These are just some of the many ways MacroDroid can help make your Android life easier. This is how it works in 3 easy steps:
1. Choose a trigger
The trigger is what signals the macro to begin. MacroDroid has over 70 triggers that can be used to initiate your macro. Location-based triggers such as GPS, cell towers etc., device status triggers like battery level, app opening/closing, and sensor triggers such as shaking, light levels, and connectivity triggers such Bluetooth, Wifi, and Notifications.
Macros can be automatically triggered, but you also have the option to place a shortcut on your homescreen or use the Macrodroid sidebar.
2. Choose the actions you would like to automate.
MacroDroid can do more than 100 actions that you would normally perform by hand. Connect to your Bluetooth device or Wifi device. You can select volume levels, talk text (such as your incoming notifications), set a timer and dim your screen. Tasker plugin is also available.
3. Optionally, Configure Constraints.
You can set constraints to limit the power of macrofire when you need it.
You live near your workplace and only wish to use your company’s Wi-Fi during work hours. You can set a restriction to limit when the macro can be invoked. MacroDroid has 50 types of constraints: connected devices, battery level, time and day constraints and headphones inserted.
MacroDroid can also be used with Tasker or Locale plugins, which will expand the possibilities.
MacroDroid’s unique interface features a Wizard, which guides you step-by-step through the creation of your first macros.
You can also use an existing template in the template section to customize it to suit your needs.
