Since moving to Colorado, my schedule has lightened up a bit but I really wish I'd had an app like Profile Scheduler when I was working full time. With this app, you can set your sound profiles according to your weekly and weekend schedule. Have a weekly meeting at the same time every Monday? Worried you will be that person who forgets to turn their cell phone to silent? Worry no more, Profile Scheduler by Javatek Media has you covered! Keep reading after the break for all the features and screenshots of this fantastic app!
Designed exclusively for OS 7.1, Profile Scheduler allows you to automatically switch your active BlackBerry profile whenever you need it to. The flexible and easy to use scheduler lets you decide exactly the time and day(s) of the week that a profile should be changed, making this ideal for work, school, or even just automatically switching to silent at night. Another great feature in the app is the Temporary Activation Feature which allows you to temporarily activate a different profile. Ideal for avoiding situations where the phone was switched to the Silent profile and accidentally left on Silent mode for the rest of the day (happens to me more often then I'd care to say). As a solution, this feature could turn on the Silent profile for any period of time, like during a movie, then switch it back to your previous profile automatically.
Great example uses for this application:
- Automatically schedule your phone to go silent at night and back on in the morning.
- Easily schedule different times for weekends.
- Have a job? Change your profile automatically when you start and end work. Easily schedule in a profile change for your lunch break as well.
- Going to school? Schedule your classes so that your phone is always silent in class and back on in between.
- No need to create new profiles. Profile Scheduler uses all of your existing BlackBerry profiles.
- While using Profile Scheduler, you can still change your active profile the same way as before.
- Pre-configured templates let you quickly get started in just minutes.
- The scheduled profile changes can be turned on and off at any time with just a button click.
- When the profile is automatically changed, the device will vibrate to let you know (can be turned off).
- Temporary Activation - automatically change your profile after a certain period of time.
- Works even if device is holstered or locked
I am a person who is very easily distracted by noises and such. Once my train of thought has been interrupted, it can be extremely difficult for me to refocus. I have found it useful to schedule "Office Hrs" and "Work" time where all notifications are set to Silent. This way I can answer emails or work on a post without worrying about Facebook or Twitter notifications distracting me.
Profile Scheduler is available for $1.99 on all carriers and in all countries on the following devices running OS 7.1 or higher: 9350, 9360, 9370, 9810, 9850, 9860, 9900, 9930, 9981.There is a FREE version available as well with limited features.
