Tasker Updated in Google Play With New Holo UI

Tasker Beta

Back in January, the developers of Tasker released a beta, showing off a whole new pretty look for the application. After a few months of tweaking and fixing, the update has officially hit Google Play and now everyone can go pick it up. As a refresher, Tasker is an application that can be used to perform system events at scheduled times, change settings depending on your location, and tons more. 

What’s New:

  • UI updated for holo look-and-feel with selectable light and dark themes
  • 200 built-in icons each in holo light and dark
  • Internal cleanup of deprecated APIs
  • Several new states, events and actions
  • Many incremental improvements and bugfixes

Go get your update on.

    Bought it since it showed up as $1.99 for me.

    • Same here. Finally took the plunge. Brand new design and a 66% off price – who could say no?

    Can anyone here who uses Tasker give me advice on how to make it successfully overclock my Galaxy Nexus? I’ve been trying to do this using a ‘device boot’ script. I even tried giving it a delay of 60 seconds from boot before it tries to apply the OC settings, but it just doesn’t do them consistently (usually doesn’t do them at all).

      Good question, I’d like to know how to do it as well

    I always liked the very minimal lightning bolt in the notification bar.
    The updated version has an XXL version of it. Other than that, very nice.

  • is there a beginners guide to Tasker? I need one badly

    • Steve Benson

      Go on Youtube, there’s a ton.

      Step 1) Uninstall Tasker, preferably while within refund window

      Step 2) Install Llama.
      Step 3) Set up Llama.

      Llama: not because it’s free (you should donate), but because it’s a lot easier.

  • I have been waiting for this. Really excited about the update.

  • The big news for the Nex4/DNA folks is that they have a status for Wireless Charging. Now my DNA turns on Car Mode when I drop it the Owl CarPad and then turns it off when I pull it out.


    (side note, I use an NFC tag to keep it from doing this on my desk Qi charger)

    Finally, that old UI was god awful.
