Cute Android: Cute Android Apps for Users: Llama – Location Profiles
Llama is a Location Aware Mobile Application.
Tired of your phone going off in the middle of the night? Annoying your colleagues by having your phone blast out your ringtone at work? You need Llama!
***EMAIL ME if you have any problems. If you post a comment, I cannot help***
It uses phone masts to determine your location, so that you can change your ringer, vibrate and ringtones depending on where you are as well as the time of day. Llama provides you with sound profiles so you can quickly switch between quiet, loud, silent and normal sound settings.
-You can silence your phone at work.
-Turn your Bluetooth on ready to connect your Bluetooth headset for your morning run
-Make your phone quiet when it’s late at night and you haven’t gone out
It can also run and kill applications, turn your WiFi, Bluetooth, screen brightness, sync and APN mobile data (GSM only) on and off. You can also place home screen shortcuts to the above actions on your home screen.
NOTE: Since GPS is not used, the location tracking is limited to the number of phone masts in your area. This will work best if you live in a populated area. If your home and work are covered by the same phone masts, you can try using the experimental Wifi-based location tracking. If that still doesn’t work, you can remove the enter/exit conditions to make time-based profiles.
Guys! I can’t reply to your comments! Please email me about any questions, bugs and suggestions! Thanks!
Commenter ‘Rich’ is wrong. This app does not even have internet permissions. I’d be interested to know what spam he reckons he received
Samsung Galaxy S users with 2.2.1: Your phone may have a bug that prevents applications from saving their settings if you uninstall then reinstall an app:
If you vote 1 star, please say why, otherwise I can’t fix it.
Yes it can control your wifi! Create or modify an event to do so
If it Force Closes, please email me the /sdcard/Llama/LlamaLog.txt.
PERMISSIONS: It needs to read your calendar for any calendar conditions you set up. It needs to know your accounts so it can run an account sync if your events say so.
It DOES NOT have internet permission so this data isn’t going anywhere anyway. I don’t care what you are doing next month.

BIG UPDATE! If you’re going to post unhelpful 1 star comments about bugs then I suggest you DON’T INSTALL IT YET. I do this for fun. If you post 1 star comments, I get bored. Anyways…

-Location using Android’s built-in location stuff (requires separate Map addon for Llama for internet permissions)
