    Would be nice if you can set your phone to not vibrate when you are at home (makes terrible noise when vibrates on a wooden table, it scares the hell out of me) or simply when it's out of the pocket (light)

    So i guess, it will need to base that on either a location or even the more universal method when there is light in the light sensor, its supposed to be out of the pocket so vibration won't be necessary.

    Unfortunately i was unable to find an app doing those things, you?

    Tasker can handle turning vibration on and off based on whether you are home or not. It can also make changes based on the light level, but the light level isn't monitored while the display is off.

    I imagine that any app constantly monitoring the light level would drain the battery pretty quickly.

    thanks will try it :)


    p.s.
    can someone confirm if the light sensor is a big energy consumer?
