    Well this is vexing. Several months ago, I came across an Adroid app that allowed you to program macros, system-wide. You change all kinds of system settings and programs at certain times and situations - like have it dim the screen at a time of the night, whatever.

    Now I have lost the name of the app, and am absolutely unable to find it be google or Marketplace.

    Anybody know about this? It sounds fantastic.

    I think you are talking about Tasker.

    Tasker for Android

    If you get it from the web site instead of the market you get a one week resetable trial.

    It's more than I need, though I played around with it for about a week. I think Ann from the Garmin forum here uses it. All reports I have heard praise this app quite heartily. Steep learning curve, but very powerful. That's why, hoping you have side-loading, I recommend getting it from the website so you can have a long trial. It offers a 7 day trial and you can keep resetting it until you are ready to buy.
