Last night I updated Power Schedule to version 2.1. I listened to people who complained about the new User Interface. Yes, now that I look at it, it was poorly designed. But somehow I missed this because I got used to it (while working on it).
Anyhow, I hope you like the new one. It’s much more clean and intuitive. I also added a “reboot” event – for Power Users who rooted their phones. You can set up a reboot each night, to have a “clean” phone in the morning (for example).
I plan to add a lot of other features as well – some suggested by users.
Many thanks go to these people (in no particular order):
They helped me fix some issues and contributed with some ideas (or translations). I will also add their names (with their permission) in the About page (inside the App).
Looking forward to the next version
One of the users wrote me an e-mail that after uninstalling Power Schedule, when he turned on Airplane Mode, WiFi was still enabled. This is because Power Schedule (and others) change this setting to allow individual control over WiFi, Bluetooth and Telephony. Since the application being uninstalled is not notified it’s being uninstalled, it has no chance of cleaning up (and restoring previous settings). This is how Android is designed (a bit of a flaw, in my opinion – on Windows Mobile an application was notified before uninstall).
Anyway, I wrote a small app to restore the settings. Download and install it using Astro or whatever file manager you have on your device.
Here’s the link:
I just uploaded a version 1.2. I added (preliminary) Bluetooth support – it can now be configure individually. Well, sorta. It seems that if Airplane mode is ON (therefore Phone is off), Bluetooth can’t be started. It’s an Android platform limitation – I’m not sure if it can be resolved at all (but I will do my best).
So, push your update button in the Market 🙂
PS. If you like this app, please recommend it and share your review with other people – I know, it’s far from perfect – but it will be :).
