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 and Portugese language. Preliminary work is underway on Spanish (and other) translations 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.

    I finally found a replacement for Smart Actions. I'm able to make the phone do what I want it to do when I want it. Very very happy. The only problem is that triggers copied from templates do not always work. Replacing them fixes the problem. I'm a supporter for sure. Finally have a reason to root the phone - for gps on/off

    This is the first app that made me say "oh my god". Easy to use, powerful, tons of wide-ranging functionality, and caused me to wonder how I lived without it! I've had it 30 minutes and I already bought the pro version! Thanks to the dev for all the hard work. Sprint Samsung Note 3.

    The possibilities seem endless. I went ahead and paid for pro almost right away- first app I've ever upgraded to pro on. Amazing.
