I tried to like it, but it just doesn't work for me. My home and work profiles are 2 miles apart, and use some of the same cell towers. I found my phone going from silent to normal spontaneously. I know you can lock the profile, but if you have to do that, what's the point of automation? Why is the location based only on cell towers, why not network/wifi based location? Or is that in the paid version? I'm not sure. I downloaded Tasker instead. Sorry. Tasker has never failed me.
Works perfectly - no more forgetting to put my phone on silent and being "that guy" in the office. --edit-- unfortunately since changing from an s7 Edge to a note 8 running Android 7.1.1, llama has stopped working. It detects the towers and changes profile, but the profile is not working as it did. Said it's o silent earlier, but it was ringing. Hopefully someone picks up this project and gets it working again. I would happily pay for a premium, working product.
Very capable, very powerful. It can do a lot from the get-go. If you have special ideas, you can deploy the Llama variables for more complicated action triggering. Update in 2016 September: Llama is still the best, even under Marshmallow Android 6.0.1 It works flawlessly on my Xiaomi Mi 4. If you want to use ‘active app’ trigger, then download the .apk file from the developer’s website. If, for some reason, you search for an alternative that similarly offers profiles capability, try #1 Profile - Auto Tasker.
Its pretty good I like using llama a lot, it doesnt drain my battery too much, although I don't use GPS for my location. I would like to be able to use WiFi to help determine my location, but I'm not sure how to do that. Also, I would love to see more use of texts & calls. For example, if you had 2 missed calls from the same person, it would turn your volume up. Or, if you weren't home & you had a missed call, you could set it to auto-respond with a text. If it had the texting & calling integration, I would give it 5 stars
Works like a charm Have been an avid user of this app in my Samsung and nexus devices. It works like a charm. Makes ur device very customised and you can literally program it to behave in a way you want with features like llama variables. The only thing I miss in this app is a way to export and import your settings. This has coated me a lot of time every time I upgrade to setup all my rules again. Love rest of the features and a simple straight forward ui. Kudos to the developer.
Great on all but Lollipop I've loved this app for years, it was just perfect and I thought it was about time I donated for the service it has provided, but before I did I updated to Lollipop. Now the location sticks so it just fails in its main purpose. On top of this due to Lollipop changes, it cannot bring the phone out of silent mode, nor turn data on or off. I could live with these issues if the location didn't stick and it could use another app (like Data Toggle). I emailed the developer, sadly no reply. Time to move on.
