    I have recently started using Tasker and the different Plugins. What I have found is that AutoInput behaves erratic and is not consistent. At times it just works fine and at times it does not. I am using autoinput to change my HomeApp. Basically when I am driving I would like to have a different HomeApp as when I am not. The phone that I use is 1P3T.

    Not sure if anyone else has encountered this behavior.

    Can you clarify what you mean by "erratic"? Just to make sure, do you know that the screen has to be on and unlocked for AutoInput to work?

    Yes, I have the screen unlocked. At times when the AutoInput starts it stops in the middle without completing all the steps in the task. Does rotation of the screen also impact autoinput commands ?

    It can. AutoInput can only click what's visible on the screen so if something is hidden with a rotation that can make it not work...
