SmartSMSVibrate for Android
Tired of your phone vibrating loudly when its sitting on the table or a desk? XDA Member Carsten4207 has developed a very simple app that will check where your phone is and decide whether to vibrate or not based on what you choose.
The App has two settings:
- Vibrate Out of Pocket
- Vibrate In pocket
It uses your Android phone’s proximity sensor to detect whether it is in a closed environment like your pocket or an open area like a desk or table. If you want to learn more about this app or try it out for yourself, then check out the discussion thread or search for SmartSMSVibrate on the Android Market.
