"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.

    Works great. The only thing I miss in the main app is an action to shut down selected app (I suppose this can be done using the shell plugin when I play with it a bit :-)). Straight 5/5!

    The whole reason I downloaded this app was so that I could turn off Facebook notifications automatically during a certain time. I was able to download a rule to turn it of, but you also need to download a rule to turn it back on, too which is stupid. When I tried to download the rule to turn it on, the app said that I had insufficient points to do so. You can get 3 points for every rule that you s
