6 launcher for one App

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 13:17

Hey all, i was looking for an honest feedback on this feature on an Android app we're currently developing for GTD (getting things done). We have 6 app launchers for different part of the app. Some of our testers hated it but some love it. What do you think about this? Is this a bad idea? Would this make users angry, seeing 6 icons after installing one app?

How to automatically turn wifi off if the screen is on and turn it back on when screen is off, but only do this at work?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 12:24

I only need Tasker for this. The wifi at work isn't good enough to browse so I prefer using mobile data. However it's good enough for Spotify so I prefer wifi on when I'm not using my phone.

I also want this to just happen at work. Is there a way to do that? Thanks!

[DEV] Tasker 5.6.4b Beta: NFC Tag Event and Action!

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 12:11

Another beta, another major new feature that I hope you'll like! :)

NFC Tag Event And Action

Allows you to react to NFC Tags and write data to them!

With the event, you can run any task when you put an NFC tag next to your phone.

With the action you can read and write data from and to the tag.

This allows for something like this for example! :) On the first phone I react to scanning the tag by saving my voice command to the tag, and on the second one I read it back out loud!

Other Stuff
  • When manually backing up data, also give option to backup to Google Drive
  • Added Navigation Bar action to JavaScript functions to test out if I can add these functions with no issues
  • App -> Services condition now uses android.permission.DUMP and android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS permissions so that it works in Oreo
  • Fixed many, many bugs

As always, if you want to try this, sign up for the Tasker and App Factory betas here.

Let me know how it works for you! :)

Have we reached the peak of the bubble for Smartphone's features?

Android - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 10:52

I used to be very excited on every new OS release (either being iOS or Android, or heck, even BlackBerry), and every new flagship Smartphone announced; and looking forward on trying out. Every WWDC, every Google IO... Now I mostly miss them and read about days later, barely noticing anything worthy of interest. I craved for my carrier's contract termination plan to see which phone should I give myself for the next 1-2 years of the next contract.

Maybe it's because I'm getting old, but this is no longer happening. About two years ago, I got a Galaxy S7, and my plan ended this november. I wasn't so excited on getting a new phone, so I kept my S7 and switched to a no-contract plan.

I no longer see new features that are breakthrough, or that would entice me into get a new device.

PSA: Don’t update Crashlytics to 2.9.7, it fails to log crashes

Developing Android Apps - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 08:46

Found out the hard way that the latest 2.9.7 release of Crashlytics from Dec 4 fails to log crashes (or non-fatals) at all.

I mean, you had one job!

Stick to 2.9.6, or if you've already updated your deps, then downgrade before pushing a new release.

Gboard still has the 'add to dictonary' option, it is just hidden

Android - Thu, 12/13/2018 - 06:58

Hi all For a while now, I've been really bothered by the fact that I can no longer quick add custom words to my personal dictionary from the text field I'm typing in. However, some time ago I accidentally found out that the feature actually has not been removed! It seems to just been hidden, and so far I've only found one way to get it to show up again. By using facebook messenger chat heads.

Step 1 As you can see in this first image, this is what happens now when you mistype a word.

Step 2 The second image shows what happens when you close and reopen the chat head. This gives us back the red line and by extension...

Step 3 ...the option to add it to our dictionary!

I don't know if it's just me, but I've searched for this problem numerous times and found nothing to do about it except 'adding words manually to the dictionary' which isn't a solution at all.

Would there be any way to get this feature back in all typing fields?
