Create Shortcuts without JailBreaking

One of the many benefits of jailbreaking is being able to have shortcuts at your fingertips. These shortcuts are mostly found under what’s called  SBSettings. Since, we are still waiting on a jailbreak for the iPhone 4S some are using other shortcut methods.  Many developers are getting antsy I think and starting to  come up with other ways to tweak the springboard. There is an application in the App Store called Icon Project for $.99 that allows the user to create their own shortcuts and paste them onto the springboard such as you would a bookmark. Please watch the tutorial below for in-depth demonstration on how to use Icon Project. There is also a list of commonly used shortcuts that you will need to help complete this.
