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.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
