Tasker support not what was expected Installed to use with tasker on nexus 7. Setup 3 distinct tasks for invisible, busy, and available. All tasks set status to the same status and upon reopening the individual commands, it seems the plugin was silently defaulting to the last entered command to it. No documentation or developer website to check for help. Uninstalled and bitter about it.
Doesn't work at all... As a long time user of Locale, I was happy to find this plug-in for Gtalk. Since my company just recently moved to Google Apps and we use Gtalk to track availability, I thought this would be a great tool to program in my phone to show when I'm in the office, out of the office, or completely inaccessible. If only it worked. I spent 45 minutes trying to get it to push a status update using geographic location and time of day. The Toast response was always "Trouble connecting" or "Cannot log in". I finally gave up. I really wish this worked, because it would mean people could easily find out where I was based on situations like geographic location.
Doesn't work - please update Any tasker actions just pop up 'Login problem'. Could be because I'm on an Apps account, but still.
It works BUT... ...you *must* be logged into Chat in the Gmail web interface or it won't work. I was logged out of Chat in Gmail because I use a separate chat client, and it stopped working. As soon as I signed back in, my Tasker actions started working again.
Needs work As other reviews have stated, this app badly needs Oath support. Storing user name and password locally is not acceptable anymore in this day and age. I don't know how this app stores the credentials; I don't mean to imply that it does, but for all I know it is stored as plain text, for any other app to access.
Gets the job done well Using this with Tasker and it does just well. Has the options I need and never falters.
* Toast messages now optional
* Retries for up to 1 minute if no connectivity (useful for events where you also switch between wifi and mobile)
* Bugfix for previous errors
* Support for Tasker variables
* Updated for latest Locale version
