Current GUI requires too much steps to start searching and pairing for a Bluetooth device. Unlock phone -> Settings -> System -> Bluetooth -> Search for devices (pulley) -> tap found device -> swipe to accept...

Please share ideas here how to create easier/faster access to pairing.

New ideas could be also used to improve access to WLAN, location... etc.

Add a settings-favourites item with long-tapping the bluetooth entry in Settings->System (this saves one tap)

There are questions open that ask for settings-favourites on the bottom of the ambience-screen (swipe left right on lock-screen) https://together.jolla.com/question/5713/idea-add-favourite-settings-icons-to-ambience-screen/

Okay, that does make the way a bit shorter. I'm still not satisfied though, because it's still three actions to get to settings from inside an application (2 from sleep). IMO toggles for Wifi, bluetooth etc. should always be only 2 actions away, in any UX concept.
