Tasker è senza dubbio una delle applicazioni più apprezzate dagli utenti che amano personalizzare il proprio smartphone Android e siamo certi che con il nuovo aggiornamento, la versione 5.9, lo sarà ancora di più.

A distanza di un mese dal rilascio della beta 8, è finalmente pronta la versione stabile di questo corposo aggiornamento di Tasker, con il quale vengono introdotte tante novità, così come conferma il changelog ufficiale:

  • Media Button
  • Added Get Location v2 action: get your current location in a much more accurate and fast way than the old Get Location.
