    I was talking to some of my Black co-workers and I found out they didnt know about this app called Tasker that lets you automate a lot of the functions in your android phone. I thought about how much I use it and how helpful it is to me. For example. When I get up in the morning it automatically runs a routine that starts a playlist of Black affirmations, connects to my home wifi, and sets an alarm for 45 minutes ahead so I know when I have to get on the road. At night when I go to bed it turns my volume down low, shuts off wifi and bluetooth, says good night in Kswahili, and then starts a playlist of soothing African songs that I sleep to. You can do as little or as much automation as you like. The possibilities are probably unlimited especially when you incorporate other technology like NFC tags. I included a video by this brother on youtube that helped me get started using it.

    Senegal ... thank you for sharing!

    The things you do with your phone! Whew! ... :cook2:

    I got tired just reading about all that getting done! :)

    I'm like ... what?! ... :eeek:

    It sounds like a lot of work to get it setup ... a bunch of click'n at least ... :chair:

    I'm gonna listen to the videos though and see what i learn ... it may not be so hard.

    Really nice share ... thank you! ... :toast:

    I'm not claiming to be an expert but I am pretty good at setting it up so if anyone needs help or has a question about it I am willing to try and provide a solution.
