SwiP - Switch profiles intelligently

**ATTENTION!**
**THE APPLICATION CURRENTLY DOES NOT WORK ON TABLETS!**

SwiP is an intelligent profile app for Android.
It's meant to be an open source alternative to well-known apps like LLama and Trigger (though in a much smaller scale at the moment), which still offers some unique features.


PROFILES
SwiP allows you to create, manage and apply profiles which can contain the following settings:

Sound:
- Ringer Mode
- Ringtone- & Notification Volume
- Media Volume
- Alarm Volume

Connectivity:
- GPS
- Mobile Data
- WiFi
- Bluetooth

Display:
- Automatic Brightness
- Brightness
- Display Time Out

There are also some features which are unfortunately only available for rooted phones like NFC, Airplane Mode and Lockscreen.


TRIGGERS
Furthermore the app offers trigger-management. A trigger basically defines a rule for the automatic application of selected profiles.
The user is able to create said triggers and to use them for his daily workflow.
A trigger can contain the following rules:

- Location (Geofence)
- Time (Exact time or time range)
- Battery State
- Battery Level (Exact level or level range)
- Headphone State

These rules can be freely combined (e.g. at a certain location AND a certain time).


The app is currently in a beta stage (all important features are implemented and should basically work, but are not tested on a wide range of devices).

Perfect! I was using several other apps before this to automatically change bt, wifi and ringer profiles but they were still lacking something. Then I found this app and it's exactly what I need! Simple but does exactly what I want! Nice job!

Hitendra Modi

2g or 3g selection missing It will be great if this app is also having option to choose between 2 g and 3g. Second is to enable / disable sync should also be there.

Mark Ford

I would definitely upvote and donate if I could trigger a URL from NFC (with or without browser UI). Also, want to donate by bitcoin, NXT etc

Jaime Rodriguez

No LTE support It would be useful for me if I could turn LTE on and off. The rest is great!

Jack B

Great ui - Easy to use Needs on/off toggles for profiles. Also need separate settings for notifications and systems sounds. Location not working on S5.

ina sherif

Valuable scheduler I prefer open source apps. This does almost everything I need with the exception of timers within scheduled profiles and a data sync switch

Jaroslav Urik

Great app, lots of options Plenty of options, simple setting, but currently not working correctly (wifi keeps turning on, data also) on Sony Xp M, CM12 (Android 5.0.2).

Ting Yik Saw

Everything else is good, except turning on/off data Great job! I've set up a few profiles with everything else working including the schedule. But it is not able to turn on/off the data plan.. even installing as system app is not working. I'm using rooted android L on N5.

Alexander Selzer

5 stars for open-source! works well.

Jan Lubach

Useless Doesn't seem to save location and time. Every time I save. It says ignored. Can do anything with it. Uninstalled

Shaun Wallace

Great App Awesome idea but the location trigger does not work 100% for me, occssionally the profile never changes when in the geo fenced location unless front end application for SWIP open. Sometimes gets location wrong and switches between default and triggered item and back frequently. Unfortunately override does not persist and it switches back on manual selection please set priority high and allow user to choose time to switch back on auto. Will persist with application in the hope of some updates. ?

Socol Alexandru

I have a Home profile triggered by location. It is supposed to turn on wifi and off mobile data. The location trigger works fine, wifi comes on but mobile data stays on too. Why is not going off?

Chris Wagner

Excellence No fuss, no muss, it works .Requires some thought. Helps manage Moto G get more battery between charges.While beta, it simply gets the job done. Back and forth toggling issues on boot and device wake. Thanks 42bits.

Vinayak Bhat

Decent and simple. Was disappointed about End time of Trigger. After End time, I expect it to switch back to default mode but it doesn't ;Just remains in that profile

Tuong Hy Nguyen

There should be icons on the status bar... FortyTwoBits: I mean the icons that we can change. Eg: HOME icon for HOME PROFILE... Now I have to use Tasker to built an Auto Profile for myself. It's not too difficult... :)

nitish sharma

Bug removed! The bug causing force stop has been removed. Thanks a lot! The app is again back to being awesome

Steven Chin

Pretty cool app Its not perfect yet, but it achieved my expectations with a few workarounds. The forthcoming tutorial and app updates will improve the experience for users.

aced cibi

Great! SwiP is simple and just nice. I will give full star when there is backup restore function. Keep up dev! ??

Isabelle Chan

Nice I set a trigger with priority 0 and everything ignored. But it always takes over the other triggers with high priority such as home or work.

Jerry Heiselman

Need to add NFC as a trigger

Shuai Xie

Location works well location now works. Good work.

Ganesh Kantu

Good update - triggers need unfulfilled condition This last update fixed many things. But needs a unfulfilled trigger - for eg, lets say a trigger applies a profile when certain conditions meet, it should apply another profile when the conditions don't meet. Would work well when ringer is set to vibrate at work and needs to be normal everywhere else.

