Profile Flow: A Tasker Alternative
By now, we’re all quite familiar with Tasker, the personal automation app that seems to be able to do anything that you’d ever want your smartphone or tablet to ever do. XDA-Developer TV even has a thorough video series of this monumental app. Then not long after, XDA-Developer TV took a look at Llama, a free alternative to Tasker, with a pretty much similar variety of functions as Tasker. Well today, we’ll have a look at Profile Flow by XDA Forum Member amithgc.
As a free alternative to Tasker, Profile Flow enables you to control almost all aspects of your Android device based on either a set date, time period, or day. Presented with a clinical Holo user interface, the app is easy to navigate with its simplicity and sliding tabs that display a quick overview of possible tasks, current profiles, statistics, and a history of profile changes. As a free version, possible tasks are surprisingly quite non-restrictive allowing for the major aspects of your device such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Autosync, and Ringtone among many others, to be automated with the app. Profiles can be arranged according to priority, and can also be duplicated and edited once created. Amithgc has also implemented a ‘Lite profile’ feature, which execute set tasks without switching and disturbing the currently active profile. New users would also appreciate a handy little guide that describes the app and provides an overview of its functions.
Amithgc developed a well polished app that may prove to be quite a good and free alternative for Tasker. It presents itself in a non-complicated way that many users of Tasker or Llama may appreciate, especially with their daunting user interfaces for new users. Profile Flow is compatible with Android versions 2.2 and newer, and is free from the Play store. So if this has gotten you interested, make sure to check out the application thread for more information.
