    I'm asking because I have yet to install one on my 8X and I would like some input because it may be a great one I don't know yet.

    With my Optimus 7 I used Connectivity Shortcuts but it didn't support Bluetooth toggling. Is there any on the store now that supports it? I only use Bluetooth and WiFi toggles everyday.

    Thanks!

    I also use Connectivity Shortcuts and there is a Bluetooth icon you can pin that takes you straight to the Bluetooth page. Hope this helps.

    Toggle is another solid app

    Last time I used it the Bluetooth tile didn't show its state (on/off). Has this been worked out?

    Have you tried Connectiviry Shortcuts? If so, which one you liked the most?

    lemme check that out for ya


    The Bluetooth tile will flip an state its status in toggle but only if the tile is medium sized.

    I like toggles way of showing off/on status in the small tiles for wifi/cellular connections.

    Of course you have to back out of the app for the status to update

    Connectivity Shortcuts didn't have a notification of on or off and the smallest tiles, that is a deal breaker for me.

    Is there a connectivity app that has been (or will be) updated to include the new tap+send setting?

    Is there a connectivity app that just turns the setting on instead of you being taken to the page to turn it on yourself or is this not possible in WP?

    Edit: it's not possible yet.

    Looking for a wifi connectivity shortcut app that display the name of the wifi network which is connected to. I installed ten so far. None of them shows the id/name.

    Ive never come across one that displays the SSID, but thats a great idea and should be implemented.

    It seems that there is an app which displays the SSID: Network Dashboard.
    But only in big tile.

    Network Dashboard is a great app and it's currently FREE! Keep in mind though that the tiles will only update every 30 mins so your active SSID may not be reflected immediately.

    I was using Connectivity shortcuts, but uninstalled it as it is not displaying On/Off state.

    Now using Quick Settings | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States), On/Off state is working properly.

    I really wish this was possible. WP really needs a quick settings panel built into the OS instead of making us download these apps with limited functionality.

    OP: I'm using an app called 'Shortcuts'. I think I found it in the Nokia Collection. It's simple and gets the job done (or at least as best as it possibly can on WP) so it's good enough for me.

    I use Quick Settings. It will Do WiFi, Cellular Data, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, Location. Also has a flashlight, Battery Monitor and a close the music option.

    One thing to keep in mind is that with any of these type apps, the live tile will only show the state of the service if you use the back arrow to return to the Start screen. If you use the Home button the live tile will not immediately show the state. I also found that with any service toggle you have to wait for the service to fully turn on or off before returning to the start screen for the live tile to be accurate.

    I had Connectivity Shortcuts, Network Dashboard and others, than I realised I don't need different apps for this since Insider gives me what I need. Battery meter, Wifi, Cellular, Location, Bluetooth and Airplane mode.

    +1 for Insider. The latest update made the tile icons more presentable and a bit smaller. The app also has a nice and detailed battery status information hub as well as bing image downloads for the past few days.

    I used the "Battery" app by Arthur Semenov.

    It tracks my battery use and also features shortcuts for connectivity.
    What's cool is that it also allows you to change the color of the tile of each connectivity.

    Quick Settings without a doubt. I've tried like 20 of them, this gives you the most settings!
