btw, can you kill Google Maps navigation (not just Google Maps showing a map) with Tasker?
and is Tasker for free or paid?
2  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 29, 2014, 09:15:00 AM
I had some headaches getting Tasker to actually close stuff. As far as I can tell, an outright close doesn't work. But if you can find it, many apps have a built-in way of requesting that they close.

For example, I found that with Waze, the way to get it to close is by sending an action "Eliran_Close_Intent" to Package "com.waze" targeting "Broadcast Receiver".


omg, how am I supposed to find that?

So you think that the problem resides to the fact that llama cannot correctly identify the area?

Because, I think it resides to that llama cannot kill the Maps application. That's because I click 'test actions' and it doesn't kill the navigation.

But anyway, I will follow your instructions, thanks!

EDIT: Each time it says 'XXXXXXXX number: not added to any area' in the log, that number is each time different! Do I need to add all of each to my Home area?

This is the event I have set:

Condition:
Enter Area: Home

Actions:
Kill Application: Maps, Waze

In the log, it says many times: 'Not added to any areas.'
Not sure what that means.
And that line is being generated in the log every 30 seconds!

By the way, I open the navigation and I click 'test actions' and it doesn't kill the navigation app!

Also, I would like to say 'repeat' and Google Maps to repeat the last navigation instruction it said! is it possible? because sometimes I don't remember what it said!

6  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Satnav for android on: October 29, 2014, 05:22:25 AM
it seems that Google Maps does not suggest me the shortest (in time) way, but it navigates me via the way I followed few times in the past! it seems it identified that this way is the preferred and it doesn't change it to the shortest way! is there a way to fix this? I want to always navigate via the shortest in time way!
7  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 29, 2014, 05:19:50 AM
by the way, I set it to kill (without root privileges) the Maps application when I am in the area of Home or Work, and it didn't kill the Google maps navigation when I approached Home or Work! any hint?
8  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Android shortcuts on: October 28, 2014, 05:05:34 PM
For the first one, yes.

There's a widget called "Directions" which you can just put on your "desktop" and it will have you configure it to set the destination and navigation type (car, public transportation, biking, or walking).

For the second one... Sounds like your MobileVOIP app would need a widget to support that. Or if it could hook into your device so that calls made were intercepted and the MobileVOIP app was made as the default app (I used GrooVeIP which did this). Then you could just use a Contact widget to call the contact and let the MobileVOIP app intercept/override it and go from there.

Thanks!

Can llama or any other way automatically open google maps and navigate to a specific location, when I enter my car?
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Android shortcuts on: October 28, 2014, 04:52:06 PM
Hello!

I want with a single click, to open Google maps and navigate from my location to a specific location

I want with a single click to open MobileVOIP app, wait to login and call a specific number

Are these possible?

Thanks!

Also, in my experience, you usually don't need to fill any form. You just need to click a "continue" or "I agree" button. It's annoying losing your credentials every hour and needing to open the browser and press the button again, especially if you don't realize you've been disconnected (e.g., using a WiFi tablet (no option for 3G/LTE)).

that's exactly what I am saying

also, in some wifi's you need to enter full login info (username/password) and click submit

hello!
can anyone point me to a standalone scientific calculator like the one below to buy?

thanks!

So kalos needs a form filler I guess, forgetting it has nothing to do with phone but the browser?

not sure if a simple form filler will do that, because after you connect to such wifi, the login website doesnt open automatically, you only get a prompt
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: auto wifi on: October 25, 2014, 01:15:35 PM
Android wifi with credentials doesn't auto connect?

The WiFi does connect, but the proxy/router asks for confirmation or credentials before you are allowed to access the outside world.

I can confirm this one - Recently tried to connect to a BTOpenZone WiFi network the other day, not even an hour after disconnecting, and it had already forgotten me and wanted my e-mail address to login again - Not really much of an issue to be honest.

ofcourse it is an issue, because your phone is supposedly connected to wifi, but it is not! and it doesn't automatically switch to 3G! It is in a state with no internet access!

oh, I forgot to mention I am talking about my android mobile phone!
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / auto wifi on: October 25, 2014, 09:59:26 AM
Hello
Often in order to connect to a wifi network, it is required that you visit a webpage and click there a login button or enter your username and password and login etc.
This procedure you often need to repeat after some time.

