ear Application Launch

Posted in ear, G1, positioning by Markus Klems on February 16, 2009

Today we launched ear version 0.1 (Beta) for Google’s G1 phone. After extensive testing, we uploaded the apk package to the Android Market. ear is available for free in the “Tools” category of Android Market.

In the current version the Android mobile phone application ear enables users to:

  • create ringtone and notifications profiles
  • view the active profile in the taskbar, and
  • easily switch profiles

Future versions of ear will include location-awareness both outdoor and indoor. Knowing a user’s geographic location, ear automatically switches the ring tone profile. Other information, such as time and caller, can also be used to define profile activation rules. E.g. ear automatically turns the mobile phone to silent mode as soon as the user walks into a pre-defined silent area, such as a library building or conference room.

Currently supported languages are: English, German, Italian, and French
