MacroDroid - Device Automation

Apk file size: 13.0 MB

MacroDroid is a powerful task automation and configuration app that focuses heavily on usability with a simple UI and logical step by step process.

A few examples of what MacroDroid can automate:

Turn on the Wifi connection when you launch a particular app (and off again when closed).
Auto respond to a specific incoming SMS by sending your current location.
Toggle the power button to tell you the time (without taking out of your pocket).
Use NFC tags to configure the device (turn on bluetooth, set volume etc).

Creating a custom macro is easy:

Click 'Add Macro'
Select a trigger from the list - (e.g. Battery Level).
Configure trigger specific settings (e.g. Battery Level < 10%)
Select an action from the list (e.g Configure Wifi)
Configure action specific setting (e.g. Disable Wifi)
Add more actions as required
(Optionally) add constraints from the list (e.g. Day of the Week)
Configure constraints as required (e.g. Saturday and Sunday)
Add more constraints as required
Choose a name and category for the macro

MacroDroid includes many built in and user shared templates to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the application and help you get started. These templates can be used as is, or easily customised to meet your needs.

Pro Version

The free version of MacroDroid is limited to five macros and displays adverts. You can upgrade in the application to allow unlimited macros and remove all adverts.

Keeps closing- Update. Fixed! Round of applause to this app that keeps going. Dev contacted me immediately after my original review and pushed update to fix issues. I'm happy to say that everything works. Great app!!!

Sean Piercy

This is app is a must have. The only issue I'm having with it right now is it plays my notifications through my speaker and Bluetooth headset which is really annoying. Please add settings to choose what playback device you want to. The one thing I would love to see added is widgets that let you toggle macros or categories. I have many categories right now (home, driving, everywhere, etc.) and have to dive into the app just to toggle them off and on. It would be really nice if you could do that easily from my home screen.

DeAnna Piercy

Good app but I do have one suggestion. Could you possibly add a way to disable wi-fi based on inactivity? If I'm uploading/downloading a file or streaming music I would like the wi-fi to stay on. But, if the app notices that no data has been transmitted (for a user defined amount of time) then it will turn it off. If you would add a template for it, demonstrating it's functionality, that would be appreciated too.

Izzul Aizad

The only automation app that enables periodic sync. Saved my battery a lot. Best app

Jasminka Star

Awesome automation! Well deserves the 5 stars!

Keith Coffman

Good app When changing from Motorola to Samsung phone, I noticed right away that I missed Motorola's Smart Actions. This app is a pretty good substitute. It doesn't do everything Smart Actions does but gets real close. It does have a few bugs, but tech support knows what's going on and seem eager to help. I purchased the app to get all the bells and whistles. Thanks for a great app, keep working to make it better!

John Ward

A must have app! Great way to automate functions on my phone/tablet!

Robert Groom

This is an awesome app so many possibilities: Shake to toggle screen rotation, Switch wifi / mobile data when entering / leaving home, Speak time when headset button pressed 3 times (for mobile in pocket), Turn data and notifications off at night. Best automation application by far.

Michael RICH

Worked like a charm. Well done. Non rooted S4, switching Mobile Data Off/On at Open/Close, for an apk that has really annoying ads.

J. Mulinix

Excellence Coupled with my gesture app, this app has revolutionized my UI. Easily one of the greatest apps in this store, why it isn't at least rated 4.9 is downright criminal.

mike miller

Decent Problems fixed, still use this app a lot everyday

Scott Lancaster

Great app, really thought out implementations. So far everything that I've needed has been a few clicks away.


Finally an app that will automatically wake up my phone after only one second! Excellent app, thanks a ton.

Vishal Kelkar

Does not wotk. Tried to configure area entered and exited based on location for wifi. Area exited worked only when manually disabling and enabling app. Area emtered never works even after enabling the app many times.

R Knit

Too limited in function This app does not interact with other apps. For example: it will open a browser, but once open, this app cannot emulate button clicks or keyboard input.

James Robinson

Help needed Since upgrading Sony xperia z3 to lollipop macros won't turn on or off data. Love this app please fix.

Siyavush Ahmadov

MY RESPECT, WELL DONE. You called me or not it dose not matter now. That was my mistake and I started it. Actually after the 1st installation I gave 5 star, but when I saw "1 Macro" ( my mistake ) that was shock for me. Wish I will soon start to work, then I will try to buy or donate :) MY RESPECT, WELL DONE. Good luck in real life.

