I wish. I've been flooded with work lately.

I get to leave for my skiing trip this Sunday coming up. I'm really excited about it.

Skyrim is very addictive though, when I have the time to play it.

Office 2: Volume to low, bluetooth off, wi-fi off, GPS off. For when I am not listening to music.
Office 3: Volume to silent. (posted on the door jam to my office, to hit on my way out of the office for a meeting.)
Entrance to Home: Bluetooth off, Wi-fi on, volume to max.
Kitchen: Browser to allrecipes.com, screen timeout set to 5 minutes. (for cooking, screen is on longer so I don't have to touch the phone with food on my hands)
Nightstand: Volume to low, back-up alarm set, night clock mode started.
Hah! that is so awesome I love it

NFC should be updated soon I'm hoping to provide some more functionality. As of now it can't toggle GPS (crazy I think) and change screen timeout settings. The only things I see you want to do that it can't presently do. It does have this section for launching a custom task under "applications" but I have not figured that one out yet!

Hmm, yeah don't see why GPS can't be toggled, although to be honest, leaving it on 100% has a miniscule affect on the battery. THe screen timeout thing is a bummer, maybe I can find a work-around for that, as it would be so convenient to be able to adjust that. Although I would probably need a second tag to revert back to my standard setting nearby too come to think of it.

NFC task launcher also has the ability to create 2 tasks/profiles with one tag, that might really come in handy for you. The first time it reads is task/profile1 and the second time you read is task/profile2. Somehow it alternates reads in a 1-2-1-2 order. idk how but it works!

And you are right on with the GPS. When an app isn't calling for it I don't think it uses any battery at all

Nice! Yeah that will save me a few tags. Is there a time limit to the switching that you have seen?

Nope! Just 1st read when you set the phone down, and the next time you set the phone down on it it will do the second read and so on back and forth

Good afternoon! Been busy at work, swinging the sword of justice, but I wanted to give an update on a couple of things:

1) NFC - finally got my tags working SO well. I simply could not get NFC Launcher to load multiple apps the way I wanted them. I finally installed Tasker (I hadn't used it in quite a while.) It works VERY well with NFC Launcher! I pretty much now just do my programming of the tag in Tasker, and simply have the launcher run the Tasker task.

For example - I have a Tasker task called "car dock." It:
  • sets my screen to never time out (can't do that with NFC Launcher)
  • loads Pandora in the background (and starts it to streaming)
  • sets my phone to "car dock mode." (I had no idea our Nexi even had that mode...I never ran across it in the settngs.) This is nice because when it's in that mode, and I presss the 'home' key, it goes to my car dock program. FYI - Car Home Ultra is a GREAT car dock app!
  • Loads my navigation app, and that is on top, asking me for the destination.
I temporarily taped the tag to my car dock, to be sure it would work fine, and it does.

I also have a tag for when I work in my home office. It stops the keyguard, sets screen timeout for 90 seconds (you can't do this with NFC Launcher, Antimony), loads Pandora to start streaming, loads my phone app (exDialer), and finally, pops up a message to start working.

LOVING these NFC tags!!! If you like using them, I'd strongly encourage you to try out Tasker. I didn't care that much for it before, as it wasn't that intuitive, I didn't think. However, with the NFC tags able to run a "task", it's easy to program whatever you want your phone to do in Tasker, then have a tag to run it. (for example, I also have a tag to turn OFF Pandora and stop the car dock mode, via Tasker, can't do that via NFC Launcher.)

I've communicated some with the dev for NFC Launcher. Very nice guy. However, that app will not currently do what Tasker will do, especially concerning the multiple apps. Thus, Tasker takes his program and makes it a REALLY useful app!

2) My dad and I are working on a desk dock. The same day I got Nessie, I knew I wanted to make a dock for it. I want something that will be appropriate sitting on a professional desk, be it a lawyer's office, accountant's office, or even looking nice on a nightstand. I'm curious how many people would be interested in one of these? We don't have plans to use the pogo pins, as we want the dock to be accept virtually any case. Instead, it'll probably come with a 6' USB charging cable. Right now, we're looking at a wooden dock, probably made from contrasting hardwoods, such as maybe walnut and maple, or cherry and hickory, etc.

We just found out yesterday that my dad is going to have shoulder surgery, so that may set us back a bit, or may actually move us forward. He has the woodworking equipment needed to do this type of thing (I do woodturning, thus my name.)

He did make a stand for the DX, and my son and stepson got the only 2 stands he produced (sheeesh...I never got one...lol), and they are both very techy and very particular about their phones, and LOVE their stands.

