    Locale replacement

    I really liked Locale...until it became a pay app.

    The beta was free, but had its issues. (inaccurate GPS for one). Now with Locale 1.0, this is potentially fixed, but with a steep $10 price tag.

    Are there any apps out there that do pretty much the same thing as locale, but are more reasonably priced or free?

    I'm using timeriffic to replace Locale. Since the location wasn't reliable, I realized I mostly used the time functions. I work from 8-5, set to vibrate. Evenings, ring, from 10-7 quiet. It works well and you can set the volume, vibrate, notifications, etc.

    I looked at timeriffic but I use a couple of other functions of locale...such as Contacts (when wife call, ring at max volume), etc...

    The Locale beta just expired on me... Anyone know of another app that knows when the phone is plugged in between certain hours, and then it'll adjust the sound?


    Just need to really turn off notifications at night.

    This is what I want too, but *le sigh* i have found no replacement as of yet. I really hate to buy locale for $10 just for that.

    I am using Timeriffic to quiet my phone during work and sleep hours, but I just know the day is coming when I'm not actually home and in bed during my "sleep" hours and I miss a call or txt because my notifications are turned down or off.

    I have been using Toggle Settings (its in the market) by CoolMagic.

    Does everything I want done, and can do more.

    The *only* thing that doesn't quite work on it is that it doesn't detect being plugged in very well. Sometimes it works, most of the time, it changes to Charging Settings when I unplug the charger.

    Hopefully the devs will notice this bug and get it fixed...

    I have yet to find anything else that worked. Timeriffic was crap and didn't hardly ever work...

    thanks for sharing, i'm going to check it out. timeriffic works great for me, has never once failed to switch in a month of use.

    looks like others are reporting the same.

    quick profiles does everything that locale did for me. i would just recommend having a different wallpaper for each of your profile otherwise you have no idea what profile is selected. i had that feature set on locale anyway so it wasn't a big deal to me. otherwise it works great and much faster than locale and it's free.
