This is the reason I'll never buy an iPhone If you have a minimal amount of programming aptitude, Tasker opens up a world of possibilities to make your smartphone even smarter. It's not always the most intuitive interface, and it can be quirky sometimes, but if you can imagine it, there's a good chance Tasker can do it.
Bug Please Fix I have found a bug in a recent update. When choosing "Silent Mode" in "Audio Action" it only gives the option for "off" or "vibrate". I have a previous version of tasker in my S3 and there is an extra option to turn Silent Mode "on" when I got the S5 the new version of tasker came along with this missing parameter. Other than this one change I love tasker. I use it every day and am constantly making new tasks for myself. When this is addressed I will for sure give it 5 stars!
I love tasker Among other thing I use it for I work a day and night shift pattern and so set tasker to read a Google calendar I set up for working, sleeping and commuting and applying a profile preset for each one. Took time to set up, but once done I only had to manage my rarely changing calendar. Its complex if you want it to be, but so useful even for light use.
Do I even need to review this??! Its the best app on Android. Basically one of the main reasons everyone should be an android user. Destroys ios and Windows phone with one app. This app LITERALLY does everything. And of course if you install Tasker autovoice and other apps like it you just improve the capabilities. Sure sure it costs 3 dollars yada yada. Small price to pay for unlimited functionality. Oh your old phone had this function and your new one doesn't.... Just create a Tasker profile and task and make your new phone do the same.
Get location issues Version: 4.7u3m. When using the get location task. It never works unless gps is on. Will not return location on net only setting. No network provider locations are working at all. From mobile data. No. Wifi or gps working. No net location from mobile data working at all. Not good.
Unusable Takes forewer to create a simple task like when there is a certain keyword in a received SMS i want it to emulate a call ring i.e. to ring until i pick up... Seema impossible! Money wasted...
