"If THIS then... boost your productivity"

Reviewed by / Apr 25, 2014

Triggers use your phone's sensors to automatically change settings, launch apps or send messages

Your phone can do for you way more than what you imagine. Why not to make the most of it? Trigger is going to help you with that. Trigger is nothing but an IFTTT (If This Then That) app. In other words, it allows you to set automatic actions that must be performed when some conditions are met. For example, "silence your phone when you get to work" or "Launch GMaps when you connect to your car's Bluetooth". Nice stuff that help you save battery, time and efforts.

Of course, those are presets you can find on the app (along with others). But the strongest point of Triggers is that you can create your own tasks. The current Triggers you can toy with are NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi. However, the Pro version also includes Geofence (Location), Battery Level and Time. Getting them would you cost $3 via in-app purchase.

The current version is enough to discover if it's worth upgrading. You can build your own tasks such as "When connected to Work-WiFi checkin-in on social media like Foursquare or Google Places" or "When connecting to car's Bluetooth send a SMS". Just play with it, combine featuers such as volume level, brightness, notification light settings, messages, apps, alarms, calendar events and much more.

The future is the IFTTT powered by people. You can start right now.

Developer's original description available here
Bored of putting your phone on silent every time you get into the office? Tired of turning off Bluetooth to conserve battery every time juice gets low?

This app interacts with your surroundings to configure settings on your phone automatically. Combine triggers and actions to create tasks, then activate the tasks that you create with conditions that you set!

Here are examples of what you can do:

In your car: Use Bluetooth as a trigger to open GPS and launch your favorite music app

On your nightstand: Program an NFC tag to set your ringer to vibrate, dim your display and set an alarm

In your home: Configure mobile data to turn off when your phone detects your own Wifi

The current triggers are as follows:


And as part of our Pro-Upgrade we also have these additional triggers:

-Battery Level
-Time triggers

And here are a few examples of the actions that you can perform:

- Change WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile hotspot, airplane mode (root users in Jelly Bean and up), auto-sync, GPS (root users), and mobile data settings.
- Change your volumes or notification tones.
- Change your display brightness, timeout, auto-rotation, or notification light settings
- Check in on social media like Foursquare or Google Places
- Send messages using Twitter, SMS, Email, or Glympse
- Start or stop Applications (root required for stopping applications), dock modes, open URLs, speak text, or navigate to an address
- Set Alarms or create calendar events

This app allows you to easily program your device to do the actions you do regularly.
So go ahead and create your own combinations to automate your life. The only limit is what you can come up with!

The Wall Street Journal calls it "living in the future."

Additional actions can be found when experimental features are enabled in advanced settings. Auto lock screen and airplane mode are restricted by Android but we've created some work around solutions for these actions. (Note: They aren't 100% reliable which is why they're classed as "experimental features").

Some demos can be viewed on the application website

Note: When using NFC Tags you can create a Switch task that will toggle between two tasks with each tap.

We're always working on adding new actions to Tasks. Please get in touch if there's something you'd like to do that's not currently offered.

This application supports NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4 Tags as well as third party NFC Enabled tags like the MIFARE Classic, DESFire, Ultralight and Ultralight C. Now supporting read-only tags & allowing you to write any amount of data to any tag using Tagstand's cloud service. This allows you to use your tags just as you would any writable tag without worrying about size.

All permissions are listed and explained here:

This app uses Google Analytics for aggregate, anonymous data collection, which can be opted out of from the settings page.

    The geofence trigger works seamlessly with toggling WiFi and data.

    I cannot find the option to CLOSE the app I set it to open. The one star is because there does not seem to be an easy way yo find out how. I can set a second trigger when disconnecting from bluetooth, but the only option is to OPEN something else, not close

    I've been using this app the part few weeks and it's been working great. I use it to automatically put the phone on vibrate when I hit my work Wi-Fi then another trigger to turn it back up on my home Wi-Fi. The app trigger also works well for activating gps on Bluetooth in the car. Great work!
