Tasker goes on sale to celebrate the release of UI update

Yesterday, Tasker got a major update that included a complete overhaul of the UI and part of its internal workings on Android 4.0+ devices. This new update will hopefully make Tasker more appealing to new users, and to build on that, the app has also gone on sale.

The price differs depending on the country. In the US, the app goes for$1.99 now, while Europe is seeing prices along the lines of €1.99, with the price here in Norway being 19.99 NOK ($3.50). No matter where you live though, it’s quite a bit off the normal price ($6.49 in the US).

As for how long this sale will last, no one knows, including the Tasker developer himself. This is essentially an experiment as much as it is a sale, and the price drop might become permanent. It all depends on how the lower price affects total income, and how that balances up with added support requests.

Either way, you have the ability to grab Tasker at a lower price right now, so I suggest you take the opportunity if you don’t own it already. Then check out our new Tasker content portal for the ultimate collection of Tasker related articles to show you exactly what this app can do. Speaking as someone who controls his home automation system from a smartwatch thanks to Tasker, I can promise you that you won’t regret buying this app!

    Haha! Just grabbed this about an hour ago. Great deal for this app. 70% off or so.

    Prince of Persia Classic ($1.27) is on sale too. As is GPS Test Plus (99 cents). The latter is a great app. I grabbed PoP because I’ve always been a fan, since the 80s!

    I guess this gives me a good excuse to actually buy Tasker. Now I will need to find some time to make it work! :)

    Note that this development also means the demise of the direct download Tasker version (at least for new users) and its encryption feature.

      Yeah. Shame about the encryption, though I still haven’t found a solid use case for that in my day to day, so I’m not TOO upset.

      I think Pent is trying to figure out a way to bring it to the Play Store version. Unfortunately, it’s governed by the US encryption export laws which means he’d need a license for it. so I’m not sure what he can do.

  • ok i’ve read all your articles on tasker for beginners I’m slowly getting it (my first smart Phone gs4) s voice is to limited so i got “AVX Voice Assistant APP” which is why I got Tasker. The Author recommended using it to add commands. Ok I’m still not clear on how to use variables for certain commands like”turn the volume up” 2x 3x etc. instead I made 7 tasks for sys vol off, lo med max etc. and the same for media vol I can say a command + the task name inside AVX or assign one to specific apps. i also had to create as many voice commands as tasks to make it work.
    are you familiar with AVX It’s a great app can you help? please. you really write well very easy to grasp.
