This isn't really a full tutorial, more a merge of two separate ones so that you can start tasker tasks and / or autovoice, in order to do home-automation or basically just start any tasker task you want.
Let me show you what I'm talking about:
What you need:Tasker
AutoVoice (optional, if you dont want to launch a task directly)
I'm creating a simple app, mostly for practice, and having problems getting my makeshift button to work. I'm using a rectangle as the background for the button, so I can use colors for the background, and layered a text box over it to display the text for the "button". Using the "tap" event of the text box, I trigger the main task...
I have an S5 which I use Tasker to recognize the phone being flipped face down to turn off the ringer, etc. I know there are other apps to do this, but since I use Tasker for other stuff I was hoping to continue. But, when the phone goes to sleep, it appears that Tasker can not recognize the phone being flipped.
I was wondering if there was a way to create a widget with tasker that disables certain profiles. I ask this because when I travel I use my phone for maps and spotify. The instant I change from maps to spotify tasker tends to kill my gps. I also have a tasker profile to run greenify every so often.
I recently picked up Tasker, and so am trying to figure my way around how to use it for my in-car install. However, I can't seem to figure out, what is probably the most important piece, getting the screen to switch off / airplane mode to switch on when I remove power. I have installed Secure Settings plug in, but everything I have tried so far to get the screen to switch off has failed.
When ever I attempt to start my Kindle Fire(It's rooted, with ICS), it sometimes will not boot. However, on rare occasions, it starts up. I go through the FFF loading screen, get the booting splash screen. I get to my lock screen, and boom! It shuts down. Repeat..
Also, I do get stuck at FFF's "CHARGING, LOW BATTERY PLEASE WAIT" screen.
