Tasker v5.9 exits beta with Logcat events, improved location and camera tools


If you need to automate something on your Android phone, you can be confident Tasker can handle it. While the app has always been good with updates, the new management, aka joaomgcd of AutoApps fame, has pushed some significant new functionality over the past year. Last month, the Tasker v5.9 beta added an interesting new feature — the ability to read the phone's Logcat and react to events, opening up a whole new category of reactive use-cases for your tasks. Today, the stable build of v5.9 was pushed to the Play Store with Logcat events and a whole bunch of other features.

[Update: New Join beta APK] Latest Tasker and Join betas include workaround to bring back clipboard syncing from Android 10 devices

But João Dias is persisting: the maker of Tasker and many other automation apps has updated the beta version of his clipboard manager called Join and you'll be able to cheat your way back to making it work from your Android 10 device again.

The latest beta, 5.9.beta.8, makes the app even more powerful: It has gained the ability to react to Logcat events on your device, so it can now be triggered by snoozing an alarm or holding the back button. It can also discern which finger you're using to unlock your phone and start an action accordingly.

Miss the Spotify widget? You can bring it back with Tasker and KWGT

Miss the Spotify widget? You can bring it back with Tasker and KWGT

Earlier this week, Spotify unceremoniously killed its Android widget, taking away home screen-based controls for the streaming service. Odds are that most of you didn't notice — or if you did, you probably didn't care too much since you can still use the ongoing notification's controls during playback — but for those that were upset at the loss, there's a workaround. Using Tasker and KWGT, you can re-create a convincing approximation of Spotify's lost widget.

[Update: Now in Tasker beta] SkipTrack and Next Track apps let you skip songs by long-pressing volume buttons, no root required

One nifty feature that's been possible on various custom ROMs for some time is the ability to skip forward or back on music players with a long press of the volume buttons, even when the phone is locked and the screen is off. Although similar functionality could be achieved with Tasker using double/triple presses, the exact same feature hasn't been possible on unrooted phones — until now.
