App to turn off 3g and Location Services

Has anyone heard of an app that would turn off 3G and GPS when touched. It would be a great way to save battery life without having to go to preferences every time you wanted to turn 3G or GPS off.

not possible unless you're willing to jailbreak your phone.

How about a Wifi on/off switch? I would love that cause I hate to leave it on when I don't need it, but I want to be able to quickly turn it on.

Apps cannot modify iPhone settings (like Wifi or 3G on/off). They are completely self contained.
