[App]Llama - Location Aware Mobile Application
I've been playing about with android for about a year now and I've written this app. It's a location and time-based profile application, so you can set ringer volume, vibrate mode and ring tones for when you are asleep or at work.
It's like an extremely light-weight version of Locale with very few features
Eventually I'll put it on the Market, so I'm trying to figure out if there's going to be enough interest for it.
-Would you pay 60p-£1 ($1 to £1.50) for it?
-If I put it on there as free and ask people to donate, will enough people bother at least to cover the Market fee... do people actually donate beer-money if they know they can get it for free?
-Let me know of any bugs or suggestions (Note: I'd like to keep it simple, if you want lots of features, then I'd suggest a different app)
-This version will expire mid February. I'll hopefully have decided how I want to proceed with it after mid February.
Llama comes with a predefined set of Profiles, but you can customise these.
Llama uses 'events'. Each event has a set of conditions and actions. When all of the conditions are met, the actions are run. Llama comes with some default events, but you can customise them appropriately. One of the events is named 'Quiet at night', and is based on the fact that you are at home, and the time is after 10pm. This means that when it is late and you are at home, it will turn the ringer to a lower volume. However, if you are at the pub and it's after 10pm, it will leave the ringer alone (NOTE: this is assuming that your home and the pub are suitably far away. Llama works best in built up areas with lots of phone masts). You can also create an event that disables/enables APN mobile data, so your phone isn't pointlessly checking your email overnight
Llama uses no data whatsoever, so you have to teach it the IDs of the phone masts near your home and workplace. Doing this is easy. Just go to the 'Areas' tab and long-press to tell the app to 'start learning' your home or workplace. Tell it how long you plan to be at home or work and it'll make a note of the phone masts that it finds. Then do the same for when you are at work.
