Run shortcuts from Tasker or Locale.

(WARNING: YOU MUST HAVE TASKER OR LOCALE INSTALLED FOR THIS APP TO BE OF ANY USE: AutoShortcut will not show up on your homescreen or app drawer. It is only usable as a plugin in Tasker or Locale.)

AutoShortcut is a plugin for Tasker or Locale that allows you to run any of your installed apps' shortcuts.

Usage examples:
- Play Winamp playlist automatically when you connect your headphones at home
- Open specific Google Reader feed when you wake up in the morning
- Open specific note in Evernote when you're in a team meeting
- By exporting a standalone app in Tasker which contains an AutoShortcut task, you can use your own shortcuts in apps or lockscreens that don't support them, like the stock lockscreen in the Galaxy S3 for example. See a tutorial here:

Note: only shortcuts that have been developed using standard Android shortcut creating protocol will show up and/or work. If a shortcut doesn't work, contact that app's vendor.

- Permission to call phone is needed, so you can add a "Call person directly" shortcut in Tasker or Locale

- Permission for Internet is needed ONLY for splashscreen showing my other apps. Get the Pro version if you want this to go away and to support the developer.

Tags: playlist shortcut, tasker notification, autoshortcut, tasker open app drawer, call meeting task note png, autoshortcut pro, open app drawer from tasker, tasker run application widget, tasker launch widget shortcut, start shortcut tasker.

Recently changed in this version

- Added possibility of using Tasker variables in Shortcuts. To use them you must manually edit the Task XML

    Unfortunately, doesn't work with all the app shortcuts I want (ex. OneNote), but I understand that's because those developers didn't use standard Android shortcut creating protocol. But nevertheless an *indispensable* Plugin.

    And can be used to give Tasker even more potential.

    It just keeps on duplicating the Clean Master's "1tapboost" Please fix.

    Why all the glowing reviews? Did NOTHING for me.. Whenever I tried to use this plugin the obtrusive ads actually covered what I presume to be some functional controls. Or is it just spam, with only ads and no controls?

    Does just what it says, I use it with Jet Audio to automatically play a playlist at night while going to sleep.

    Had multiple apps I wanted to automate with this but none of their shortcuts seem compatible. I select their shortcuts from the drop down but then I am taken to the ads and pressing 'ok' takes me back to the Tasker screen without anything having been acco
