Tasker is a powerful, complex, and flexible automation and programming app, but it can be intimidating to some and may not be for the faint of heart. It also has a steep learning curve — I myself can attest to it — but it’s worth the trouble. It does take some time to become familiar with, much more to be proficient with, but the time will definitely be worth it. It’s a small price to pay for the power, flexibility, and control that Tasker allows you to wield over your Android device.