Vincent J.

No plug-in support The app should allow other apps to integrate their functionality in it (e.g. like Tasker)

Daniel Mashao

It seems to work well - but I could not use it I have a simple problem. When not using my WiFi at home, then switch on hotspot. When at home switch off hotspot and switch on WiFi. Well macrodroid cannot do it. I understand there is some chicken and egg issue but I had hoped it could do it.

Matthew Dennis

Potential It has potential, but falls short or being a macro. App can't interact with the app once it loads, touch options don't work for my galaxy s5 4.4

Donald Van Dyke

Day/Time triggers can't be set on Samsung S6 I have always loved this program when I used it with my old Motorola, but there is no way to set a day/time trigger with my new Samsung S6. Please fix.

Curly Locks

Great app until Lollipop broke some of its functions I was attracted to the advertised function: "Turn on Wifi or Data connection when you launch a particular app (and off again when closed)" I've had it working for a while and loved the ability to turn my data on for specific apps when I was away from my Wifi. However, Lollipop was recently pushed to my phone, and the macros stopped working. Developer advised me that Lollipop now requires root to do this function. So if you need it to do this function, you are out of luck if/when you get Lollipop. (Thanks Google).

Sadiq pv

Compliant I cannot take picture on this app .it sows take picture failed .

Robert Gaertner

The best so many possibilities This is my dream

Jean D

Awesome app So cool to actually be able to 'code' macros for so many things! Gives normal users the feeling of being a developer!

Wen-Ping Chen

Works well except for the GPS control.

Giridharan Santhanam

Brilliant app The application is brilliant. Works as expected. Does not drink battery.

Travis Louden

Works So far everything works

Brad Wyatt

The Best

Tristram Bovell

Great app, responsive developer Really like the work done to create this great app. Helps automate repetitive tasks and solves many a problem on the phone. I'm using a HTC One M8 and had an issue with the app... Contacted the Dev. And writhing a few days a new release was put out fixing the problem. Total respect. This is how all developers should respond to their customers. Great job Jamie, keep it up!

Frank Lu

really brilliant you must be regret if you didn't pay for it! really worth !

Sykes King

First Time Giving An App ***** ... And it totally deserves it! Just one thing though, sometimes it doesn't open data especially when moving between apps that need data. Please look into this.

José Silva

Root not working on 5.1 Data is not turning on and auto sync is not turning off for me on android 5.1 nexus 5. Will you fix it please? This is such a handy app! Edit: Thank you for your reply, hope I get to enjoy this app again soon, cheers. Edit 2: after the last update everything works except turning auto sync on/off on 5.1

João Vargem

Very good I haven't tried all macros but the ones I needed worked very well. There's a limit to 5 macros on the free version. The application keeps shutting down after some time, which is unfortunate.

John Scott

SmartActions Replacement Replacing my bloated ROM meant I also needed a replacement for Motorola SmartActions. MacroDroid lacks some of the polish buts makes up for it in functionality. Well worth the money for the pro version.

Marc Victor

Great app. Got it doing what I want in a few hours. I could not find a Missed Call Trigger, is that possible? Also, Get Current Weather, and a way to detect when you are driving, walking, running, etc.

Chris Ellingson

Great for GSM controllers and alarms. I have PLC programming experience and I must say I like the layout of this app. The only suggestion I have is to add a search box for the contact list. I paid for the full version with no regrets.

Dmitry Smirnov

Ideal! But please make dark color scheme. Only this app can set flight mode on my 4.4.2 android! Great. Tasker, Automateit and others apps failed.

Дмитрий Миломаев

Issue with GPS on android 5.01 Device is rebooting when copying file for GPS on/off. And this settings are not updating.

Ashy Samurai

Nice app The only thing I miss is "auto tap". There are a lot of apps with this feature which requares root. It would be nice to see non-root solution in your application (if possible). Thanks.

Artiom Romanov

Thanks for your answer! I've visited OneSkyApp and already translated about 30% of words in your program. And I've got an idea of creating multi-triggers just becouse i need to activate macro when at least one of WiFi networks is out of range and for three networks I need three macros! Looking for update, Artiom. P. S. White theme is much better than black! ;)

Антон Куваев

Great app Excellent job. Bought pro version. Please consider following improvements: 1. Maybe it's a good idea to group triggers/constraints by categories. 2. When device is set in silent/vibration mode it would be nice to be able to receive calls from specific numbers eg family members with ringtones while all other numbers are on mute.

