Changing the behavior of the power button

I bought tasker recently and I tested simple tasks like turning on wifi at a certain time or changing the display timeout for certain apps. So far it's pretty neat.

My power button is a bit buggy lately and sometimes pressing it once will trigger two presses, so the screen will turn on/off again... I was wondering if it's possible to change the behavior of the button so that the phone ignores a second press if the first press was done X ms ago. I think this is probably possible with root tools, but I'd rather not root because for now I don't really need it for other stuff, and this isn't a huge problem anyways. Has anyone tried something similar using tasker (or something similar)?

My app doubles daily active users but admob reduced RPM to half

Developing Android Apps - 4 hours 16 min ago

I'm developping an App by my own (android only) and after 1 month on google play i grew the daily active users base from 100 to around 300 users.

The user avarage engagement kept around 15 minutes/day (those data come from firebase dashboard)

But on last days my admob revenue reduced to lower than half

I have 2 adunits in this app: 1 for a banner, 1 for video reward

During the whole month the banner got around 0.25 and video reward around 1.90USD RPM

all this changed to 0.11 and 1.11USD RPM respectivelly

Although the user growing happened slowly during the month... the admob revenue dropped at once, from one day to another

There was absolutelly no change in app that could explain this, the only thing that happened was I added some in-app products (and made few sales) and I connected the admob app with the play store link (I still dont know what is the point of that the only change i saw was the admob page now shows the icon of my app)

I sent some support requests to several google products all of them came with very stupid and generic responses most of all suggesting i should run an ad campaing to grow my user base

I was able to grew the user base during the month thanks to an ad campaing (ran out of google companies)

I made one spreadsheet with data from admob and firebase if someone can look the data and give me some insights

I really need help, on top of my mind the only thing I can think about this problem is like google has some kind of "special support" to micro apps in order to motivate them keep developing, once i reached the score to be classified as "small app" google removed any benefit or even injected some dificulties in order to force me use their services to keep growing

"Allow Phone Access" in WebView will not stay checked

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 22:07

Whenever I check "Allow Phone Access" and then back out of the screen, it un-checks itself. I have a stock T-Mobile Galaxy Note 9 on Android 8.1. Any ideas?
