    Default How to turn off location services at night?

    Hey there to all

    Just wondering if anyone knows of an app similar to the original smart actions that has the ability to turn off data and location services during the night?? Currently in use battery widget fee born, that does everything except for location services.

    I have heard of tasked, but I looked at it once and didn't really like it, if anyone knows of something similar that would be great.

    You could just go into the phone's settings and turn off the location services for Google and what not, but I'm not aware of an app that does everything you're asking for.

    Battery widget reborn will turn my data off every night on a schedule which is nice, I'm looking for something that does the same thing just with the location settings.

    Tasker will let you do this and much more. You can also try Llama, which is similar bit easier to use. I do not know all the functionality for Llama because I used Tasker.

    With the battery on the Maxx, I find that I have not bothered with Tasker yet on this phone, as extending battery life was my main purpose. However, I did have it set up to automatically text people on birthdays and similar events, so I probably should take the time to set it back up...

    I dont get the benefit of this? Not using mobile data anyway when on WIFI. Does it save power? I guess I was under the impression it would not since the radios are on anyway to make/receive phone calls.

    Thanks man for the reply, I read somewhere that you can't turn off location settings without a root, with sucks.

    Yes it does save a few percent overnight. Not ten or anything like it would on a gnex.
