Have been using this app for 5+ years. At the beginning it was great, but slowly it has become obsolete. No major updates (new features) have been released for a long time. It is easy to use and the UI is great, but it lacks support of a lot of controls that other apps can manage (look at Automate for example.) The big disappointment here is the geo location feature, which has never worked for me. I paid for this application when it was the best out there; today I would put my money somewhere else.
Sucks. Does anyone actually work on this thing anymore or what!? Get this fixed! Update - For whatever reason, it changes my "Display Timeout" to "after 72 hours of inactivity" instead of "30 seconds" when triggering the iHeartRadio App. A year or two ago it was fantastic. Now it does (or doesn't) do whatever it wants. It decides what triggers (and parts of triggers) it feels like triggering, or it changes part of them entirely, regardless of my settings. Here's hoping it returns to its formerly awesome app soon. In the event it is phone related (I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared cache everyway possible, and factory reset (😠) my device). I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Sprint. Hopefully that will help.
I used to use the app just fine previously and loved it's functionality. However, recently, I'm noticing the app doesn't allow me to play a sound when a task runs. I used to have this enabled so as to notify me when a task ran while the phone was in my pocket. Now when I try to add a sound to a task, the app gets stuck in a loop, asking me to add more triggers. Would appreciate this issue being looked at. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Android 7.0 in Canada.
I needed something fairly simple: turn off WiFi when my tablet disconnects from my home network to save battery. It seemed to do it once, but then it wouldn't do it again the next day. The Automate app can do that pretty well, and has TONS more capabilities.
Very buggy. When I turn-on wifi, it automatically runs wifi-off task which actually should be run to turn-off wifi when I disconnect from my home wifi. Also don't know why but Triggers not getting triggerred sometimes. For example, Wifi-On at 4:05 pm didn't trigger today... Sound to Silent at 12:30 also didn't work. Sound to Normal mode at 2:10pm too didn't work.... Is there any way to view log files so that can know root cause of the issue? Or is there any bug in the app?
For Android 7 I had to remove app from battery optimization to work correctly. Love app. I use it to change screen brightness and start apps (Pandora and Waze) when I Bluetooth connect in car. Lower sounds/ringer when connected to work Wi-Fi. Louder when at home but quiet after 11pm.
Improved UX by fixing crashes and bugs.