Dmitry Vorobyov

substr(value) will be nice

K Dmitry

Great app! Please add the Russian language.

Alexander Ternopolski

Good app Excelent work. How can I make macros for dialing any phone number? Is there any mask (* or ?) for that?

Ihar T

Good simple interface (yet less possibilities than tasker has) Good app, some features (like toggle mobile data) don't work on galaxy s 2 plus. Doesn't recognize installed speech engines either (says you don't have any installed)

Paul Oldham

Perfect. Good app. Bought the Pro upgrade to add more macros but location trigger doesn't work. The app won't let me set a location trigger on the map with gps on or off. Would have been 5 stars but this is a big issue for me. I'm expecting a refund. UPDATE: issue fixed and working perfectly, thanks guys. Would give more than 5* if I could.

Jim Shumard

Updates are changing notification bar icons The update today (6/19/15) changed all of my notification bar icons. Having said that... Still love this app...

Marc Victor

Great app. Got it doing what I want in a few hours. I could not find a Missed Call Trigger, is that possible? Also, Get Current Weather, and a way to detect when you are driving, walking, running, etc. Great, Activity Recognition works well, very low on battery (Just using In Vehicle trigger) ... Good job. Now how about the Missed Call Trigger?

Sandra Grossman

Requires root? Doesn't work even for basic macros, such as turn my phone to "sleep" mode at night and back on in the morning. Does this mean that for even the most elementary actions, I have to root my phone? Why would I do that? I was quite excited about the whole automation idea, but I have to see that it works first. And no, I will not root my phone, since, among other unknowns, it will also invalidate my warranty. Whatever fancy stuff it can do, if it can't put my phone to airplane mode at night and wake it up in the morning without rooting, I don't want it.

Daniel Low

Doesn't seem to work sometimes System log shows macro invoked but reality doesn't seem to be so.

J Galgano

Doesn't seem to do anything... To clarify, it seems that none of the triggers actually trigger. The notification icon never changes from "standard". Obviously not the apps fault since so many love it. Still disappointed because I would like to move on from the I have been using for 4 years.

Paul Hawkins

Great App ! Very Handy ! Now, if it only had a mute button for the microphone, it would be a five-star app !

Mr. Lucky

Powerful, Yet Easy to Use! I thought the 3.5.2 update was about ANDROID activities, not personal ones LOL. Please consider adding Android activity trigger/constraint.

Caleb Carr

Good, but could be better I would like to see a constraint that allows the trigger to fire when a SMS from "________" contains, excludes, matches, or any is received. I would also like to see a setting that either requires multiple triggers to fire in order to execute, instead of right now when you have multiple triggers it's any of those triggers that can execute; I know that this takes over constraints job a little, but there are situations where having the need to fire multiple triggers is better. I can provide some if you want?

Derek White

Still Learning Still learning what Macrodroid can do, so far it is awesome.

Aaron Soh

Fantastic! Easy to use. Among those that I tried, this has slightly more features to play with. Hope to see more trigger controls like multiple trigger conditions. Thank you for such a great app!

Steve Johnson

I've been using this a while now to automate functions such as turn off the LED at night. It's far better than sonys smart connect.

DeWayne Smith

Great app, but buggy with Galaxy S6 Edge Can't control hotspot...keep getting error. Device needs to be rooted to fix thanks to newer andoid devices doing whats "best" for us. Insert sarcasm. Great support from the Macrodroid team.

Adam Germain

Tried the others, stuck with this one Very easy to use.

A Google User

Easy and powerful automation tool! This is a very powerful automation tool. It's a lot easier to use than Tasker, without any real loss of power. The continued improvements are awesome and well worth the price of admission. If it had support for some sort of IF/THEN/ELSE construct, or a flowchart construction option, this would be the unquestioned winner of automation, and worthy of 10 stars. It just needs some way to return to an earlier state (or the previous one, at least) when the current conditions no longer apply.

Ben Stevens

Great app I love the app, but ive found one thats easier to use. I think the developers should take some insparation from the app 'automate' as it allows bigger programs though

Steve Cagney

Great Llama Replacement Finally gave up hoping Llama would be updated for Lollipop. This is a great substitute and even easier to setup and use.

