  3. ConnectivityShortcuts

    If you are an Android convert then you must have felt the need for a quick switch to enable/disable Wi-Fi, cellular data, Bluetooth, etc. There is no easy way to do this on a Windows Phone by default, but ConnectivityShortcuts solves this problem. It lets you pin live tiles on the Start screen which directly take you to the respective settings screen. You can also customize the live tiles as per your taste.
