    Hi,
    I wanted to know if an app existed where you could just click on the app, and it automatically turns wifi on/off. I've had my iPod touch for a week and I already can't stand going in the settings over and over... :D

    I looked on MRoogle, but all the threads were old... Maybe something new showed up?

    thanks!

    Why not just keep settings open and then double tap the home button to open the multitasking bar and choose settings? You could keep settings at the wifi window.

    Yea, it's a bit of a pain. Fortunately turning Airplane mode on is the top selection in Settings, and it turns all the radios off when ON.

    There's an Android widget for that. Perhaps Jobs doesn't want to appear to be copying. I believe developers are prevented from making apps that mess with system settings, and of course WiFi is one of those.

    ok, well thanks guys... i might do as you say iBookG4user... its just a bit longer i guess... :p
    and 4DThinker... what do you mean by
    and i guess they dont want an app that would dramatically increase the battery, therefore the ipod's, life...
    anyway... thanks again! :)

    Slide to ON the Airplane Mode option in Settings, and the result is that all the radios (WiFi/Bluetooth/Cell connection) turn OFF.

    Only if you've turned it on.
