    Version 5.0 of Tasker and App Factory are currently rolling out from Play Store a few users at a time. (20% of users was stated by the developer.)

    One issue in App Factory that I reported still remains ... you can run System Lock from a widget in 5.0 but you can not run it from an App Factory Kid.

    If you have a single Tasker device running 4.9 on it you may want to wait for a few weeks before upgrading to 5.0. (Recommended by the developer.)

    5.0 supports Tasker Screenshot and has a much improved user interface. The release notes are at ...

    Have you received Tasker 5.0 yet? Did the corresponding App Factory for 5.0 also come at the same time?

    I am on 5.0 beta 9 and have not yet reived the released version.

    If you are an App Factory user you should be aware that you must get the updated App Factory that corresponds to Tasker 5.0.

    There does not seem to be any major issue with the latest release. There are a number of minor issues (like the one I mentioned earlier).

    The author is now on summer break so there will probably be nothing changing over the next two weeks.

    FWIW the new user interface is a vast improvement with many new capabilities.

⚙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
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions! Check out an example https://youtu.be/yAt2D1XmgUI. ☑ 7 day trial - one time payment to unlock

Note
: Tasker uses the BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN permission in order to provide the System Lock functionality
