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.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
