"Enabled" vs. "OFF/ON" in "Auto-Upload Camera Roll" options

Bug #1112630 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu One iOS Client

Bug Description

1. Tap "Settings".

What you see:

    Auto-Upload Camera Roll
    | Enabled ............ (_)_OFF_) |
    | Wifi-Only .......... (_ON__(_) |
    | Nightstand Mode .... (_)_OFF_) |
    | Disables sleep while uploading |
    | . if the device is charging .. |

The word "Enable" usually indicates a design that could be more direct. This is even more true on iOS, where binary toggles already use the words "OFF" and "ON". Turning on something labelled "Enabled" feels a little Rube-Goldbergian.

There's a clue how to improve this in the next switch: "Wifi-Only" applies only when "Enabled" is on. So those two switches represent not four possible states, but three. Voila:

    Auto-upload Camera Roll
    | Always ..................... / |
    | When using wi-fi ............. |
    | Never ........................ |

This requires separating out the Nightstand Mode into its own grouped table, but you can take that opportunity to describe it instead of making me learn a new term:

    When uploading while charging
    | Keep iPhone awake .. (_)_OFF_) |
