    I am happy to announce the first release of Chronos. Chronos is an app the have your phone change settings automatically based on various triggers like time of day, location, dock state, etc. You can have it change almost every setting. It includes a couple samples to get you started.

    The idea here is that, for example, you can have your phone go into vibrate mode automatically when you are at work, or go dim and silent at the movie theater, or launch Maps when you insert it into the car dock, or never time out when charging, but time out after 2 minutes when running on battery, and so on and so on.

    Please give the Lite version a try. Let me know if you find any bugs. I've tested with my Droid and the emulator, but it would be great to get feedback on more real world devices.

    The full version is $0.99, and Chronos Lite, which is limited to 2 profiles, is free. Both are in the Market.

    Chronos Full:

    Chronos Lite:

    Right now, you can have a profile (collection of settings and triggers) fire off of any combination of the following triggers:

    Time Of Day
    Power State
    Wired Headset State
    Dock State

    More will come in the future, of course. The app will change any combination of the following settings:

    Airplane Mode
    Screen Timeout
    Ringer Volume
    Ringer Mode
    Notify Mode
    Media Volume
    Alarm Ringtone
    Alarm Volume
    Call Volume
    Call Ringtone
    Notify Ringtone
    Unlock Pattern
    Haptic Feedback
    Launch Application

    More to come as I continue to work on development. Again, please let me know if you find any bugs or have any suggestions for improvement!
