Ability to control Tasker
I love your app. However, I miss one very important feature, being able to call other apps/shortcuts from within UR, specifically Tasker tasks. Will this be available any time in the future?
While this workaround works from within UR, it doesn't work from a widget as I can't create a toast from a UR widget.

@krad23 Does this help at all?:
That describes how to call UR functions from Tasker. I'm asking for the opposite, to call Tasker tasks from UR.
As in, when I press a button in a UR remote, a tasker task to be executed. Other apps have this facility, like minimalistic text, uccw, zooper.
We've discussed the idea of adding a device action to trigger things on Android (for example send intents or open a URI) but never really had someone request it before. I'll look into and see what I can do - shouldn't take very long to implement.
I think that would be a huge improvement because then you would add the power of Tasker (and not only) to UR.
So if I have a UR remote, it would not be able to only control the PC, but lots of other stuff as well, like Philips Hue for example.
Right now it's only the power of UR added to Tasker :P

Has this been implemented yet? I would like to use unified remote to trigger some home automation tasks I have setup in Tasker. As of right now it doesn't seem possible. You said 6 months ago "shouldn't take very long to implement."
