What is Mode Switcher?

Icon Mode-Switcher.png

Mode Switcher brings profile support to WebOS in the form of 'modes' that cover nearly every available phone setting. These modes can be triggered in my many different ways: placing the phone on a touchstone, time of day, current wifi ssid, GPS location.

Mode Switcher PDF Manual (current to version 0.9.20)



- Added support for blink notification settings.

- Added more screen turn off times.

- Added SSID-based WiFi trigger.

- "Fix" for the startup procedure so its not that annoying when MS is restarted on low memory.

- Fix for screen turn off / always on setting not working on certain situations.

Known Issues

- Network toggle (2G/3G/Automatic) only works for GSM phones (not confirmed yet).

- Currently, dashboard notification is shown when Luna is not fully loaded yet (when mode with popup is valid on start).

- New mode logic with posibility to leave single settings untouched.

- Introduce new mode type (mode modifiers or 'submodes')

- Add 'no charger' option for charger trigger.


- Future triggers: bluetooth / screen state / calendar triggers / headset.

- Fine tune the IM status setting.

- Add email sound settings.

- Fine tune the GPS trigger and add a map UI for location selection.

- Tweak the launchpoint mode launching support.
