Reviews From google play store

Android is a great operating system with a LOT going for it. Tasker helps take that to the next level. I would never run a phone without Tasker. Multiple profiles, depending on whether I am at work (volumes lowered), in the car (volumes at maximum) or at home (volumes in the middle) let me not miss calls or have my ears blown off from a high volume.

As others have mentioned, it can be a bit of a learning curve, but once you've got your head round Tasker, it's brilliant. I've tried other automation apps, but they're not as good. The possibilities are endless with Tasker, especially with root access. I've automated the mundane things, like putting my phone on silent when I get to work. I've also had a little fun, like when I got my mums phone to speak "your favourite son has just text you", every time I sent her a message. She saw the funny side, until she forgot to put her phone on silent in a conference. Oops!

Tasker takes a bit of learning, but you can do a lot with it. What's really nice though, is the quick response and useful help you get when you request help from the author! I really recommend the program as long as you are able and willing to do some programming. As an example, I get so many Spam calls now a days. So, I made a program to block calls from everyone who isn't in my contact. With my own program, I don't have to worry about privacy issues from sharing things with vendor's servers. (Some apps ask you to share why you block the phone numbers you block in their apps.)

This sounds cliché, but in my mind, Tasker will always be the best app for android. I tinkered a lot and it woke my interest in programming logic. It has helped me automate soo many things that would have been annoying if not impossible to do manually. The possibilities are endless, honestly, it's like being a kid in a sandbox with all the tools (and google search) available. The best few Euros I have ever spent, including the 2,99€ for yesterday's lunch sandwich. Joao, thank you for Tasker!

Very good app, I use it to automate several tasks. Update: the calendar topic disappeared after a week and it is working again. Maybe it was an android topic.

Although this app definitely has a learning curve, it's one of the best apps ever made. For the price per functionality, this is a steal. And not to mention the great dev. He will get back to you no matter what and has helped me out a bunch. I would 100% recommend.

Great app and great support. Thank you! Can't enable/disable nfc on Xperia running Pie. When I try to add it it says that permissions are not enabled yet, and then switches to permission screen. But permission is already enabled. Yes, that was it!! ':D

great automation tool... on my samdung s7... but since migrating to a Huawei p20 pro, it keeps disappearing from the background apps and i hsve to tsp uts icon in the app drawer frequently. it then keeps complsining about missing notification permissions even though it had them. any ideas? how can i help diagnose this?

If you want customize your phone to do what you want, when you want it to, then this is the app you need. In my opinion this is one of the most useful apps out there. The app is well designed, well written, and very well supported by the developer.... 5 stars is not enough...

I think the latest update brought some glitches to the WiFi Near trigger. It seems to drop off every once in awhile despite being connected to the same WiFi that is listed in the trigger Edit: "issue" was resolved by allowing Tasker to access location always. Thanks to the developer for reaching out. Always responsive.

Is it actually possible to implement all or most of your products into Tasker? I enjoy using them all. But with the new device I'm actually considering if should make if full of apps again. And without them using Tasker become more or less not fun.. So I either not gonna use Tasker or else.. Maybe you can import them in Tasker, and for users like me who wants can pay additional one time fee for unlocking them. Then we get all functionality without need of installing 10 more apps.thanks

Excellent app. If it can be done - Tasker helps you automate it! Wish I could give it 10 stars. Dev is very responsive (as is the tasker community at large).

This app is awesome. It has limitless possibilities. There are some bugs every now and then but are fixed really fast. Whoever complaints just need help with their profiles.

Extremely powerful features. Ability to automate any phone function you want, as long as it's allowed by Android OS.

Context: not-rooted. While the concept is great and some bits work as intended, it's most of the time a real hassle to work with this app and all its plugins. Unfortunately the behavior is rather erratic most of the times, and you can't really put your trust in the app even after doing everything it requires you to do, which at least for me it's a deal breaker. Thanks alphabet for doing everything harder under the hat of "security" and "user privacy".

The perfect automation app, and it can do anything you could desire it to do. Tasker is one of the reasons why Android is so much better than everything else.

