Has anyone heard of this? I've just started putting together instructions for it.

It's an android app by microsoft which allows you to set up "recipes" in JavaScript to program your phone to recognise events and respond with behaviours, examples being "When one of my contacts calls during a meeting, txt them with 'I'm in a meeting'" or "When my battery reaches 15% txt my wife 'My battery is about to die'" or "When I am driving, turn bluetooth on and connect to my car" or "When I am within 200 metres of a location FourSquare identifies as 'mexican food' and it is the evening, alert me."

Seems like it could be made to do some pretty handy stuff and you don't need to know how to write the recipes, you can give existing recipes your own conditions to customise them.

It allows you to link into any of the events generated by android apps?

That + Grindr = Real life Gaydar.
May you find your worth in the waking world

You are a genius.  However, anyone who has seen a gay bar in full Grindr mode can tell you that's not always necessary.

Hmmm that sounds cool! Unfortunately I ran out of money before I upgraded my phone (student life is balls) so it'll be a while.
