"You order, your Android automatically does"

Reviewed by / Apr 25, 2014

AutomateIT allows users to set automatic processes to be run on your Android

You're going to feel powerful. AutomateIT boosts your built-in smartphone features to the fullest. It allows yo to set rules and desired behaviors in response to events on your Android device.

Thus, you just need to take some time to take those rules and then let your device perform them on its own. Each rule is defined as a pair of trigger-action. For example, you can set actions when battery level reaches a certain level, control when to screen on/off, when to connect to Wi-Fi network, whom calls answers and reject, activate airplane mode from a specific time and many many more (check developer's description or just try it out). Bear in mind that, if you're root, you'll have a whole bunch of new triggers to perform.

Although you'll take some time configuring it before it runs to your liking, setting rules is really easy thanks to its well-crafted design and user-friendly interface. There's a description of what every trigger performs. No way to get lost.

If you love your Android, you'll let it be autonomous and independent, of course, giving it first some rules. Highly recommended.

    You need 'points' to unlock any of the features that make this app usuable, and in the trial version you only get 30 points. Must spam the 'rules market' or your facebook/twitter with duplicate rules to build up points to even unlock 'composite actions' action or 'composite events' trigger. Hence can't even trial the app to see if I want to pay for an upgrade, because can't unlock the triggers I'd

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Automateit when it stopped working (the update didn't seem to take effect), and now it seems to work! I'll be certain it works right when my "Turn Off Volume" rule triggers tonight. Fingers crossed!

    Works like a charm. Does everything I'm looking for. There are some more advanced rules that are missing, but this covers 99%