Palo Pálfy

not possible to choose RingTone = Silent looks like this app can do anything, but I was shocked that Action Set RingTone to Silent is NOT an option, because this is default android function. Another suprise was, that for VIP/emergency contacts there is no whitelist option, you have to create separate macro for each of them.

Raymond Yonas

Photo resolution is low But why when taking photos automatically the image resolution is low?

Donald Hicks

Simply the best I've been using tasker for years, but MacroDroid has won me over. It's easy to use. It doesn't take long to figure out to use like tasker.

Amnon Pahima

stopped working... worked for 3 months than stopped, possibly a bug in one of the updates... S5, rooted.

David Motola

Need a little help.. Hey Developers - Awesome app! Very well designed. I'm trying to set a macro to automatically open an app every 15 mins...I cant figure out how to do it though. Does this app offer that option?

Angelo Freitas

Powerful and easy to use

Marc St-Pierre

Great! Best one I have tried yet!

Wayde Carniel

Amazing app, even better support How many apps can you say that after finding an error or unsure of a specific function, you get a prompt response? Not many I bet... Couldn't go without this app, functions are awesome and the Dev support for this is great! Highly recommend this app, you will not regret it.

Sean Piercy

Got it all figured out now. This is easily one of the coolest and most useful apps available. An absolute must for any serious Android user. Great apps like this are why I stick with Android. I've been using MacroDroid for several months to do simple things like toggle a few settings based on where I am, but didn't get into advanced configuration until now. After a brief paragraph from the developer on using variables, I'm now able to easily configure more advanced Macros (using widgets and the notification launcher). It is a versatile and extremely powerful app that I would highly recommend to anyone! Truly amazing support too.

Liam Spencer

Great App! Has tons of triggers and actions and the ones I needed either were not available or didn't work on the other apps (call answered and speakerphone off).

Adrian Sewell

Like shopping blindfolded. The free version is very limited, understandable. You want me to purchase the pro version, also understandable. If you have confidence in the your product, why not allow free access, to all features, for a limited time (7 days) to see if the product will work for me. I would gladly spend the money, but I will not shop blindfolded. UNINSTALLING!

Elena Sherbina

Great application Simple, elegant and powerfull. It does all that I need!

Mohamed Samir

very useful app Try it!! ?

Muhammed Adil

Amazing! Very easy to use and helpful..& yeah it's works fine :D

Jervis Dabreo

A must have app One of my favorite and most used apps. Automate your device and make it yours. Shake to place a call, flip to change audio tracks, turn on/off airplane mode on schedule...yada, yada, yada. It's easy to set up and really works.

Tee Wrecka

Best automation app. Android 6.0 CM13 The user-friendly interface makes it very easy to set up tasks, and unlike other automation apps I did not have to install a million plugins and secondary apps to work alongside it. Most triggers/actions can be handled by this app alone. Great for building your own antitheft system that can do more than standalone antitheft apps. I manually moved this to /system so it won't be wiped in a factory reset and it worked fine

Rahul Sathanapalli

Really Simple to use and IMMENSELY powerful! Great app! I'd love to see some more advanced stuff in the future updates like passing variables to a macro and more advanced flow control. However I totally understand if it has purposefully been left out for the sake of simplicity.EDIT: Love the new LOGICAL CONSTRAINTS! Allows us to add so much more complexity with ease.

Anup Shetti

Awesome It's a helpful app for automating certain actions. I've one issue, kindly add ability to set day n time in a single constraint. Like if I want a particular action to happen at 1700 hrs on Monday n 1300 hrs on Tuesday, I can't do that since I've to select time n day separately.

Stanley Kaytovich

Harness the full power of Android Your imagination is the limit. Take your Android device and turn it into a true life tool. The interface and options are easy to configure, but are very powerful. Keep up the great work.

jacob rogers

Great I've been using if than fir awile but was a battery drainer. Great customization and easy to use no issues and runs great on droid turbo

Derek Sims

Fantastic I tried to get by with the free version, but it's too helpful to only have 5 macros. I don't regret supporting this app one bit. I love it. Now running 20 macros and growing.

Nicholas B.

Never worked a day. 3 macro's ranging from disabling WiFi based on cell to disabling data and Bluetooth. Never activated. Ow, that last one activated once... 3 hours AFTER I parked my car... Ps: to developer: number of downloads doesn't mean a thing. Kim K's game gets downloaded a lot and it's crap too ;)


Did not work Will not hold what I set, does not do what I set it to do at all. Uninstalled.

