Review from Rafael Ochrymowicz
Close to devine This little app belongs on each and every Android device! If you want to be in control and automate your profiles then here's what you need. It takes a bit time to teach Llama your locations, but once done you can have it do millions of things for you automatically :-)
Not auto update the recent area For few days I saw the recent tab was not automatically updated, therefore the event was not triggered as well. If I launched the even using test action, it can function normally. I looked at recent tab activities it showed updated at random time for every few minutes, but when I arrived at work it seemed the recent activities was stopped recognizing the cells activity, thus event that I set to be triggered when I at worked was not executed. I hope developer can fix this bug.
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.
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.
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
As good as it can be for regular Android. To control the sound/screen options of so many different phones, including many that disobey the rules is a Herculean task. Those trying to create cell tower based events need to understand that a cell tower can cover 75 square miles at just 5 miles from the tower. Multiple overlapping cells only broadens the area. Use WiFi as a trigger since its range is feet, not miles. Even then, in the garden, yard, or deck, you'll stay at the quieter indoor setting.
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.
