    I played with this during testing, and got the same results you did. However, it should not be working yet because this is what will be in the next upgrade.

    Here's the way I look at the whole schedule thing, that makes it less confusing for me (YMMV):

    I now look at the rules as if they only had START times and not end times. If you create your rules on that basis; where the start times are the criteria and [almost disregard] the end times are irrelevant, then scheduling rules gets a whole lot simpler to envision. Just set your rules according to when you want a profile to change, not when you want it to UN-change.

    Other than meetings, which Matthew says uses special rules, nesting should not be working in 1.2. I thought I had it working at one point, but it turned out I didn't -- it was the start times of my nested rules which were taking effect and working, but none of the end times of my nested rules did any profile changes.

    I'm looking forward to default rules and nesting myself. It takes less rules to accomplish the same tasks.

    Thanks, that does clarify things for me!

    What that means is, using my movie example above (sounds like I go to a LOT of movies, huh? I really don't, just it's an easy example) a user currently has to (1) create one rule to turn the Quiet Profile on at the start of the movie, (2) then create another rule to go back to Normal Profile, and then (3) go back into the program and disable it after the movie, so that it doesn't take effect next week at the same time, on the same day of the week!~ AND... if I understand correctly, it won't change Profiles while holstered...

    Hope he adds the option of 1x only to the Rules page.

    Once he's fine tuned it, should be a killer program, though.

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    It's already killer, but I know what you mean, hehe.

    If I'm in a rush at the movies, I'd probably just override the rules and set my profile. The problem is I might forget to switch it back.

    A one-off rule would be nice; however, time permitting, I'd probably just set up an appointment also. That is, I'd switch from Normal to Vibrate manually, and then set up an appointment rule that would put it on Vibrate. Since it's already set to Vibrate by the time the appointment rolls around (minutes from now, in my example), it'd stay that way, and return to Normal after the appointment.

    A bit clunkier than a one-off rule but...

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    Matt, I hope this won't replicate but yesterday, instead of switching to "phone only", it switched to "phone off". My questions is: Why, all of the sudden and I never even accessed the app, for editing, b4 this happened, and it was working perfectly. No biggie...so far! lol

    Hey, I also tried to install this and get the 907 error, failed. What's up. I have a 8830. Can someone point me out the the right OTA link?

    Groupwise Categories

    Any shot this will interface with groupwise categories? Like if a certain category is selected for an appt, the appt will have an automatic profile designated?

    This app will be excellent but what has put me off is it doesn't chabge profile when holstered. So when a chanhe should have happened earlier, I take out my phone and start doing something and the program suddenly pops up in the middle of me pressing keys and the change is affected by my button pressing.

    If they can fix this issue ill buy it ASAP

    Any update to this? Does this work with 4.3 and 4.5 OS?
    Has the holster issue been resolved yet?

    It works fine on my 8330 running 4.3. Can't say for 4.5. The holster issue is still there if the keyboard is locked when a profile switch occurs. That will remain as long as the app is using keystroke injection to scroll through the list of profiles.

    At first the holster 'issue' bothered me greatly. I went so far as to remove the magnet from my Otterbox (using a soldering iron). However, now I'm using a different holster with a sleeper magnet and I've just conditioned myself to unholster the phone at night, and pull to it out when I get notified by the application that the profile is trying to change.

    I am far Far FAR more likely to forget to change the profile WITHOUT this application, than to forget once or twice to pull it out of the holster so that it can change profiles which it couldn't while holstered.

    When unholstered AFTER a notification by the application, it usually takes a minute before it starts to switch profiles. If I am wanting to do something else right away and don't want to wait that minute, I switch the profile manually and then go on doing what I want to do. Yes, if I happen to press a button right while the change is happening, it might switch to the wrong profile, but if it does, then I just go check/change it immediately.

    When I first got my Pearl, I noticed you can set the device to turn on and off at certain times, and it was then I couldn't see why they hadn't made a program like this one. This should come standard on future devices.
