MacroCut lets you create powerful custom home launcher shortcuts. Shortcuts that are like macros or scripts. For example you can create a shorcut that lets you turn on GPS, launch Maps, then when you are all done with Maps it turns off GPS for you automatically. All from just one click of a launcher shortcut!

You're not limited to just GPS you can configure all kinds of settings including AutoRotate, Bluetooth, Silent Mode and WiFi... with many more to come. Combinations are only limited to your imagination.

Some useful shortcut examples you can create are

1. Turn on AutoRotate
2. Launch the Gallery
3. Turn off AutoRotate when you are done with Gallery

1. Turn on Wifi
2. Turn on GPS
3. Launch Maps

All from one button click from a home launcher!

You can also create home launchers that turns on and off one or many settings similar to widgets. Never forget to turn off GPS or WiFi again with MacroCut.

There are many app's that automate settings configuration. However many of those app's use long running services (tasker) that keeps running in the background and will drain your battery. With MacroCut everything run's sequentially and it uses no permanent long-running services.

With MacroCut anyone can be a Power User!

- AutoRotate, GPS, Bluetooth, Silent Mode, WiFi ... etc

- Make sure to exit the browser by pressing menu then exit. Other apps use the back button to close the app.

* Setting GPS may not work for all devices.

* Setting Screen Timeout to off may not work on all devices.

** Please note that if you uninstall the application the shortcuts created will no longer work.

*** If you are experiencing DISAPPEARING SHORTCUTS, there is a bug with shortcuts and folders. If you reboot your phone you will find all your missing shortcuts are in your folder. This is a Google issue and not a Macrocut one.
The workaround is to not use folders on that home screen or create the shortcut by long pressing on the home screen and pressing shortucts, then Macrocut. This is the Google preferred way to create shortcuts.

    I just wanted an app that turns on wireless tethering instead of "drop menu, settings, wireless/networks, scroll, tethering/hotspot, check hotspot box, home" but is limited to all but a few phone functions.

    But could be so much more! I mainly needed it for two macros (switching from bluetooth to wifi and vice versa), which it does quite nicely...however, it really lacks the power to create 'great' macros.

    It does exactly what it says it will. I use it to enable flight mode, launch an encrypting app, then disable flight mode, all with a single tap. The interface is fool-proof, but it should allow deletion of entries in any order. Also it would be nice to be

    If this program would let you create a shortcut to any process like managing applications or to any folder then it would get 5 stars. Give it the power of ROOT!

    Everything in this app is unoriginal.
