Quick Launcher for Windows Phone 8.1 gives you quick access to your cellular settings
Windows Phone 8.1 introduced a handful of new features that we’re using every day. Notification center is probably the most used out of all those features. It’s a great tool to quickly see all the notifications from your apps and to quickly toggle a select settings on and off. Unfortunately, not all settings can be accessed with in the Action center. Thankfully a new app called Quick Launcher might solve a few of your problems. Details below on how you can quickly access your cellular settings in the Notification center.
Quick Launcher is a new Windows Phone 8.1 app that allows you to get quick access to cellular settings. In addition, you can also jump quickly to popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and others.
Quick Launcher doesn’t add a true cellular toggle to the Action center. Instead it creates notifications that persist and stay in the Notification center. You can then tap them to quickly get to the cellular setting or popular apps. Right now the following apps are supported in Quick Launcher: Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, WeChat. More apps will come to the application in a future update, be sure to let the dev know which apps you want!
Quick Launcher is currently in a public beta. It’s free to download and use the app. Give it a try if you’re waiting for Microsoft to add a cellular toggle to the Action center.
Download Quick Launcher from the Windows Phone Store.
Thanks for the tip Mirko!

Nevertheless, I believe the only way this will work fast for WP is for MS to kiss more OEM ass.. That's the only way... Either that or wait till 2019 for 11% market share... But, the real challenge is for MS to somehow convince these same OEM's that they are in competition with to make somewhat midrange/low quality devices after years of making low/pitiful quality Android devices for years... Although I could be wrong because WP will probably run great on very low quality devices... Lol!!
I was just being slightly facetious.. You see????? See what I was doing now?.. :-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-)
Anyways, I'm telling you guys that WP8.1 is a real game changer.. I didn't say that with 7.0, 7.5, or even 8.0, but 8.1 is it.. It's the real deal... I've always thought of WP as way good enough for the average user, but now I can admit that even power users can enjoy the platform.. I'm really excited... Can you tell????
Lets not confuse what I'm saying as open enough for Carriers to brand, alter, and bloat, WP software... That's a whole other story..
Nevertheless, believe it or not, a few of the WP team members are active WPC members as well... So, they get a lot of feedback that way.. WPC is a good place to voice your opinion about WP..
I don't think that Michael Stroh is leading the blog anymore.. He used to always promise to relay or opinions back to the appropriate engineer... I loved that part... I'm still waiting for that app BTW... Lol❕
Oh yeah, Scubadog is on here too..
i hope they allow us to choose more options in the final release of wp8.1
Unfortunately, it would seem that 8.1 conflicts with some phones and not others. I just hope cyan firmware sorts out the problem on the 820 (if not, I'll be reverting it back to 8.0 permanently)
