The easiest way to compare these two apps: Locale costs more. But it is a lot more user friendly. You just set up "situations" with triggers and actions. Then you prioritize the situations. That's it. Tasker costs less. But it is a lot more customizable. It's more like being given a scripting language. There are TONS of options and choices and it ...

Yes. Tasker will do this. When you're setting up the state, choose "bluetooth connected", then click the magnifying glass next to the "name" field. It will search for paired bluetooth devices. Choose the one you want and configure states/actions. Then do it again for the other BT device.

I am the developer of Locale, and I wanted to make sure the most up to date information is available here: Locale does support backup and restore. More information about this feature can be found on our website at http://feedback.twofortyfouram.com/forums/5655-locale-feedback/suggestions/74784-backup-settings-?ref=title We publish a Headphones Plug-in ...

The keyboard settings shows all supported languages no matter the locale of the device, so if a language is not listed than it's not supported. A good alternative is AnysoftKeyboard; you can download language packs for it.

Somebody mentioned Tasker? So here I am. And in fact you could do that with Tasker and the help of the Secure Settings Plugin: Create a new task: Plugins -> Secure Settings -> Locale Picker (pick your target locale here) App -> Run (select the app to run) Plugins -> Secure Settings -> Locale Picker (pick your original locale here) Assign an icon to this ...

If you want to change locale settings on your device, the Set Locale and Language app1 might prove helpful as well. Locale-Einstellung looks almost the same. MoreLocale 22 might offer an alternative, as it also allows to create custom locales -- which is also supported by Custom Locale3. With Any Locale4 switching the locale can be as easy as tapping a ...

Quoting from the Locale's feedback forum regarding the Backup/Restore functionality: AUTOMATIC BACKUP/RESTORE Locale has automatic backup and restore using Android 2.2's cloud-based backup mechanism. There are no configuration options within Locale--it just works! To use this feature, simply make sure that backup/restore is enabled by ...

I am the developer of Locale. Locale has a plug-in architecture, and there is a free plug-in available on the Android Market called "Locale Bluetooth Plug-in" which provides this functionality.

I am the developer of Locale. To get started, please read this article on our website about toggling 3G which should answer your questions: http://feedback.twofortyfouram.com/forums/5655-locale-feedback/suggestions/67867-3g-support-for-network-setting?ref=title From that article, I think you'll find that using APNDroid will be the best solution: it is ...

I am the developer of Locale. This can be accomplished with Locale, with a slight tweak to the current setup. As current described, you have a race condition: Locale is increasing the volume but only after Android has already posted the notification, so the volume increase appears to have no effect. To get this to work correctly, try the Locale ...

I have just released a new Bluetooth plugin for Locale - which looks for BT devices by Profile (A2DP (audio devices) or Headset/Hands-Free) - optionally you can select a specific device to look for as well. Check it out @ Google Play: Locale Bluetooth Audio Plugin

Please visit http://www.twofortyfouram.com/support.html Q: I see the Shortcut setting opens apps... how do I kill apps? A: Android treats memory differently than a desktop computer. When leaving an app, it is paused rather than killed, so that returning to it later is faster. If Android needs more memory, it will automatically close apps that have ...

It's not that the locale is locked, it's just that it's only useful to change it to a language that's already on your phone. If the phone doesn't have a translation and other needed files for German, changing the locale to German won't have any effect. It's just like if you have a German phone and you install an app that's not translated into German: you'll ...

Two possibilities: Side load flash with the APK found here, and then run Dolphin browser to access the flash site Try running the site through FlashFox app as it has built in flash (no need to sideload anything)

That's something not easy to be simulated by Tasker, but should be possible. The most likely trick is working with variables -- an approach you find described at Google Groups: How To Default Profile? (check the post by Nikita Popov). That example just defines a single default profile to fall back on if no other profile is active. A more complex example ...

I am the developer of Locale. This issue only occurs with pirated copies of Locale. Pirated copies of Locale are modified by hackers, so a pirated copy of the app is NOT the same as the version purchased from the Android Market. The hacking process changes the code of the app, introducing new bugs that weren't present in the original. Please only install ...

Why not just use Handcent SMS and configure a custom "loud" ringtone for that particular sender. you can also configure the app to repeat the alert every X minutes, so you keep getting reminded until you dismiss the alert. In Handcent, open the conversation thread you want to customise and click the Personalization icon (in the top bar, to the right of the ...

I saw a tip recently: You can set your "Where's My Droid?" passphrase to be that string that you're expecting. That'll change the device from silent mode and go to maximum volume.
