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
NOW WITH ANDROID WEAR SUPPORT

MacroDroid is a task automation and configuration app that focuses heavily on usability with a simple 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 available in English, Spanish, German, French, Portugese, Polish.and Turkish

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.

    I had setup a task on my nexus 6 to disable my lock screen when connected to my home WiFi. Ever since I had this app running with that app, I have been getting black blank screen with home, back button and notification bar visible. None of the buttons work. It is possible to pull down notification bar, but even after selecting some notifications, the screen stays black and blank. I had to restart

    Update 2: I think I've resolved the TTS issue by correcting an unseen/unannounced error in the TTS area of settings. I'm now getting the time announced and SMS being read. Update 1: Got a quick response from the developer. He thinks there may be a TTS (text to speech) problem, answering a couple of the issues. He recommended I used the "Call Active" trigger instead of the "Incoming Call" and
