iSleepWell Automatically Switches Into Airplane Mode When Its Placed Face Down

iOS Tweak To Automatically Switch Your iPhone Into Airplane Mode

Developer xvolks is not new to jailbreak and cydia tweaks. His contribution to Corona jailbreak is widely appreciated. There used to be some issue with the jailbreak that disabled iBooks in jailbroken iOS devices. Xvolks patch made iBooks work on iOS deivices. His work on iBooks can be seen here.

cydia tweak iSleepwell for iPhone

iSleepWell is a tweak by Xvolks that has just hit Cydia and brings with it a feature set that attempts to give the user a good night sleep. The application uses a simple method of deactivating all radios, in other words, setting Airplane mode to on through a simple detection routine.

           

iSleepWell is useful to turn airplane mode ON when going to bed (for example) by just putting your iDevice beside you on the screen side. It detects that position and turns off all radios. You can sleep without being disturb by unsolicited calls and you are not bombarded by negative waves. Many parameters can be changed. iOS devices comes built in with a number of hardware sensors that can detect the orientation of the phone, allowing certain things to happen for each state it may be in. iSleepWell uses this hardware capability and turns off all radios when the device is placed screen down on a surface.

Features Of iSleepWell:

Enabled : if ON (default), iSleepWell will detect the sleep position and react as expected. If OFF, it does nearly nothing except waiting to go ON.

Play Sound : when the airplane mode is about to be triggered the device says Airplane mode enabled. This let you put it on the right side to prevent the mode change.
When you take back the device in your hand, the device says Back to normal.
If OFF, no sound is played.

Vibrate : when airplane mode is actually changed, the device vibrates if ON.

Scan interval : iSleepWell polls the accelerometer state each X seconds : 5 and 10 are good choices.

Screen down : by default you have to put the device on the screen to trigger the airplane mode. you can change that behavior by setting this switch to OFF. Useful to test and see the plane too...

Active on sleep mode : when you let your device without using it at all, it goes to suspend state and the applications receive no CPU time from iOS. This switch set to ON awakes to device every 15 minutes to check if the position have changed. So turning your device may not trigger the airplane mode right now if it is in hibernation. This will consume very few battery.
You can set it to OFF if you fear for your battery, but I did not notice significant change.

Disable on manual change : if you set Airplane mode by yourself (when you are aboard a plane ;)), iSleepWell will detect this state and will disable itself until you reenables the radios by yourself.
Setting this to OFF, will let iSleepWell to reenable the radios. It's safer to let this to ON.

Prevent from running : if set to ON, iSleepWell will exit completely and will be unable to do anything. The only ways to relaunch it is to respring or reboot the device after putting this toggle to OFF.


You can get iSleepWell from the Cydia Store for $0.99.
