    Anybody know of widget to turn off just Exchange Active Sync? I want to be able to turn it off while I'm at work, since I am at my computer all day and don't need it then.

    It seems odd to me to add a manual process of disabling and then re-enabling sync. Why not let it do its thing and just modify your notifications? There are currently a number of apps for managing notifications.

    The apps I have tried for managing notifications suck. I haven't found one, for instance, that will let me create a profile that turns on notifications for some email accounts (e.g., gmail) but off for others (e.g., exchange).

    Do you have a recommendation?

    I also need to find a way to do this. When I'm at work I'm on the secured company wireless and can access the exchange server. When I'm off-site, I can't. This means sync is constantly failing and retrying, popping up a notice and using up battery needlessly.

    I don't understand why the app itself doesn't provide a way to control syncing! Offline mode?
