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).
You can also create a shortcut on the homescreen of your device or run 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 over 50 constraint types.

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

= For more experienced users =

This app is fantastic. It used to be even more powerful in 2020, but unfortunately the Android OS has stopped granting third parties access to very basic functions/information (such as the name of the network that the phone just connected to). Still very useful for things like sounding an alert when my battery gets too hot, but it was even more useful to me before Android stopped allowing the aforementioned access.

I honestly don't give this app much thought because it just works! It does its thing quietly in the background and I never have to fight or tinker with it. I wish I could say that for more Android apps. My use cases are fairly simple--adjusting volume and screen levels based on time, location, Bluetooth connections, etc. That said, the capabilities of this app are vast and quite impressive.

TLDR: Pretty good app, would recommend. Premium is very reasonably priced(one time only). Will come back and rate higher if color recognition ever gets introduced.----Would be nice if the app had screen region/pixel color detection. Has a screen dimmer, which is very nice for preserving screen lifespan. Made very user friendly, but input efficiency is slightly lower as a result. Good macro trigger options, especially the drawer was convenient to use; many options to trigger macros efficiently.
