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 ...

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 ...

An app called Tasker, for rooted phones can schedule SMS messages. According to its site, it can also be configured for Facebook Messenger, though I have not tried it.

This is not built-in to Android – so you'd have to revert to an App for it. 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 ...

Try using Utter + Google Now. It can add tons more voice commands to Google Now, which can be activated while your phone is off just by saying "Okay Google". http://thenextweb.com/lifehacks/2014/05/17/mastering-voice-control-android-going-beyond-google-now/ You can also try a different app called Commandr for Google Now.

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 ...

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 ...

reopening an old thread as I lost this feature and could not for the life of me remember how it was provided after I did a factory reset. Sony has an app called smart connect for use with their smart phones and other bits and bobs they make, its free and you don't need to use it for anything else. When you plug your phone in at night it gives you a host ...

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 ...
