Become an Android power user with Locale! This app helps you manage settings of your phone in a really smart way.
If you want to take control of your Android phone and become a power user, then Locale is the application for you! Locale was developed by the folks at Two Forty Four AM and is $9.99 in the Android Marketplace and in a nutshell is an app that helps you manage your settings of your phone, but in a really smart way.
Locale is a total power users application that gives you situational controls over your phone. The Time and Location based controls make this a killer app, and the sleek interface design makes it a breeze to use. The only drawbacks are that I found the location based settings to be a bit clunky and GPS control is missing from the settings. Also, it's pricey, at $9.99 for a powerful app but one that you set up and then forget about.
Review by: Ron Richards
The developers behind Locale contacted us and let us know that Locale can indeed toggle GPS as a setting by leveraging Locale's plug-in architecture that allows new Conditions and Settings to be added to the app. To find plug-ins available for Locale, simply open Locale and choose "Get Plug-ins" from the menu. One of the plug-ins available on the Android Market is the "Locale GPS Plug-in," which can toggle the system-wide GPS setting.
With hundreds of apps to choose from for your iPhone, Android or whatever smartphone you may have, how do know what's worth the download? AppJudgment is your daily source for phone app reviews and previews.
