    Profiles (ala BlackBerry) on Droid?

    Anyone have suggestions about how you would go about setting up something like custom "profiles" on the Droid to quickly adjust sounds?

    For example, during normal operating conditions, I'd like to have my ringer set to loud and notifications also loud, but at night, I'd like to silence all notifications and have my ringer set to low. Sort of a "wake" mode and a "sleep" mode. Make sense?

    I was able to achieve this on my Blackberry by creating custom profiles.

    Market is your friend folks. I went into market and did a search for Profiles. I was given a list of many, but the first was named Quick profiles which creates custom ones. Have not tried it, but it is free and have good reviews. I am sure there are many others.

    Just downloaded and tested it. You can literally change every setting imaginable. Ringer mode, volume, Media volume, Notification volume, Alarm volume, wifi, bluetooth, brightness and so on... worked great.

    Check out Locale: Locale v0.69 beta Application for Android | Tools

    It allows you to create profiles based on certain conditions (time, location, calendar events, etc...) and then it will activate them when the conditions are met. For example I have a condition for when I get home that turns my ringer on loud and turns the Wi-Fi on.

    I use it ALL the time and it amazes me every time.

    I downloaded Quick Profile. It works great. I put it on my home screen and I can quickly change from Loud, Low and Vibrate. (You create as many profiles as you want, name them and customize them)

    I posted a topic on this before I found this thread. Locale does exactly what I want, which was just automatically changing volume profiles whether it's charging or not. Thanks!
