Tasker App Factory lets you create task .apk files and share them freely

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.

    Go read any post about Microsoft’s on{x} and you’ll see how terribly frustrating Tasker is. This is coming from a person who paid for the license ($6+ apps are not cheap in the mobile world). Instead of making this product which let’s you export APK’s (who cares), I wish they would just improve the UX of the original product.

      agreed, taskers UI look very overwhelming to the casual user…

        Tasker is a visual building-blocks programming language from your phone.

        How would you design it differently for the casual user? If you’ve got a great idea how to do that, feel free to share it with the developer. He’s very active on the product support forum.

    On {x} is not released so you cannot compare, although it looks way easier.

    let’s you export APK’s (who cares) – I care , which thus renders your statement retarded.
    Sorry you 2 guys are struggling but i wont have them change the app because you think its too hard or complex . Some of us actually enjoy the complexity of tasker because it allows us to get the most out of the program.
    if you spent less time complaining about tasker and actually researching the tasker wiki maybe you would understand the complex nature of tasker is what makes it an amazing app.

      If it is not released yet, what did I install on my phone?
      What were all the complaints about the FB login about then?
      Or are you saying its a beta product, not a real one?
