Pros and cons of Icon Project (Home Screen Icon) app for iPhone and iPad
Icon Project (Home Screen Icon) app good for
This app dont work with ios 5.1!! When will have an upgrade?
When we buy a app we should have support for new ios as soon and released dont you think?
Works flawlessly. I created many toggles for my frequented actions and contacts.
Scope for improvement in newer versions
- preset list of iPhone url options like WLAN , Bluetooth to choose from
- Create button should directly result in creation of icon on home screen ( reduce number of clicks required )
Just love this app. Extremely simple. Great for making short cuts of all sorts
I love this so helpful just wish it was a toggle so it didnt have to open the settings but either way its sick
pretty cool app although there are some limitations. but it was fun making those shortcuts. I think when Apple finds out what you can do they might bring this app down.
Took me some time to figue it out but after its super neat!
I would recomend getting it.
Some bad moments
Its a shame, what does apple do? MAJ 5.1 quick change. Dont buy anything else from fmproject.
It just doesnt create any shortcut for configuration in IOS6. I just dont know how apple can approve something that is useless. We keep on spending money in things that are crappy. Other wonderful thing is that it is not possible to report a problem!!!
To put it simple: It wont work with actual versions of iOS although the prerequisites indicates 5.0 and above.
Therefore: Dont buy this if you run on newer versions of iOS
great idea but need to run app in the background for every shortcut and open icon app in the same time... not really what i expected
Not what I thought it was, it provides a shortcut to settings I thought you could customize the icon for messages and phone and notes and all the things that come on it, but if you want a shortcut it works okay. it opens up to a safari screen then switches over to the setting. takes the same amount of time as going into your settings so as far as Im concerned, a waste of money.
This app need update since ios 5.1 cancel the settings shortcut icon.
