    Ok, this app sat in my phone for a good while before I started using it. It was recommended in an article as a must have app, and after reading about it's capabilities, I purchased it. A bit of a learning curve(still learning...), but I'm so fascinated by Tasker and the many plug-ins that I can't help but to tinker. Wifi/data/lockscreen/GPS/Bluetooth on and off depending on location and/or time, automatic reboots, controlling display brightness and timeouts with apps of your choosing...just download it.

    I love this app and been using it for a while, but whenever I get a new phone, transferring the backups and restoring is simply not possible!! Why can I not just place my old backup on the phone and have access for it? You may say I should just import it... Well, that'd be good if the XML file would actually show up and wouldn't be hidden :/ auto cloud backup is non existent and never worked, ever, so as always, its not working.. Full Review

    Complicated but rewarding. You can automate many phone functions. Would be great to have integrated functions for NFC tags and for working with notifications and voice, etc. Now we need to bleed and pay for other apps to do this essential checks (Auto..., looking at you 😣). Full Review

    I really like this app, but it's not 100% useful until I root my phone. Unfortunately, I have a phone that has no root guide available, so I wish there was a way to give this app the permissions it needs for more advanced features through ADB. I also wish the task icons can change based on variables so the toggles I set in the quick sayings menu tell the status of said task. (ex. Sound icon to vibrate icon based on whether my sound variables is 1 or 0 respectively) Full Review

    So far so good. I'm a Tasker noob, but my location based tasks and profiles seem to be working well. I'll update if anything changes. Most automation apps just don't work, but this one is different. I've tried Llama and Automate, they just don't work right, or they're too difficult to program. Tasker had not failed me yet. Highly recommended. Full Review

    Used to be really good and very useful. But latest version is a lot slower and less responsive. It now takes over 10 seconds to adjust volume / brightness or turn on Bluetooth. Manual toggle is now much faster. (Android 6) Full Review

    It takes a bit of time to get used to, but once you do you realize how brilliant it is. I have managed to create all sorts of profiles, from the simple act of kicking off my podcast app on connecting my BT headphones, to triggering tasks on my PC via AutoRemote. Full Review

    Dear Google. I have Parkinson's Disease. I understand your policy on use of the Accessibility API may result in this app being removed from the Play Store. I rely on this app to cope with my condition. Please show compassion and understanding, and approve Tasker. Full Review

    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).

    After having used Tasker for years, and paying for it before the android market was available in my country and then again when I could finally get the play store version version, with no problem, it's recently become very unreliable. Simple time based events execute only sometimes. Longer running events start but then disappear. I've whitelisted the app in my battery manager but that's made no difference. Using a rooted Huawei P8 Lite. Uninstalling now as this app has become unusable to me. Full Review

And I dont have and never had trial version of Tasker, Utter, Pebble Tasker, and Pebble TaskWatch installed. Please advice so I can install Tasker and ammend review for you. Thx Full Review

    I used to be a big fan of Tasker.. but not anymore now a days it's just an application which occupies my phone memory and probably I should uninstall it. Now a days when I try to use it, either it won't work or may be I would need training to use it properly... Sorry for being harsh, I may be wrong here and may be blaming the app for for my unawareness.... I.e. my profile doesn't enable the speakerphone, I want to switch off the Bluetooth only if Bluetooth is on and disconnected for 5 minutes.. the profile will switch off the Bluetooth irrespective of the status even if I reconnect Bluetooth after 2 minutes.. not sure what's happing there Full Review

    This is the single greatest app on Android. It's why I use Android. It lets me automate my _life_. The fact that it has a plug-in framework allows others to extend the reach of Tasker (e.g. ClockTask). Simply put it's not a phone until Tasker gets installed and configured. Full Review

    Tasker, especially together with the functional additions provided by the many plugins available, is the closest you can get to full Android programming without learning Java. That said, Tasker does not have the most obvious UI for the beginner, and having a general understanding of basic programming logic is very helpful. The developer is active, and tries to keep ahead of the moving target that is Google's Android OS. Full Review

    The concept of the app is very good.But it requires very complicated procedure to operate. In the developer website no detailed guidance .I have to spend a lot of time to learn it by watching YouTube videos , Forums etc.I request developer to display profiles like screen off mobile data off etc. Moreover , My device was rooted but Tasker does not detecting it. For some functions to work it depends on Security Settings ,which requires full root not system less root. Full Review

    You may need to restart your phone after updating to version 5.0u7. That update broke my Do Not Disturb action. Says it needs notifications access, but it already has that. Revoking and adding it back didn't work. Restarting the phone fixed it. Full Review
