LocationAware v0.3 for Winmo
Ever switched your phone to silent mode or vibrate mode whilst at work? And then forget to switch back and discover loads of missed calls? Well, LocationAware is an automatic profile switcher for Windows Mobile, developed by XDA forum member mohitsapru.
It works based off data received from GSM signals so most windows mobile devices should be able to use this app. The app gathers location information and the volume settings on your device.
