Android: Our favourite Android automation tool, Tasker, received a new update that adds support for SMS listening in KitKat, the ability to search through installed Tasker plugins and more. Avid Tasker users are likely to find something new that’s interesting.

The new version comes with a fairly long list of features, bug fixes, and updated support. KitKat users in particular will appreciate that the new Tasker has a few tweaks like allowing the user to set a timer (as opposed to an alarm). Be sure to check out the full changelog for details.
