Tasker cannot recognize Plugin Action's exit state. So, Tasker jump to next action immediately, not wait for plug-in action's finish state. To solve this problem, you need to code your task as this flow.
a. Variable Clear
b. Plugin Action
c. Wait Until - Variable is set

and You need to check 'Allow External Access' to use variable passing actions.

- Permissions
ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - for web query actions
INTERNET - for web query actions
READ_CALENDAR - for calendar action
WRITE_CALENDAR - for calendar action
WRITE_SETTINGS - to prevent the monkey toggles auto rotate.
ACCESS_SUPERUSER - for root required actions. - to use set variable action

    I've been getting "org.json.JSONException: End of input at character 0 of " for a couple past days... And some other similar exceptions occur pretty often all the time.

    Perfect for integrating Tasker and music controls!

    Pretty nifty. Use it with Tasker to resume playing music when I turn my shower speaker on. Btw, if you're looking to just Play instead of Play/Pause, just make 2 sequential commands. First do Pause and then do Play/Pause. Doing Pause first guarantees that when you then do Play/Pause after, it will toggle and start playing :)

    I grabbed this app specifically for Tasker/PowerAMP integration and it works perfectly. Thanks developer! You rock.

    Works well with Llama for something like play/pause. But the EQ present selection is quite broken if you want to use custom profiles. If I select the LAST profile in Action Box it will select the first custom profile. No other custom profile can be selected correctly. Looks like a problem with array indices. Please fix.
