Network Dashboard is a rather nice Windows Phone app that allows you to pin common network tasks to your Start Screen. Network Dashboard was recently updated to version 3.0 to support Windows Phone 8. With the update the developer has dropped the price to free and brings along a few new features for good measure.
The version 3.0 adds a tile for location services as well as status detection for Bluetooth and Airplane mode. You also have a new default Metro Live Tile style and an in-app purchase for additional tile styles.
The additional styles normally run $.99 but for a limited time only developer is throwing them in for free. Should any new styles be added to the collection, you'll get those for free as well.
Along with Live Tiles, Network Dashboard will let you set reminders to adjust a network setting at a particular time of day. If you are constantly turning on/off location services, WiFi and other network settings Network Dashboard may make your life a little easier.
Network Dashboard is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device and the additional tile styles are also currently a free in-app purchase (limited time). You can find it all here in the Windows Phone Store.
Oh.. if you're sporting a Windows Phone 7.x device and are currently enjoying Network Dashboard don't uninstall it. It would appear with the version 3.0 update the Windows Phone 7.x version is no longer available.
