I programmed Llama to do exactly that. You'll need two events: 3G auto on 3G auto off and one Llama variable: auto3G Event 1 (3G auto on) when airplane mode is disabled [prevents the system to work if airplane mode is enabled] when mobile data is not connected [this ensures there will always be a break of 60 minutes after each (manual) data or ...

The goal may seem to be switching the keyboard app when the password is to be entered, but the real issue is to protect the password from being logged by third-party keyboard apps, or at least be restricted from being uploaded somewhere.

Tasker can do Airplane mode only in Android 2.2 - 4.0. The application recommends to use Secure Settings plugin and rooted device to get the feature. It would be great to understand why Tasker fails with such a feature in later versions of Android.

Most automation apps support geofencing, using either the Google Play Services or the standard proximity alert APIs. Automate has built-in support for both, see settings. However, the Google Play Services geofencing is no longer the default as it has proven to be the most unreliable.

You could try llama, it is an automation app with location-based actions. Follow this steps: In the llama app go to the 'areas' tab (the first on the left), where you have to set up the 'home' location. The app uses the antennas you connect to to identify locations, so you must be home to do it. Then go to 'events' tab (the second) and tap on the plus sign ...

Other than MacroDroid which is already covered by 3DDario here, you can consider any of the following apps -- none requires root for the goal. Tasker (paid; 7 day free trial). Profile: Any of the following would do: Location: choose the location State → Net → WiFi Near → fill the details -- I'm unsure whether it would work if the hotspot ...

I don't know about any app that would allow creating a contact with wildcard or regex but you can consider Tasker to execute a particular action as a recognition of those particular numbers. Profile: State → Phone → Call Type: Incoming Number: *01 * is the wildcard here which would match anything. 01 is the suffix you want at the end of the ...

Unless the device is rooted, only the files at the ...

When just looking for that kind of automation feature, Smart WiFi Toggler would be worth a look: Smart WiFi Toggler is an application designed to control your phone's WiFi using location based rules. Its aim is to conserve battery and minimize data charges by turning WiFi off ...
