Tasker 5.5 pronto al download: novità per l’importazione degli script e il supporto Google Drive (video)

Vezio Ceniccola

Tasker 5.5 è la nuova versione della popolarissima app di personalizzazione ed automazione presente da anni su piattaforma Android. Le novità incluse in questo aggiornamento sono davvero tante, soprattutto per quanto riguarda la possibilità di condivisione degli script.

Uno dei miglioramenti principali è, infatti, quello legato all’importazione delle funzioni tramite il servizio Tasker Share: da ora, basterà aprire un semplice link sul proprio smartphone ed importare lo script desiderato nell’app di Tasker. Cio permette una condivisione molto più semplice, trasformando ogni funzione in una sorta di mini-app attivabile all’occorrenza.

Altro miglioramento importante è quello del supporto a Google Drive, cosa che permette di caricare contenuti direttamente tramite Tasker, ottenendo anche il link per la condivisione diretta, e di effettuare automaticamente o manualmente i backup dei dati.

Ci sono, poi, tante nuove azioni da poter utilizzare. Tra le più interessanti, da ora è possibile impostare delle condizioni per le azioni Custom Setting, ma non mancano anche altre novità per la gestione del display, della connettività e delle impostazioni.