Anyway, I don't want to say anything else, as I don't want to violate any type of spam rules, unless the mods say it's ok.

Now, back to work!

Definitely going to have to check out Tasker to integrate with NFC Launcher tasks.

Also regarding GPS -- I recommend that everyone leave it on. GPS is only used/polled when an application requests it, otherwise it is not on in the background at all. Its so easy to leave on and use when an app needs it than to have to toggle it on when you know you're going into a GPS intensive application.

Also another shot edited with the Flickr app.

i am not into 4.0.3 yet, until i can see all the final details that Google is releasing to us is out (although it should be to much different form the source coding that is out now) and see how VZW screws it up but for this any 4.0.2 ROM or a rooted stock "should" work haha

BTW updates for 4.0.3 and beyond will not be going through Verizon. Just not sure why we see 4.0.3 in AOSP but not on the Nexus yet.

So I tried the "battery saving measure" of turning of my google talk on the Nexi today.....and battery usage is much better.

For those of you using AOKP....could someone post(or send me) a pic of the Android OS usage (i guess it would only be comparable if you use the gtalk app??)? I am really disappointed that I cannot have the GTalk app open all the time on a google phone (yet)....unless I want to charge my phone several times a day. Probably going to be using AOKP or ME2 as of this evening, just curious if I am going to run into the same issue if I want that particular app running all the time.

Not necessary... this is a vzw branded phone and all software has to go through them before we get it
and we haven't seen the 4.0.3 released yet because (the last i herd) Google was still working on the awake bug that is affecting 99% of us and it is even effecting the AOSP on 4.0.3... there was a news story on this a while back on phandroid maybe 3 weeks ago and that still seams to be the story

I wonder why that would be. AFAIK, GTalk is a push app so it's not doing anything (such as polling) between message notifications from Google's servers. Did you also turn off Mobile Network?

I just flashed AOKP and the Nova Launcher (as well as iso's lean kernel). With my current combination is there any way to hide the notification bar? I'm messing around with my homescreen setup...

not sure if you guys saw this...

Galaxy Nexus vs. Xperia Ion: Which Has The Quicker Camera?

i've told my friends/fam several times over christmas that i wish i had this feature. or could enable it somehow (ROM feature or app, perhaps). zero-shutter lag is great, but if i wanna take a quick pic... it definitely takes a few seconds to get to the camera. and many times, the moment has passed.

i mean there is not much in difference in the base so it shouldn't be to hard to actually switch it over i just don't want to develop for something that can have a huge change in it before the final version is released that may have to cause me to start it over and all not being that experienced yet

and if you wanted to test you ndroid flash a 4.0.2 and then the kernel and see where it goes like i said it will not be a daily user yet so it wont be more then an hour or so if you still want to test it out

Although not the end-all solution, if I think I will be in a situation where I might need the camera quickly, I make sure to turn on the camera before hand and then turn the screen off. With the camera already on in the background, it pops up much quicker when you slide the lockscreen to the camera icon. The con is that the camera is running in the background which probably eats into your battery life. But still a good compromise to get me through my son's football game or cub scout meeting...

Nope. The only thing I did was sign out of GTalk on the phone. I don't think it has been specifically identified as to what part of GTalk (if it is even GTalk....I can only speak from what my phone is doing) is affecting the battery life/Android OS so much.
Problem is, I can never remember to turn it back on when I leave for home, or work, etc....I hope the NFC Tags may help with that later....






I am at 8hrs on and at 55% discharging. A HUGE improvement over the last several days/weeks

this is typically about the same battery usage i get, i use gtalk prob once a day. never sign in. never sign out.

unless it's part of AndroidOS, i've never seen it come up on my batt usage.

If you are referring to the toggles in the notification shade, that is part of AOKP.

Okay, stupid question here: Is 24% for Android OS even remotely normal? On my Rez running Gingerbread my Android OS is invariably 2-3% and I don't think it's ever gone above 6-7% no matter what I'm doing. Is ICS so different, or is there something particular about the Nexus that it keeps the OS so busy?

i see your point, and prob works for a lot of people. but if i know i'm going to be somewhere i wanna take pictures... i'll take my DSLR. my typical use case of my phone's camera is for instances where i wasn't planning to take pictures, or i'm out and wanna grab a quick shot among friends. if you've taken a walk or been out with your kids/nephews/nieces/etc and wish you could have taken the picture quicker, this is exactly the feature i'd like to have.

when i think about phone cameras, i don't necessarily want the greatest specs. i want the best features and usability. i realize this has nothing to do with your point, but i never understood the arguments for choosing a phone solely based on the specs of the camera. /rant
