Win a free Tasker license from Tasker and Pocketables!

tasker - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Tasker has been featured even more heavily than usual on our site in the last week, due to the combination of a massive update to the UI being released on the same day that we released our Tasker content portal to celebrate 100 articles in the Tasker category.

The Tasker developer has kindly given us 20 license codes for the direct download version of Tasker, and we’re giving them away to celebrate!

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment below, telling us why you want to check out Tasker, why you want another license if you already own it, or to just share something about Tasker in general. We will pick 20 commenters at random that will be given a code each. This will be sent to the email address you use to leave your comment, so make sure the email you use is valid.

The winners will be randomly picked and contacted a week from now, Wednesday April 10th.

For those of you new to Tasker, or not used to seeing anything about it in their G&E news stream, Tasker is an immensely powerful Android automation app, and in many ways more powerful than Android itself. It can do anything from simple automation like turning on GPS when your device is connected to your car stereo, to acting as a platform for creating fully functional Android apps that can even be exported into standalone apps- right from within Tasker itself. I have written over a hundred articles about it in the last year, ranging from a massive beginner’s guide, to tutorials, videos, and news post, all accessible via our Tasker content portal. Go there to learn how to make your own widgets, apps, control interfaces, control your PC, tablet, smartwatch, and more, all using Tasker.

If you don’t want to wait for the giveaway to finish, you can grab Tasker from Google Play right now for a discounted price:

    I just got an Android phone, and would love to check this out. I need a memory boost!

  • I would really like a direct download license for Tasker since this giveaway seems to be the only way for a new Tasker user to try its encryption feature. The Google Play version doesn’t have it and the direct download version is no longer offered to new users.

  • Hi. I’d like to win a license for Tasker because I have seen the many articles you have posted on here and have always thought about it as a great tool to make my Galaxy Note II even more great than it is now. I hope I am lucky enough to win.

    Reply
  • I have wanted to check this out, but didn’t spring for it because ultimately I suspect though it has neat functionality, the bother isn’t worth the gain. For a complimentary license though, I would try it and if it’s easy enough to program, would likely advocate others try it too..

    Reply
  • I’ve looked at many automation apps for Android and Tasker always came up as an option but never really looked into it due to the cost. Having a license would let me automate many things like getting to work, leaving home, being in a meeting, etc.

  • I’ve been rooting for a couple years, but haven’t really dived in as deep as I want. Now that I’m about to jump to a new phone, I’d like to have all the right tools for getting the most out of the hardware and the experience. So this would be a useful app to have, and your tutorials are very helpful. Thanks!

    I’m a huge android fan – between me, my wife and kids we currently have 7 android devices. I’ve been interested in Tasker for a long time – as I love apps, mods, etc that help automate and make life easier – but try to stay budget neutral on something until I can’t live without it. I’d use Tasker to automate changes in settings, send messages, etc. as I travel between work, home and other places and at different times of the day.

    I tried out Tasker way back in the day on my DROID Eris. For some reason I’d forgotten about it. Now I really want it back!

    Reply
  • I’ve been trying in vain to find ways to extend the battery life of my EVO LTE without making it a “dumb”phone ( turn off sync, bluetooth, wifi etc..) Tasker looks like something which can help me by making my phone an “intelligent” phone knowing when to do what…

    TLDR; I NEED it!

  • I like the many tasks that can be accomplished with Tasker, and have decided to stop reading the posts about Tasker, because I don’t have it. It would be great to get a free copy of Tasker, and be able to do all the great things I’ve seen so far.

  • Please include me in this drawing, as this Tasker app sounds Awesome, and i would love to see how powerful it is.

  • I’ve been using Tasker for upwards of three years methinks. I’d like another license for my gf, actually. She recently got a Nexus 7 and has been using my old HTC Desire as her phone for about a year. I’d like to set up many of the same automation that I’ve come to appreciate (and can’t live without).

    Reply
  • Wow, well, I could need another one, already having bought 3.

    Why, I got myself an old el-cheapo phone for my grandma and I’d like to use it with spare parts and home automation to make her life easier and safer.

    I already own Tasker but I could use an extra license for my buddy who uses Llama and refuses to buy Tasker because it’s ‘too complicated’. I pointed him to your guide earlier today so it would be cool if he could get to try it for himself.

  • I’ve been playing with llama which is a free competitor to Tasker, but I would love a license to check out Tasker…you know, to see if it’s up to the task. :)

  • I just got tasker this week and have been showing off the handful of tasks I’ve automated (lock screen when not on home wifi or not within a mile of home, reading texts or name of incomming caller if I’m using blutooth or headphones, taking photo of person who enters an incorrect pin and emailing that photo along with phone location to my gmail, dimming my phone at night when laying in bed, and others that I haven’t gotten quite right yet). I’d love to do some of these things on my wife’s phone.

