Default App to turn on WIFI on phone with dead touch screen

I have an EVO 4G LTE with a failed touch screen and am seeking a way to pull pictures off local memory using WIFI direct. However, my phone's WIFI is turned off and I'm unable to use the touch screen for input.

Is there an app that I can download via play that'll automatically turn on my phones wireless without any other interaction on my part?

Can't you just connect it via USB and pull the files?

No, because I'm unable to select the option that allows me to see it as a storage device.

Hmm... would I need the phone to be in debugging mode to utilize that method? I don't believe I had it set that way.
