Nokia: making smartphones smarter

This has lots of potential: Nokia Situations.

Nokia Situations helps your device tie more into your life. You can manually define situations, like “In a meeting”, “Sleeping”, “Watching TV”, or “Playing with kids” and define how you want the device to act.  With the application running in the background, your device automatically senses the situation you are in and adapts to it according to your preferences.

The clever bit is that it’s not just a case of you selecting a profile; it can use location sensing to work out where you are or its clock to find out what time it is and adjust your phone’s behaviour accordingly.

    Don’t know if this is on iphone, but this has been available on Android for a year.

    Good example of how Nokia have been getting things wrong, that. They’ve had the various bits of that feature for years now, but have never got around to tying them all together and giving them a brand name, putting them all in one app on the same phone, or indeed bothering to tell any of their users about it.

    Not on iPhone that I’m aware, but it should be. Have you tried it? Does it work as advertised? Strikes me as a very worthwhile app.

    Indeed. It’s one of those ideas that you hear and go: of course! Why didn’t I think of that?

    The one advantage of the nokia one is that it’s free, so I’ve not tried the alternatives at £4 and £6. :-)
