Settings Plus App for Windows Phone

Settings Plus

Today I created my first windows application, Settings Plus.

As a Windows Phone user myself, I did not see any applications out there that provides quick access to phone settings, especially to put the phone in silent mode (ringer and vibrate off). I really wanted this, so I dove in and started coding myself. I ended up creating a nice first application that lets the user pin Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular and Airplane mode directly to their Start. Unfortunately,  the SDK does not provide resources to modify the vibrate settings. Hopefully this will come in the future.
