    So, I was using Locale for the past few days and it was working fine. Silly me, I added defaults to it so I can have the ringer at high volume when I'm not at work. Well, once I added the defaults, it no longer uses my "Work" profile. I know it's not a GPS issue, because I have it set based on time. I've checked and double checked the settings, and I cannot figure out why it is keeping me in default mode while I'm right in the middle of my work schedule.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    While this is definitely a cool app, I found it unreliable and late in enacting the location rules. Every time I upgraded the app, the settings disappeared. Ugh...I got tired of configuring this app so I ditched it

    I have seen the same thing happen and apparently it is related to setting the "defaults". I removed them and it is now working again. Hopefully there will be a fix soon. Until then do not set defaults. besides that small flaw, it works great and I love the functionality of the app.

    I haven't actually set mine up yet so I can't speak from experience, but I read that the location based profiles can take up to 10 minutes to activate in order to minimize impact on battery life. If it's constantly checking your location that would be pretty taxing for the battery.

    On a somewhat related note, anybody try using FoxyRing yet? I downloaded it today but haven't set it up. Same concept as Locale, using location and time based presets, but it will also do it based on ambient noise. So if you're at work and its quiet it will turn the volume on the ringer down and then max it out if you're in a bar with lots of people around. Seems pretty cool.
