  It's good to know that Phone Schedule can not only switch WiFi, brightness and ringer modes for you, but also improve your health! :)

First month download statistics.

April has come, which means it's time to review first month download statistics of Phone Schedule. I've uploaded it to Google Play late night March 10th. And during the week after that I've submitted it to some alternative app markets, most of which have approved Phone Schedule by now. Most, but not all, which I'm going to elaborate on a little bit later. OK, so the stats! Data is as of yesterday, April 2, 2012. The number represents total number of downloads. If a marketplace shows active downloads as well, i put this number in brackets.

Google Play 3002 total (1650 active)
Slideme.org 436
apps.opera.com / handster.com     133
dev.appia.com / handango.com 114
getjar.com 103
mobango.com 75
esdn.ws 42
handheld.softpedia.com 18
androidpit.com 17(11)
appoke.com 2
aproov.com 1
soc.io 0
samsungapps.com 0
mobihand.com Can't find number of downloads
softonic.com Pending review
developer.verizon.com pending review

So as you can see, these last two are still pending review, even though i uploaded them more than three weeks ago. Phone Schedule's status hasn't seen any updates in Verizon's app store for exactly three weeks, i'm not sure if it is actually supposed to take so much time. But anyways, this is certainly no reason to get upset :) Especially since several tech blogs have written about Phone Schedule, which was a total surprise for me. A pleasant one, of course. These articles have brought the vast majority of downloads on Google Play, for which i would like to thank you guys!

Make it bright and hear some music ;)

I have just uploaded Phone Schedule 1.2.1 to Google Play and will shortly upload it to alternative android markets. The update should shortly become available to devices out there. What is new in this version:
  • new BLUETOOTH permission, which is required to switch Bluetooth on several Samsung phone models, including Samsung Galaxy S 2. This caused a lot of crashes in recent days, sorry about that.
  • several crash situations fixed and overall improved crash handling
  • NEW! Screen Brightness! (Auto, Full, Custom)
  • NEW! Launch an app! - A tool with a great potential, i have very high hopes for it. Say you want to wake up no to the annoying sound of your built-in alarm, but to your favorite internet radio station. So what you do is select a desired internet radio app from the list(you need to first have it installed on your phone) and that's it! App will automatically launch at a given time.
Please note:
You must realize, however, that launching an app does not guarantee that that app will do what you expect it to do. Once launched, it may not do anything at all. If you want your music app to start playing music, make sure it automatically starts playing music when started. Some apps have this option in their settings, some don't have it at all.
One thing i can say is, i've tried this with Pandora and it works great! Now I wake up to music =)

UPDATE: I've just updated Phone Schedule to 1.2.2, because sorting of the app list would sometimes cause the device to freeze. Moved all the resource-consuming computation in the background thread.
