Let's talk Instant Apps. Have you ever used it? Is it something you come across at all?

Android - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 08:34

This has really been one of those unicorn features of Android I've never gotten to experience even after enabling it. I'm curious if I'm the only one or the rest of r/Android can testify.

Extracting part of each variable in array?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 08:02

I'm trying to make a notification which appears every morning with my calendar events for the day. I'm using autoweb with the Google calendar API to read the data from my calendar. This results in two arrays, %items_summary() with the name of each event and %start_datetime() which has the start time and date of each event in the format 2018-06-18T13:00:00+01:00.

From this, for each event I want to extract only the time in hours and minutes (ie. 13:00). In an ideal world I'd convert this to 12 hour time but I can cope without. For the life of me I can't find a method that works. My instinct was to use a for loop with the items %start_datetime() and search & replace to remove the end of each variable (:00+01:00) then split it using 'T' as the splitter and save the second part but I can't manage to save the result to use after the for loop is finished. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Are there any devs here seeking something quick and fun to code?

Developing Android Apps - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 07:59

A few others and I are working on an MVP for a new anxiety app. We could do with an A.A.D (awesome android developer) if they have the time :)

Screen dimming and locking issue

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 07:07

So I guess I'm pretty new to Tasker, but I spent past week trying to set up a neat little alarm clock that plays a song and then afterwards plays my morning briefing through Google assistant. I also have just figured out how to unlock the phone with a pin unlock without rooting the phone, I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus , I just used autoinput to punch in my PIN number for me. The problem is is that even when I have a 5 minute screen timeout, after the task successfully unlock the phone after 5 seconds the screen will dim and then will re lock the phone. This doesn't happen if I use my fingers to unlock the phone so I don't know what's going on I would imagine that the Android system would be handling the unlock in the same way.

This screws up the next task that I run which is the alarm clock so does anyone have any ideas?

  • How do I pass data between my Activities?
  • Does anyone have a link to the source for the AOSP messaging app?
  • Is it possible to programmatically change the color of the status bar without targeting API 21?

Tasker instead Smart Network Xposed?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 06:44

So I hve been using the xposed module smart network since years but it's kinda outdated and I thought why not use Tasker instead. So my questions are is there a way to turn off Bluetooth when screen off unless I have my BT headset connected. Also WLAN off when screen off when i'm not connected to a WLAN network and 2G for screen off aswell.

Does anybody else still use IR blasters in this day and age?

Android - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 06:25


  • Xiaomi Redmi 5
  • Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro
  • Huawei P20 Pro
  • Honor 10
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 SE
  • Xiaomi Redmi Y2

Damn. We are really down to only two brands (Xiaomi and Huawei) in 2018 that are still supporting IR blasters in their phone.

I hope IR blasters on phones won’t be extinct by 2020
