    Ringtones and profile switcher like PhoneAlarm for WM?

    Hi,

    Just switched over from Windows Mobile to Android phone.

    Anyone have any idea if there is a similar app like the PhoneAlarm:
    phoneAlarm - Best Windows Mobile profiles and alarms

    I would like to have my ringtones, alerts, etc, preset and just allow me to switch using a command or a widget.

    Appreciated. Thanks!

    Quite a few options have been discussed here. Search for "Profile". I can't say what is or isn't like PhoneAlarm since I've never used it.

    I miss Phone Alarm too!! Locale comes the closest as a replacement but still doesn't compare.

    Seconded.

    It's surprising what you can do with this. Besides what you'd expect, like being able to manipulate ringtones, volume, brightness, etc... you can also create rules that automatically change the profile, such as "change to profile X when (home/car) docked" or "change to profile Y when connected to WiFi (network name)". Very cool indeed.

    Just one example... when I connect to my car dock, my profile automatically switches to one that turns up the brightness a bit more, and disables WiFi. At the same time, SetCPU lowers my maximum OC to 800mhz. Anything to make the phone run less hot while using navigation is a good thing

    Setting Profiles does have a lot of different options. I like it. But I can't get the location setting to use the actual GPS location. It's using the cell site. I have the paid version and have "Enable GPS Satellite" checked. Anybody else having any luck with that option?

    I have had very good luck with that option, in fact my experience has been opposite of yours. I used to have trouble getting the GPS to activate and since I have it specified in my car dock profile, I have almost 100 % success getting GPS and it is usually quick, too.

    I have bluetooth selected for my car profile, and I have more trouble getting that to activate. It is very hit or miss on the bluetooth.

    Thanks everyone.

    I have tried Profile, while it works, it is not as customizable as I want it to be. Will try Setting Profiles.

    Setting Profiles does not use GPS for location stuff yet. They have it on the roadmap to add, but not supported at this time. Cell towers only. It will toggle the "enable gps" on and off of course (so other apps can use GPS) but doesn't actually use gps for location based conditions.

    Whatever you do...don't use NightRinger. They f'd up their apps on an update in Januray and won't fix or respond.
