You can use Tasker for this (Play Store link). Tasker can create macros that are run on certain triggers, such as connecting the phone to a charger. An example of the necessary programming can be found here. Check the link for additional info, but here's the necessary part: Create Profile "Sleep Mode" Add Context Power Source: AC //You can also set ...

It sounds like Agent fits the bill for you. Specifically, the Sleep Agent. I do use the Agent app, though I don't use the Sleep Agent itself, so this list of features is just me going through the setup options in the app. Set Days & Times for it to activate. (defaults to 11:00 PM through 7:00 the next morning, Sunday through Thursday nights.) ...

It really would be nice to have some startup manager shipping with the system, which lets the user decide what to start and what not. But that's not the case, it works a bit different: Apps with the "run at startup" permission can register a "listener" for the BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast ­– which the system always issues on that event. This way they get ...

The only app I know of that works fine is "Android Bot Maker" (XDA link here) sadly, it can't record the touches, but you can set it manually yourself, by finding out the coordinates by enabling "show pointer location" on the developers category of the OS settings.

Another approach: The free app IP webcam is a video streaming tool primarily, but there's also an option to fetch only a photo. It brings a webserver where /photo.png is a continuously updated resource. Since it gets refreshed each time you request it via a browser, you don't have to care about taking a picture every X minutes. You then can use port ...

This is more of a linux question, and it may need to be moved to superuser.se, but I can answer it. On linux, you string commands using && (or || or just ;). With &&, the first command must finish executing and have no error codes in order for the next command in the sequence to run. In your setup, it looks like you want to open an ADB ...

Llama is a great tool! It receives GSM tower ID and learns your locations (home, work, school) so you can set which profile to turn at specific location at specific time. Best feature is that it's NOT a battery drainer.

That's my solution: Create a tasker profile that is triggered every X minutes. Its task has two actions: take a picture and save it with a static name upload the photo to a cloud storage I found FolderSync, which has a Tasker integration and it lets you upload files to many kinds of cloud storage (as title and description suggest, at least - I didn't ...

Tasker is the way to go with this one. Or, I suppose Llama might do the trick for you as well -- As for the receiving end, automatically refreshing a browser window? You'd need a bit of javascript for that --- you would have to be hosting the image share service, yourself - which I don't think you're going to do.. right? You could, after all, have a ...

I use FolderMount (needs root) as a workaround to this issue. I create a link of the folder where the camera images are stored to a different folder in the external SD card. Today some apps store big files over the internal SD card (e.g. games, podcasts, offline RSS content, pictures, videos, offline navigation software). Typically users have a small ...

Not in the general case, no. It's possible to send an intent to start an activity or service (or broadcast an intent to receivers) using the am tool from the Android shell (and therefore from a PC using adb shell). What you can do that way depends on what intent filters the app's developer has chosen to offer, and in most apps it doesn't include actions like ...

I tried the "StorageManager.enableUsbMassStorage" and the "StorageManager.disableUsbMassStorage" to enable and disable the mass storage and its works. Thanks. That methods are private method. So, If you want to use them, You shoud do it by reflection. To get that Storage Manager, you might use getSystemService(java.lang.String) method that included in ...

HiroMacro Auto-Touch Macro works well for me.

You can set permissions (Allowed All / Wi-Fi Only / Blocked All) on per-app basis with LostNet Firewall: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lostnet.fw.free

I made a newer app that does exactly what you asked: Check Me In Non commercial and free to use. The problem I had with the tasker approach is that it doesn't include your location in the http request, a tasker checkin is not valid for your mayorship.
