Night Profile Switcher Gets Your Android Ready for Bed
There are numerous ways to set up your Android phone for day-to-day activities. Whether it’s setting alarms, using NFC tags in strategically placed parts of your house and car, or even some OEM skins with similar features built-in, there are ways to automate many tasks on Android. However, sometimes it can get needlessly complicated. Now, there is an easier way at least to get your device ready for bed.
XDA Senior Member superkoal released an application that helps you set up a night profile for your device. It’s a very simple application that helps you toggle what you need at night. Here are some of the features:
– Turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, Sound & Vibration
– Set your phone to flight mode
– Lock the screen
– Start alarm clock
– Revert in the morning by clicking the notification
– Show good night message with haptic feedback
– more to come!
It controls some pretty basic functions right now, but even so, it’s easier than manually making these changes yourself. In addition, the next version will feature a tablet-optimized UI, translations for French and Spanish, as well as the ability to turn off sync. If you’re looking for an easy way to turn some stuff off at bed time, you may want to give this a try. For more details, check out the original thread.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
