Pay the Developers - they work hard and deserve the small price they ask in return for great service
Sent from my Droid
It always surprises me that people will pay $7 for a fancy beer without thinking twice, but will spend hours of their life trying to find a pirated app rather than just pay the dev for their work. The developer is very reasonable in that he will let you have a 7 day trial if you download it from his website, and he'll even reduce the price if you buy it straight from him. You wont get that from a lot of paid apps on the market.
Speaking of the trial, I am still on mine and i have one profile i want to create before i decide if this app will do what i want to accomplish. at 6pm every night, i want to change the settings of the android email app ( not the gmail app) to increase the synchronization time of my exchange email, from 'push' to '15 minutes'. I haven't figured out how to do this yet. Anybody have some advice?

I recently purchased Tasker and was wondering where can I find the best tutorial for maximizing the possibilities this app has to offer. I admit I played with it but need an explanation on some of the features and procedural processes. I am by no way a computer expert but no dummy either. I just could use an "Owners manual" for lack of a better term. Thanks for any help you guys can offer
You can view the UserGuide within the app; Info -> UserGuide
Wiki can be found here: Profiles - Tasker Wiki
Thanks for the post. I used the wiki link which was very helpful and was able to successfully program 3 task or context. With their step by step examination's it helped me get going. I still have a ways to go but I'm getting there thanks so much for your help
Just a quick hint. Locale is another similar app. It is much easier to understand, but it can't do nearly as much as Tasker. The good news is that it is extensible with plugins. The bad news is that most of the plugins are paid apps too, so you wind up spending a whole lot more for the ease of use.
Now, the really good news: Tasker can use most, if not all Locale plugins, so for the very few things that Locale can do that Tasker can't, Tasker actually can, or for complex things in Tasker, there may be a plugin to make it easier.
For instance, I change my Google Voice settings (which phones to ring, and whether I want to screen calls or not) based on my location. This could be done in Tasker with the HTTP tasks, but would be very complex. I just use the Google Voice plugin for Locale and it is a piece of cake.
I too am struggling a bit with the complexity of Tasker and am still using Locale for many things, but I am slowly migrating over as I figure things out.
Another great source of info and a great way to get help is over at the Tasker groups: http://groups.google.com/group/tasker
