  1. choose "and" or "or" for conditions

    Right now the rule is "or" for like conditions and "and" for unlike conditions. I would like to be able to specify to use"and" or "or" on the condition. For instance I want a rule that activates if I am "at home" (location) or "on charger" (battery)

    • Associate Icons with Profiles

      It would be great to have a selection of pre-canned icons to represent profiles (e.g., car, home, work, airplane, night, meeting, etc). These icons could then be shown for notifications (e.g., when you've set a timed lock on a profile) and also for the widget (so that it becomes an immediate visual notification of which profile is currently active.

      • Create Action - Phone face down

        There are plenty of apps that allow you to silence your phone by turning it face down on a table. Why not add this feature??

          this feature has been added through external SP Gravity condition plugin as of 1.0.19 (in testing right now, you are welcome to sp support google group for details)

          Please mind that due to Android limitation it only works with screen on (i.e. phone is not sleeping)

        • A condition on the running state of another application

          • 2G Networks only

            On my Milestone there is a setting to use only 2G networks. I would like to be able to turn that setting on when my battery is low.

              After a weeks of experimenting for workaround to control this setting on any firmware with ROOT access we gave up. While we were able to switch 2G/3G mode, we could not archive production level stability.

              So SP will control this setting only on phones with CyanogenMod 6.0 ROM

              You may try 1.0.18.5B5 beta from support forum or wait until official release

            • Make it possible to turn off screen without lock

              When i am at home the screen should turn off after a certain time ( 30 sec or 1 Min or so ) but i dont want to unlock the screen. So i want in the profile "home" not only the option "screen timeout" because here the screen locks. I want to put on the screen with clicking the "home" or "back" or " "menu" hardware button. Also an idea is to make it happen that the screen should only turn of if i dont make moves with the phone. Lets say after a certain time (30 Sec or 1…

              • Detect wifi location based on SSID detected, not having to actually connect to the AP.

                Currently its limited to only being able to connect, but I want to detect some ssid i have no access to determine that I am in a certain location like a customer's office.

                • Set Google Talk (GTalk) Status

                  One of the few things I miss in Setting Profiles that I used frequently in Locale (albeit, through a plug-in) was the ability to set my phone's GTalk status based on conditions. Any chance this could be implemented as an action in Setting Profiles?

                  • Importance number on rules

                    Sometimes you just want the settings for certain rules to have the upper hand, no matter which other rules apply.

                    f.e. when my battery is below 30% is want everything muted and wifi/gps/sync/... off. The settings of that rule would have preference over everything else. Settings that aren't defined within this rule can be overriden by lower rules ofcourse.

                      Currently we are thinking about following logic:

                      AcitvateProfile will have ability to set priority for profile to be activated. And based on this priority it will put profiles in active profile stack. For example:

                      RuleA activates profile LowBattery with priority 10 when battery is below 20%
                      RuleB activates WiFiOnSyncOn profile with default priority 5 when you arrive at home.

                      If it happens that your RuleA triggers so you have LowBattery(1) and than you arrive at home, RuleB will still activate WiFiOnSyncOn but will put it below LowBattery. Order will be as this: LowBattery(2), WiFiOnSyncOn(1)

                      Once you plug your phone LowBattery gets deactivated restoring settings to WiFiOnSyncOn(1) values

                      This is quite big and complex change and we will start implementing in 1.0.16 or even 17

                    • Locale plug-in support

                      It would be nice be able to tap into the locale plug-ins and locale aware apps in the market.

                      • Create Rules with "or" conditions

                        Make it possible to define "or" conditions
                        Maybe somthing like:
                        (Monday 10:00-12:00 or Tuesday 10:00-15:00) and location is @home
                        just as an example...
                        Would really make my rules simpler

                            • start "Meeting" profile 15 minutes before meeting and stop 15 minutes after meeting

                              Hi,

                              I have set a calendar word rule so SP switches my phone to silent when I'm in a meeting, mostly I'm there a bit early and also mostly the meeting takes a bit longer than planned.
                              It would be great if SP had an option where we could (for a certain rule) set the startime earlier and stoptime later.
                              This seems like a better option than changing the times in my calendar else I'll probably mess up :)

                                    I've created two rules for my Milestone:
                                    @work, activated by GSM Cell IDs of my office. Bluetooth is deactivated here due to security reasons.
                                    @car, identified when plugging the mobile phone into car docking station. In this profile, Bluetooth is activated and my Milestone automatically synchronizes with my Bluetooth Headset / Car Radio.

                                    Unfortunately, the area around my office covered by those particular GSM cell IDs is quite wide. That means, in a area of around 500 Meters around my office, even if in the car, plugged to the dock, my Milestone is still in @work profile, so I cannot…

                                    • Change wallpaper based on profile

                                      The one feature I miss from Locale is the option to change my wallpaper based on conditions. I'd like to be able to have one wallpaper set as default, but at home have it change to something else. Please consider this.

                                        The way it works now is that whenever you select this setting in profile it will start standard system Set Wallpaper activity, than SP will make a copy of selected wallpaper and restore to original wallpaper (if profile was not active). There are few side effects and limitations:
                                        - Live wallpapers are not supported yet
                                        - Obviously SP will double store wallpapers in it’s own directory consuming space
                                        - third party wallpaper managers will be supported only if they respond to standard SET_WALLPAPER activity (well, maybe they all do since it’s the only way to integrate into MENU → Wallpaper, but since we never used any, we are not sure)

                                      • A condition to check if you're on a call

                                        My rules turn on bluetooth when I leave the house. If I'm on a call when I return home, bluetooth gets turned off during my conversation. I'm sure there are other benefits to being able to determine if I'm on a call.

                                        • "Is Profile X Active/Not Active" Condition

                                          It would be great if we could have a condition based on whether a particular Profile was/was not active.
