    I give this a 5 star first but because of the sensitivity of the orientation sensor it doesn't work flawless, if I hold the phone tilted the phone changes to ``face up´´ even if its only 80% flat (tilted 20% in my hand). It would be great if you could use the heartbeat sensor or camera as well to sense if the phone is laying on a table or if its dark. But I dont know if thats possible?

    I want to change keyboards when tasker is running but the tasker app doesn't appear in the app selection list. I know you're not the tasker dev but do you know why this is and if there's a way around it?

    About finding out the exact orientation in this thread, how am I suppose to change the first guide with the updated info from the thread with the better method?

    In the other thread, the screen on was a trigger, and in this first guide, the face up was the trigger. But since the "face up" is better substituted with another method, I don't know how to trigger it..

    Thanks.

    This is how i did, used Display orientation "face up" from the original tutorial as trigger. It seems to work as i want it to now, but the sensor that gets the orientation of the phone is some what slow, does not respond as fast as i would like to changed orientation of the phone.

    The sensor in my phone (S7 edge) that sense which orientation the phone is held is responding very slow I have noticed, if I move the phone from laying flat (90 degrees) to standing up (0 degrees) it does not go from 90 -> 0 directly, it takes small steps - 90, 86, 82, 78, 72, 68 and so on down to 0 (I checked this by running the task over and over when turning the phone slowly).

    This makes the keyboard change quite slow and also it wont response quick enough if I go from 90 degrees -> 40 and then directly back from 40 -> 90.. I didn't think so much of this in the beginning but the more I use it the more this bothers me.

    Do you have any idea how to solve this @joaomgcd ?

    unfortunately I don't @snej81 . If you just use a flash action in this profile instead of changing the keyboard, does the flash take a long time to appear as well?

    I notice this does not work in every instance. For example, if composing a new SMS, voice keyboard pops up great. However, my normal keyboard pops up when composing a new email in gmail app or when opening Google app to conduct a search.
