#PMChallenge - Plus Modes

    OceaneSxm, Feb 16, 2019 :
    For many of us our smartphones have become a big part of our lives. We carry them around for most of the day, use them as personal assistants, helpful tools, gaming consoles, professional squirrel recording devices, etc.
    Even thought our phones are always with us, we aren't always in the same environment.
    What if our phones could adapt to every segment of our day only with the push of a button or just a quick gesture? That is what I would like to bring to Oxygen OS !

    Who are the users?

    Every smartphone owner could find a use for this feature.
    Old and new device should be able to support Plus Mode.
    Also, lazy users, like myself, will find it even more beneficial !

    What is the proposed function?

    Plus Mode will allow users to create modes where they can personalize every aspect of their phone and they will be able to switch in between modes easily and quickly.

    In each mode you would be able to personalize several aspects of your phone such as :
    • Sound
    - Ring, Media and Alarm : manage volume and ringtone
    - set Vibration​
    • App Management
    - block the usage of certain apps
    - choose which apps to get notifications from​
    • Display
    - associate icon disposition, Theme and Wallpaper
    - Ambient display settings​
    • Connectivity
    - turn on/off : Wifi, Bluetooth, Data, NFC, Airplane mode​
    • Security (Lock)
    - possibility to add lock to get in and/or out of each mode
    - possibility to add security to modify certain modes​
    • Access (Link)
    - choose the way to access each mode : with gesture, Tile in Status bar, added button to Navigation bar, Alert slider, linked to specific settings (when connected to car bluetooth or home Wi-Fi), NFC tag ​
    • Timer
    - program daily automatic mode switch or delayed with calendar
    • Protect
    - disable payment methods
    - disable delete function

    What is the user value?

    Who said laziness is a bad thing ? This feature would reduce the time spent changing phone settings by making it easier to change in-between modes.
    Also features like « App Management » will help users be more productive and less distracted.
    Putting a timer on each mode will make it a hassle-free experience.

    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?

    Special modes already exist (Gaming Mode, Do not disturb, Airplane Mode, etc.) but they only focus on one aspect.
    Some Applications also let user create profiles however they are often limited or require rooting the phone.
    Having an inbuilt modes feature is safer and would permit more personalization options.

    Mode example :

    • Cupcake when letting a kid play with your phone
    - disable all payment methods
    - disable delete function
    - only allow child friendly apps (you choose the apps)
    - security to get out of this mode
    - blocked sound/notification settings​

    Since this would allow users to create modes for specific situations there are endless possibilities : work, gym, school, party, car, etc.

    Such well explained Idea @OceaneSxm and neatly executed sketches :) All the best.
    Definitely Modes are really useful for many users who want to switch to a different profile in a jiffy.
    Each mode can also have the option to be pinned as notification toggle for quick access when timer is not practical :)

    @YRJ It's time for yours now.. Bring it on ;)
