There are quite a few macro-based automation tools available on Android platform, but the most popular 3 are Tasker, Automate, and MacroDroid. They all work by automating various mobile operations by binding tasks to events/triggers, thus greatly improving smartphone efficiency. Such as:

  • Reply the current location of mobile phone when receiving the text message “Send Location” from a certain number (this is equivalent to the mobile phone anti-theft function)
  • Lock the screen when an object approaches the range sensor (this is equivalent to smart locking)
  • Turn on the flashlight while shaking your phone
  • Unlock the screen when you reach a certain location (no need to manually unlock it)
  • Automatically turns Bluetooth on when you open an app and off when you quit
  • ….

As a very powerful, practical and easy to use task automation application with straightforward and friendly user interface, MacroDroid is currently the easiest way to automate tasks on our Android-based devices like smartphone and tablet, making them truly smart. It makes it possible to build fully automated tasks in just a few taps, making Android automation has never been easier: 1) select your trigger; 2) choose your actions; 3) add optional constraints.

In contrast, Tasker and Automate have more customization options, requiring users to spend more time and energy to research, so they are more suitable for advanced users. MacroDroid does a better job in ease of use, multilingual support, and screen interaction simulating (no plug-ins required), and strikes a good balance between functionality and ease of use, so it’s more user-friendly for novice users.

// Application Examples //

A few examples of how MacroDroid can help you to get automated:

  • Optimize your daily workflow on your phone; switch on bluetooth and start playing music when you enter your car. Or switch on WiFi when you are near your house.
  • Reduce battery drain (like dimming your screen and switching Wifi off)
  • Saving on roaming costs (automatically switch off your Data)
  • Increasing safety during commuting by reading your incoming notifications (via Text to Speech) and sending automated responses via email or SMS
  • Make custom sound and notification profiles.
  • Remind you to do certain tasks using timers and stopwatches.
