Profile lets you manipulate your phone's volumes & settings all in one convenient place. You can also schedule profile changes, so your phone responds the way you want when you want it to. Profile also gives you the option to display a notification with the current profile, which provides quick access to be able to change any of your settings. Another quick way to change the active profile is through the use of the multiple widget options that Profile contains.
One of the newer options allows you to set up both an SMS Auto-Reply and a Call Auto-Reply within your profile. You can choose whether you Auto-Reply to just people listed in your contacts, or to anyone, and you get to set your Auto-Reply message too.
Widgets available and their options:
- Profile (types: Single Tap, Set For ... Time, Set Indefinitely)
- Profile Multi (Displays list of profiles, you select)
- Profile Current (Displays current sounds/settings)

This app helped me still be able to have the features I loved on my Blackberry.
Nathan: Please contact me regarding your battery issue
Kills your battery
Works great on Droid! Need media volume & handset volume control ability to over ride profile because of variations.
Love the app on captivate. Solved problems I thought should have come stock with a high priced smart phone.
Not "perfect for ex BB users" as it does not allow the same control of notifications that the BB does.
Makes my phone a useful tool not an annoyance !! Developer is the most responsive I've encountered !!
The best, hard to believe Google didn't build this in. A Godsend for this former BB user. Developer very responsive. Droid x
Needs separate message and notifications tone. So email can have a different tone to sms etc. Some small minor probs but otherwise good.

Excellent app! Works as expected please continue to refine the small stuff like UI. I have the whitelist addon and that is also working as intended.
