What's New in Version 2.3.1
Facetime shortcut removed. (Apple's review policies)
Limited* Symbols Choice, GR8 Custom Choices
Works fine on my both my iPhone and iPad mini w/ iOS 6.1.3 and makes the home screen icons that act like shortcuts just as described. A basic app of its type, NO ads that try to trick you, and a bonus feature. (Added 1 star to offset those dweebs.)
(Wow) One unique capability I have not found elsewhere:
The app was written so it *can* create a *working* Bluetooth toggle, AND it will toggle Bluetooth *both* On and Off. V. Handy!
BT TOGGLE DETAIL:
Another reviewer got it wrong and listed a Capitalization typo. You make a Custom URL shortcut icon and use this exactly in the blank field that you normally fill in with the web address that you want for your shortcut (no quotes though) "prefs:toggle=Bluetooth"
* could use a mail envelope icon and an open book icon to be added to the custom symbols included w/ the app
Tricky at First
It's a bit tricky at first to set up but works like a charm. If you're trying to create shortcuts to your Settings/Apps (eg Bluetooth or Skype), you have to search the help menus to get the instructions to put in "prefs:toggle=Bluetooth" .. It's case sensitive but saves me a bunch of time at the end of the day. My only wish is that Iconizer makes some more options when creating initial shortcuts so the user doesn't have to manually add things in.
Works great for me!
Not sure why this app has negative reviews. I haven't had any issues when using for contact shortcuts.
