I really want to rate 5 stars. It's a powerful app that lets me make my phone that much better. However, it is complicated and has a big learning curve. I wish it had a tutorial, better user guides, more descriptive explanations of features and tools, and just overall a better user experience. I've managed to get it to work after lots of research and trial and error. However, it should've been easier to learn and use. (EDIT 1/17) Yup, still a big learning curve. Documentation and use guides could definitely be improved with examples and better explanations. Still a great app, but takes time to learn.
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.
I recently purchased this app and I find it very useful it's so useful that I found that I can do 2 things with this one app that I'd need 2 separate apps for(locking apps and power management) and that's just the start. BUT I HAVE ONE MAJOR GRIPE, WHENEVER I OPEN TASKER IT FEELS LIKE IM RUNNING KITKAT AND THIS APP HAS BEEN UPDATED AS RECENT AS 2017!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOME MATERIAL DESIGN WOULD BE NICE 😉.
I don't like it because it clears all my profiles I've made when I clear all applications. I'm not even sure I ever got the profiles to work and have just settled for manual activation of phone functions anyway. Additionally it had no access to my samsung galaxy's 'power saving' function and I couldn't set it up for a nightly toggle on and off.
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 Documentation is sparse and outdated.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.
Use it to automate many phone settings based on various outside variables. I have started using it, along with plugins, to control items in my house (computers, lights). Looking forward to expanding this functionality. Interface is confusing at first but once you get the hang of it, it isn't bad at all. Overall it has been a reliable app and I enjoy using it