Using it since my first Android phone (HTC Hero) to automate certain tasks based on context. There's always something new and the plug-in/extension support is also very useful. It may not be simple to set up the complex stuff because there are many bells and whistles but there are great tutorials and a huge community with lots of good examples. The app support is awesome and very helpful.

Amazing. You can customise everything. So far I have made tasks to make my phone have full brightness and minimum brightness, and connected them to Nova Launcher's gestures. Also I made a profile to launch the full brightness task by shaking the phone. This is helpful if I'm outside and it's very bright, and I can't see my brightness slider. Excellent app by a dedicated developer.

So pleased with this app. When I first downloaded it, it seemed a bit too difficult to use, but I sat down and actually tried it out (and read the docs, haha) and it is incredible. I am able to automate tasks so easily and essentially add new features to my phone. There are plugins you can download separately that add even more functionality. The dev is very responsive and active in the community, and new updates come in constantly. Worth every penny!

I'll try to send up my 30 minute experience. Lots of information. This becomes a problem, your constantly having to read instead of using the app. Definitely needs to be a trial period!! People don't know what they're getting into. I was directed to YouTube which was playing faded in the background with play buttons overlay and could not get rid of it. A widget was placed for my bank app in front screen. I had not done anything yet. $2.99 for a 30 minute . Good potential not laid out well. Uninst

I bought tasker as a "lets try it out" thing at first, I checked out the Reddit for Tasker and many people were saying its buggy but most of them said it was fine and working as intended, I hesitated for qutie a long time to get it but ever since I got it I have changed my perspective, I dont know how I managed without it before, I would never go back to not having it. Settings are straight forward if you know some basic of variables anything is possible with this piece of app, some permissions such as Write Secure Settings require some additional fiddling around but its not that bad. Overall its a 10/10. Some Things I use it for: Brightness Control Location Based DNB activation Wifi Control - Based on Location Microphone Mute Screen Rotation Control - Based on Apps Volume Control - Based on Apps and Time Message Control - Based on Location - Leaving work sends message etc. And there is way more to fiddle around with, slowly getting used to where the options are and how to configure each setting but its soo worth it.

I love Tasker, it's literately THE app that makes me choose Android over iOS. I've been building with it for years. It can be a little complicated to learn but you can basically transform your phone to work exactly how you want it to. I use it to get my screen extra dim at night. find and control my phone by SMS if I lose it, automatically send happy birthday texts and some network security controls over other apps, etc. etc. I just wish the UI creation tools were more polished but still A++

Pros: The app is very flexible and can do many things. The app does not require connecting to a central server to run and manage scripts. The app is very mature with an active community. Cons: Shady licensing practices. I had to buy this app twice now. I bought it years ago but it suddenly stopped working. Apparently, the program is under a new owner who will not honor older (non Google Play Store) licences. I don't need any of his new features, I just wanted my old scripts to work. Instead, I just get a nasty message saying to buy the program AGAIN! Now, when do I have to buy a third license???

This is the solution I've been looking for. I'm using Tasker to turn my old Android Tablet into a weather station. I have it set to 'kill and reopens' my weather app every 30 min. So I know the data is fresh every 30min. It keeps the screen on and backlight on. I have a second task set to change the backlight level to a low level at night. I tried using single and combinations of other automation apps......none of them worked like this one. Finding and using this app has made my month. Thank you Tasker. I love looking at my weather station now, knowing that the data is current. Thank you.

Dev personally emails you when you have issues. Overall I've got some great profiles working on this. Only negative are android's restrictions which locks out some features.

Tasker is an app with an extremely supportive developer and surprisingly expansive community. Most notably it allowed me to remap the bixby key on my Samsung Galaxy S10 to launch google assistant on a single button press. However, it primarily serves as an app for the automation of tasks on Android devices, and is most useful on non flagship phones. Because it allows you to aggregate functions onto budget phones that flagship phones have out of the box. Still, I'd recommend it for any phone.

i have a very valid complaint. Tasker is too awesome, especially when combined with IFTTT. Im getting lazier... i now use ifttt to tell alexa to turn on my tv, which tasker then completes for me, so that i dont have to pick up the tv remote control. 😂 ill give you 6 stars when tasker starts using the toilet for me. great job!

