Llama is a Location Aware Mobile app, that allows you to launch some actions depending on your location
Thanks to Llama you can teach your phone what to do depending on where you are. You don't need to leave enabled GPS 24/7: it doesn't work this way. It needs a "learning" process throughout which it tracks phone masts around. For example: launch Llama to detect phone masts near to work and it will detect when you get there (the longer it tracks the more accurate it will be). Then, it will automatically perform what you told Llama to do in that location: disable WiFi, enable vibration, enable GPS, etc. You can add as many locations as you want.
Actually, for a more accurate performance you should take some time defining the event: an event contains some conditions and some actions. There are lots of actions: kill app, music media volume, run app, screen lock password... check out developer description. When all conditions are met, Llama will perform the actions for the event. Most events come in pairs: you need one to turn something on, then another to turn something off, so yo'll usually create two events with the events conditions reversed (this way of proceeding it's a bit annoying).
You can check out "History" button to check out if all the events and actions are being performed properly. You can even place shortcuts to events in your home screen. Even it takes some time to set it all, it's worth. Must-have app.

Llama uses phone masts to determine your location, so that you can change your ringer, vibrate and ringtones depending on where you are as well as the time of day. Llama provides you with sound profiles so you can quickly switch between quiet, loud, silent and normal sound settings. You can set your family, partner and children to ring even if your phone is set to silent! You can create events and home screen shortcuts to manage your sound profiles and more:
-Silence your phone at work
-Turn your Bluetooth on ready to connect your headset for a morning run
-Set your phone quiet when it's late at night and you haven't gone out
-Start the music player when a headset is connected
Llama can also do:
GPS (before Android 2.3 only or Cyanogenmod)
Kill Applications (also force-kill with root privileges)
Play, pause and other media buttons
Mobile Data (before Android 2.3 only)
Screen lock PIN/password
Set Llama variables
Screen on and off
Wifi sleep policy
Create events based off:
Day of the week
Music playback (stock Android only, requires third party developer support)
Phone start up and shut down
Screen on and off
Time of day
NOTE: Since GPS is not used, the location tracking is limited to the number of phone masts in your area. This will work best if you live in a populated area. If your home and work are covered by the same phone masts, you can try using the experimental Wifi-based location tracking. If that still doesn't work, you can remove the enter/exit conditions to make time-based profiles.

- If it Force Closes, please email me the /sdcard/Llama/LlamaLog.txt
- Don't blame Llama for the lack of your operator's phone masts in your area. You can still use Llama with the experimental location methods, or time-based events
-Read your calendar (aka 'Your personal information') for any calendar conditions you set up
-A bug/feature of Android means Llama also has to have the write calendar permission, but it doesn't actually write anything nor send invite emails
-Your accounts so it can run an account sync if your events say so
-Write to your SD card to import/export your area, events and profiles, and to write error logs
-Call-state and read contacts to let you choose which of your contacts can still ring even when silent
-Llama DOES NOT have internet permission. Your data isn't going anywhere

It help me to configure my profiles with a lot of possible actions / condition without using a lot of battery. A must for me. I make an exception for the import / export function that must be corrected : No instruction where it save the zip file. Import / export seems buggy on smartphone with sdcard (Didn't find where it exported and when i tried to import, no success - tried with loc /sdcard/Ll
No competition with tasker, hey! It's free. Do most of the things without eating battery too much... Nice app!
Easier to use than Tasker with powerful enough features. All it needs now is either Holo Blue or Material Design!
I can't get it to work on 5.0. Need to turn Bluetooth on/off when Pocket Cast is on/off but nothing happens. Worked great on 4.4.4. I sent an email 4 days ago but haven't heard anything. Unlocked and rooted Nexus 5.
Loved this app on KK but now the app can't toggle Mobile Data On/Off. Please fix this soon.
Used to have Llama to automatically switch screen rotation on and off depending on which app i was using but this no longer seems to work with android l, please fix this issue!
