NFC & Tasker Help
I hope this is the right section for this, and just in case it's useful information, I'm using a Note 2.
Today I had some NFC tags arrive, and I installed Tasker over the weekend, so I'm still new to both.
I'm using Trigger (formerly NFC Task Launcher), and created a car profile - when I scan the tag it turns off WiFi, increases brightness and media volume, speaks 'Car mode enabled', and reads out my texts. When I scan it again, it puts it all back to normal and says 'car mode disabled'.
Tasker has a few tasks set up - between 11.30pm and 830am it is on mute. When I'm on my WiFi at home, my PIN is disabled, and enabled when I'm away from my WiFi. I have a shortcut on my homescreen to a camera, which doesn't open the camera but just takes a photo immediately, for those moments when you need the shot straight away. I also have a task that when I insert headphones, Poweramp starts.
I would like to make a couple of changes though and I'm stuck on how to do it, so would really appreciate some help.
1) Using Tasker. When I insert headphones I want it to give me the option of music apps (namely Poweramp and TuneIn Radio). How can I do this?
2) Also with Tasker, when my phone is on mute overnight, how can I add specific people to a white list so that if a family member calls at 3am, which is likely an emergency, it rings at normal volume?
3) Is it possible to add to my existing Trigger 'car mode' task to take a location point when I switch it off? So I get in the car, hit the tag, and then when i reach my destination and hit it again to disable car mode, can it take a location point? If so, where would it store it for me to find my car in an unfamiliar place?
