Status Tiles for WP8 brings quick connectivity settings to your home screen
One of the bigger gaps between Windows Phone 8 and the other major mobile platforms is the lack of quick and easy way to toggle the system settings of your device. Android enthusiasts can access most of their phone's settings via the notification panel, iOS users can do so via the Control Center, yet fans of the WP platform have to rely on third-party apps to fill this void. Status Tiles, a recent addition to the Windows Phone Store, is an app of this kind.

Status Tiles allows WP users to create custom tiles, which give access to various connectivity settings, such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, airplane mode, and so on. While many other apps (System Tiles, QuickSetting, etc.) offer similar functionalities, Status Tiles has some aces up its sleeve, which help it somewhat stand out from the competition. First of all, in order to “blend in” with the overall look of your home screen, the app uses official WP8 icons for the tiles. What's more, each tile has an indicator at the bottom, which lets users know if the corresponding setting is switched on or off. Provided that you have installed the GDR3 update, Status Tiles will allow you to create a dedicated tile for rotating the screen of your smartphone.

The free-to-download-and-use Status Tiles app is available for all devices, which sport the Windows Phone 8 platform.
