    Hopefully, when more devs create more widgets, Apple will create a category just for widgets in the AppStore.

    Testing out Launcher, but may not use all the apps shown. There's one similar to Launcher called Favorites. It just has contacts from your Favorites list to choose from.

    The reason why I like launcher is because you can create shortcuts to system toggles like I did for turning on personal hotspot.

    I just installed iMonitor, Widget and Wdgts which are all free.

    Thanks for the tip. That's more what I want to do. How do you get toggles?

    The Yahoo! Weather widget is nice but they need to center the widget in the NC.

    They'd probably just have to make it slightly smaller. It doesn't bother me.

    In Launcher app, when adding a new shortcut, select "Custom Launcher". You have to assign an image to the icon shortcut, name it and enter the URL. Here's what I found so far:

    - Personal Hotspot (prefs:root=INTERNET_TETHERING)
    - Location Services (prefs:root=LOCATION_SERVICES)
    - Mobile Data (prefs:root=MOBILE_DATA_SETTINGS_ID)
    - Sounds (prefs:root=Sounds)
    - VPN (prefs:root=General&path=VPN)
    - Phone App (mobilephone://)
    - Settings App (prefs:root)
    - Cell Usage (prefs:root=General&path=USAGE/CELLULAR_USAGE)
    - Battery Usage (prefs:root=General&path=USAGE/BATTERY_USAGE)
    - Display and Brightness (prefs:root=Display&Brightness)

    If anybody knows of anymore, please post them.

    There's a settings app where you can choose some things. Thanks.
    Here's part of the settings list.

    Looks like Apple created a section for Widgets.
