PebbleTasker

PebbleTasker


Control Tasker directly from your Pebble watch.

Choose three tasks to activate anytime without taking your phone out of your pocket. Have these tasks change based on Tasker profiles. Want to access navigation tasks while driving, but also have home automation tasks while at home? Need more than three tasks? Chain tasks together or take advantage of the 20-task secondary menu (by holding the middle button). Program PebbleTasker to open up or close based on Tasker events, so that your three tasks are ready to be used as soon as you get in your car or get home.

REQUIRES TASKER BY CRAFTY APPS. Make sure you have Tasker installed before installing PebbleTasker.
Also requires latest Pebble firmware. Check the firmware inside the Pebble app if you have any issues.

INSTRUCTIONS: Inside Tasker, go to the Preferences menu, and under the Misc tab, make sure "Allow External Access" is enabled.

Tasker must already be installed before installing this app. If PebbleTasker still doesn't work, please uninstall and reinstall the app.

If you're getting a "Loading..." screen that won't go away, you need to update your Pebble's firmware to the latest version. Check inside the Pebble app under the 3-dot menu for the "Check for FW Update" option. If you're running the latest version, restart the watch by pressing the middle button for more than 10 seconds, and toggle the Bluetooth on your phone. That should fix it.



PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE LEAVING A REVIEW IF YOU'RE NOT COMPLETELY HAPPY! I will do my best to try to solve whatever issues you are having so that you can enjoy the app to its full potential!

-----------------------------
Changes in 1.4:

New Tasker plugin:
- Now custom tasks are separate from the default ones, allowing one to restore to a default menu with much ease through Tasker.
- You can now open AND close the watch app through Tasker.
- The plugin now shows a more useful description for the specific action.


- New tasks menu! Supports up to 20 tasks. This will be improved as the Pebble API gets more mature. Loading a short menu can be quick, but loading a full 20-task menu may take up to 10 seconds. Press and hold the middle button to activate.
- Tasks can now be renamed for the Pebble's screen.
- Press-and-hold actions for the top and down buttons can now be assigned to separate tasks.
- You can now choose to close the watch app after executing a certain task.
- Ability to close the watch app if it hasn't been used for a while (3 minutes of no data communication).
- Enabled support for populating the Glance Tasker menu with the main three tasks from PebbleTasker. This is useful if you use Glance, but don't want to set up intents through Tasker. This feature is beta!

Recent changes:
Version 1.7:

- Updated to PebbleKit 3.0.
- Potential bug fix for watch app not finding phone app. If you run into an issue where the watch asks about the Android app, please try reopening PebbleTasker on your phone at least once to allow it to register with the system. If you still run into the issue, please drop us an email!

I have the new Pebble Time. The app works great, meaning it does exactly what it is supposed to do. Per the instructions from a forum post I had read, I configured a task (using Tasker - Get Secure Settings - Pebble Tasker) to easily and properly allow Google Voice Search on my Pebble Time (i.e., via a single button press, a) my phone wakes up and unlocks; b) Google Voice Search activates without my having to say "Ok Google," d) after 15 seconds my phone returns to its locked state. I used Pebble Tasker to link the button of my choice to that task. Works as it should.

Depends on another app? I bought this app with the remaining 3 dollars from my Google play account just to open the application and realize it needs another application to run. I want a refund or a solution. I don't want to hear "You should have taken a look at the description" because that's not what I look at when I buy stuff. I look at what other people say about it and what the rating is. In that case, if you truly deserve that close to five star rating, then prove to me you do.
