Automate your phone with QR codes!

AutoBarcode is a Tasker plugin that allows you to completely automate your phone with QR Codes. Simply scan a code (generate one here http://goo.gl/JBLg7 ) and react to it in Tasker any way you like!

(WARNING: TASKER IS AN ANDROID APP THAT AUTOMATES TASKS ON YOUR PHONE. THIS FEATURE ONLY WORKS WITH TASKER INSTALLED)
Note: AutoBarcode uses a Barcode Scanner installed on your phone. If no compatible scanner is found, it will open Android Market so you can download "Barcode Scanner" ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.zxing.client.android ) for free.

Very simple example: open Tasker and create a new profile with an AutoBarcode condition (State->plugin->AutoBarcode). To start out, check the Event checkbox and leave everything else blank. Then associate it with a task that simply flashes "Hello World!". After this run the AutoBarcode app and scan any QR Code with it. This should make  "Hello World!" flash on your screen!

With AutoBarcode you have advanced matching options and even a flexible command system (see how it works here: http://goo.gl/PRQas) that allows you to truly personalize your experience.

Here are some examples on how you can use AutoBarcode:

- AutoBarcode is the Quickest way to let Tasker know you're at a specific place if there's no wifi or you don't want or can't use wifi (work, car, specific bedroom in your home). For example, have a QR code ready on your car's dashboard. When you get there, just scan the code, and Tasker can start playing your favorite songs with the volume turned way up, while opening google maps to show you the way.

- Create QR codes that enable or disable specific settings on your phone: turn off sound, enable blutooth, enable wifi when you get to work, etc..

- Use with AutoShortcut ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.joaomgcd.autoshortcut ) and Winamp ( https://market.android.com/details?id=com.nullsoft.winamp ) to have fast access to your favorite playlists: have specific playlists at work, in your living room, in your bedroom, in your kid's bedrooms, in your car, etc

- Suprise your friends with your talking phone: generate QR codes and follow the instructions here: http://goo.gl/JBLg7

- Create a Scavenger hunt for your kids by spreading out QR codes with hints and clues on how to find the next one, by playing songs, videos, opening popups or webpages in tasker (or anything else you want!)

- Propose marriage in a cool and geeky way

By combining the power of QR Codes and Tasker you can do this and much, much more.

    I emailed the dev about an issue a few weeks ago and I've been told the app will be updated within a few days with a fix for my problem. Similarly, my review will be updated in a few days.

    I didn't get it to work right away (I expected Barcode Scanner to launch AutoBarcode for me instead of me launching AutoBarcode directly), but the dev was quick to respond to my mail. So 5 stars for the App and the dev, and 0 stars to the Google User who

    Licensing check does not work properly when offline. I am getting repeated notifications about using the lite version. The whole point of having the app is to use it offline.

    This does nothing. I've tried their example tasks(goo.gl url). They don't work.
