Create Ringer Profiles on Android Like You Did On Older Phones

Though my Android powered HTC One X is better than my old Nokia phone in every aspect, one feature that I miss the most is the ability to quickly change profiles. It used to be very easy to toggle profiles on older Nokia phones. In a meeting or in a hospital, I could activate the respective profile by pressing the power button and selecting from the list.

I was looking for an app that could bring this feature to my Android, and that’s when I discovered Quick Profiles. Quick Profiles is a simple application that allows you to create and switch between different ringer profiles easily.

Quick Profiles on Android

To begin, install Quick Profiles from the Play Store and open the app. Then, create profiles by pressing the menu button and selecting Add profile.

Customize the sound and device settings you want to apply when the profile is activated, and give it an appropriate name. Once configured, save the profile by pressing the back soft key.

To add multiple profiles, simply repeat the process. They will all appear on the app home screen. To switch between profiles, open the app and select the desired profile.

For easier profile switching, the pro version of the application supports widgets. In the basic version, go to the menu, tap on Preferences, and check the “Statusbar shortcut” option. This will pin a shortcut to the Quick Profiles app in your notification drawer, allowing you to easily change profiles whenever desired.

Note: The app does not automatically or time-switch profiles. The app is for manual profile toggling only.

Also, unlike older phones, you can create unlimited profiles using the app. And if you plan to upgrade your phone’s ROM, you can backup and restore all created profiles within seconds.

Overall, it’s an impressive app that every Android user should install for improved ringer and device management on other phones.
