    We have a restaurant. We use chromecast to cast phone's screen to our TV.
    We simultaneously run two apps. One is KOT management app say X to display what's cooking in kitchen and other is MX Player app say Y to show silent comedy videos.

    I want an app to help me out with automatic switching and minimising of both apps one by one every 10secs.
    This means -
    1. Launch X - 2. Display X for 10seconds - 3. Launch Y - 4. Display Y for 10seconds - 5. Repeat from 1 i.e. Loop.

    So this way customers can see what's cooking amd have their laugh without us having to minimise one app and launch another.

    We tried Tasker but could not get it done. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Have a look at AutomateIt or other automation apps in the P$...

    Tried them all
    They are not supporting auto exit of App x and y in 10seconds. On manual exit they do launch the other app. Display timeout doesn't help.

    You didn't mention you need to close the apps, just toggle between them...

    Do you really need to close the apps???...
