    Fast Toggles Is Like A Jailbroken Notification Center For Your Mac



    One of the best things in the new iOS7 beta is Command Center, which lets you toggle Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, the flashlight (on the iPhone anyway), AirDrop and others from one quick-to-access place. Fast Toggles wants to do the same and more, only on your Mac.

    The utility gives you a bunch of apps that you can drag to the dock for one-click access to certain functions. You can toggle them just by clicking them, or you can drag the entire Fast Toggles folder into the dock and get two-click popup access to everything right there. Here’s the list:

    Bluetooth
    Desktop Icons
    Eject All
    Empty Trash
    Hidden Files
    Lock Screen
    Logout
    Mute Sound
    Open Downloads
    Open Dropbox
    Open Home Folder
    Quit All Apps
    Restart
    Shutdown
    Sleep Display
    Wifi

    Now, some of these are easy enough to toggle already. Bluetooth has a menubar item, mute even has a keyboard button, and the folder shortcuts could be equally well accessed by dragging the folders themselves into the dock. And of course you could roll your own version or all of these using Automator.

    But the mixture of genuine utility (show/hide desktop icons; show/hide hidden files; lock screen) plus the neat, custom icons make this worth a look.

    The app suite costs $10, but right now you can use the coupon code “cultofmac” to get them for $2. Or you could fire up Automator and make your own.
