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.
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 for the Macro.

Amazing, very powerful... I hope the dev will accommodate my outlandish requests
Love this app. I have it automatically launch my Google Music when connected to my car, switch to ring when charging at home, and override vibrate when getting messages from important people. My only feedback would be that Send SMS action would be nice if
I love it!
Simply the most useful app I have.
Wonderful support from all.
very good app, well designed
