About this app

Prior to the 7 Jan update, 5 stars. After the update on 7 Jan, 1 star. Nothing works, only errors are thrown. After attempting to contact dev 2x, sideload prev version and being unable to access the premium features I paid for, I'm reviewing 1 star and moving on w life. At the moment, I would recommend looking elsewhere for your Tasker plug-in needs.

App used to work great until the latest updates when the ability to change Device Settings was broken on my S9. The latest update notes say this was corrected but the features still don't work for me. Developer hasn't responded to my support requests and my Pro license is now useless. Disappointed.

I bought this specifically for the USB tethering toggle...which doesn't work. I've e-mailed the author about it 3x in an effort to try and debug/fix, but he doesn't even bother to respond. To his PAID customers. Do not give this developer your money.
