    Locale app

    Anyone here have it? Is it worth the $10?

    It seems like it has potential to be a great app and I want it, just hate to waste $10 and it not be good.

    Any reviews or thoughts from you guys?

    I have Settings Profile Lite, and it works amazingly well. It's free, and until 6/1 will allow you to have more then one profile. After that, you can set 1 profile, and it will switch between that and whatever the settings were prior to going into that profile based on the criteria you enter.
    I only have one profile set up, and it will disable WiFi, put the phone on silent, and change the screen shut off timer to 30s when I get to work. It currently doesn't go off GPS (I think that's coming) but it goes by the cell tower, so anytime I'm within 1/2 mile of the cell tower that services my work, it'll activate that profile.
    When I leave the area, it automatically sets it back to full volume, turns on wifi, and changes the screen shutoff back to 1 minute.
    If you need more then one profile, it's only $3.95, so IMHO, it's better then Locale.
    I'm a big fan of shareware
    HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...

    One thing to remember; if it's less than 24-hours you can uninstall and get a refund.

    It would help if I spelled it correctly, it's Setting Profiles Lite

    for what concerns your initial question, Locale.

    I've been using it everyday since months.
    I've 4 settings:

    OFFICE - triggered by the location (no gps)
    -- puts the ringer volume to 0 + vibro
    -- change the background to a nice "officish" bg
    -- turns off GPS
    -- puts brightness to Auto
    -- put my gtalk status to available but "working"
    -- screen timeout to 1 min

    HOME - triggered by the location (no gps)
    -- puts the ringer volume back to 50%
    -- GPS OFF
    -- gtalk status to available with no status message
    -- brightness to 0%
    -- screen timeout 1min
    -- wallpaper to "homish" relaxing one

    CAR DOCK - triggered when i put my droid in it's car dock (locale plugin)
    -- brighness to 100%
    -- GPS ON
    -- Gtalk status to BUSY and message "driving"
    -- ringer volume to 50%
    -- screen timeout to "never"
    -- launch "Grooveshark" (via locale plugin "shortcut" which let you launch any activity)

    I bought my droid cause of this application. It's absolutely a MUST, in my opinion. The triggers work almost perfectly. I got used to the fact that the trigger based on location takes a few seconds to realize where you are. When i first started using this app I didn't like this at all, then i realized that the advantages of the automation overcomes this little issues you get.
