Features & Ease of Use:
Locale Android App offers a convenient and smart way to manage phone settings. You can do things like automatically change screen brightness, ringtone volume, backgrounds, etc. These settings are defined as Situations, you determine the Condition (choose from Battery, Contact, Location, Orientation, Time) for which Settings (Bluetooth, Brightness, Ringtone, Screen Timeout, Volume, Wallpaper, or Wi-Fi) you would like. Add, remove or change as many situations as you like.
Gripe alert: adding a location could be a bit easier plus it tends to be inaccurate especially stressful since the app uses Google Maps. This app used to be free but now priced at $10 bucks, so we recommend trying for 24 hours to evaluate its features.
