Yeah I figured. I took a peek at it at the Play store and sure enough it fits your description. It reminds me of an app I use to use for the BB called BBRobot. Best app ever, I'll have to give Tasker a try.

EDIT: For some reason I tried it out today and it's not working..... gotta check all my settings to see what I missed.....
That would be very cool. I might pick up tasker just because of it's features but I would like to see an APK built that kicks off the Dropsync app.


I have another question. If you use Tasker to either run AutoRemote to kick off a remote sync or do a local update, what happens when one device is not on the network? Which device is responsible for completing the task.... is that left up to Foldersync?
