    Hi all,

    Is it just me or does anyone else wish we had an app for profiles? What I mean about profiles is something that will allow me to set my phone to a Home profile where I would have WIFI on, phone data off, Bluetooth off, locations off, etc. or to Car where I would have Bluetooth on, WIFI off, locations on, phone data on, etc.

    The older Nokia (pre WP7) had profiles for volume of ringtones and stuff like that but I'm thinking something with a bit more control.

    Maybe WP8 won't allow such controls from an app?

    NFC Tags in the future will most likely solve this. You could possibly set a tag to do it now but I am unsure.

    Cheers for the info, been reading up on NFC tags this weekend. Just need to confirm the right ones now for windows phone 8, I think I would be looking at the 1k ones for what I'm looking to do.
