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 user reviews :
I’m blown away. I didn’t think I would be able to get the Macro’s to work so easily especially after trying two other Automate apps first. Easy to use with a good interface even though I’m not used to computer language/terminology. There is still a whole section – variables – that I still have to get into and understand – hopefully I can find a tutorial. Then I’m sure the sky will be the limit. I must also compliment the Developer, his response time is exceptional. Thanks for a great app.
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.
