    Hi everyone, have been using Llama for about 3 years. I recently switched phones, from a Galaxy S4 to an LG G4. I'm also now on Android ver. 6.0.
    I copied my settings over to the new phone, but Llama just doesn't seem to work on a regular basis.
    Simple things like time based actions, like "turn phone to silent at 22.00" just don't seem to work, where on my previous phone it worked flawlessly.

    I'm sensing there's an issue with Android 6.0 somehow and possibly the doze mode built into the OS?
    Has anybody else noticed this?

    I also switched from a Galaxy (S3) to the G4, now on Marshmallow. I'm sorry to say that most of the functionality I'd come to rely on in Llama expired with the upgrade. I've had to switch to Tasker, which is much more powerful and commensurately complicated. Because the "programing" used to make the apps work is different, there was a lot to learn. And being unable to root the G4 leaves out some key functions, like toggling the GPS or NFC, but overall, I'm happy with Tasker.

    I'm using llama on my S6 and I love it. The only issue I have is I've set it to launch either Waze or Maps app. They launch fine when I leave home, and seem to be visually navigating fine, but I get no audio voice on either, yet other audio notifications work. Is this a cell tower vs GPS issue?

    Have you tried the latest version from the developer Web page... It includes some fixes for lollipop...

    Hi all,
    I have the following problem:
    my smartphone was repaired and the lab done a factory reset without informing me of this. I haven't a backup and now I dont' remember how my llama profile was configured.
    I need one profile that:

    When I'm outdoor (no at home and no at work zones)
    switch off wifi (this is simple)
    every 10 minutes
    switch bluetooth on
    check if "my car bluetooth" is on and connect to it --> ELSE switch bluetooth off
    when disconnected from "my car bluetooth" (leaving the car) switch bluetooth off
    switch mobile data on for 1 minutes --> THEN switch mobile data off

    Does anyone can help me, or pointing me to any post with similar examples ?

    many thanks
    Davide

    Help please with LlamaTones!

    I want a certain Profile to use a certain ringtone when activated. (Mainly because the vibrate on my phone is broken so want to set up something in lieu of Vibrate)
    I've got a very discrete ringtone set in Lamatones, but can't get it to ring whenProfile is active. The default ringtone rings instead.
    Even at lowest vol setting, this is too loud. I want a gentle nudge ringtone when this profile is active.

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    You don't have to change a llamatone, you have to change the ringtone in the profile itself. You can even set the volume of it.

    You have to select them in Noisy contacts in the profile settings.

    I want to do something with variables and I can't find a good way to do it. I want to set some variables at Llama startup. Why? I have a phone, a WiFi Android tablet and a WiFi+4G Android tablet, and all three use about 90% of the Llama Events I create, but there are some custom just for certain devices that are irrelevant to others, or even annoying (like opening some apps that are irrelevant to the Wifi tablet that only ever lives at home). I just edit one Llama app that I export and put in Dropbox, and then download and import to the other two, but then I end up having to manually go through the list and shut some Events off. I'd rather just set a couple of variables in one place, and have the Events that are just for one or two devices check the variables as a Condition.

    I would...
    group all events into 4; used by all devices, only used by phone, only used by tablet 1, only used by tablet 2.
    On each device, disable the whole groups except the ones used on the device. Easy.

    Never mind... I was looking too narrowly. I can use the "Phone Reboot" Condition, which of course is really when Llama starts up after the phone starts up. Now if I could just automatically determine that it's 4G capable or an actual phone vs. tablet I'd be golden. I'm working on it....

    Well, I tried taking a different tack, but it's not working. I figure if I just make Conditions for "Mobile Data Enabled" and "Mobile Data Disabled" to set a variable 4G=1 or 4G=0 that should work (won't need my check-in app popping up if my Mobile Data is turned off, likely). However, on my US-made Verizon Wireless phone, it apparently doesn't think Mobile Data is on when it's on. *sigh*.

    Why don't you rely on variables to be what allows a particular event or not. Then, in your events, require specific variables. Manage the entire application as a singular whole, but set the variables to hard-coded values per device. Yes, you'll have to do this each time you import a new version of the exported app, but it should be fairly easy to do.

    Hi,

    does anyone knows how to get Waze ETA and send it via SMS or Gmail?

    I found out it can be done with tasker (but for Google maps) , as detailed here: https://gist.github.com/whiteinge/4429633

    But i don't have the knowledge to import it to LLama, if possible.

    Any insight will be appreciated

    I don't think you can import anything Tasker into Llama.
    Your link uses Google maps API to calculate distance and duration. Don't see Waze mentioned anywhere.
    You should be able to access Google maps API to get your ETA without Tasker.
    Then it's just a matter of putting that output in a message and send it.
    I am not big on sending any kind of messages automatically, so I am not 100% sure if it can be done with or without Llama.
    But I am guessing that you can simply use Android standard send intent to do so.
    I am not sure at this moment if Llama can pass the ETA to it's intent action or send sms action in form of Llama variable.
    If not, just write a short script and run that with Llama (or with anything else you like).

    An alternative is to just use Tasker.
    I am not a Tasker user, but if it only takes to import what other people have made already,
    using Tasker doesn't seem to be so difficult or complex in any way as many say.

    Another question: your know you can speak up variable values by putting the name between double hashtag (##variablename##).

    Do you know if the same can be done on another actions, like sending SMS or emails? I've tried several combinations but with no luck do far

    I only vaguely remember others have also "wished" Llama expands variable in its SMS action (meaning, it doesn't).
    I myself don't use Llama to send any message so I never looked into it, but if the dev didn't include that function then it doesn't. Period.
    It seems to me however, since Llama won't be able to request ETA from G maps on its own anyway, it doesn't matter whether Llama expands variables in SMS. Much of the job needs to be done using a script and the only role Llama could play is to run the script when you want it to.

    To some people, writing scripts can be fun. But if you just want your phone to do something specific and if someone else already made it in Tasker, just use Tasker.
    It's much easier.

    Did you ever see this behavior?
    I have an event which changes my screen timeout to 240 sec when specific applications are running (for example Tapatalk).
    When I change in settings of my phone my screen timeout to never or different time and turn on Tapatalk, my screen timeout Llama change to 30 sec not to 240 sec. It happens every time, and I don't know what to do. Other events I have turn off.

    Yesterday I tried Tasker and then uninstalled it. Could it be the reason for this behavior?

    Are you using the latest beta from the developer's web site?
    Android lollipop (and up probably) prevent apps from lookIng at app usage in the way it used to be done. So app in front/back condition may not work properly.
    Try the beta if you haven't.

    Yesterday I tried Tasker and then uninstalled it. Could it be the reason for this behavior?
    Don't know what you did in Tasker, so can't say.

    I installed latest version of application and nothing changed. But I found out, when I deleted event and create new one the same, everything is working well. I don't understand it. ☺
