Sorry if this has been asked or answered before. I've googled and searched XDA with no luck. I may just not know the terms to use.

I'm wondering if there's any way to start apps or shortcuts on the phone from the watch? Has anyone been able to do this?

I'd like to be able to trigger tasker tasks that control music around the house, trigger playlists, use Google voice search on the phone from the watch etc. I also have lots of contextual triggers set up on my phone that would be interesting to respond to on the watch.

Are you using tasker? You can start phone tasker tasks (which I guess can simply be apps as well) from the watch that way?

You need the plugin Autoremote (full version, not the lite) There's a thread on how to use it. Search for Autoremote.
