    Is there an app or any way outside of rooting to schedule a daily reboot of my phone?

    An app making a phone reboot (on purpose anyway) requires root. Apps don't have this ability without root to prevent rogue apps.

    Tasker can do this, but as Demache said (6.5 months ago, lol) - you must be rooted for that feature to be unlocked

    lol it's worth it though, you can do many other things apart from that :)

    try the trial version off the devs website, 2 week trial i think.

    also, if you're patient, i'm sure new apps will come up with this functionality because as far as i know it was only re-introduced recently.

    Not sure why the daily reboot but I just switch the phone off at night then on again in the morning. Or have I missed something?
