I was a Tasker user for years until AutoMate came up in the news as revolutionary with its flow charts. After some research I also found Automagic and of those three, it's the best solution for me. Modern interface compared to Tasker, lots of integrated features where you needed a Tasker-plugin before and much easier for complex tasks than AutoMate.
Automagic is without doubt the best of all the automation apps (I tried most), so many triggers, actions and the amazing flow diagrams for routines. The recent update allowing custom widgets to be draggable allows awesome possibilities, I made my own mini keyboard for programming. I designed a single small widget which allows complete control of my device, WiFi, Bluetooth, media player, mini launcher all in one. The developer is helpful and listens to users.
I also have tasker. And not using both because I don't know what to automate in everyday use. But in my testings I find automagic simply amazing! Maybe I am either too busy or perhaps plain lazy to put this app to better use.
I can't imagine going without this app. Having an Android device without Automagic now seems as absurd as giving up my smartphone for an old flip phone.
Powerful, stable, fun and EASY to visually develop tools for automation. Swiss army knife of utilities. Better and easier than Automate and Tasker. Good support. I am not a developer, but I am able to: 1) Set phone to vibrate and auto text reply when I am busy in meetings. 2) Turn on bluetooth when I am driving, and turn it off when I am not. 3) Adjust automatically the sound volume depending on surrounding noise level.
In a word. Excellent. Far better than apps like Tasker, so much easier. I spent hours with tasker trying to write a script and did it with Automatic within 15 minutes. You don't need to be a coder or have massive amounts of technical knowledge to use this app.
