Recently changed in this version

- Fixed a major bug for users with Tasker commands. Sorry about that, it was literally a one word change which got through testing. Thank you for everybody who helped me resolve this!

- Now search for keywords instead of an exact match. For example if you enter "Commandr is cool, Commandr & good" then all of the following phrases will match "Commandr is cool", "Commandr is really good", "Look at how good Commandr is"

College is expensive, small donations are extremely appreciated!

    One problem. Turning off WiFi or mobile data is stupid to do unless the other is still on since Google Now needs internet connection to work. Either way I love it and can't wait to see more commands come in the future