    Reply
  • I’ve been playing with the tasker trial for about two weeks and finally have some cool profiles. My most favorite (and least complex) is shaking to change my phone’s brightness. When inside I usually use my phone at the lowest possible level of brightness to save battery. When I step outside, all I have to do is shake it, and voila!, my screen is bright. A license would be awesomest thing ever.

  • I’d like to posses tasker because of a few things … :
    I came to the conclusion that Tasker is one of the most worthy apps in play store. Why? cause u can simply do anything with it
    :)) u can even do things that u’ve never thought of :) a lot of options that give u the freedom to program your phone to be even better than it is; and most importantly to be more useful and optimize the way it works. Optimization of the phone is key feature for me, or at least till the manufacturers start creating high efficient batteries with countless working hours :)

  • I have been using Llama but I have always wanted to try Tasker and read up on it and it seems like it would suit me better. I’ve wanted to put it but can’t do to no credit card and being a student on a budget. =[

  • In November I received my 1st smartphone, the Note II. I have been playing and learning with tasked since then and it was actually my first app purchase.
    Last month my wife received her 1st, the S3. She wants the same “features” of my phone, but I will probably be doing all the work. I would like a license for her so that i could use autoremote to make our life very very easier.
    Thanks for all the tasked articles, best resource for beginners

  • I would like a Tasker License as I got my phone to make my life easier, and Tasker was made to make the phone automate tasks, right? seems like a win/win to me.

    I just discovered Tasker as an app for my Android. with a little research for tutorial also pocketables.com, now it’s on my daily list as the “Tasker-Blog”
    With Tasker I get the feeling that many of the tiny apps could be replaced by Tasker-tasks and this even more personalised!

    Started with testing the quite basic features as location profiles, over Barcode/NFC integration, then requesting addition data with Yahoo’s YQL to a whole new level now with my new Sony SmartWatch – the possibilities of ideas extend my leisure time… (thanks ‘Andreas O.’ for the incentive ;)
    So it would be great to have Tasker longer than the trail window.

    Do you have any idea how sad it is to use five automation solutions for five different things?

    I’ve got AutomateIt running the Star Trek communicator sounds when I turn my screen on and off (and it’s really buggy), Ifttt sending me an email when there’s something new on Netflix (and my inbox has exploded), on{x} changing my volume based on ambient sound levels (and it randomly changes my volume from zero to max when I’m playing games at work), and Motorola Smart Actions saving my battery (no problems).

    I’ve lost faith in automation because everything I’m using is either severely limited or completely broken. Please give me this mythical tool of the gods.

    I’ve had an Acer Tablet for two years and a Samsung Stratosphere for fifteen months. I rooted the tablet a few months after I got it, didn’t last a week before the Strat was unleashed. I have been enjoying tweaking this and that and sampling different ROMS for both.
    It wasn’t until I got my Pebble Smartwatch that I finally found out about Tasker. Where have you been my whole (Android) life? Everyday I wake up since I found you I have done nothing but experiment with you and all of my other devices. Who knew? Love at first download.

    Hello sir,
    I’ve implemented a logic on Tasker in such a way that I can grab all the information of anyone’s cell and can control anyones cell totally by remote sms commands or by any other triggering methods remotely. Indirectly, I can hack and can take full control of anyones cell remotely, without knowing the cell owner that whats happening with his/her cell. The logic I’ve implemented in such a way that it is totally inaccessible to anyone instead of my remote sms command. I’ve implemented a logic in such a way that I can push my new developed tasks remotely to the targeted /hacked device, this is the strength of my developed logics. I spent more than two months over developing the logic for that task.
    During self knowledge lecture in college, I put those my all ideas in front of all college students and staff members. Its really not a joke, but I got first prize also, in that lecture competition.
    From that day everyone was loving me and Tasker and they renamed me as a “Hacker”. And now everyone wants that hacking logic from me. But im not about to give them that logic, because its totally illegal and may harmful for someones life. Therefore instead of giving them a readymade logic, I wish to give them a free key as gift and want to tell them that they may also create there own logics and can make stand alone applications, but dont make such an apps those are harmful for others.
    In this way, I just want atleast one free key as a gift for me, which I can gift to my classmates and so that they may inspire from the wonders and capabilities of tasker to make a stand alone applications….!
    Thank U…!!!
