Description

Adjust your phone's ringer mode just by movingaround. WhereRing remembers whether you want ringing, silence, orvibration in each spot. It uses fine-grained GPS to notice whenyour location changes, and it updates your ringer accordingly.WhereRing is quite streamlined; check out Locale® if you wantsomething more elaborate. This is free (gpl3) software (http://code.google.com/p/wherering/).

WhereRing uses the high-power/fine-accuracy GPS modeexclusively, so it is better for daily/local use and nightlyrecharging than for use with rarely-visited, region-sized ringermode areas. In the latter case, you should (de)activate WhereRingon a temporary basis rather than allowing it to activateautomatically when your Android starts up.

Ringer mode zones ("places") can be configured by typing inlatitude/longitude, or with the "use current location" feature.Each place can have a name, a radius, and a ringer mode (vibrate,ring, or silent). You can view places on a Google Map to verifythat the coordinates are as you expect.

Normally, WhereRing remembers your original mode as you enter alocation, changes the mode according to your settings, and restoresthe mode as you leave. If you manually change your ringer modewhile you are in a location, WhereRing will leave that override ineffect until you enter a new location.

Users who are new to Android: this application makes use ofmenus activated by your hardware menu button, so as not to clutteryour display with less-frequently-used buttons. Consult yourdevice's user manual if you are unaware of the existence of thestandard Android menu feature.
