Exploring the world of apps is quite an intriguing adventure especially when it comes to Android. Talking of these two apps, which we shall put on the weighing table today, there is a magical and almost unreal technical feel that makes you truly appreciate the wonders of innovative research. Let’s get to explore the technicality of these Android cyborgs.
Before we set out on this, it’s worth noting that these two apps can be used concomitantly on the same Android device. The comparison may help you in making a choice on one of them though.

As we embark on breaking the ice first, it’s important to know what kind of apps these are. These are types of apps that basically work by automation, thus making your life easier.
IFTTT stands for ‘If This Then That’, which basically implies that this app can do quite a number of tasks without needing much of your intervention such as uploading of a new tweet. These simple tasks on this app are known as ‘recipes’. IFTTT has a narrower scope than Tasker thus, it’s easier to understand and use.
Tasker, which works a bit differently than IFTTT, is the thing for the sophisticated kind with its ability to undertake complex tasks without you having to heave around. This app gives you a unique new experience with its elaborate chain of commands. It also has a unique feature that senses even the simplest of activities such as plugging in your phone.
However, the user interface of Tasker is a bit too drab, therefore, giving the win to IFTTT in this case.
The features of these two apps come a bit different from each other in that it is simpler using IFTTT as it is less complicated, unlike the complex Tasker. Making of new recipes and executing those works easily with IFTTT. However, you are only limited to attaching different apps plus a number of system operations with this app.
Tasker manages some more complex tasks such as tweeting for you even when it’s raining. This gives it the win when it comes to management of tasks or recipes due to its depth and ability to customize. This is because it has the ability to do almost anything that you can imagine, unlike IFTTT, which can only carry out a single task per single trigger.
IFTTT however takes the lead when we talk of price and ease of learning unlike Tasker, which is deficient in good tutorials and guides, thus making it quite hard to master than many other familiar apps.
Bottom line is that choosing between Tasker and IFTTT will boil down to your personal preference. If you prefer your online stuff all going automated, then you are advised to settle for IFTTT. On the other hand, if you want to be the sophisticated automatic pro on literally any aspect around you, then go for the big boss, Tasker.
Both of these apps come with features that can be described as complementary to each other, that’s why it’s possible to have them both in your phone and use them simultaneously.
