Embiggen with Tasker

Embiggen user Tim just asked me if there was a way to use Tasker with Embiggen, and it turns out there is. Lets say we wanted to have the contents of a text message show up in Embiggen when you get a text message. Here’s what you do:

  1. Create a profile that listens for an incoming text message (New profile -> Event -> Phone -> Received Text)
  2. Create a new Send Intent task with the following settings:

Extra:
Text:%SMSRB

Package:
com.briercan.embiggen
(com.briercan.embiggenplus if you’re using Embiggen Plus)

Class:
com.briercan.embiggen.BigWordsActivity
(com.briercan.embiggenplus.BigWordsActivity if you’re using Embiggen Plus)

It should look something like this:

If you want to show different text for the app, just use a different variable in the Extras field instead of %SMSRB. For example, if you want the name of the person who texted you, put the following in the Extras field:

Text:%SMSRF

I hope this helps! Post a comment if you have any questions or if you have a good idea for how to use Tasker with Embiggen!