Clearly a lot can be achieved with Tasker. However, compared to other automation apps (eg. eRobot, MacroDroid) everything is *so* difficult to achieve taking 10 times more steps eg. simple countdown timer in MacroDroid is 1 step, in Tasker you have to mess around with global variables & subtractions etc. A 'movement' detection requires an additional plugin at extra cost. The additional 'Auto' plugins (at extra cost) include features omitted from Tasker itself. It's just lacking 'usability'.

Awesome.. when it works. Stuck at wait functions too often. Exit tasks triggered when display sleeps.... The list goes on. I went through the list and everything had already been as suggested. I think I may go back to an older version because I don't remember that specific bug to happen.

Needs better UI This app has great potential and I'm looking forward to use it more. The problem is that UI is very outdated and needs improvement and simplification so far it's also buggy sometimes the naming text appears at the bottom and can't get rid of it, the developer needs to learn from shortcuts on iOS and how they made their interface intuitive If this is done there is no need to use shortcuts

Gold standard of Android device automation. I can't imagine owning an Android device without Tasker.

I'm so used to it I can't even imagine using any phone that didn't allow behavior automation like Tasker allows behavior automation. Had some tasks not working with screen off after switching to Oreo (LOS 15.1), but with the Monitoring notification set to Medium (no sound) it seems fixed - everything's working again. [Looks like getting root is moved to the 'companion' app - main app just shows a passive notification about needing root, with no SuperSU popup where you can actually give it root.]

I use Tasker to automatically calculate my pay, sales, and mileage, then output it into a google spreadsheet, ready for taxes. Maybe a steep learning curve but there are tons of resources and the dev is quick to respond.

This and AdGuard are my sole reasons for sticking with Android. Must-have app.

How do you even use this thing? I see they had a beginner mode, which they helpfully removed in the last update. Attempting to make sense of this, but the fact they don't have informative UI design (for example, using the back button in top left as "done"!??) nor their own tutorial series means reading their entire manual or relying on other people for tutorials...this app is obfuscation incarnate! Thankness goodness for apps like Trigger.

The updates have introduced a language bug with the say action. It keeps saying set phrases in an American language, even though I've set it to use system language "English". Strange thing is, when I test the say task, it's initially in American, but if I run the test again , it's in the selected language I want, "English".

Little difficult to make it work because has so many features but afterwards is a piece of cake

I don't write reviews often at all, this may be my third or fourth... That being said, I've used this app for YEARS and have always loved it. I've even made a Tasker scene to remotely control a MMORPG I was botting! EXCELLENT program from an EXCELLENT developer.

Just wanted to give a bit of Iron Man's "Jarvis" feel to my phone about an year back when I first downloaded this App... Ended up digging deeper into it's functionality as the more I learned, the more I could utilize this awesome app!... This App is AMAZING! By far the BEST APPLICATION for an Android device!

Cannot switch on WiFi automatically on galaxy s8 from Android pie onwards.. Google it you'll see what I mean

This is a great app which allows lot of customization of the phone and automation of tasks without needing rooting. There are lots of tutorials on the web to help the noobies. Also great support from João Dias the developper. Basically my phone would feel naked without it! Highly recommended.

Incredible app! I've only had it for an hour and I've already been able to make some cool tasks like muting the media volume on vibrate mode (damnit OnePlus) and sending an automatic text if I don't pickup the call.

This app is more than an app, it's a learning experience to help you with automation. Personally, it's help me with intro to coding and to know what it entails. Thank you. Amazing and useful app!

Love this! Hands down my favorite Android app ever. VERY steep learning curve but once you get the hang of it, the need for this app becomes an absolute necessity you didn know you were missing out on for so long.

Unbelievably powerful automation app. It is quite a rabbit hole.

The learning curve for this app is steep, but once you get into it you'll be able to do plenty of cool stuff. It comes down to whether I regret spending money on this app, and at the end of the day I'm happy with my purchase.

