Best automation app - I've tried them all Former fan and loyal user of Llama here. Llama was abandoned by its developer in 2014 and is now virtually useless on Marshmallow. Before trying AutomateIt I tried Tasker, Condi, Automate & MacroDroid. AutomateIt strikes the best balance of power, functionality and ease of use out of all the alternatives. I can't recommend highly enough!
Helpful I've been using this app for several years, and in many cases it has been a real lifesaver. My biggest frustration recently is having rules that I've purchased and set up go missing. I was thrilled when I saw the push notification that the rules market was going to be free until the end of May, except when I go in and try to download some that seem very useful, I'm informed I have zero points and need to buy more. Puts a bad taste in my mouth.
Time based triggers and Wi-Fi based triggers do not work In three days have twice experienced time based triggers not working (i.e. could never rely on as alarm clock) and several times had Wi-Fi triggers not work until phone is unlocked (with all Android permissions and Automateit settings set correctly). Too bad, seemed like a good app.
Easy to use in a car installation I use this app to control my N7 in car installation and it works perfect. Just quick a few things I would love to see a rule like external power disconnected device go in to deep sleep,kill all apps when power disconnected something like these.Thanks
Great app! I'm impressed at the depth of options in this app! Simple to use and it works great. I have only used this free version for 2 days, but I'm blown away. I will most definitely get the paid version if I still feel this way in 2 weeks.
Many issues! Rules and triggers are overly complex. Too much micro management with the automation features. Too many ads that interrupt the rules. Some screens do not honour the hardware Back button (Language screen). This app could have potential if the UI is simplified- the complexity should be handled at the application level and not at the UI level. Anyway, I found DroidSet. The developer of this app should look at the simplified and powerful automation feature of DroidSet as a guide. Uninstall this app for now.
• Add language filter to rules market - By default, only rules in app or device language are shown. you can disable the filter or select specific languages from the app settings screen. More details at http://automateitapp.com/rules-market-language-filter/
