iComing 1.2



no new functions but only improvement of firmware 3.0 compatibility…


the main issue from my test was that Call and Ring function (made with a call to safari, with url tel://) not work with 3.0 if the screen is off -)


Now this function work but iComing use a low level modem function, so the call will be recorded in the history as unknow number, but i thinks this is not a big issue…


best regards

    i try to test this very usefull and interessting App – for exp. to swich on/off WIFI – but something i don’t really understand how to configure and how the App is reacting. Is there any description what with button is doing? For example “Auto restart”.

    I tried with 2 targets office and “at home”. If i am not at this 2 places wifi should be off. if i am in office the screen “your position” shows me distance 6,5 kilometes distance, but it should be 0 or around 300 meters cause i am in “office”…

    can you explain me whats going wrong: 3G 16 GB jailbreak, sbssettings, no unlock (cause its open)

    kind regards

    Hello Richard,
    there isnt a complete reference, but if you read the post from iComing 0.1 to iComing 1.0 found an explain of every function… anyway ‘auto restart’ mean that reached all target iComing go to sleep but tomorrow will restart automatically to monitor your target
    Show 6.5 km when you have at office may be correct because when the target is reached (office) it is no more monitored, the distance reported is about the next target; remember too that inside homethe gps is not available and the position is take from gsm cells, so may be you have not signal and 6.5 is the distance of your actual cell :)

    Can u reduce the distance lest that 1 miles, since my home is very near to my office, i cannot sense the difference.. can u give the range from zero for exact GPS match, and then in feets like 10,50,100ft and on with miles or km… and as others said, it will be helpful if there is something to explain all of its buttons like a help or ? mark, reading thru this post can’t be done on the go with the app…

    Thanks for the great app!!!! I always wanted something like this…

    thanks Dee; for the distance you can use fractions of kilometer, .100 for 100 meters or .01 for 10 meters but not 0, and remember that gps has a tollerance in the precision, i suggest to use not less than 50 meters, .05
    I know that there is not a good document for all the features other than various post but i havent many free time in this period… anyway if somebody want write one html that adjust variuos posts in an organic document i will happy to add it into iComing

    Can anybody confirm if this works with “Location” turned off in SBSettings? It seems to work when this is turned on but when switched off nothing happens.
    The package desciption says it is able to use WiFi Info and GSM Cells…

    hi Sebastian, i think that the location switch stop all location services, GSM based too.. in case of my 2g, with no gps, it work fine using GSM cells
    if you dont want drain the battery fir gps, can use the feature to check the position only every x minutes… less precision, but you have less precision using GSM too

    Ok thanks!
    Another question, i wanted to use icoming like this:
    at Home 3g off, WLAN on
    on my way to work, back, and travelling 3g on and Wlan off
    and at work again 3g off and WLAN on
    i tried using two Coming and 2 leaving locations but that didnt seem to work, am i using the wrong Approach?
    Also on my 3gs WLAN on/off is Not Working, could that be a 3.1 compatibility issue?

    Great app! However, I also have problem with turning on/off WiFi. it does not seem to switch. Can you investigate it? I’m running FW 3.1.2 BTW.

    Hi, i know the issue :( . If you read the post of iComing and fw 3.0 there are described all feature the stop to work with new fw. I have contacted bigboss because i use thr library of sbsetting, but he say that now some toggle work only from SB addon
    i was using the toggle to switch on and off wifi leaving and comi g house :)
    i have not found yet how disable wifi from a non sbringboard add on, but just i have time i will add this service to the my addon that add the icons in the status bar (its is already a mobilesubstrate addon)

    Very Good App!!… i’ve an hint: open/close an app (or more) into the “action lists” (like skype, im+ ..)

    Continue your development… it’s a very cool app!!

