Tasker is the ‘go to’ app for Android automation, but its interface is not exactly the most user friendly. If the learning curve seems a bit steep, Automagic will also do the trick quite nicely…as will several other apps.
Cheap shot I know. Sorry I couldn’t resist. Not aimed at you personally.
My wanted app: One that lets me uninstall the Android & phone company built-in apps that are crapware without needing to root the damn phone to do it. And which precludes them being included as updates later.
Can I borrow it after you’re done? Some days I really need that help.
Actually you’ve got the makings of a really cool idea there.
The folks who do commentary at ball games have experts with databases speaking factoids into their headsets. Which the commentators then relay to us, making it sound like they’re channeling a Wikipedia full of personal experience and expertise.
Joe Awkward goes on a date. He’s nervous and desperate. He wears his Bluetooth headset and the whole time he’s there on his date with hapless Jane he’s also got the Siri-whatever in his phone istening to them both chit-chat.
It’s using its massive online Watson-like knowledge of human interaction to provide live real-time coaching into Joe’s ear. So he says the right things to Jane, not the dorky things. And of course the Relationship-O-Matic is learning from every person on every date it rides along on. Thousands every day.
It could even have different modes: Sensitive New Age Guy, Roid raging PUA, or Texas pickup-trucker* for the guys. Damsel in Distress, the Crazy wants your body, Librarian by day / cougar by night, red-headed cowgirl kicks your weak citified ass for the gals. And as many more as human imagination can come up with.
The possibility for profit is endless.

Q: What’s Texas-style foreplay?
A: ‘Git in the truck, bitch!’
