Phone Buddy (formerly known as Meeting Buddy) is an Accelerometer, G-Sensor, Light Sensor based productivity tool for HTC Touch Diamond and Touch Pro.
Here are a few cool things that the software does:
Tilt Control: The biggest featuer added to Phone Buddy compared to Meeting Buddy is Tilt Control. When enabled it will go forward/backward depending on the screen you are on when you tilt your phone left or right.
Flip phone to vibrate: Puts your phone into vibrate mode when you put your HTC Diamond face down, and will set it back to normal ringer when you put it face-up. It uses HTC Diamond’s built in accelerometer/G-Sensor for this.
If you check ‘Use Outlook Integration’, Phone buddy will put your phone into vibrate mode only if it sees that you are in a meeting (It does this by checking your phone’s outlook calendar)
If you use ‘Outlook Integration’ another settings becomes available to you called ‘Pocket Sensor’, if you check this, Phone Buddy will put your phone into vibrate mode, if it senses darkness (i.e your phone is probably in your pocket). It uses HTC Diamond’s light sensor for this.
Phone Buddy also has an option which allows you to lock/unlock the phone automatically using ambient light. So, if it is dark it will lock the phone’s keyboard. (So you don’t accidentally dial someone when your phone is in your pocket). It will unlock the keyboard as soon as you take it out of your pocket. You can also tell Phone buddy to activate this feature between certain hours of the day. eg. between 7 Am and 5 Pm.
Another option that it gives you is to lock/unlock the phone when you shake your phone. Added the option to control Shake sensitivity too.
‘Auto unlock on Incoming call’ is very obvious. If your phone’s keyboard is locked and Phone Buddy detects an incoming call, it will unlock the keyboard or you, so you don’t have to fumble around.
‘Auto unlock when Stylus removed’ unlocks your phone as soon as you take out the Stylus.
