I don't know what I did without it.. Over the past few weeks I have added rules here and there to accommodate different things. Now that most of my phone is automated I feel like I really do have a smart phone. I would highly recommend this app! Only recommendations to the user I have would be to automate items as you go. Originally I tried to automate everything all at once and got overwhelmed trying to figure out the all of the settings. Runs amazing on my Note 4. I am currently running the pro version.
When vibrate, speak written text, etc. are used with composite action, they keep repeating for ever. there should be a way to limit number of iteration, by default only once, and preferably repetition with definable intervals. also, when a rule is ceased by a trigger, it should be able to do some closing tasks. for example, if I enabled 'screen rotation' while the rule activated, it will disable 'screen rotation' when the rule stops working. Thanks.
Very mixed. Basically no support I've been using it for several years. It's fine for simple stuff, but not at all work ready or reliable. For the most part it's simple and clean. Location and Wi-Fi based rules are hopeless - all over the place. They trigger randomly and repeatedly. Rules stop working without warning or reason. Diagnosing problems is very tough. Support is dire - actually worse, it's nonexistent.
I've been using the free version for years. I love the concept and I felt I had been using it for so long did I might as well help the developer out with some change. 4 stars because I can't trigger multiple times for one rule. Also, I'm not able to answer calls automatically.
Love running this app, even if just for the basics, like being able to set power saving features at certain low batt levels such as lower screen brightness & shorten timeout. I can do things like set it to disable WiFi when leaving my house, re-enable upon return. One of my favorites so far is...reading the contact's name out loud when they're calling! It's practically an audio/speech based caller ID system! If I don't have a contact for the caller, it reads out the number. I'm sure I've only begun to scratch the surface with what I'll be able to do with this app, just discovered there's a shell plug-in for writing commands, scripts?! With so many useful rules already created online in the Rules Market too, it's quick and easy to have several helpful features setup off the bat. Have installed on every phone I've owned so far, as it's become one of my necessary go-to apps for helping me manage and run my phone the way I like it. Keep up the great work AutomateIt Team! Always looking forward to what can be done next!
Latest Update Still Broken! This has been an ongoing issue that is still not resolved. After the previous update, the "revised" location triggers no longer work. In fact, a lot of the "revised" triggers no longer work, like the trigger that detects when I'm moving in a car now constantly turns on just walking around my house. This is a major disappointment, as they were the main reason I use the app. They still don't work in this update either! Please fix ASAP!
