Have used Locale off-and-on for many years and has generally been pretty good, with the exception of using excessive battery at times. On my Google Pixel the battery usage has been minimal - very nice! My only issue however is that my "At Work" situation doesn't recognize when I've left work or my "Asleep" situation doesn't appear to end until I wake the phone an "use" it some. It could be that if I left it alone it would eventually recognize I've left work or that my asleep interval has elapsed, but I've not been that patient as of yet. I've excluded Locale from the battery optimizations but I still no joy. The "Face down" situation seem to get recognized when the phone is flipped faced-down/up. Given how minimal my battery has been impacted under Android 7.1.2, I won't ding it too much. Overall I'm satisfied and would recommend.
Got an Samsung S8, doesn't do anything. Worked on Samsung S7 no problem. Set up "situation" that is supposed to open app, fairly simple, plug in USB charger, open alarm clock. Update: figured out why it wasn't working, a plugin that let's me specify the charging source (USB, wireless, etc) was not working. When I switched to the general "charging" condition the situation works. The alarm clock starts when I am charging from any source.
Simply doesn't work any longer. Spent ages with dev trying to get geolication working, it just doesn't ever recognise work or home no matter what I tried, despite Google matching my location accurately on a daily basis.
Great location based app. Would be nice if it could control Android Wear... Specifically Theatre/Cinema mode, so I can have my watch respond to my cinema locations.
Awesome way to manage your phones settings automatically. Had some problems, but seems stable now.
It no longer is working correctly with my volume settings. Pretty disappointed.
- Fixed app launch on Samsung devices running Android 5.1
- Improved reliability for toggling Locale's service, tapping Locale's notifcation, and triggering plug-in settings
