MacroDroid - Device Automation« Essential Apps « Downloads
|Updated||December 27, 2013|
MacroDroid is a task automation and configuration app that focuses heavily on usability with a simple, attractive UI and logical step by step process.
From AndroidTapp.com: “MacroDroid is an utterly brilliant, and less expensive, alternative (to Tasker) that is definitely worth trying out” (4.6/5)
Please note MacroDroid is currently only available in the English language. Preliminary work is underway on a Spanish translation which we hope to make available in the coming months.
A few examples of what MacroDroid can automate:
• Shake the device to upload the last photo to Facebook.
• Turn on Wifi or Data connection when you launch a particular app (and off again when closed).
• Respond to an incoming SMS by sending your current location.
• Toggle the power button to tell you the time (e.g. when its in your pocket).
• Use NFC tags to configure the device (turn on bluetooth, set volume etc).
Creating a custom Macro is easy:
• Click ‘Add Macro’
• Select a trigger from a list – (e.g. Battery Level).
• Configure any trigger specific settings – (e.g. Battery Level < 10%) • Select an action from a list - (e.g Enable/Disable Wifi) • Configure any action specific setting - (e.g. Disable Wifi) • Add more actions as required (up to 10) • Optionally select a constraint from a list - (e.g. Day of the Week) • Configure constraint as required (e.g. Saturday and Sunday) • Add more constraints as required (up to 10). • Choose a name and category for the Macro.MacroDroid includes a list of template Macros to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the application.