CiCi Hoang

Stays stuck on 1 triggered profile Once the work profile was time-triggered, it would stay stuck on that until I manually switched to the home profile. I set my work profile to turn off BT and change the ringtone to vibrate. Because it never auto-switched off the work profile, I wouldn't hear my phone go off while driving home and my phone wouldn't connect to my car's BT, so I missed a number of important phone calls until I decided the 'convenience' of this app couldn't compensate for the aggravation it caused. Uninstalled!

Jah-El Van Philips

Good app Great idea, and as far as I can tell, no bugs though there should be a restore settings option so that the app will automatically put your settings the way they were before

Abhishek Jain

Geofence Problem I want to ask to use geofence function the phone should be rooted or not??

Cyril Gips

Nice app, but I can't get the location triggers to work properly. I set a location trigger for "home", which works fine. I set another trigger for "not home" with lower priority and all trigger items ignored. Somehow the ignored location in this trigger gets overwritten with my home location coordinates at some point. Because of this my phone stays on the "home" trigger even when I leave home. Is this something you hear more often or am I doing something wrong? (Nexus 5 btw)

abdulatif Zeno

Need more developments The idea of app is good, but it has a very unexpected maner when it is running. Like : The case of overlap triggers. I can not know what is the active trigger now. I can not determine what is the relation between criteria with the same trigger is it (and) or (or). No user guide for setting triggers ....especially when we need to setup triggers for deferent location with the same start and end times. It is good to add the days of the week to the triggers

Alan Bell

Very promising app I dig the priority setting, It allows for some clever profile switching. I'm also a big fan of the screen timeout setting (though I would love an unlimited option). Unfortunately, still no location triggers for me. Galaxy S3, Android 4.3, SwiP 0.2.3, Root Enabled, System App. After working with the developer (awesome customer service!) We got the Locations working. Installing as a system app makes updating buggy. Turning off the systems app setting, updating and then turning it back on fixed everything. Upped the rating to 5 stars for both the features and the excellent customer service. If i could I'd give it 6

Anna Raquel Serra

Very useful, great start! Location trigger is working correctly on new version. UI is very basic, but main functionality works well. Also good to know that the developers are paying attention to comments and update frequently :)

Phonpatchara Chochai

good but still have a room to improve can you add a wifi as trigger?

Jonathan Stoltman

Lock screen Would love if this app disabled lock screen based in WiFi :)

Paryas Bhatia

Not good Profiles don't apply automatically instead when I open the app the profile is than activated.

Sourangshu Sengupta

A problem with location trigger.. The problem with location trigger is that the app triggers the profile only if I launch the app myself. It doesn't seem to fire up on its own. Otherwise the location trigger seems fine. Another feature that could be added in a future release: changing the profile as I exit a location, instead of entering it. Another thing that lacks description is the priority levels. It doesn't say whether 0 or 99 is the highest priority. Otherwise the app is fantastic, even in the beta stage.

Mazlan Malik

Amazing. You could add an address search option for location triggers.

Humberto Neto

1 major flaw, perfect otherwise I don't know why, when I'm setting a trigger, it won't let me select a location radius.. I select and select OK and it still says location ignored.. Fix this or tell me the solution and I will change my rating. Regards. (Nexus 5 here Btw!)

hareth shbeta

Good but not great Usefull .. but I like to do my things and setting by hands ..

Ayush Pandia

Good Really looking forward for the option to select weekdays to trigger a profile!

Ken Forgie

Hmmm, interesting Great idea but... Only by reading other reviews did I learn about the long press on the map to set the geo fence, which still showed as not set when saved. Somebody knows how this works. Maybe that person could write a brief tutorial on how to setup some basic settings. Allowing users to add their own findings to this would be very helpful (wiki, forum? ). I hope to see further development on this app.

Bernhard Blaha

Works perfectly The indie alternative to llama!

Kweku Q

Not good at all Very minimal options, for this day and age... This is very bad.

Manoj Tuteja

Nice automation It's very handy, somehow profile did not switch automatically from night to default. During night I have set it up as Wi-Fi / data off. Also Wi-Fi does gets off, but data never gets off. Using Android lollipop. Pls suggest?

Cory McGarvey

Interesting Just downloaded the app. Trying to set up the triggers and the location triggers will not work on my S3. Just shows location ignored. Not gonna uninstall and gonna keep using as it. I love Beta testing apps. Will rerate after more use. Would be cool if you could link triggers to calendar appointments not everyone works at the same time or in the same place everyday it would be very useful.

Andrew Kim

Great start - only really needs whitelist for my use I've been searching for the perfect SIMPLE location/time-based profile switcher for things like ringer volume, wifi and screen brightness. This *almost* fits the bill. The one thing I need in an app like this is a whitelist feature for SMS/phone calls (for when wife or daughter's daycare contacts me). A bonus would be the ability to run *any* app at a given trigger.
