    Version 1.1: - Added "Save as tile on Start Screen" feature that lets you create shortcuts on the Start Screen to your favorite scripts. Clicking on a shortcut will immediately launch the corresponding script. - Added tutorials to show some examples of scripts that can be created with Task Robot. - New actions include: * Send an email (using the Windows 8 interface) * Mailing list: send a personalized email to multiple contacts * Search for something on the Windows Store * 6 new actions in the "branching (if...)" category, such as: "If X > Y then do something, otherwise do something else..." * "Double all quotes" text manipulation action * "Combine (join) multiple text into one" * Divided the "Ask the user for a number" action into two actions: one that is very simple, and the other that contains more options.

Good job with the concept and execution of a few task types. Obviously needs more actions (which the app itself indicates are coming soon). Also can be buggy...will download HTML one time and throw a URI too long error for the exact same page the next time.

It's pretty interesting to use this app as an entertaining tool to pass time rather than a real assistance. It can be quite annoying sometimes especially for the interactive part. I hope its intelligence, convenience, functionality will be improved soon!

while installing I thought it will be quite useful, but it needs more features to be added.

It feels more like a preview of an app rather than anything useful. I look forward to seeing a lot more options added. I would also like to see the background design removed. The chalkboard gives it a really bad 2001 feel. "Lets make it look like its a real chalkboard were writing the instructions on ... neat right?" Not so much. Loose that and just have a nice clean white / light grey background with a good sans serif font. I think a consistent style to windows apps would be a better experience

Let's add a few more actions...

This is a really clever idea for an app - but the features it promises (submit a tweet, send an e-mail, etc) - really need to be there for this to be useful. This is like the www.ifttt.com (if this, then that) website, except it runs on your computer - very cool idea, but the features aren't there just yet - hopefully they will be in the next release.

Its just weird, and seemingly pointless. I was lured in by the concept, but the tasks you can chose from, while "updated frequently", are useless.

I have used this app and I must say windows 8 style apps are doing great.........