Rob Balch

Powerful and intuitive Easier to use than Tasker and integrates with Tasker if need be (not needed for me yet!)

Deddy Supangat

I'm really love This apps work for people who understand about technology.

lizwe mdakane

5 star app Add physical buttons configuration and get 10 stars ☺

Jeff Richard Arellano

Simple, but advance Much better than tasker app

Mike Railey

The skies the limit Love this program. It has limitless opportunities to adjust your phone to suit your needs.

Muhammed Waseel

Got what I want Well thanks .. :))

Stephanie H

Useful Love the app i am still learning it

Prashanth Gowda

Excellent , tons of options

naveen udawella

How is this app not the hottest thing in android right now. It's amazing in terms of both functionality and creativity. Great app.

Hossine Djemaï

Missing feature Hey where's the launch and press action why'd you remove it! Edit: oh lol sorry forgot about the experimental features thing, thank you :) also, could you suggest a good locale/tasker plugins app? Secure settings doesn't work at all.

tatertot joe

Great Very simple easy to use exactly what I wanted

Stefan Kühn

Very cool

John Hemmings

I've been using Macrodroid for a while now and I love what you can do with this application. The developer is always quick to respond.

Ranjit Benipal

Best of best Best automation application u can see in play store good work must have app

Tapio Säyppö

Excellent, fantastic programming! REALLY GOOD! :-) Only one (or two) wish(es), though. There is the Fill Cipboard Action but could we also have Paste from Clipboard Action and Paste Predefined Text Action? Thank you. :-)

Ty Nichols

Easy and Awesome This app offers a lot of customizability options for your device. Setting up a macro is simple and quick.

mezan rahaman

its good and enough for me.. tasker is good, but not easy to use... like MacroDroid

delt alifalafel

Very nice, but one important function is missing: run arbitrary shell commands as a triggered action.

Michael Stumbles

Excellent Used most of the big players in automation and this app by far is the most reliable and simple to use.

Vishal Jagannath

Ends my long search Have been looking for such an app for a long time. Finally found a good app for it. Simple and has a lot of customisations

Anthony Wyatt

Awesome tools This app has awesome tools to utilize, only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the community is still growing and there isn't a large selection of quality. The reason the app isn't effective, or doesnt have the quality you should expect, is because there is a massive language barrier. An update for language based on region is needed. Still a great app. I can open and close my phone with the wave of a hand, and I get voice updates from movie characters of my choice.

Kar Fei Woo

already configured macro for auto play music when headset was plugged in, but it failed. else it will had 5 stars.

Barend Wasserman

So many functions to choose from From activating my Bluetooth when disconnecting from my home wifi and vice versa to deleting files if the password is typed incorrectly in a certain period. Still playing with more functions but overall I am very impressed! Keep up the good work guys!

Anthony Wagner

SmartActions Alternative Works as replacement for Droid SmartActions. Although couldn't get constraint time frame to work for silencing phone for specific time frame.

William Ballard

Excellent Job!!! Excellent job works better than AutomateIt or Actions!!!! Very stable for 4.0 and above.

Ayman Ayoub

Delightful ! This app is just so good it contains ideas and tools you may see them in 3 years from now in coming smartphones and even more than 3 years, I see people here making template if they ware translated into an independent app they will make tons of downloads and money, it's great ! I suggest you start separating the templates and shuffle them in the market's *** ! Good job thank you very much


GRRREAT APP! An issue. Something goes wrong... I deleted a macro, but that old actions starting... weird thing. Why?

Benjamin Grisold

Great app but drains battery I am really enjoying this app and all its possibilities however It seems to really drain my phones battery

Nickolas Galhardo

Can someone plz respond Can I add actions like tapping and things like that

Cam S

Badass, job. Good form sir or Ma'am ! Truly, you don't know what your phone can do until you use this app. People, you'll buy the free version and donate money, it's that good. Also, I almost never give 5 stars, you really have to earn it as this app has done.

Adam Haycroft

Once you install this you will wonder how you lived without it

Yibo X

Better interface than Tasker

Caleb Wright

Very good This has great stuff, but there need to be options as far as responding to the last text received or responding to the last call received instead of last call placed. As far as SMS Received triggers go, it would be nice to be able to distinguish what action to do based on which contact sent you the SMS or call.

