    Coming from android there was always the 'power widget' which I could tap and the Wi-Fi would directly turn on without having to go into the settings. I know there are apps like connectivity shortcuts and Toggle that will give you live tiles and when you tap them they will take you directly to the Wi-Fi or Data settings, but is there an app on WP8 that will turn this stuff on or off for me? Like I tap the tile and that's it - wifi is on? It's not a huge problem, just wondering if this is something WP doesn't support or?

    I don't believe this is possible due to restrictions within the OS. The shortcut tiles are the next best thing. I'd love functionality like you have, but I am thankful that we have one better than IOS still in these regards.
