About this app

Control your device with your movement! React to Geofences and Activities in Tasker!

AutoLocation is a Tasker plugin that lets you know when you're walking, in a vehicle, cycling, standing still or tilting the device, or when you're in a certain geographical area or spot and react to that information any way you like!

Geofencing is a new powerful location algorithm provided by Google that lets you track your location with higher accuracy and lower power consumption than ever before.

The new Android Fuse Location Provider uses all your device's location sensors to give you the best location updates possible. No longer rely on just "Net" or "GPS" like in Tasker. You can even not use any battery at all and only get location updates when other apps request them!

****************************************
(WARNING: YOU MUST HAVE TASKER INSTALLED FOR THIS APP TO BE OF ANY USE: AutoLocation is only usable as a plugin in Tasker. Please don't rate it negatively because of this.)

To use AutoLocation you must unlock the app. You have 2 options:
- Try app for free for 7 days, available in-app
- Buy AutoLocation unlock key: http://goo.gl/ENxuc

If you don't unlock the app in either of these ways, the AutoLocation Tasker conditions will never be matched.

Please contact me by email if anything is wrong and I'll respond to you promptly and try to fix it as soon as I can. Thank you.
*****************************************

Activity Monitor:
- Change your settings or do any Tasker action based on your current activity
- Activities include walking, in a vehicle, cycling, standing still or tilting the device
- Advanced matching options like level of confidence of an activity and ignoring certain activities while doing others (like ignoring phone tilting while walking)
- You have access to these Tasker variables in the Entry Task (and only in the Entry Task) of an "AutoLocation Activities" condition:
- %alactivity (IN_VEHICLE = 0; ON_BICYCLE = 1;ON_FOOT = 2; STILL = 3; UNKNOWN = 4; TILTING = 5;)
- %alactivitydesc (description for the above code)
- %alactivityconf (confidence level that the detected activity is correct; from 0 to 100)
- You can activate or deactivate the Activity Monitor at any time with a Tasker plugin action

Geofence Monitor:
- Change your settings in Tasker based on your physical location
- Please leave Wifi on when using Geofences. Users have reported that these don't work well when Wifi is off.
- Geofencing is a new powerful algorithm provided by Google that is more battery efficient and more accurate than Tasker's built in location condition. Take a look at this video presentaion to see how it compares to the regular tracking methods Tasker uses: http://goo.gl/Pf1bj
- Add as many as 100 Geofences to always keep track of your whereabouts
- If you find you are being reported to enter and exit a Geofence several times in a row try making the Geofence circle a bit bigger
- Long-touch the map while adding a Geofence to switch between views (normal, sattelite or hybrid)

Fuse Location Monitor:
- Get your location using high-accuracy, better battery life or using no battery at all!
- Variables available on the Location condition's entry task:
- %alaccuracy
- %albearing
- %alspeed
- %altime
- %alaltitude
- %allatitude
- %allongitude
- %alprovider

IMPORTANT: You can enable/disable/toggle these monitors from inside Tasker itself with the "AutoLocation Activities" and "AutoLocation Geofences" plugin actions

Use cases:
- If you like to jog on saturdays, start music player when the walking activity is detected on a saturday morning
- Start navigation app if the "in vehicle" activity is detected right after you left the "Home" geofence
- Make phone silent if you're in the "Work" geofence and are in the "Still" activity
- Send an AutoRemote Notification to your wife when you enter the "Market" geofence, asking her if she needs anything
- And many many more!Your limit is your imagination!

Installed AutoLocation and used it for the trial period. When the trial period was up it locked and wanted me to purchase the key. When I went to do that it said the app wasn't available because your key app is too old for my phone. In fact the key won't work on any of my devices. Too bad because I liked AutoLocation but now I'm locked out. Oh well!

Did what I needed it to do. Idk why there's so many reviews that have one problem with the app, probably something simple, and likely user error. The developer of this app is more than forthcoming with his contact information, and has obviously spent an unfathomable amount of time tutorializing and showing off new features. Cut this guy some slack. I know thats not the world we live in. Its much easier to just hit the one star and move on. I hate to be this guy, but in this case it is warranted

Was working until upgrade to latest Android version 10 I only use the activities part, but I've told it to ignore everything but cycling (confidence=40) (which I use to kick off a Strava task). I've uninstalled and reinstalled to try and fix it but no difference. I can run the tasker Strava task manually. I've also adjusted my power options not to optimize for tasker, the plugin and Strava. I'll experiment further with it (just had an update notification for tasker)

What exactly isn't working for you? I still use it on Android 10 with no issues.

What's new

- Updated target API to 33. This might break some stuff, so let me know if it does.
