I got this versatile android app called Tasker. I've read reviews and posts on this forum but I am still learning how to be up to speed with it. I've read that so many people successfully use the Cell Near functionality... unfortunately I can't find any example of pattern matching within Cell Near. Scanning with Tasker I get something like: Code (Text): GSM:1121.10893545 / 10 My understanding is that: 1121 is the cell tower ID 10893545 is the last seen signal strength 10 is the currently connected cell I am able to trigger a pattern match using Code (Text): GSM:1121.10893545 / * Unfortunately the last seen signal strength changes so often that the actual match rarely happens. I also tried the matches: Code (Text): GSM:1121.* / * GSM:1121.+ GSM:1121.* but the debug log always says Code (Text): cell seen GSM:1121.<current_signal_strength> wanted <my_pattern> Now... anyone is actually using this state to trigger tasts? What pattern match are you using?
