    I need to turn wifi and an app on when entering home and turn both off when leaving.
    Will Locale do this and if so, how would I set it up?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Locale can do the wifi thing, but I'm not sure about starting the app.

    Just install it and try for yourself :) It's an incredibly clever app.

    Yes you can. You do it by setting the default configurations.

    OK, have the default condition as WiFi off and use location to turn it on when I get home. I have installed the shortcut app to turn the app (SipAgent) on when I get home but there is no way to turn it off when I leave?

    You'll probably have to do that manually. You've probably noticed that apps don't really have an "exit and close" function. It's because they always stay open and in memory until something else comes along and replaces that dormant app.

    I may be wrong though!

    No, think you are right there but I need to switch the app off as its a battery hog at the moment.
    Will have a look at Tasker and see if that can do the job.

    Yeah, look for some Task Manager plugins for Locale.
