The BEST way to create location based profiles. AutoLocation is so much more efficient and dynamic than the built in Tasker alternatives. Definitely worth the $2 if you are creating a lot of location based profiles / tasks. Amazing developer, responsive on Google+, and his other plugins are just as good.
Sometimes it doesn't work properly doesn't work (event not firing up) for movement like walking, stay still and many more. In another words, the activity movement doesn't work and maybe has bug even I put the confidence level to the lowest value to the 10 and I put the monitoring interval to at least 15 seconds. I tested walking around like half an hour (like a crazy guy just trying this app to see it works or not ) by displaying the output. Basically, it failed. The only thing that work is Geofencing but this is not important feature.. Many people happy the Geofencing feature work but many of them did not realize that the Geofencing feature is a built in function in tasker. You don't have to use 3rd party app!! They are happy because they did not have time to dig up features in Tasker. This is the second time I'm spending time trying your plugin mostly on the Activity features. I spent many hours to make it work, enable Autolocation in the device manager, enable in accessibility, etc.. disable many hibernation app that may cause the problem. i'm using note 3 with kitkat 4.4.2. You know unhappy customer should have refund.
Study the tutorials! AutoLocation is great stuff, but you really do need to do your homework beforehand, instead of just diving in to the app and Tasker. The trick is to have two circular fences around your target location, and increase the location sampling rate when you enter the outer one and decrease it when you enter the inner one. In this way you only burn battery when you approach your destination and need accurate fixes. I'm sure I have more to learn ...
Trial is shady, constant notifications UPDATE: I am moving to a four star review for now. I need this plugin for another app which happens to be free, but I don't know if the other app will do what I want, so I didn't really want to purchase this app just to try it and life is too busy to try to remember to unsubscribe after 7 days. After some people told me the other app should do what I want, and Joao explained why he does the subscription (I think there are better options - like SwiftKey or TitaniumBackup do - and the subscription should be
Issue in creating inside geofencing Dear developer, Whenever I am creating a geofence, it is an outside geofence b default. How do we create inside geofence? i can't use this app due to this.
So far so good This seems to make a lot more sense than the way Tasker handles locations. Tasker also hasn't been working right for me lately with regard to locations, so I'm glad I found this plugin. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the obnoxious messages trying to get me to purchase it (which worked I guess, lol).
