Nokia Situations

by Volker Weber

Nokia Situations helps your device tie more into your life. You can manually define situations, like “In a meeting”, “Sleeping”, “Watching TV”, or “Playing with kids” and define how you want the device to act. With the application running in the background, your device automatically senses the situation you are in and adapts to it according to your preferences.

Using this now to automatically switch off ringtones at night and back on in the morning. I missed a few calls when I failed to change the profile manually. This is just the beginning, I am only scratching on the surface of what Situations can do.

Despite the not so professional sounding name, I like AudioGuru on Android.

I use "Locale" on Android for this and it's always worked well for me. Can change volume levels, brightness, toggle bluetooth/wifi/gps etc. based on time, location or even the presence of an SSID.

It sees my office wifi network and reduces the volume so I don't disturb my colleagues. It connects to bluetooth in the car, it turns media volume up to max and disables screen lock. At home, after 10:30pm, on the mains charger - lowest brightness and silence until 7am.

I loved Situations very much on Symbian, years back. Also had profiles to be muted when connected to work wlan and having an appointment or being silent during night time when at home. Worked great for me.

It is kind of curious, that all these features, Symbian had years ago, are now coming back. Back then, nobody cared, now they are touted as biiig innovations. Funny, isn't it?
