainer – but hey, at least now we have an app.
The app isn’t free but I personally think $0.99 isn’t too much for the hassle we have to go through on a daily basis. What do you think? Is the app worth it? We’d love to hear from you. Please sound your opinions in comments.