Jordan McFarlane

Better than Tasker Failed login attempt trigger does not work, I have reinstalled and still it doesn't work, prior and post reinstall macro droid was a device admin but prior to the reinstall in the system logs it showed that pictures (the action I had for the trigger) were being taken but they did not show up anywhere

Andrew Dobin

Amazing Honestly I downloaded this thinking cool drippler liked it. I'll just test. But I'm hooked. This saves a lot of time in little ways you wouldn't have thought of. Right down to having aways messages for texts when you're asleep. Side note. Do not test this macro on yourself unless you enjoy loops. Have macroing!

Javed Patel

Error in app Hi, I have got applications installed in samsung galaxy note edge. I love your app very much.  Great invention by u guys..  Only one problem i m facing is thst i m activating macro in app, But after few minute app stops and macro not showing anything means not working... while i cal see icon on statusbar that time only it works. But after few rendom minutes icon from statusbar its disappeared.. so that macro not work..  When i go to that app it suddenly shows icon on statusbar.

Andy Chaey

Not sure why people have negative reviews. But this app is beyond awesome!!!!!! It is now part of the essential apps I use for every android device I own. So far on that list is Solid Explorer, Nova Launcher and MacroDroid!

Steve Henricksen

Private data. Hi, thanks for your response, site i will send you a email and in the mean time change the feedback here until i hear from you. Cheers. i am using CM Security which monitors inter app activities and logs access from one app to another and what the app is doing.

Nunya Bidness

Best app so far I've gotten more use out of this app than any other. Building macros is easy and sort of fun. I just wish it's on /off recognition & activation was better.

John Lewis

Searched for keyboard macros (to insert custom date-time stamp into fields, files, records, etc) don't see it here, hidden? What's here I'm testing, so far didn't kill background app.

Josef Handsuch

Excellent I have switched to MacroDroid from Trigger which I had used for years. This exceeds everything.

Roger Leyland

Very useful Have so far replaced 3 apps with this one! Screen on /off, brightness control, wifi on /off

Iam Exsheeple

This is great I love this app and the things that it can do. Unlocks the true potential and makes your phone even smarter. I strongly encourage you to buy paid version, you won't be disappointed!!!!!!

Akash Swamy

Best Automation Tool Ever This app lets u do virtually anything with your Android. Building macro is easy and fun. It just had what came to my mind every time I wanted to add something in my macro!! The only issue I faced is I created a simple macro to make a sound when power plug was connected with some added features, rest of them worked except the sound, except for that a great tool for day to day automation.

Brian Ruppel

Excellent Works perfectly, and developer responded to a question in under 24 hours. Well-known deserved 5 stars... Using this to turn on GPS and turn Wi-Fi off when I start WAZE.

Philip Murphy

Love it It gives me freedom to get my phone to do stuff without having to remember to do it or buy loads of different "one trick pony" apps. It's great.

Ron Czapala

Very powerful and flexible tool for automating tasks. Highly recommend!

Bryan Reed

Great application I've used tasker before and it's hard to learn to use and doesn't always work. This app is easy to set up and works flawlessly.

Patrick Oliver Bustamante

A Must Have App for those who have rooted phones

sicunder kahn

Average Cons :Not deep enough, but may be that's a good thing, some people can mess up their machine with faulty logic. Pros: very clear very simple, easiest to use.

Hoshi Inoue

When it comes to up if statements, this app definitely falls short. Plus tasker let's you check if a profile is active or not. Macro droid could give you the same effect with toggling variables but... That's a lot of work.

Stephen Ross

I cant tell you how much I love this app. If I could marry it I would. We'd go off and sail the world together. Truthfully though, I like it because I feel like a programmer now. Thanks to the developer. I tried tasker, and the way it's set up and the terms it uses have no correlation to anything I want to do. Scene? Really, I have no idea why I would want to create a scene in tasker. Goodbye Tasker, hello MacroDroid.

Jack Skweres

Really good! Fun to tweak your device and such.

Tony Click

Fantastic app! I'm just beginning to play around with this little gem after I discovered it recently. Powerful and easy to use. I donated because I like it so much.

Abel Thompson

Works Excellent Low battery consumption. Can create an almost unlimited number of macros given how many delivered variables there are. Well done!