There's a steep learning curve for this app, but it's so worth the effort. If you can imagine it, Tasker can do it! (*within reason)

An absolute most-have for anyone who wants to make their phone into the ultimate utility for anything you can think of.

Best phone automation app ever! For those who want to automate repeated task, this is what you must use. Off late have been exploring this a lot more and am enjoying the new list of things I can automate. Explore to no end!

With the profiles disabled it doesn't happen. The phone is rooted with magisk. I think when it reactes with tasker it happens. With the last update of magisk I have less reboots but still is happening.

The perfect tool for automating almost any aspect of your smartphone. Incredibly versatile, and the developer provides excellent support.

Great app. Pleased with my purchase. When will the release to support Android P come? Now I still can't put the phone into Mute mode.

Hello please make you app auto save actions after pressing back and make all the action stay as it is, WITHOUT THE NEED TO PRESS THE CHECKLIST BUTTON. im seriously furious, just how come a task that is i already use, several last added actions inside it VANISH, after pressing back button multiple times? i added several final actions and reediting some details to make it look atleast clean after spending 3 HOURS. just so you know your app is already complicated enough, atleast make things simple

Totally love this app. Brings out the nerd in everyone! :-) For me this is better than playing a game on my phone, just figuring out another intelligent way to automate anything.

Allows you to personalize your Android experience in countless ways. A very high quality and extremely useful app!

I had a question about setting up a task and the dev responded within a half hour and helped me until we got it right. This app does amazing things and so does the dev. Five stars!

Amazing app. Allowed me to shake my phone to turn on flashlight like i had on my old moto phone as well as send late text messages, turn on and off wifi, and so much more. Absolutely worth the price.

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Literally just got in my car, BT connected and music app launched and played... Doesn't work at all....

Solved a problem I had, I was able to set an alarm to go off on my phone during the night if I get a certain notification. Works perfectly!

Was trying to do some math that required precision, but Tasker keeps rounding off. Very annoying. Edit: Have responded via email. Edit: Issue fixed. The developer just raised the bar for customer support.

Great app. A little complicated for some. Customer service is exceptional and João Dias does a great job at responding to issues and inquiries. Highly recomment!

If I could give this app 10 stars I would. I downloaded this app and developed my first app playing with it in about 5 hours. After talking to a few key guys that I showed its functionality I am now going to turn it into an app on android. I am a dreamer and this helped me build a light funtional app that I have wanted for years. When Tasker sends me its latest trends 3 or 4 times a day its my favorite thing to read about. 10 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

i really like the app idea, but poor design. i can't figure out how to get my plug in profiles to show up. I'm trying to link join through ifttt. any help would be great. thanks

Tasker is asking notification permission and shows error that the permission is not granted for it to work properly, but i have already given the notification access and the related permissions.

I use it to change sound profiles based on wifi, 4g. So far easy to understand. The support is also fast.

Writing files appears to have broken in latest version

The developer has always offered excellent support. This app has been a huge help, and although it takes a little getting used to, it can really be worth it.

tasker is and has always been the ultimate "power tool" for Android devices.

Endless possibilities to making your phone work for you instead of against! Automate all the things!

great app that gives you control of your phone back to you. I would like developer to add future to remove the key card swipe to unlock before entering password

Not user friendly! App does not match user quide! Hard to seTup ANYTHING! give anybody who never used it b4 phone with this app and see how many hours takes to set simple thing. App verry useful but so HARD TO USE!

I just bought it to turn off my screen when it turns on at night at 100% battery charged. Been at it all day. Battery full, screen off, didn't work.

I use this to block calls from anyone not in my contact list. Awesome!

It would be nice if there's an option to hide notification when there's no activated profile.

A lot of functions have stopped working... Very disappointing.

Tasker is the best application in my opinion but for loading scenes it still feels slow on my cellphone

Already followed all instructions but tasker services will not working soon. Huawei android 9.1.0.Tasker services not working on android 9.1.0 .request refund!

One of those apps without which Android wouldn't be the same. Excellent work!

