TasGear: A Tasker Extension for the Samsung Galaxy Gear

TasGear: A Tasker Extension for the Samsung Galaxy Gear

With wearable technology taking center stage this year, one can only expect more active development to be seen in this area. This includes tighter integration of apps between wearables and our phones and tablets such as the Tasker extension for the Sony Smartwatch 2, a handy little app that allows you to control and operate Tasker straight from the watch on your wrist. Being a very useful and practical extension, XDA Senior MemberĀ Orbonis was inspired to develop something similar for the Samsung Galaxy Gear called TasGear.

Sharing many similarities with the Tasker Extension for the Sony Smartwatch 2, TasGear packs in quite a lot of features that Tasker users will no doubt find useful to have on their Galaxy Gear. These include:

  • View and start tasks from your Galaxy Gear
  • Send a response back to the watch once a task has been executed
  • Read responses to you using Text-to-Speech
  • Has a favorites menu for quick access
  • Send messages between the watch and the connected device

Tasgear does not require the connected phone or tablet to be rooted in order to work, although your device has to be one of the select Samsung Galaxy devices which have Galaxy Gear support.

So if you’re interested in trying TasGear out, visit the application thread for more information.
