Android people: Can you help me with Tasker?
I’m trying to get into Tasker, because it seems potentially awesome, but I have no clue how to do anything on it. For starters, my initial UI looks different than most visual tutorials. Most seem to have these text icons at the bottom that go Cancel, Apply, New, Tasks, On. But mine has this icon only thing at the bottom (that also has an extra icon in there to confuse you). And I don’t know how to change this. It’s like I got a slightly different version of Tasker than everyone else… :(
Also, I’m trying to follow these instructions for getting home. But, having never created a successful profile (or task? Thingy. That thing where you make it in anyway do something successful.) before, I’m very confused. I tried two different ways of doing it, one where I pressed the plus sign first (and then had to tell it Application context twice…?), and then the second time I pushed the Tasker icon instead, and that seemed to make more sense following the directions on that link, except that then it doesn’t show up.
I’ve tried looking for various beginners tutorials, but I can’t really find any that aren’t a) a bit more intermediate than beginners and b) totally without icons or graphics, so I still am not sure I’m pressing the right button. So, if you have any, that’d be awesome.
ETA: What is a “profile”? How is it different from a task, and how is it anything other than the opening screen?
