Every Friday, I’m going to start posting something useful or interesting on Android…
Tasker is a tool that lets your phone do stuff automatically. It’s so useful, it’s kind of hard to explain. Ever want to have the kid’s phone text you when they leave the house? Easy. Want to have your phone automatically set the ringer to vibrate when you are at Church? Done. Want to automatically go to airplane mode late at night? No Problem.
Tasker makes it possible to have your phone automatically do things based on location (GPS or network based), time, events or changes. To create a “task” you select what triggers it, then tell Tasker action to perform. That’s where the fun begins. Tasker has over 190 actions built in.

Special thanks to Mike Cowper for turning me on to this incredibly useful application.
