    Smart Connect

    Use the Smart Connect application to set what happens in your device when you connect or disconnect an accessory. You can also use Smart Connect to set a specific action or a group of actions to launch on your device at certain times of the day.

    For example, when you connect your headset, you can create an event so that the following actions are launched on your device:
    • Between 7am and 9am, when you commute to work, the "WALKMAN" application starts, and the web browser opens the morning paper. The ring volume is set to vibrate.
    • On the way back from work, the FM radio starts, and a notes app opens showing your shopping list.
