Tasker Context & Action
As described above, Tasker operates as an "If" statement where if X happens, Y will result. The way this is setup through Tasker is by assigning a "First Context" (X) and then the "Action" (Y). Under the First Context menu, pictured to the left, the options are application, time, day, location, state, or event. Each context contains its own set of options underneath, and they are quite numerous. Once the context has been selected the action is next to be decided. The action menu, pictured right, has 14 categories consisting of: Alert, App, Audio, Dialog, Display, Encrypt (not in market version), File, Media, Misc, Network, Phone, Tasker, Variables, and 3rd party. Again each of these selections contains a myriad of choices underneath. It cannot be said enough that Tasker brings an amazing amount of choice and variety to Android phones.
