Android’s full power stands out when one uses applications like Tasker. This tool allows users to set automatic tasks and let their smartphones do all the tedious work on their own. One can set Tasker to turn off WiFi when one walks away from home, for example. Or one can recreate Samsung’s way of muting a device when the display faces down. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination, and Crafty Apps is taking things further with its new Beta product.

What makes Tasker App Factory enticing is its ability to create .apk files out of specific tasks. The purpose is to allow users to create, share and sell these Tasks as they see fit. Created Tasker apps will run separately and do not need Tasker to operate, making the process completely seamless.

The product is very simple and “needs no programming experience,” as Crafty Apps states. One only needs Android 2.3+, Tasker App Factory and a device with an ARM or x86 processor. And yes, this does include a substantial percentage of available Android devices.

It is interesting how Tasker developers are allowing their users to easily make and distribute apps based on their software. Especially taking into account the fact that Tasker is not known to give its services for free, or affordable. Tasker goes for $6.49 in the Google Play Store. Many of us can attest to the fact that it is very well worth it, though.

This app is in Beta, so we might see some changes coming eventually. As such, Tasker App Factory will only work with Tasker Beta users. You will want to check out the changelog and instructions before you start creating your handy task apps. But when you are ready for the action, just head over to the Google Play Store and get it for free.
