Hello everyone ! Here we go for a small story :

Nowadays, your device has bluetooth, wifi, adaptive brightness and a lot of other settings. I was tired to switch between screens to enable or disable them one by one.

That's why I created μTask which automate this process. ÁTask allow you to create a task for each app which will be applied when you launch the app.

There is a bunch of possibilities :

- Brightness auto/manual
- Media volume default/manual
- Mobile data on/off
- Wifi on/off
- Bluetooth on/off
- GPS on/off (beta)
- Synchronization on/off

And if your device is rooted, you can enjoy more features (depending of your kernel) :

- CPU governor
- Maximum CPU frequency
- Minimum CPU frequency
- IO scheduler
- Read ahead buffer
- TCP congestion algorithm
- High audio performances on/off
- High wifi performances (wifi_pm) on/off

DOWNLOAD

For those who are unable to access the google play store, the apk is available in the download section



Keep in mind that it's still a BETA !

TODO LIST

Here are the features which needs to be implemented or the bugs to solve.

- Brightness default mode (fixed)
- Sync on/off (fixed)
- Reset parameters individually (fixed)
- Fix brightness bug (waiting for feedbacks)
- Data on/off bug (waiting for feedbacks)
- GPS background toggle (using root and secure settings) (investigating)
- GPS bug (investigating)
- Screen rotation (todo)
- Screen timeout (todo)
- Separate volume toggle (todo)
- Xposed system hook (todo)
- Event on jack plugged (todo)
- Event for battery (todo)

PREVIEW

Cool concept.. Lightweight at the moment... Adding screen rotation would be really useful.

I will take a look for your suggestion. But it could be difficult because a non-system app can not enable/disable the gps in background.
However, I can develop a parameter for the gps settings window opens when you launch the application. Does it seems correct for you ?

For the Motorola 2013 Droid, when you ask Touchless control to read the notifications, the volume is really low. But Touchless control is not a standalone app, it's embedded in the settings of the device. Will the "media volume on/off feature in this app help solve the problem?

Ps. I like the idea of this app, it sounds like Motorola's smart action!
