General :: How To Make Android App Like Tasker

Apr 18, 2014

How is the app 'Tasker' made? It runs a lot of activity's in the background, and how could you do that with your own app?

I'm making a Virtual Assistant app for Android and I need it to be checking for when the user say's "Okay, Google" or something like that. I need to do something like an Automation app, thats always checking for user input?

General :: Set Tasker To Kill App When WiFi Is Off?

Feb 24, 2012

What I'm trying to do is call-forward my number to Dell VOIP when connected to WiFI, but I want to kill the Dell Voice app when I'm not connected to wifi because it's a battery drainer. So far I have everything setup so that when I'm on WiFi, all calls get routed through WiFi into the Dell Voice app.. what I cannot figure out how to do is kill the app once I disconnect from WiFI. I tried searching but couldn't find an answer.

General :: How To Use Data From Torque In Tasker

Oct 8, 2012

I'm looking for a way to use data from Torque in Tasker.

I want to take data from torque and use it to drive actions in Tasker. Specifically, I'd like to turn the screen on when the engine comes on. Is anyone aware of previous work done in this area that might get me started? Or, would I need to code a Tasker plugin?

I'm aware I could accomplish this using ACC power as the on/off flag, but I'd like to charge the tablet at all times and not just when the car is running.

General :: How To Stop And Start Tasker By Itself Via Bashscript

Sep 16, 2013

I want to stop and start tasker by itself via a bashscript since I see no other way to do so. This works if you put in terminal line by line:

Code:

am force-stop net.dinglisch.android.taskerm
am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n net.dinglisch.android.taskerm/net.dinglisch.android.taskerm.Tasker
killall net.dinglisch.android.taskerm

But now I'm stock

My guess was that it would have to work if i put in a file "kst.sh" and run

Code:

sh ./kst.sh
as root.

But it doesn't work and it seems to ignore the linebreaks in the file.

So here I am, knowing the commands and need to run them with one call. How do I do that?

General :: Can Tasker Determine If Media Is Playing?

Dec 17, 2012

I'd like to have Tasker read incoming texts to me while in the car but pause and playing media first. I have a profile setup to trigger the task and everything work, except the part about pausing the media. As it is now it just read the text over the top of the media and neither are understandable.

I've searched and I can't seem to find a reliable way to determine if media is playing, pause it, then play it again after the text is read. I'm familiar with %MTRACK, but that only works with some players (none of which I use). I typically use PlayerPro and BeyondPod.

General :: Tasker - New Location Setting With KitKat

Nov 22, 2013

Since KitKat has been released Android has a new setting to allow us to use a "battery saving" version of location. I am wondering if I could actually control this setting using Tasker. Example would be only when I open maps do I want to use the "High Accuracy" version. I can not seem to find this in Tasker as there has not been a new version since KitKat. Is there another way of doing this? Script? Etc?

General :: Tasker With Locale Execute Plugin

Sep 8, 2012

It seems there is a lack of support for using tasker.

My aim: When ran, use a tasker task to execute the WiFi for Root users tether start, and if I'm lucky, stop as well in a separate task.

What I have done: I have locale execute plugin. I start an execute task and in configuration I typed

Code:
/data/data/com.googlecode.android.wifi.tether/bin/tether start
as this is what is displayed when enabling tethering in the WiFi tether app itself.

The problem: Though when ran, this exe task does nothing. Wrong code? Wrong plugin in tasker? I want to do this not just for convenience, but also to learn.

See attached for reference.

General :: SGS4 Features On Non-Galaxy Phone - Tasker

May 23, 2013

I have been loving the features of the SGS4 - especially gestures. As a result, I have decided to make scripts to allow non-SGS4 phones, using Tasker, to get the same cool benefits. Some of them are pretty darn cool! Anyhow, Ill be posting the scripts as I get them done. You can then import them into your phone, thus giving you the same great fun. If you want to make your own scripts, you are welcome to post them, and share with everyone else.

General :: LG P920 - Tasker Intermittently Stops Working

May 15, 2012

I had a tasker profile that switches screen lock off when I'm near my local cell tower.

However I found it would often not be active so today made a profile that will unlock my phone if my home wifi connection is found.

However this works one moment then not at all. It says no active profile despite wifi on and connected.

I have it so that if wifi near = home ssid then unlock phone, and wifi always on (never sleeps) but still nothing.

Whatsapp is no problem at all. Solved it with Tasker and Minimalistic Text.

