Tasker Plugin to automate start/stop of rides on Android
Tasker is an app that allows for automation of your phone. Some apps create plugins that work with Tasker to allow for the app to change settings based on conditions. A Tasker plugin would allow a Strava user to start or end recording of a ride based on conditions the phone can read, such as wifi state, touching an NFC tag, etc.
An example of how this would work: I put an NFC tag on my bicycle and program it to execute a Tasker profile which has Tasker start recording my ride. Another profile stops the recording when my phone connects to my home wifi. Thus my Strava ride is automated to the point where just running my phone over a sticker lets me record the ride.
