Taskei For Android Lets You Automate Popular Muzei Live Wallpaper With Tasker


Since its release last month, Muzei Live Wallpaper has gained a lot of acclaim from its users for bringing gorgeous wallpapers from different sources to their home screens. Another app that a lot of Android power users love is Tasker, known for its ability to let users automate countless tasks on Android. While Muzei can automatically rotate your wallpaper, how about the ability to do it based on context, action or any condition supported by Tasker? Taskei acts as a bridge between these two apps to let you do just that. Let’s take a look at how that works.

Needless to say, Taskei needs both Muzei and Tasker to be installed in order to work. After installation, simply go to Muzei’s settings and you’ll see Taskei as an available source. Select it and tap the gear icon below it to land on Taskei’s barebones interface that simply lets you quickly jump to Tasker in order to set it up. You can also just open Tasker directly for the purpose.

The next step is automating Muzei with Tasker, for which you’ll have to configure one of Muzei’s available actions (found under the ‘Plugin’ section when you add an action). You can add an action to an existing task, or create a new task for the purpose. The available actions include Muzei Source, Next Artwork and Random Source, all three of which should be self-explanatory. Muzie Source further lets you choose the source to use for the action, listing all sources currently available in Muzie.

After adding the actions, you can assign their task to any profile in Tasker and the wallpaper will change accordingly. For instance, you can assign a task containing the ‘Next Artwork’ action to a shake profile in order to have Tasker change to the next wallpaper whenever you shake your phone. And this is just one examples; based on the immense scope of Tasker, the possibilities are endless.

So, if you’re a fan of Muzei and Tasker, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give Taskie a go, especially considering its price tag of free!

    You should change name of this site to “addictivemobiledevicestips” or something similar… IMO there’s too much posts devoted to smartphones since idk, december.

    • Well, times sure are changing fast…and not just with us; it’s global! More and more of us are relying on our smartphones and tablets for most of our computing needs, and PC sales are declining like there’s no tomorrow. Naturally, that’s gonna result in a higher focus on smartphone-related posts. Not that we have any bias towards PCs; it’s just that there isn’t as much happening for them these days, when compared to mobile. =)

        Sure, but I’m here everyday and seeing all these mobile related posts makes me a little disappointed 😛

        • Heh, I know what you mean. Think of it this way: mobile is the new PC.

            I think things are just balancing out. Back in the 70s, 80s and most of the 90s, few people had a PC or internet (or BBS) access unless they had some specific interest to and/or need for computer technology. As the web grew and companies grew more dependent, low cost PCs became a way for people to be able to browse the web, send/receive email and other tasks that really didn’t require a full PC to do.

            These days we have very inexpensive devices, like tablets and phones, which are capable enough for most. PCs are slowing receding to just the people who have a specific interest and/or need for them.

            Personally I love my PCs and couldn’t do without them, but I know many others who do fine on just a tablet or phone.

  • Mmm, I am agree with you man insanelyapple Because this post seems regarding some android mobile apps.
