"Put your mobile device to work for you"

MacroDroid allows users to set up macros for in-device task automation

Macros or IFTTT (If This Then That) formulas can help you be more efficient by automatizing tasks on your Android device.

MacroDroid comes packed with 30 macro presets (templates) such as "Night power save" which puts the device into airplane mode every weekday from 23.00 to 6.30, "Auto answer call" when phone's connected to a Bluetooth device or "Play media on headphone insert".

Besides that, users can add their own macros by combining 20 different trigger, 30 actions and 10 available constraints. As you can imagine, dozens of automated tasks can be set. Let your imagination fly.

From settings you can customize notifications and logs at your whim, adjust shaking sensitivity for shake trigger among other preferences for specific triggers and actions.

Finally, you can check out MacroDroid's forum to get some ideas for macro design, help and troubleshooting.

Developer's original description available here
MacroDroid is a task automation and configuration app that focuses heavily on usability with a simple, attractive UI and logical step by step process.

From AndroidTapp.com: "MacroDroid is an utterly brilliant, and less expensive, alternative (to Tasker) that is definitely worth trying out" (4.6/5)

Please note MacroDroid is currently only available in the English language. Preliminary work is underway on a Spanish translation which we hope to make available in the coming months.

A few examples of what MacroDroid can automate:

• Shake the device to upload the last photo to Facebook.
• Turn on Wifi or Data connection when you launch a particular app (and off again when closed).
• Respond to an incoming SMS by sending your current location.
• Toggle the power button to tell you the time (e.g. when its in your pocket).
• Use NFC tags to configure the device (turn on bluetooth, set volume etc).

Creating a custom Macro is easy:

• Click 'Add Macro'
• Select a trigger from a list - (e.g. Battery Level).
• Configure any trigger specific settings - (e.g. Battery Level < 10%)
• Select an action from a list - (e.g Enable/Disable Wifi)
• Configure any action specific setting - (e.g. Disable Wifi)
• Add more actions as required (up to 10)
• Optionally select a constraint from a list - (e.g. Day of the Week)
• Configure constraint as required (e.g. Saturday and Sunday)
• Add more constraints as required (up to 10).
• Choose a name and category for the Macro.

MacroDroid includes a list of template Macros to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the application. These templates can be used as is, or customised to meet your needs.

    Anyone that writes code understands what I mean by bunch of IF statements. Very useful app. A rooted device allows more functionality but not necessary.

    Great app so good I did something I never do, I bought the pro version. Simple to use. Consistent and reliable. Did lose my macros once, hence 4 stars, but had them backed up. Just want to be able to clear an ever expanding log file.

    Good app, works great. But twice already, it has deleted my macros and I have to go back in and add them.

    Love this app! It replaced two or three other apps. Automated half my life! Well worth the paid update. I would like to see a Take Photo trigger. Also, I can't get the SMS to work properly. FINDME and WHEREAREYOU templates do not work. Fix these issues an
