NCSettings for iPhone and iPad adds a row of system toggles to Notification Center for commonly used settings such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, brightness, and airplane mode. It's very similar to the system toggles you'd find in SBSettings but integrated in a way that's much more consistent with the default look of iOS.
When you first install NCSettings to your iPhone or iPad you'll have to hop into Settings and enable it under Notifications. Move it up and down to wherever you'd like it to appear in Notification Center. I prefer it all the way at the top above the weather widget but you can place it where you'd like. Once you've done that, just pull down your Notification Center shade and you'll notice a new row of icons. These are system toggles just like many are already used to having in SBSettings.
You can edit and remove toggles you don't want to use by adding, moving, and reordering them under Settings. You can also change things like the icon spacing and how volume and vibrate toggles function. NCSettings currently has options for brightness, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, flashlight, airplane mode, 3G, cellular data, private browsing, location services, auto-lock, power, silent, vibrate, lock rotation, and volume.
The thing I really like about NCSettings opposed to SBSettings is that it blends really nicely into iOS and doesn't look like it's out of place. It isn't as full featured as SBSettings and won't give you options like changing the carrier banner or managing memory but if you don't require those features and just want access to system toggles, NCSettings is a great choice.
- Blends in with Notification Center perfectly for a cleaner look and feel
- Supports a good amount of toggles stock
- Allows you to rearrange your toggles in whatever order you'd like
- Not as powerful as SBSettings
- Doesn't have themes and additional toggles
NCSettings natively supports almost every system toggle you'd want or need and it's super easy to configure. Many jailbreak apps have confusing Settings panels and are overloaded with options. That's not the case here and it's about as Apple like as you're going to get.
If all you want is system toggles and don't need all the additional options SBSettings provides, NCSettings is a great choice. Many users may actually prefer it.

There was a problem. Please refresh the page and try again.
That said, I'd like to be able to manage memory. And THAT said, it's less of an issue on the new iPad than on my original iPad.
I think I still like SBSetting better, I prefer the toggles I have access to in SBSetting compared to NCsettings but I know a lot of other people prefer NCsettings.
Thanks to the developer and thanks to iMore for the head's up.
i agree this functionality should be in vanilla ios, but it probably never will be for whatever assanine reason.
things that take a button tap in android and BBos take like 4screens of taps on ios its absolutely absurd at this point.
Thank you to the dev for making it & being free.
