GravityRinger: Use gravity to silence your phone

Postby MrSnowflake » Wed Oct 01, 2008 4:16 pm

I have the habit of forgetting to put my mobile phone in silence mode, when I go to class or to restaurant, so I thought, actually, my phone doesn't need to make noise when it's in my pants. So I made this little app, which uses the orientation sensor of the phone to detect if it's upside down in my pants (the way I put my phone in my pocket). So if it's upside down for a couple of ms, it goes to vibrate mode, but when I take it out of my pants, to put it on my desk or something, it will go back to normal mode, making noise when being called.

Take a look: http://code.google.com/p/snowservices/w ... vityRinger

Thanks, I do hope it works, as (ofcourse) I couldn't test this in real life.

Yeah these kind of apps getting to fly after the devices are really available and being able to use. I'm really looking forward getting a G1 into my hands. :-)

Yeah, I'm thinking about importing one, if that's possible. I live in Europe, so in best case, it'll take till january before I can get my hands on a real device. And I really can't wait to get my hands on a real device to start coding, well actually, to start to see if my programs really are usefull :D.

I'd like to import one as well so we are in the same boat. :-) I hope that there will be some kind of developer program announced soon. I don't think that they will start an unfair challenge. With letting developers with hardware compete against developers without hardware.

Another from Europe joins the party 8)
We'll have to do a trip to UK in November!
Do you know in which country the mobile operators (or shops) have to sell mobile phones untied to a plan by law?

And for the app, here's another idea:
If the mobile camera goes blind (you zip it into your pants/purse), it could switch to LOUD or whatever the profile you want.
It could be programmed to watch the camera in specific intervals, and/or in combination with the accelerometer.

:shock: great idea :!:

Will probably need some reallife adjustment.
Will it be free :?:

When devices are out I'd like to give a short review on your app. ( http://www.anddev.org/get_your_applicat ... t2887.html )

In France the devices must be available without contract by law.

In Belgium we only have devices without contract by law :D.

@Plusminus: Yeah I believe it need some tweaking, but as it's opensource you can fix it for your own needs. And there already is a small adjustment activity there.

Oh that sounds great. :D (but you have senseless red flags at the beach so it wasn't fun going wind surfing in Belgium :D)

You could import devices for us. :-)

I went to Germany in May to visit a friend and there's a lot of good beer there! hahaha
German Reinheitsgebot: "... it was the oldest food quality regulation in the world ..." +info
Maybe we should move this thread to Off-Topic (or Chillout) 8)

MrSnowFlake: (In order to reenter the topic) What do you think about the idea of adding the camera capabilities to change the ring profile?

Belgian Beer is the best! West-Vleteren, West-Malle, Grimbergen, Orval, Duvel, Jupiler, Stella, Cristal, ... :D

OT: Could you tell me what you imagine on doing with the camera?
You mean, when the camera is dark? Heh, haven't thought about that yet :). But that could work, tough it'll use a lot more battery power. On the plus side, the phone will be silent at night :).