Good app. One star removed due to how unintuitive it is.

My task wouldnt be easy without tasker. Thanks dev

This last update is a failure everytime i try to import a task it shows an error saying failed no profil was found even tho am in tasks option not the lrofile one

This app is well worth it if you want to automate any task.

Possible to show the font style of codes in the Code Input Box(Javascriptlet, Run Shell) as monospace?

This app is a must have. It automates everything and stops wasting you time.

The best to automate and customize Android and other Apps

The best app out there to automate your phone in any possible way.

Excellent and very useful app! Has a bit of a learning curve, but definitely worth the small time investment and modest price. Root access opens up more options (e.g. controlling hidden LED on recent Moto phones to take place of missing notification light), but isn't necessary for most functions. I use it also to auto-enable do-not-disturb when plugged in overnight, change input method when Bluetooth keyboard connects, turn off flashlight when placed on magnetic holder in the dark, lots more...

The best app purchase I've ever made, hands down.

Fantastic. It can do anything you can think of, and then give you ideas for things you haven't thought of. This developer is the most creative, most dedicated, and most talented one you will ever find. He never rests. His random updates are bigger than most app's major overhauls. It's a difficult app to learn because it can do so much, but it's so worth it. When it all clicks and you realize what you can do with it, your mind will be completely blown.

I've been using Tasker since ages and it is very powerful. But I feel it's very complicated to use for a new person. The Ui can be more intuitive. Update (Answer): Almost all parts of the apps. I understand this app is for pro users and most pro users would get it. But just imagine if you show the screenshots of the app to someone and ask what's happening here, most of them wouldn't quite get it. Having said that, I do not have any solution as well but one example I can give is Automate app. The way it shows the flows with a flowchart makes it easier to understand whats happening. Also, consider I am creating a profile and I don't know where the exact trigger lies i.e. is it under applications, day, event or god knows. There can be a simpler way of searching through the triggers the way you have for action category dialog. The fact that many people have to ask a question on how to create some particular task, itself is a smell that the UI can be more intuitive. Nevertheless, I agree that it has improved a lot over the years and the feature set it offers is unmatched. All the best devs.

No doubt, Tasker has a learning curve. But once you understand how to use it and realize the extent of its capabilities, only then will you see the extent to which you can unlock your phone's potential. If you don't know how to achieve your desired functionality, there is a good chance someone else has already implemented it and provided the solution online. The developer always responds to questions and issues with urgency. I use Tasker functionality everyday, many times per day.

Best App, use with Join and Plugin do everything

Great app! Does everything I need to control my ISY. Having said that, I ran into a small issue after last upgrade. I have replaced HTTP Get with HTTP Request as recommended but nothing happens when I use the external URL for my ISY even though there are no errors. All works fine while using the internal URL. Until this is resolved, I switched back to HTTP Get. UPDATE: the small issue has been resolved

Many people dont use this app because its a paid app. This app opens a new world of automation.

great app, with unlimited potential for your phone, definitely if you know your way around the bit more technical Android stuff. And then there is the community and definitely not forget the developer who always seem keen to help with any situation or problem you might encouter. Keep up the good work!

Buy this app > feel like a super hacker android god. Honestly though: I use it to automatically set my phone in DND mode and set an alarm in 8 hours, if I connect the charger between 23:00 and 06:00. I probably spent an hour testing it, but I guess it now saves me 40 seconds a day. Good investment. Also you could make it text "good night" and "good morning" to your GF. 😃

One of best app to automate tasks .

Back when I started using Tasker the learning curve was steep, but stick with it and you can do amazing things with it! i always install this as the first app on any new Android I get. The developer is extremely helpful and comes up with fantastic plugins too. Well worth the money.

Absolutely love this app. It's incredibly powerful and incredibly stable, especially given all it can do. To boot, the dev is extremely responsive to the community on multiple platforms. I cannot praise this app enough.

I love this app, I use it to automate "heading home" texts from work, activating my vpn at work, and changing wallpapers throughout the day and it works perfectly. I'm always blown away by how powerful this tool is, and I highly recommend it
