    BlackBerry Profiles Scheduler Version 1.3 is available!

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    I've made some significant updates/fixes to the BlackBerry Profiles Scheduler and have made v1.3 available now.

    Try it now for 7 days!
    Get it here, via OTA download, or Desktop Manager download:
    BlackBerry Profile Switcher

    If you're ready to buy it, it's available at Handango.

    BlackBerry Profile Scheduler - Handango Blackberry Software

    Or at my own site below, via PayPal.

    Version 1.3
    Get it here, via OTA download, or Desktop Manager download:
    BlackBerry Profile Switcher

    What can the program do?
    • Create "rules" to control which Profile is active. You select the Profile, the days and the duration of the rule.
    • Assign a profile Profile to a Calendar event. The rule will automatically adjust if the time of the Calendar event is changed. Likewise, the rule will delete itself if the calendar event is deleted.
    • Allow "nested" profiles. You can create a rule that spans the whole day if you like, and when a rule ends, it will switch back to the rule that spans the whole day.


    There are a few things you need to be aware of as you try out the program.
    • The program is currently tested on a large number of BlackBerry devices on OS 4.1 and 4.2.
    • The program requires that keystroke injection be allowed for the application. (Instructions on how to do this are in the application.). NOTE : If you are on a BES, you may have to ask your BES administrators for permission to enable keystroke injection.
    • The profile will not switch when the BlackBerry is holstered or the keyboard is locked. You will be notified by an audible alert if this condition occurs, and immediately upon unlocking, or unholstering, the profile will switch.
    • Cannot work with custom profiles (coming soon!)


    Here are some program screenshots:

    The icon on the main screen.


    The program's splash screen.


    The main interface in inactive mode.


    The main interface in active mode.


    Creating a new rule.


    A typical rule.


    A profile change in action.


    The main menu to add rules, etc.


    The calendar interface.


    Assigning a profile to a calendar entry.


    After the rule is saved.


    How the rule displays in the main application.


    How to change current rules.


    Bet you're now wondering "Where can I get it!?!?!".

    If you're ready to buy it, it's available at Handango.

    BlackBerry Profile Scheduler - Handango Blackberry Software

    Or at my own site below, via PayPal.

    Version 1.3
    Get it here, via OTA download, or Desktop Manager download:

    Please let me know what you think.

    I'm sorry for the trouble you're having with the OTA download. Others have reported this issue too, and I've really no way to diagnose it. Please try to download the .zip file and install the application via Desktop Manager. I wish I had a better answer for you.

    Will it work if I buy it this time? I tried the beta version that you released a few weeks ago, and it wasn't working to save my life. The profiles never switched, and if they did, it was at random, never when I set them to. I would be more than willing to buy this program (deleted it because it was wasting space)....if it works this time.

    Please download the trial and give it another shot. Hopefully the latest round of changes will solve a lot of problems experienced by early adopters.

    It worked twice last night and stopped. Kept the phone only profile all night and didn't turn it back to loud this morning. Do I have to sdpecify what I want it to turn back to anf when? There needs to be a default profile.

    With this release, you can create a "default" profile by creating a rule that goes from 12:00AM to 11:59PM. That way, when you have no other rule scheduled, the switch will be made back to the "default" rule.

    This make sense?

    Re: BlackBerry Profiles Scheduler Version 1.3 is available!

    this is all very confusing.

    I think the best way to have it is... if possible.

    New Profile Change -
    -Start time
    -End Time
    -Profile

    -default profile when not in use - profile

    example

    Profile - Sleep
    Start - 10pm
    End - 7AM Next morning
    Profile - Phone Only

    I am sure you could use the calendar api to go over to the next day.

    I can't make the calender apts line up with the profile. It always says the the event is in the past, even when its an apt set for next week.

    I ended up have to do defaults to cover "dead" time...if that makes sense.

    IMO until those bugs are worked out, its not worth money. We as the user shouldn't have to create defaults or fixes. This isn't user friendly

    it is worth every dime, this is the kind of app that will save my butt in meetings when my 3yr old son decides to start calling. Set it and forget it, yes you do need a default profile and yes it still needs some work (I am not too crazy about the icon or the big clock screen lol) but the developer is very responsive and he listens to his customers, IMO that is a plus.

    Hi there,

    Is the appointment you're trying to set for a recurring appointment? If so, (currently) you must open the instance you want to set the profile for. If the instance you're opening has either already started, or in the past, it will not work.

    I do plan on creating a "default" setting in a near future release as it is requested a lot.

    The reason the release from 1.2 to 1.3 was so quick was the need to support OS 4.1.

    The next release should have fixes for recurring appointments as well as a "default" profile.

    Thanks for your comments, they are always appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    Matthew Wheaton

    Re: BlackBerry Profiles Scheduler Version 1.3 is available!

    I would really appreciate a feature that allows the profile to change when the charger is connected/disconnected.

    Is it possible to incorporate a feature such as this?

    Re: BlackBerry Profiles Scheduler Version 1.3 is available!

    I have tried both ways. I tried to set the "vibrate" profile for calendar appointments (I have my classes on the calendar as repeating) I thought that by adding the profile to a series of appointments it might combat the issue, but it wont let me add the profile to a "series" of appointments.

    There are bugs here----now I didn't say the program wouldn't be worth it if they fixed it. Granted IF it sets your phone to the vibrate profile when it's supposed to, it will save your hiney...however, if it doesn't UN-set the profile, then wifey might be quite mad when the phones vibrating on the passenger seat and you can't answer her calls when you're coming home.
