    Tasker's review

    Published: 2012-05-21, by Peter Warrior.

    The perfect complement to Android OS

    "Your Android will do what you dreamt it would"

    We all agree that Android is about freedom, customization and, in the end, to put together all the things you'd want you phone does. In short, if it will be with you all day long, it shall at least be the way you need it is.

    Tasker does nearly anything that Android OS should do by default. Indeed, it allows to set any known setting in the most useful and creative ways, presetting orders by place and time, scheduling app usage and even linking certain functions to an action. Have an easy example: "I want to connect to wifi whenever I plug it in the charger". Liked that? Here's an other: "I want to turn the sound off when I am in the library". C'mon, I'm sure you'll like it: "I want to add passwords to this and that app, but leave the rest unlocked". If you check its developers website, you'll find quite a few examples and creative ideas to make the most of your Android.

    If I have to argue why Tasker deserves a 5 out of 5 rating, I could do it in just one sentence: you can download Tasker or you can go root. Either way, your Android will be as it was meant to be.

    We're much impressed by Tasker. Sure, it isn't a cheap app, but it should be one of the first apps you install on a brand new device. In short, Android needs Tasker. Essential.

    keeps deleting all profiles and tasks I set up, and when I went to restore the backup I had made through Tasker, it wasn't even there! UI is poorly designed.

    I love this app! I've used it for years, but more recently I've used it to help me with my MS as I can overlay useful controls on top of other apps reducing the amount I have to move my hand. Thanks so much!

    Tasker is such an absolutely powerful app, essential to any Android power-user's experience. I can't imagine my phone without it! It'll take a learning curve for newcomers, but if you're up to the challenge and learning, it'll work out great for you! In addition to that, I'd say that it's helpful that you have some sort of coding understanding, with really the logic of simple coding being most important. Depending on what you're asking of the app, things can be simple or fairly complex, but if you tinker around enough with it, you'll find yourself creating whatever you need with ease (and with time).

    Awesome, I've used this since 2010, great Dev support, wonderful functionality, really only limited by Google's ever increasingly bizarre feature removals.
