What is the quickest way to access the Settings on an iPad?

What is the quickest way to access the Settings on an iPad? (I mean, the usual cogwheel "app" called Settings)
In particular, I'm looking for a quicker way (or a more convenient one) to access it from an open application, than hitting the "home" button, possibly swiping the home pages, and tapping on it.
(I know, I know, I already placed it in the bottom bar, so I have it available from all pages...)
It would be great if I could cut another step or two. I mean, there are situations where I need to use the Settings app repeatedly. I wonder why it was not included in the iOS 7 swipe-from-bottom menu, while the "Camera" or "Countdown Timer / Clock" made the cut.
I know everybody will have a different opinion on what should be included in that menu, and choices have to be made, but still...
for example, on my Android smartphone the newer OS updates placed a shortcut to the settings app in the upper-right corner of the swipe-down menu, which is like the most prominent place you could place it in.
Anyway, do you know of one or more alternative ways to access the Settings app?
(Oh, and yeah, it just occurred to me that I can four-finger swipe it, if I have accessed it recently, but again if I access another app or two in between it will become at least as cumbersome as going through the home page).

Anyway, do you know of one or more alternative ways to access the Settings app?
Short answer, no. If you have a suggestion for future iOS functionality, use the feedback functionality found elsewhere on this site.

    What is the easiest way to access the router from an iPad?  I have no problems accessing it from my laptop.  Even though I am entering the address in the left address box, not the Google search box, it wants to do either a search, or add www to the beginning of the IP address.
    I usually can eventually access the router, but it is way to much trouble.  However, I use my iPad hundreds of times more often than my laptop.

    Are you typing http:// in front of the IP address of the router? e.g. http://192.168.0.1
    Sometimes, and with some routers it doesn't seem to like it if you miss off the http://

  • What's the quickest way to access translation text to another language?

    I translate text to Spanish fairly regularly and sometimes I need to make sure that I'm writing it correctly. I'm not a native speaker. Can I do this from my desktop and see my translation side by side with what I'm writing in English? My viewers are both English speakers and Spanish speakers.

    If you are still interested in using a translator, I recommend the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gtranslator/?src=userprofile gTranslator] add-on.<br>
    This add-on is similar to the Google Chrome translation bar.

  • I downloaded an app.  then upgraded my new 4s to IOS7, and the app icon disappeared, the onlly way to access the app is to go to the app icon and search for it, and then open, I cannot find the app icon, but the provider says it is stored somewhere ?

    How or where do I find the app in the iphone, the provider says it is stored somewhere?

    More than likely it is on an altenate home screen (swipe to the left to navigate), or in a folder. When you did the spotlight search, did it indicate as folder?

  • What is the quickest way to incorporate a new template's styles into an existing template?

    Recently my company have developed a new template. I am creating a document using much content which already exists in an older template with different paragraph styles, table formats and page formats. What is the quickest way to incorporate the new styles so I don't have to individually update the table contents. The paragraph catelog and tables have different titles in the two documents.
    Thanks,
    Niall.

    Do you know where I can find a copy of Template Mapper? I went to http://ig5authoringtools.com/plugin-directory/single-sourcing/templatemapper/ and it is not there.
    Thanks in advance

  • What's the quickest way to open Access Connections?

    What's the quickest way to open Access Connections, apart from its Taskbar level meter?
    I prefer to use the Power Manager battery meter instead, as it looks pretty ugly when both are used, and they take up too much space.
    Fn+F5 no longer gives any access to Access Connections either.  And it is not integrated into the standard Windows network system tray icon's right-click menu, like Power Manager is with the standard power system tray icon.
    You cannot even type Access Connections in the Start Menu search box, as the shortcut is called something else, which I can never remember.
    Ideally, I would at least like to be able to access it though the Fn+F5 box again (I'm pretty sure it was possible in versions).

  • Whats the quickest way to export packages,tables etc from one enviroment

    Hi
    whats the quickest way of more loads of packages, tables, indexes etc. from one enviroment to another?
    I did some things in apex.oracle.com workspace to test apex now I want to move it across to my xe installation.

    Hello,
    2 'fast' options really -
    1) Export of application + Export/DataPump of schema
    This works if you want a complete 'mirror' from one environment to another of the schema objects
    2) Supporting Objects
    Bundle all your requirements together with the application export.
    The Supporting Objects feature absolutely rocks and yet very very (very!) few people seem to use it.
