In addition to the plethora of apps and utilities current smartphones can offer, they can be further customized to aid us with various daily routines, such as starting and stopping the engine of a scooter…
Fresh from introducing the Tasker App Factory, Tasker gets a new companion app that makes it an even powerful and smarter tool. The AutoRemote app lets you gain full control over your phone – even when it’s sitting miles away.
We’re pretty sure you know what an awesome app Tasker is in providing that extra boost of intelligence. From something simple as setting your phone to automatically switch from 4G to 2G or WiFi when the screen is off, to something more elaborate, it’s all within reach. The app comes with over 200 built-in actions and triggers to automate most tasks.
With AutoRemote, you can now send message to your phone to trigger any preset actions. Once the app is installed, you’ll be given a personal URL that you can access from your computer and tablet, one where you’ll be sending the commands from.
The developer has provided several scenarios of how the AutoRemote app can work intelligently in tandem with Tasker. As listed on the app’s Google Play page, here are some of them:
The AutoRemote app is a separate download from Tasker and it will cost you $1.11. Note that AutoRemote won't work on its own, so you need to have Tasker installed as well.
