Any button can be programmed to switch to another remote. A useful approach is to use remote layout 'remote3' and set up all your remotes with the same remote switching options using the 5 buttons in the top row. For the button that represents the remote you're currently on, program it as a macro with no commands and set the text color to green. This allows you to easily see which remote you are currently using. Another good approach is to use the hardware volume buttons to move forwards and backwards through a set of remotes.

Recent changes:
Added a custom layout editor. You can now define your own remote layouts.
Custom layouts can include Buttons, Labels and Images. All can be positioned, sized and rotated.
You can import your own button images.
For button images, you can optionally create a 2nd image that will be displayed when the button is pressed. Just suffix the name with _down.
e.g. Button1.png & Button1_down.png.

Works well But the automated task timer function doesn't work worth a crap and that's the function I could really use. I'm hoping one day it will work reliability.

Scheduling Tasks Not Working The task function is not working. Scheduled tasks do not run, or sometimes randomly run at times which you did not specify.

Works great Exactly what I was looking for. Tasker integration is amazing! I would like some more themes for the remote though.

Perfect integration with Itach Works a treat. The tasker plugin with autovoice is the icing on the cake, now have it working with voice commands. Love this app. Good work
