It is ~~one of~~ the best automation tool for Android. Tasker is behaving weird. It doesn't recognize files when use root is selected. It gives error that it is a dir. Checking file size always gives 1 when root is used, and without root, it doesn't start the action. In marshmallow it worked fine, but it is having problem in CM 14.1 😢 Still not fixed in latest update.
Right now I hate this app, had it a few days watched hours of tutorials, and it's still not doing the simple things I'm asking it to do. Like go into night mode between a certain time, turn off auto brightness, set brightness to 1. Alert me that my battery is full when it gets to 100% (this worked briefly) The interface isn't very smart, it also has a bug (mentioned on youtube) where a text box opens under the keyboard (turn phone on side as a work around) Lots of tutorials available from years ago, not sure they're so relevant these days. I'd be happy to receive a refund. Rooted Oneplus 3T (Nougat)
I am a huge fan of exelent customer service. I sent email to support asking a question, (I looked in the forums for a while. Couldn't find anything) Within 24 hours I received an email back with a link to some solutions. Absolutely amazing. I did have an issue installing. And the link solved it. I am stunned and will recomends nothing but this app to anyone looking for an automation app. Seriously. This app is absolutely the most powerful automation app out there. And I will continue to use it.
The concept is great, but it is impossible to use. The UI is among the worst I've ever seen. It doesn't follow a single standard Android design practice. Documentation is sparse and outdated. You'll spend hours fumbling your way through incomprehensible menus only to be more confused than when you started. Making anything of even modest complexity will make you pull out your hair.
Nice, but I believe this app checks root by seeing if the superuser app is installed. So if you use another root method (like magisk in my case), it won't work. I need to have the superuser app installed to get Tasker to work. Also when I add a profile, task, scene or variable, the text field where you're supposed to enter the name gets covered by the keyboard.
I upgraded from the free trial after 10 minutes. Well worth the price just for the one task I wanted it for, and I see it being very useful in a whole lot more ways than that. Easy to use for simple tasks with no experience, even if the list of possibilities seems a little overwhelming (in a good way) at first.
