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:

# Increasing safety during commuting by reading your incoming notifications (via Text to Speech) and sending automated responses via email or SMS
# 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)
# 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.

Fantastic app, if you can think of repetitive process or annoyance that your phone gives you, you can typically find a way to use this app to help improve your experience. A simple example of an annoyances I've alleviated: I only ever use Auto-Rotate to look at pictures/videos/badly laid out webpages, and am always annoyed when it's back on later. I made it so when Auto-Rotate turns on, 15 minutes later it turns back off.

Adjusted my 5 star rating from 2018. I used to love this app, but it has become increasingly nonfunctional with android upgrades. It is still ok for some very basic stuff, but as of Android 13, it outright freezes the system on a regular basis, and I had to disable it or turn off most of the most useful macros. Too bad. It used to be one of my favorite apps for many years.
