    I strongly second a 3G/LTE smart action. I'd like to turn off 4G when my battery drops below 20% capacity.

    Thanks for all these great suggestions! I have passed along these ideas to the Smart Actions team.

    Add me to the list wanting a "not" or "default" action. I want to be able to define settings for when I am NOT currently in a situation that would cause a trigger to activate.

    I came to Smart Actions after using Locale on my D1 for years. The way they let you prioritize actions was great. I'd like to add another vote for that ability as well.

    Ok I have captured "not", "default," and "prioritization." Got it!

    Do you have a particular use case for the "Not" condition? Then I can go back to the team and explain to them.

    I have a RAZR which recently upgraded to ICS [4.0.4 and Screen Action ver. 3.1.5.1.2] I used SA extensively under 2.3.6, but now with 4.0.4 there is no "Keep Screen On" option under settings. At work my RAZR sits in a dock so I can see the clock and quickly hit mute if I'm listening to music or an audio book. Even with Developer Options / Stay Awake, the screen goes dark after 10 minutes, though the setting only works while on a charger. Imagine trying to navigate your car and having the screen go black.

    Long story short; I'd like Smart Actions to override ICS and force Keep Screen On for some of my Smart Action profiles. I want to be able to set "Screen Timeout" to "Never", for certain actions.

    Screen Timeout "never," got it! Smart Actions used to have that option and was later removed to preserve battery life. Not necessarily the teams choice choice, more of a consistency thing with the rest of the phone's settings. There have been many other requests to bring back this feature, I've made the recommendation to put this back in.

    Not sure if this was already mentioned... but I HATE getting notifications during music/movie/youtube etc playback... an option to turn off Notifications during any sort of playback would be ideal! :)

    Personally love this app!

    Could a trigger for "face up" (screen pointing up) and "face down" (screen pointing down) be added?

    Would be handy for setting off numerous actions; including volume max, mute, data disable, and so forth. I personally would like it so that if I know I am leaving my phone for quite some time I could place it face down and have it turn off data and background sync.

    Just a suggestion have a great day!
