Send text or files to Tasker from any app and react to it however you want!
Also share text from Tasker to any other app that supports text sharing!
Simply use the regular Android share menu and choose AutoShare from the list and the Subject, Text or files will be sent to Tasker where you can do what you want with them! On the corresponding Enter Task you have several variables available:
– %assender (contains the sender app’s package name; the app that shared to AutoShare)
– %assubject (contains the subject of the share)
– %astext (contains the text of the share)
– %asfile1, %asfile2, %asfile3, etc (contains path to files shared; can be accessed in tasker as an array named %asfile)
With the AutoShare command feature you can easily tell Tasker what you want to do with what you are sharing. For instance, use the “copy” command in a profile and in the corresponding task, copy %astext to the clipboard. Then share with the AutoShare Command and choose “copy” from the dropdown list, and whatever you shared will be available on your device’s clipboard
You can also create an Android Share menu from within Tasker with AutoShare, with the Subject, Text and Images of your choosing.
– Intercept shares to other apps and replicate them in Tasker, where you can tweak them at your will or use Tasker variables to make them dynamic.. Watch this video to fully understand it: http://youtu.be/4QPi56Brqsg
