One update on 2017 broke my project. I try much and a lot, after each following update I try hopefully again but not working anymore. Putty! I decided to give up and spend the time like using Java.. ! After a few days learning/try easy, quickly and success build my own apps...
You may need to restart your phone after updating to version 5.0u7. That update broke my Do Not Disturb action. Says it needs notifications access, but it already has that. Revoking and adding it back didn't work. Restarting the phone fixed it.
So far so good. I'm a Tasker noob, but my location based tasks and profiles seem to be working well. I'll update if anything changes. Most automation apps just don't work, but this one is different. I've tried Llama and Automate, they just don't work right, or they're too difficult to program.
Dear Google. I have Parkinson's Disease. I understand your policy on use of the Accessibility API may result in this app being removed from the Play Store. I rely on this app to cope with my condition. Please show compassion and understanding, and approve Tasker.
Tasker is such an absolutely powerful app, essential to any Android power-user's experience. I can't imagine my phone without it! It'll take a learning curve for newcomers, but if you're up to the challenge and learning, it'll work out great for you! In addition to that, I'd say that it's helpful that you have some sort of coding understanding, with really the logic of simple coding being most important. Depending on what you're asking of the app, things can be simple or fairly complex, but if you tinker around enough with it, you'll find yourself creating whatever you need with ease (and with time).
This is the single greatest app on Android. It's why I use Android. It lets me automate my _life_. The fact that it has a plug-in framework allows others to extend the reach of Tasker (e.g. ClockTask). Simply put it's not a phone until Tasker gets installed and configured.