Chris Cutting

Beautiful and easy to use Good design with nice unobtrusive hints. Perhaps the best app I've paid for. Once you unlock you can do so much with it

Harvey Livschitz

Huawei, great Great I love it,I can automate most of the repeat stuff, works well on my p8

Devin Ersoy

Amazing Super easy to use and works perfectly. What more can one ask for?

Kedar Kulkarni

Great app So useful and intuitive.

Nuchit Pruektanakul

This app is very useful. Work flawlessly.

Mike Jankowski

Awesome What a fun App.

A Google User

Easy and powerful automation tool! This is a very powerful automation tool. It's a lot easier to use than Tasker, without any real loss of power.

It just needs some way to return to an earlier state (or the previous one, at least) when the current conditions no longer apply.

Greg Gresik

Best Automator Best combination of features plus ease of far.

John Hall

Good app... However I'm having serious issues trying to get location triggers to work via cell towers. Have tried redoing several times but still no luck. Tried setting location areas and still nothing. Going back to Tasker for a while until possible bugs have been fixed. Nexus 5 on 6.0.1 FYI.

Sean Sickler

Great balance between ease of use and raw automation power DTEK (by BlackBerry) has reported over 200 permission accesses to my contacts in the 12 hours I've had the app. This is at worst a privacy concern (unlikely, but possible), and at best, a battery concern. For reference, I usually disable/uninstall apps with ~50 accesses/day, and have disabled Macrodroid as a test. It has continued to access contacts while disabled, and I don't even have any contacts related macros. This wouldn't be a problem if I had Marshmallow's itemized permissions, but alas.

SeiRruf MalaWolSki

Amazing. Easy. Fun! There are many automation apps now. But this one is one of the cleanest, nicer looking, and easier ones to manage. It works and works well. Not to mention the developer seems to be an awesome guy!

J. Monighan

Silly Me Took a lil' while for silly 'Ol me to get the hang of setting up, but now that I have done it, making me wondering what I was using before. Great app. Many convenient and helpful uses. Thx.

Alina Bassina

Can't get it to work I set up a location-based trigger that is supposed to lower the notification and ringtone volumes when I enter that location and then raise the volumes all the way up when I leave that location. The action did not kick off. I tried increasing the radius and checked what Google maps thought my location was and it fell within the radius.

Sean Piercy

One of the most useful apps on my smartphone. Great apps like this are why I stick with Android. I love the frequent updates and the new UI face-lift too. I spent like 12 hours configuring dozens of macros when I upgraded to the pro version and now I can go months at a time without even having to open it. Developer also responds to issues immediately. A+ support!

Mike Mikson

App was great until.. My script for sending the photo to my email if 2 times someone fails to login to my device failed to work.

Peter Piper

Simple Have used other similar types of apps. This one is comprehensive and by far simpler than others I have used.

Krombopulos Michael

Fantastic App Very good app. Bought premium after toying around with it for about 5 minutes. Incredibly straight forward and easy to understand interface that allows for complex tasking.

Benjamin Campbell

All is good on this app. Just needs time to build. A good template database. Using the template part when I scroll in the latest section the list shows some templates more then once like duplicates. Can we filter out the spanish ones.

Brandyn Nickelson

Very useful and helpful There are almost limitless possibilities to make using your phone easier and this app covers them all, you can configure and make anything you want to make your phone work well and there is a section of macros other people made and shared that work well and are very helpful, unless you get the full version though, you can only have 5 macros at a time and have ads but that isn't much of an issue, I highly recommend this app to anyone and everyone

Javanesse Zenfone2

No wear icon on android 6.01 version Recently i was upgrade my android wear and the phone to marshmallow. I didnt see the macrodroid app on my wear anymore. fix it fast please

Manjunath Subbarao

Great app! This app is excellent. But, it stops responding when an app running in the background is brought to the foreground though that app has been configured to trigger an action when on.

visnu blu

The best of the kind I even bought it

Leo Solo T

Excellent App fast and easy to configure

Adam Kozak

Great app. Easy to use

Larue Yates

Love this app love telling people about it

Ibrahim Chhaya

No limits I use it to kill my notifications before school and have them back on after. All automatically.

Android Rant

Perfection I've rated this app on different accounts before lol, this really should be a built-in app.

Jackson Skillet

Best app ever.. Can you add block popup AppLock..? Like popup message..For example - the trigger is application launch and action is block popup when I open the app then block popup appear block popup only disappear when I enter the password .

