    I've been using tasker for two days and already made 5 fully functional profiles with help of Google which works as I want.

    Although I have one problem.
    I made a profile so when you select apps, and try to go on them whilst the profile is on, you'll be redirected to home.
    Now I don't want to manually activate and deactivate the profile because it's not too handy so I was wondering how I could make this:
    Let's say I tap the back button three times, and the tasker profile is toggled.
    So if it's not on, I tap the back button three times, that tasker profile will be toggled to ON and a flash message saying: Profile is now on or off depending on the toggle I put.
    any ideas?

  3. You can not directly control the buttons on an un-root-ed device.

    You could have a screen icon that you tapped to do the same thing.

    How could I make that? That'd work I assume
  5. BBB will beep when the display is turned on.
    AAA will toggle BBB on and off

    A1: Profile Status [ Name:BBB Set:Toggle ]

    Profile: BBB
    Event: Display On
    Enter: Anon
    A1: Beep [ Frequency:8000 Duration:1000 Amplitude:50 Stream:3 ]

    Tasker can respond to an event of king press on " search" button. See if it works for any of your buttons.

    Tasker Shakes and gestures are quick ways of initiating tasks. Combine them with screen on do they don't use power monitoring when screen off.

    Personally, I use swipepad..amazing for quick easy launch of almost anything (including tasker tasks) from almost anywhere. Free, easy, intuitive...can't say enough good things about it.

⚙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!
