Default Tockle: start tasker apps from your G Watch :)

Hi there,

For all the Tasker fans out there; with the Tockle app you can start Tasker tasks straight from your G Watch.
Those who are familiar with Tasker know this makes the G Watch possibilities (almost) endless.

It's in beta right now but works great!
You have to join the Tockle community on Google+ to download:

Very very happy with this so I thought let's share

I currently only control my lights with my G Watch but many many projects to follow.

*edit: I made a typo in the topic title: apps should obviously be tasks. My bad :s

Tockle is great and shows real potential, the dev seems really helpful as well.

Trigger is another app that lets you control tasker tasks from Wear, (you need to create a task as if its an NFC trigger and skip the Tag writing stage), then you can choose the task from the companion app that installed on the watch, the good thing about trigger is that you get more than one task to scroll through on one screen.

This can be done with the Wearable Widgets app that's been available for a while. Just create a widget for the task you want and just swipe through all the available ones on the watch. Simple.

being a big user of tasker i love this app esp since all my home lights and garage door are programmed through my tasker along with a million other tasks, quick question does anyone else experience lag time when saying "ok google...start action set"? When i launch it from the side bar its extremely fast and responsive but when trying to do full voice its very laggy in getting to that next screen.

as for the person that mentioned wearable widgets, id much rather this app over that only due to the battery drain that i've seen from that app (wearable widgets)
