SBSchedule – Setup Profiles & Schedules for iPhone Services Toggling [Jailbreak Apps]

SBSchedule iPhone jailbreak app

If you ‘ve had your iPhone jailbroken for any length of time chances are good that you use the wonderful SBSettings app “ which lets you easily toggle On and Off some of the iPhone ‘s key services.  This is handy for a number of reasons, not least because it is far, far better to use than the clumsy way to deal with services in the built-in Settings app and because toggling off key services when they ‘re not needed can lead to major battery life improvements.

SBSchedule is a new jailbreak app that works with SBSettings and lets you create groups of toggles (and their ON/OFF states) and then schedule times for that group to be in use, or just invoke it quickly via a quick access menu “ as shown in the screencap above.

To me this feels a lot like some of the ‘profiles ‘ apps we used to see on Windows Mobile.  So, for instance, I created a couple of quick test groups (or profiles) for myself:

Meetings “ for this group I set the Phone to off, as well as push alerts (which I ‘ve added to SBSettings via an add-on) “ so that I not only won ‘t have their associated sounds disturbing a meeting, but won ‘t even see a screen alert or any other potential distraction from these.

On The Road: 3G turned on, WiFi turned off “ to hopefully keep my connectivity pretty good while not wasting any battery juice on WiFi when I ‘m not likely to be around any hotspots.

SBSchedule makes it very easy and quick to create these groups.  You simply drag and drop toggles for individual services to the On or Off areas, choose which days you want the group to be available, give it a title, and (if desired) set a scheduled time for the group to be activated.

The scheduling ability of the app is quite nice “ as you could easily setup a ‘Quiet Time ‘ style group for the late hours of the night if you don ‘t want to be disturbed, just as one quick example.

The default quick access trigger for SBSchedule is a quick press and hold on the Sleep / Lock button “ but you can change this by using the LibActivator settings menu.

I ‘ve tested SBSchedule via both its quick access menu and through scheduled activation of a group, and it works quite nicely so far.

SBSettings has been my favorite jailbreak utility for a very long time “ so it ‘s always good to see more apps working with it and making it even more useful.  I think SBschedule fits into this category quite nicely.

SBSchedule is available now in the Cydia store, priced at $2.99.
