Automate your Android device

Llama (free): Llama

Or Tasker (paid): Tasker


Have your phone automate some tasks, such as (not an exhaustive list):

  • Turn off Account Sync at night (do you really need to get your emails while you sleep?)
  • Put your device in vibration mode if you're at work, Monday to Friday between 8 and 5. Turn off vibration when you leave (or are no longer in that time period)
  • Start the navigation app once you connect via Bluetooth to your car, or with an NFC tag on your dashboard
  • Set screen brightness depending on the time of the day
  • Turn WiFi on at home and work, off everywhere else
  • Take an action based on the contents of your calendar

That's just a small sample of what those apps can do: search the web for more example. Tasker can do more, but Llama is free.


I'm not affiliated with either apps.
