    I want to pass data from one Tasker app to another Taser app. The will both be exported as APKs.

    In the sending app I specify data in the Data field of a Load App command.

    How do I access the data in the app that is being loaded?

    A simple example would be a character string sent from one app to the other and it is then displayed in a Popup.

    I don't have a whole lot of experience with exporting profiles as APKs, but this may be able to get you pointed in the right direction?

    Short of that, it may be easiest to use a temporary text file that both apps can access to exchange data.

    The reason I'm on this is that it opens a whole new realm for Tasker ... in essence you could add a site variable.

    The one I am interested in is "Say_Text" load the app and if Say_Text is yes then you do a Say on the character string. Otherwise you don't.

    So ... you could then easily toggle this site variable.

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
