About this app

MacroDroid is the easiest way to automate tasks on your Android smartphone or tablet. Via the straightforward user interface MacroDroid makes it possible to build fully automated tasks in just a few taps.

A few examples of how MacroDroid can help you to get automated:

# Optimize your daily workflow on your phone; switch on bluetooth and start playing music when you enter your car. Or switch on WiFi when you are near your house.
# Reduce battery drain (like dimming your screen and switching Wifi off)
# Saving on roaming costs (automatically switch off your Data)
# Increasing safety during commuting by reading your incoming notifications (via Text to Speech) and sending automated responses via email or SMS
# Make custom sound and notification profiles.
# Remind you to do certain tasks using timers and stopwatches.

These are just a few examples out of limitless scenarios where MacroDroid can make your Android life a little easier. With only 3 simple steps this is how it works:

1. Select a Trigger.

The trigger is the cue for the macro to start. MacroDroid offers over 70 triggers to start your macro, i.e. location based triggers (like GPS, cell towers, etc), device status triggers (like battery level, app starting/closing), sensor triggers (like shaking, light levels, etc) and connectivity triggers (like Bluetooth, Wifi and Notifications).
Macros can be triggered automatically, but it is also possible to create a shortcut on the homescreen of your device or start using the unique and customizable Macrodroid sidebar.

2. Select the Actions you like to automate.

MacroDroid can perform over 100 different actions, that you typically would do by hand. Connect to your Bluetooth or Wifi device, select volume levels, speak text (like your incoming notifications or current time), start a timer, dim your screen, run Tasker plugin and many more.

3. Optionally: Configure Constraints.

Constraints help you to let the macro fire only when you want it to.
Living near your work, but only want to connect to your company's Wifi during work days? With a constraint you can select specific times or days that the macro can be invoked. MacroDroid offers 50 constraint types like: battery level, connected devices, time and day constraints, headphones inserted and many more.

MacroDroid is even compatible with Tasker and Locale plugins to expand the range of possibilities even further.

For beginners

MacroDroid's unique interface offers a Wizard that guides step by step through the configuration of your first macros.
It is also possible to use an existing template from the template section and customize it to your needs.
The built-in forum allows you to get help from other users, allowing you to easy learn the ins and outs of MacroDroid.

For more experienced users

MacroDroid offers more comprehensive solutions like the use of Tasker and Locale plugins, system/user defined variables, scripts, intents, advance routing like IF, THEN, ELSE clauses, use of AND + ORs

The free version of MacroDroid allows you to configure up to 5 macros. The Pro version (a small one time fee) unleashes the full power of MacroDroid and lets you create an unlimited amount of macros.

I've used several different apps of this type. IFTTT, AutomateIt, etc. & this is the best of it's kind so far. The IfTTT people got greedy & their app doesn't always work right. Others are tough to figure out. This one is strait forward, it has a very good walkthrough tutorial system & so far it does it's things right. I'm getting my phone to do what I want when I want it & having a lot of fun figuring out new ways to do things I didn't even know I wanted or were even possible. 👍🏼 Awesome job

Really good app although recently it seems to not be working correctly so I had to take away a couple of stars. I have macros set up such that when various devices disconnect from Bluetooth, I wait 30 seconds, and then I disable Bluetooth. This way for when I get out of my car Bluetooth will shut off on my phone after about 30 seconds. This was working great but no longer works. Pixel 3XL If it matters.

I love the extensive functionality of this app. It allows me to fully program multiple sets of commands for my phone. Saving me valuable time and allowing me to focus on other things. Love this app. I used the free version for 8months and then upgraded to the paid version because I became incredibly comfortable with the features and wanted more macros .
