AutoLocation

AutoLocation


Control your device with your movement! React to Geofences and Activities in Tasker!

AutoLocation is a Tasker plugin that lets you know when you're walking, in a vehicle, cycling, standing still or tilting the device, or when you're in a certain geographical area or spot and react to that information any way you like!

Geofencing is a new powerful location algorithm provided by Google that lets you track your location with higher accuracy and lower power consumption than ever before.

The new Android Fuse Location Provider uses all your device's location sensors to give you the best location updates possible. No longer rely on just "Net" or "GPS" like in Tasker. You can even not use any battery at all and only get location updates when other apps request them!

****************************************
(WARNING: YOU MUST HAVE TASKER INSTALLED FOR THIS APP TO BE OF ANY USE: AutoLocation is only usable as a plugin in Tasker. Please don't rate it negatively because of this.)

To use AutoLocation you must unlock the app. You have 2 options:
- Try app for free for 7 days, available in-app
- Buy AutoLocation unlock key: http://goo.gl/ENxuc

If you don't unlock the app in either of these ways, the AutoLocation Tasker conditions will never be matched.

Please contact me by email if anything is wrong and I'll respond to you promptly and try to fix it as soon as I can. Thank you.
*****************************************

Activity Monitor:
- Change your settings or do any Tasker action based on your current activity
- Activities include walking, in a vehicle, cycling, standing still or tilting the device
- Advanced matching options like level of confidence of an activity and ignoring certain activities while doing others (like ignoring phone tilting while walking)
- You have access to these Tasker variables in the Entry Task (and only in the Entry Task) of an "AutoLocation Activities" condition:
- %alactivity (IN_VEHICLE = 0; ON_BICYCLE = 1;ON_FOOT = 2; STILL = 3; UNKNOWN = 4; TILTING = 5;)
- %alactivitydesc (description for the above code)
- %alactivityconf (confidence level that the detected activity is correct; from 0 to 100)
- You can activate or deactivate the Activity Monitor at any time with a Tasker plugin action

Geofence Monitor:
- Change your settings in Tasker based on your physical location
- Please leave Wifi on when using Geofences. Users have reported that these don't work well when Wifi is off.
- Geofencing is a new powerful algorithm provided by Google that is more battery efficient and more accurate than Tasker's built in location condition. Take a look at this video presentaion to see how it compares to the regular tracking methods Tasker uses: http://goo.gl/Pf1bj
- Add as many as 100 Geofences to always keep track of your whereabouts
- If you find you are being reported to enter and exit a Geofence several times in a row try making the Geofence circle a bit bigger
- Long-touch the map while adding a Geofence to switch between views (normal, sattelite or hybrid)

Fuse Location Monitor:
- Get your location using high-accuracy, better battery life or using no battery at all!
- Variables available on the Location condition's entry task:
- %alaccuracy
- %albearing
- %alspeed
- %altime
- %alaltitude
- %allatitude
- %allongitude
- %alprovider

IMPORTANT: You can enable/disable/toggle these monitors from inside Tasker itself with the "AutoLocation Activities" and "AutoLocation Geofences" plugin actions

Use cases:
- If you like to jog on saturdays, start music player when the walking activity is detected on a saturday morning
- Start navigation app if the "in vehicle" activity is detected right after you left the "Home" geofence
- Make phone silent if you're in the "Work" geofence and are in the "Still" activity
- Send an AutoRemote Notification to your wife when you enter the "Market" geofence, asking her if she needs anything
- And many many more!Your limit is your imagination!

The only way you create location contexts update: obviously worked great on my nexus 5. Working great on my moto x 2014 now too. Still no service at home, but autolocation comes to the rescue!

Free? I wish I had more to rate this off of but I installed it and was immediately told that I had to pay to unlock it. Showing this as free and then making me pay for it is so sleazy that I chose to give it a 1 before looking at any other part.

Sometimes it doesn't work properly doesn't work (event not firing up) for movement like walking, stay still and many more. In another words, the activity movement doesn't work and maybe has bug even I put the confidence level to the lowest value to the 10 and I put the monitoring interval to at least 15 seconds. I tested walking around like half an hour (like a crazy guy just trying this app to see it works or not ) by displaying the output. Basically, it failed. The only thing that work is Geofencing but this is not important feature.. Many people happy the Geofencing feature work but many of them did not realize that the Geofencing feature is a built in function in tasker. You don't have to use 3rd party app!! They are happy because they did not have time to dig up features in Tasker. This is the second time I'm spending time trying your plugin mostly on the Activity features. I spent many hours to make it work, enable Autolocation in the device manager, enable in accessibility, etc.. disable many hibernation app that may cause the problem. i'm using note 3 with kitkat 4.4.2. You know unhappy customer should have refund.

Not much of an improvement over Tasker location I've ran tests and got better results with the built-in Tasker location. I did the near and very near fences, standalone fences, and adjusted both autolocation and tasker refresh values but still didn't achieve the promised end. Seemed to work best when monitoring is set to less than 10 seconds BUT Tasker was a 98% using the power-hungry constant refresh, so no value added for me adding a plugin that will do the same. Had reverted to a combo of cell near and wifi near and everything was gravy.

Annoying ads and nagging The ads and nags to purchase full version.. Also, tasker can do geolocation based tasks on its own without the need of any plugins.
