Save Time and Automate Your Device with Fences
Smartphones are quickly taking over the roles of our watches, calendars, and even our personal computers. With these miniaturized devices, we are able to set our alarms, remind ourselves about upcoming appointments, take care of business, and perform countless other tasks. These smartphones of ours can be made to truly live up to the “smart” in their name by performing automation tasks such as turning off data connectivity when not in use and, and so on.

Fences allows you to create profiles and apply scenarios that are run when your device meets certain conditions. For example, you can mute your phone’s alarm when the device is flipped down or enable mobile data in certain locations. The list of profiles is long and includes over 15 actions and 10 triggers.
