Automation, which is now becoming commonplace, is one of the most powerful innovations recently made easier with smartphones. Applications like Tasker and wide support of NFC have made coming up with such use-cases very simple. For instance, you can set up some scenarios based on your current location, time, and so on. Tasker is paid app, and not everyone lives in a region that supports paid apps on the Google Play Store. However, there are some free alternatives like Llama or MacroDroid, which offer very similar functionality, but the aforementioned applications are not the only options.
XDA Forum Member j2187 recently published TF Profile – Profile Scheduler, an app to make your device more battery-friendly by disabling unused applications and modes. For example, 3G isn’t required at home when WiFi is available, and sounds aren’t required while you’re sleeping. TF Profile can accommodate for these scenarios.
Every profile is easy to use, as all you need to do is to tap on the listed profiles and edit them to adjust various settings. You start with 5 initial profiles, which can be tweaked to your liking. The application can work without root access. But if you are rooted, there are additional functions available.
If you want to try a new automation app, you should definitely visit the application thread and give TF Profile – Profile Switcher a try._________
