AutoPebble Discussion  - 
 
Quick question...Can AutoPebble work in tandem with Tasker to emulate Pebble Dialer?  I'm having a problem loading the 2.0 beta of Pebble Dialer and it just hit me that I might be able to recreate the same functionality with AutoPebble.

+Emilien Socchi sounds good; thank you.  I like Dialer, but it does need a bit more work (out of Beta) for 2.0.  The developer just updated Notification Center, so I hope the same is coming for Dialer.

My first real attempt at a photosphere. I think it came out pretty good. This was near the NBC Tower in downtown Chicago.

I recently set up my first AutoLocation profile. It's a simple profile based on a geofence around my church. If I'm within my church geofence on Sunday at 8am, my system and media volume gets lowered to zero and my Bible app loads.

My question is this: How do I set up an exit task to stop geofence monitoring and to switch my audio back? When I long press the task on the profile tab, no option for an exit task shows.

Thanks in advance...

I was gonna just lurk around and see if I could find the answer to the following question on my own.  But, I might as well go ahead and ask anyway.  Since I've bought the full version of AutoShare, I've been experimenting with the new tutorials that +João Dias has been posting that use intents.

My question is this: How do you get the information needed to create your own intents?

Hey +J Pearson...I just finished trying to mess with that Intent Intercept app.  I can't see how to make it grab intent information for the stuff i'm interested in (ex: Gmail searches, Facebook/Twitter posts).  

I'll keep it installed for now.  But, unless I have an "A-Ha!" moment in the middle of the night, I'll probably chuck it and wait for a better solution.  I'm in no hurry, anyway.  This is just one of those "I wanna do it just to say I did it" moments.  :-)

How-to: tips and tutorials  - 
 
I want to give back to the community by posting my text message profile I came up with (with help from others here).  It works as follows:

1. A text comes in.
2. If I am not on the phone, my phone says:" You have a text from <sender>.  Would you like me to read it?"
3. If I say yes to reading the text, the media volume rises and the text is read.  After loading the Message app and going to the homescreen (to clear the notification), the phone asks me "Would you like to reply?"
4. If I say no to reading the text, the phone says "Ok.  You can read it later."
5. If I say reply (followed by reply message) when asked to reply, The phone will say "The outgoing message says <message>, send the reply text, and say "Your text has been sent."
6. If I say cancel when asked about replying, the phone will say "Ok.  Don't forget to reply later."

I hope this is easy to follow.  I admit that it may be an easier way to implement this concept.  But, this does work and I'm happy to give back to the community.  Enjoy!

+Fred Kieu In my Read Text task, one of the last actions is a Say command that asks "Would you like to reply right now?" Right after that is an AutoVoice Recognize action. If I don't want to reply, I say "cancel". That triggers an AutoVoice Recognized profile that triggers my Don't Reply Text task.

My Reply Text task uses a variable so I can say whatever I want and is triggered by the word "reply (?<reply>.+)"...that last part represents the variable. Whatever I say after the word reply fills a variable called %reply. The Reply Text task shows how I use that variable to send the SMS.

Hope that helps...

AutoPebble Discussion  - 
 
I have a question that hopefully someone can assist with. I have a new Pebble that I'm about crack open soon. I've had this idea in my head about creating profiles based on whether I'm on home wifi, work wifi or driving with different AutoPebble lists for each one.

My question is this...can I get the AutoPebble app to open on the watch automatically based on Tasker variables or do I need to manually open the AutoPebble app on the watch each time?

Thanks in advance for helping out a Pebble newbie!

+João Dias,

I'm trying to recreate the example on the EventGhost page of your AutoApps website titled: Opening files on your phone from the Windows Explorer context menu (Beta Feature).  I have the macro set up and I confirmed that I can send messages/notifications from my PC to my phone.  However, when I right-click a file in Windows Explorer, I do not have an option to "Send to EventGhost". 

Because of the firewall at my job, I can only send messages from the PC to my device...not the other way around.  Would that have something to do with the problem?  I'd appreciate any info you could provide.   

Thanks in advance...

Edit: I just realized today that my EventGhost AutoRemote plugin was not updated after the 3.0 release of AutoRemote.  I fixed that and now have the "Send to EventGhost" option.   However, I now get a "HTTP Error 400: Bad Request" error in EG when I try to send a file.

+Michael Lierman I did get it to work. Unfortunately, I can't remember what I did to get it to work...lol. I do know that I can only use it at home because of the firewall at my office. If I remember, I'll check my EG settings at home and hit you up later. I do remember that once I verified that I had all up to date files, everything worked.

General Discussion  - 
 
Can people please share their real world uses for AutoLocation?  I've been having a ball lately taking the time to learn more about Tasker.  As everyone here already knows, the plugins by +João Dias make Tasker both easier and fun to use.  But, I'm stuck trying to figure out how to fully utilize AutoLocation.

I currently use Cell Near to toggle wifi on and off based on whether or not I'm at home or work.  I also know that for AutoLocation to work properly, wifi must be on.  Is the benefits of AutoLocation worth having wifi on all the time?

Disclaimer: I'm just looking for opinions.  I know it's really up to me if I find something useful or not.

I use Autolocation to get calendar entries for the time in a geofence. So I get a nice list in a seperate calendar to see where and when I was.
No need to login and logout for the places, I have to go (job).
