Edit: I was able to make an action active during only during a certain time window by having two dedicated helper actions that turned it on and off at specific times. This was rather convoluted, and I wish it had been a setting in the main action itself, or had been suggested in documentation. The action works well though since I got it set up!

This is a great app. Works reliably and efficiently. Very easy to use and provides a great deal of customization and automation without rooting. Has problems with turning off WiFi when out of range, and trigging Bluetooth rules incorrectly when multiple connections exist (like a smartwatch and a car at the same time), but I suspect that has to do with things outside of the app's control.

App has always been a little glitchy, but its usefulness outbalanced that until recently. I've never gotten a response from support from the handful of times I've emailed them about issues over the past few years, but I've generally been able to figure out solutions on my own. Now the app isn't working at all, and since I can't fix it this time, lack of support means the app is now useless.