Unfortunately there is no event I can grab to get there.

Is it eventually locked within ics?

General :: Volume Rocker As Wake Button - Tasker

Apr 27, 2013

I have a Nexus 4 and I want to use the volume rocker as the power button to wake the device when it's in sleep. That's because sometimes the volume rocker is more accessable to me than the wake/sleep button. I know the app for this is tasker. Now here is the basic plan:

If the screen is off + VOLR changes (up or down) >> Screen on.

My problem is with the function that checks if the Volume has changed. I tried several things but nothing worked. Is my idea possible without a rooted device?

General :: Send Data From Tasker Using Share Feature

Jun 1, 2012

Trying to make Tasker automatically open and populate Astrid todo's task edit fields the way that so many other apps can using the Share menu. With pretty much any app being able to do this using Share, I figured it wouldn't be too hard to make Tasker do the same, but I'm having trouble finding out how.

I'm using the beta of Tasker so Send Intent replaces the previous two intent actions. The fields available are Action, Category, Mime Type, Extra, Package, Class, and Target. Right now Package is set to com.timsu.astrid and Class to com.todoroo.astrid.activity.TaskEditActivity, which manages to open the task edit screen. That intent is however from the Astrid widget so I don't know if that's even the right thing to use if doing this via the Share ability.

General :: Tasker - Creating Variable For Data Connectivity

Feb 26, 2012

I was wondering how I can create a variable for whether or not my phone has data connectivity. I use google voice for texting (I have a sprint integrated google voice number), but when I go out I turn off my wifi/3g to save battery, and text with my stock SMS app. When I swipe upwards on my launcher (Nova launcher), my texting app launches (google voice). However, I would like that gesture to launch a Tasker task - one that launches Google Voice if my phone has data connectivity, or the stock SMS app if my phone does not have data connectivity. However, Tasker does not have a built in variable for data.

More specifically, I would like this task to do the following (in pseudocode)

if (%data == ON)
Launch Google Voice
else
Launch stock SMS app

General :: BT Headset Microphone Input (Tasker And Autovoice)

Jun 11, 2013

I got a pair of LG HBS-730 to input voice commands to my SG-N7100, but it doesn't seem to work. I'm on a stock CM10.1 and grab the input from Autovoice (a nifty Tasker plugin).

Depending on whether I activate Phone, Media or both in the Bluetooth settings of the headset, the input is either solely grabbed from the phone's microphone or is ignored.

I tried BTMono, BT Launch and a few other apps, but it seems to be Android related. [URL] ....

I also tried disabling/renaming VoiceDialer.apk, but it only works with the headset button presses not with the microphone issue.

I'll try anything at this point (including dabbling with Java and Android Intents).

General :: Tasker Profile Becomes Inactive After Phone Idle For 10 Minutes

Feb 11, 2014

I have an AT&T Samsung Note 3 SM-N900A running Android 4.3 (baseband version N900AUCUBMJ5, kernel v3.4.0-1625098). I rooted it using Kingo, installed Tasker (with Secure Settings plugin), and created 2 profiles: one with a 'Home' location context, and one with a 'Work' location context. In the 'Location Edit' map screen for each, I set a pinned location w/ a radius of 200m. I also de-select 'GPS' (leaving only 'NET'), since I don't want GPS enabled all the time (to extend battery life). I confirm that these work when I'm actively using the phone.. the profile becomes active when I'm at the specified location (as expected). I know it's active because it's displayed in the Notification Panel (and it's also shown in green in the Tasker profiles list).

The issue I'm having is that after ~10 minutes of idle time (i.e. when the display is off and I'm not using the phone), I find that the profile is no longer active when I turn the display back on and start using the phone again. I confirmed that this *doesn't* happen after 1 minute, 2 minutes, nor 5 minutes, only > 10. I also confirmed that it happens for both profiles consistently. However, as soon as I start Tasker again from the Apps Drawer (or from Recent Apps screen), the profile is immediately activated again, and my Enter task is re-run.

I enabled the run log in Tasker prefs, but it basically shows a clean activation of the profile (with no warnings or anything that looks weird to me).

I know there's a 10-minute timeout in the Display Off Monitoring prefs, but that doesn't seem to be related to my issue. I tried reducing the All Checks Seconds from 600 to 90, rebooted the phone, and it still took ~10 minutes before the profile would become inactive after the phone being idle.