    Congratulations for the app!!! i was searching for an app similar to Commmgrpro for Windows Mobile… (the graphis is made by me) and finally i’ve found iComing :D

    I’ve two hints for you:

    1) The today reached option, very useful… but if i want to re-enable it is laborious…. a TRUE – FALSE – IGNORE switch would be OK

    2) Consider the chance to open/close an app as action

    And some questions…

    - As i’ve read, the wifi shouldn’t work also if i have SBSettings installed??
    – I don’t see the Text on the icon (tom, hour…), but see the icoming state through the icon in the upper statusbar… it’s normal???
    - If i disable “Location” from SBSettings, iComing use the CELLS ID ??

    hi, thanks.. i had try in the past but with 3.0 that function is gone broked; i will add back in the todo list, but in this period im too busy with work and cannot do much :(

    October 25th, 2009

    1) i will think about that… but to re-enable the target should be enough from the main view touch NOW for the target.. if there inst a bug it enable the target also is previously reached in the day
    2) since 3.0 many routine now not work.. i had write a routine that using the erika sadun util was able to do it, but now to work
    3) wifi: this switch use the library of sbsettings; with 3.0 was all ok, but with new firmware the new routine used by the toggle work only if laucnhed by a springboard addon, so calling from iComing dont work, thanks apple -( i have in the todo to try iComing status bar as service that accept request from iComing and use sbsetting toggle; icoming status bar is an springboard addon so should work
    4) since fw 3.0 the ‘hidden’ function used to set the icon badge from a process are all changed by apple, we havent found yet a new method; for the momentthe olny chance to check the status of iComing is the status bar
    5) i think the location stop all type of location services, also from gsm cell; i have only an old 2g so is not a problem;for user with 3g and gps, that is much battery drain, i have add the function to check the position only every x minutes: in this case the gps is turned on only every x minutes and will stay on only when target is less then x kilometers as setted in the setup

    Thanks for the reply… the “last” doubt has been explained by you:

    So the “NOW” button sign the Location “not reached”… i was thinking that it copy the coordinates to add to the location…. so which differences are between “NOW” and “ON” ?

    Grazie 10000, credevo che il pulsante “NOW” serviva a correggere le coordinate del “target” con quelle attuali…

    Ma allora che differenza passa tra “NOW” ed “ON” ??

    Feature request:
    Is it possible to add in an action that would allow web developers to create location pages.

    For example an action that kicks off for a target that fetches a web page. It doesn’t, (and really shouldn’t), fire up Safari. Just do a simple web fetch of a URL. Something along the lines of GET http://myweb.com/url.html?lat=%u&long=%u
    Or a POST, or whatever.

    I’d like to be able to log and store my movements around and about, and this’d be a good way of tracking and storing.

    Alternatively, it’d be good to be able to store up movements and send in a batch update, or if I move out of a certain target zone, start sending more updates more frequently.

    You could get to the stage where one target zone, triggers a change in iComing, which alters it’s behaviour.

    you can do it with existing twitter function, using a dedicate user if using twitter also to twit :)
    you can see the result here http://www.occasionics.com/iw2bsq/, ‘where i am’ submenu, then click refresh (alice_anto is the twitter account) or check with twitter all the message
    let me know if it can be useful for you

    Great App; however battery life is a little bit of a problem as the current thing I am struggling with is that I set a time for me to leave work (4pm to 8 pm) and I set a distance of 5 km this means that iComing will be checking my location constantly between those times. I don’t dare change the global setting “Rest to always when target is less then km” (which is set to 5 km) as it will affect other targets I have setup – I find that I need to set my “leave work” profile to 6 km which then over-laps my “arrive home” profile as I live 9km from home. The short of this is that it would be benificial that I could keep the GPS from going into “always” and set an interval of shorter than “Check position every”.

    Also, I have an exchange account and Mobile Me; is it possible to have iComing switch off (or on) my exchange mail account based on a target?

    Is version 4 the most recent, since it says in the “about” info of that version that it is actually version 1, while version 1.2 says 1.2 also in the “about” info. I’m on 5.1.1 and 4S
