Locale

Locale


Judge Robert Restaino jailed 46 people when a mobile phone rang in his courtroom and no one admitted responsibility. So we invented Locale®!

Locale's advanced artificial intelligence manages settings automatically. For example: arrive at work and instantly your ringer silences, your wallpaper snaps to that scenic Caribbean photo, and Wi-Fi switches on. With Locale, never worry about your ringer going off accidentally again. Once you experience Locale's power and convenience, you'll never want to be without it. Set it and forget it!


LOCATION
Locale leverages patent pending artificial intelligence geofencing algorithms for instant location detection.

Configuring is simple—it just works! To create a geofence location, drag and drop the pin on the map, resize the radius using your finger, and Locale does the rest.

The best part? No battery drain. Locale's sophisticated sensor fusion technology combines accelerometer, cell, Wi-Fi, GPS, and other signals for optimal accuracy, performance, and battery life. During our extensive testing across dozens of popular Android devices, we found Locale's typical battery impact too small to even measure.


PLUG-INS
Locale manages more than your ringer. Along with built-in conditions (Battery, Calendar (Android 4.0+), Caller, Location, Orientation, Time) and built-in settings (Bluetooth, Display Brightness, Display Timeout, Ringtone, Volume, Media Volume, Shortcut, Wallpaper, Wi-Fi), Locale expands with an advanced plug-in architecture. Over 500 plug-ins for Locale exist on Google Play.


SUPPORT
With Locale, you get what you pay for: Locale is fast, accurate, reliable, secure, and battle tested. We stand behind our app 100%. Have a question? Just ask!

Locale is tested and fully compatible with all of the latest Android versions (including Android 4.4 KitKat) and devices (including the Nexus 5, Galaxy S 4, and HTC One).


BUZZ
Locale won the grand prize of Google's Android Developer Challenge, because it is one of the coolest apps for Android and showcases what the Android platform can really do. This is what people are saying:

"I'm really taken with Locale. [...] The idea that I have an intelligent phone that configures itself depending on where I am is very powerful."
- Fred Wilson, principal of Union Square Ventures

"Locale has a lot going for it. It's easy to use, but has some advanced functionality under the hood. We have found the battery usage to be absolutely amazing. [...] We feel the level of polish and overall quality are more than commensurate with the asking price."

Love it! BUT! Needs more user friendly backup. Dev continues to insist it works, many users clearly see that it does not. Dev seems uninterested in user feedback While I LOVE this app, this developer seems to habitually and defensively dismiss feedback as user error rather than improve upon their design. The backup options in this app are hidden and mysterious - despite dev's insistence it works, backup has NEVER worked on any phone i have had, rooted or no. Dev is just wrong. Rather than address real issues (backups, rooted phone, etc), I was sent a dismissive link to help page. Missed opportunities for improvement & evolution using customer feedback...

Locale has become a shadow of its former self. Locale used to be on every list of must-have apps- for good reason. But with no update in 9 months and one badly needed, it seems the developer has lost interest in this former gem. Since the latest update (Nov. 2014), screen brightness and volume control have become erratic, disruptive, and inconsistent. Now just a source of frustration, at its peak Locale was unfailingly reliable, the best of the best. I'd be willing to pay to see it become that again. All it needs is a little time, love, and effort.