As you understand, this is very problematic. I just want whenever I am in range and whenever I have wifi enabled, I want to automatically connect to the saved wifi network, without having to do extra actions.

Is this possible?

I understand that the network administrator may somehow control access to the wifi, but since I have the credentials, I want to automatically connect!

Is there any fix for this?

Thanks!

it doesnt really make much sense that you keep trying to convert those with the latter approach, to your enthusiastic approach.

Not to mention the futility of trying to innovate a dinosaur. Nobody is going to waste the time and effort to create a new and better payphone...because they are simply no longer needed. Gas stations are in an earlier yet much the same situation. There is no point in streamlining/improving a process that will start dying out in another 20 or so years.

I don't object to hybrids...I just find the toothless emasculated ones to be obnoxious. There are a few on the market that don't completely suck.

Hydrogen filling stations, yes.
Charging stations, yes.
Gasoline stations ... Let. It. Go. The risk/reward factor just ain't there.

look here what they develop, while we already have driveless technology
and it's not a small project, they want to make it detect even electrolytic imbalances!
they spend so many money and effort, while the future is clearly driveless!
Ford unveils a car seat which detects when a driver is having heart attack

You do realize that that assertion is rather obtusely predicated on the assumption that it is perfectly fine for any or all of the other occupants in the vehicle to drop dead...right?

Just because a vehicle is/was/would be driverless doesn't mean having it arrive at its destination with a corpse in it is to be considered a win.

That technology has potential, and a definite future in many applications - Kind of like Life Alert for your car.


I insist it's useless and you know why? because if we want to monitor health of frail individuals, we should do it constantly, not only inside the car

I had in mind wearable devices that will monitor your health and report in case of emergency, that's why you don't need car seats to do this!

it's the health organizations and medical devices companies that should take care of this, not automotive companies!

My preferred LaTeX editor is TexMaker. Kalos, it has what you are looking for, in the drop-down menus «LaTeX» and «Math», as well as left side panel symbols.


I just installed TexMaker.
It seems very hard to use program for people who are new to this.
I was expecting a GUI of mathematical symbols, that when you click on each icon, to display an example on how to use the code to generate what you want
is there anything like this?
21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Satnav for android on: October 22, 2014, 01:00:48 PM
You should really try Sygic*, its partly free, and fully usable off-line (without internet connecton) if you pre-download the maps when still on WiFi.

* No connection to the company.

Sygic, Igo, Copilot, are all good and can all be used offline once you download maps.

thanks for your suggestions but I really need the excellent search feature of Google Maps, that you type anything (like petrol station, mcdonalds, partial post code, supermarket, etc) and it returns excellent local results
22  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Satnav for android on: October 22, 2014, 12:46:25 PM
but I need connection to tell me the best route after taking into consideration the traffic!
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Satnav for android on: October 22, 2014, 11:29:40 AM
You mean the 'voice volume' ? I have already set it to maximum.

But the USA voice doesn't say "including street names" below!
So it won't speak out street names! Which is an absolute no no.

Also, that Waze thingy, doesn't offer the ability to preview the voices somehow, which is bad

Haven't tried this yet, but apparently the app SilentNight's description is:

Quote
Configure the phone to go silent and/or airplane mode between two times of the day.

Note: one can get the apk from that page or install via F-Droid -- see the page for details if interested.
thanks but I kinda liked llama, because it also gives me the ability to disable wifi between two specific times of the weekdays
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: android app to set my vibration mode on specific hours on: October 22, 2014, 11:09:43 AM
Today I used llama.
I was enthusiastic about the many options it offers but I am disappointed.
This is because I set it to set my sound profile to silent, from 9am to 5pm when I am at work, and it didn't restore it at 5pm to 'normal profile'!
How can I do this?
Do I have to set another event trigger to set my phone to 'normal sound profile' each weekday after 5pm?
Same with WiFi, while it disabled wifi while I was at work, it didn't re-enable it, at 5pm.
Any hint?
