    I used PhoneAlarm to do my call forwarding when I was on the "other" platform. It dialed my call forwarding number based on time of day. I know Locale has the capability but there is no plugin to do it. Does ANYONE have an App or know how I can call forward based on location or time of day or to at least call any number based on this criteria? I do not, or I should say, cannot use Google Voice since I have no account and they are not taking any more users.

    Tasker can do this. Unfortunately the current version (beta) has been removed from distribution while the developer works on an update. When the next version is available, you can download it from here:

    Dinglisch Forums - Tasker - Beta Testers

    In the "Current Version" thread.

    You know I have been looking all over the net for something to do this for the last month. The only thing I want the phone to do at a certain time of the day dial *72. On my CE device I used something call PhoneAlarm which worked great.

    I am a Taxi Cab Driver, we normally answer calls over the radio, but you are pegged in the order you key up on the mic, now I might be 4th out, that means 3 other cab drivers are in front of me, now that means I will be sitting on my ass until those 3 cab drivers get a call first, now that is the fair and square way the taxicab world opporates, now we are allowed to give our phone numbers to the customers and run calls from our phone if we want, the problem with this is that eventually you will have SO many personal contacts after about 3 weeks that your phone will be ringing every minute, this makes it dangerous when you are driving, also you then answer the phone and they tell you there address and you relize you are too far away.
    What I need is this, after about 1 month you will have 300+ contacts, I need to be able to see the address of the caller when they are calling, such as instead of saving there number in my rolodex as there name I can save it as under there address, now when it rings I will see the address and if I am not close to it I can chose who to forward the call to, such as another driver that I KNOW is very close, or to just forward the call to the cab company, so that my personal contacts will have a much better chance of getting a cab much faster by calling me directly and if I am not avalible close enough to it I can click a button on my screen that will forward the call to choices that I have already set up, thus having a happy customer and will call ME again in the future when they need a cab and not the cab company causing me to wait in line. ( An app like this will allow me to infiltrait veteran cab drivers territories and choke them out thus making more money and controling the territory my self )
    I will pay big bucks for an app that will do this.
    Even better I can see additional information that I previously entered such as average cab fair and other info such as if they smell bad or not, or potentually dangerous and not safe to pic this person up at night, all this info will be GOLDEN in choosing to answer it or forward it.

    EVEN BETTER:
    The app also uses your phones GPS to tell you the distance and time it will take to get to there house when the address is saved in your phone, now I can say: hello Ms. Gertrude, yes I can be there in about 8 minutes.

    EVEN BETTER:
    Click a button on the screen that says GO, that will GPS navigate me to there house.

    EVEN BETTER ( THE ULTIMATE ):
    Have my contact list automatically saved to webspace on the net every 5 min or specified by me, then another cabdriver with a android phone running the same app will auto update the contact every 5 min or specified so he will see the contact info name and address and other info instead of just the phone number when I forward the call to him, you could call this app the TAXICAB Infiltraitor.

    You might want to start your own thread for this request, instead of pasting the same message to threads dealing with different issues. Also, you might want to hit up more developer-oriented Android forums or mailing lists.

    I came across you blog when I was searching for an app that does call forwarding based on location and/or time. I found an app that is called iForward that does forward your calls to a fixed line automatically once you show up in a certain location. The app recognizes the location by identifying a wifi network. So you can actually create an event when you arrive home or enter your office, etc. Let me know if this is helpful