Joziph Tadrous

Excellent job Please, add a constrain to find if a Bluetooth device is within range or not. Like Car Bluetooth

Patrick Oliver Bustamante

Wow!!! This app is Getting Good after some recent Updates.. ??? Thanks for bringing those recent updates because those updates brings more flexibility to this app.. I hope you implement auto uploading options to Google Drive and A Must Have App for those who have rooted phones

Vikram Srinivasan

Dear ArloSoft How do u rate against tasker? Do u plan to provide "Phone off" hook to show ongoing call status like tasker does? Oncall trigger seldom works. We need outgoing, incoming triggers to do same job against any number.

Lakshmi Narayana Chowdary

Doesn't work at all on one plus one Lot of options.. Nothing will work

zaney K

Best automated app. It's so easy and powerful, and a lot less confusing than tasker.

Gabriel Jones

Far exceeds Tasker I found Macro Droid easy to use. Within minutes I was purchasing the pro version to get more macros. It replaced a bunch of my IFTT recipes. Tasker was overwhelming and complicated to me, this is not.


Very easy to work with I just started using this app and it is very easy to work with. I recommend this app to anyone who wants automation on their Mobile Device. ?

Henry Iyke

AWESOME!!! This is the best utility App of all time; completely automates your device...


Totally Awesome One of the must have app for Android

Bk Vaibhav Sachdeva

Add trigger for Battery Temperature and for Battery Full instead of 100% battery, as m battery charge even on 100%...

Zachery Sachs

My favourite app Tasker but easier to use

Darik Horn

Battery saving scripts.

Pedro Scharth

Khal App: Epic Win!!! It is a free JUST-SHUT-UP-AND-TAKE-MY-MONEY-App!!! I could even make a macro for handling my MacroDroid fatal addiction! And guess what, it worked splendid! I mean, it doesn't! Now I've broken that slavery chains that this Smartphonzoic's Era put on us all, and I can say that finally I am my phone's master, not the opposed. Seriously. Buying it now for the sake of world peace and all humankind infinite happiness that ten thousand macros are going to allow me to!

Courtnee G

Flexible, powerful, and easy to use This app is a perfect mix of flexibility and options, but is still easy to learn and use. It's exactly what I was looking for... Something very robust like Tasker, but much easier to use.

Sean Piercy

Hands down one of the most useful, innovative, and polished apps on my phone. Deserves every 5 star review it gets. The only feature I wish it included that it doesn't is night mode with a black background. The bright white background is just too hard on the eyes at night & drains battery. It's a shame because the juice I have saved by automating my screen brightness and WiFi/GPS/Data connectivity has been significant, not to mention the hassle saved from not having to manually toggle them. It's still definitely worth the five star rating though considering how awesome it is.

Tom Capote

Can I just say WOW. Wow and WOW! I have been a long time Tasker user, but after finding this, I have switched and paid for it. Super easy to use, great UI, I would highly recommend. Constant updates, well done!

Corey Iles

This app is just absolutely awesome! I don't really know how to describe how much I love the power of this. I don't normally write reviews on apps I like, but for this I needed to. I've practically just programmed actions using this app, sort of in an AHK type of way. Combined with apps like Tasker or even apps that I've developed myself MacroDroid is just top of the line!

jamez adriano

almost perfect ? please include the option for galaxy phones power saving and ultra power saving mode. tnx. and when can u put the new macro updated icon? in playstore its new icon but in phone old icon. and please optimize it so it wil consume less ram but i love this app. keep the updates coming ?

Benjamin McIntosh

Very, very useful One complaint and one only; had to reinstall to get it to stop testing a macro. Other than that, a great resource and very useful!

Tomer Tsadok

Recommended! At last, after trying quite few automation apps, I'm happy with this one. Easy and even fun to use.

Amr Abdallah

Masterpiece You sir are doing a great job. Keep the stellar updates coming ... wooohoooooo

Daniel Kwok

Latest updates have made this into a gem of an automation app. Keep up the great work!

karin fresnel

Stopped working All macros stopped working with later update. Unable to get then top work even after deleting and reinstalling app

Brent Fletcher

Undeclared limitations Free is OK, but trials and limited offers should be declared. 5 task limit unless upgrade purchased

Erik Seng

No option to stimulate looping. Limited to triggers only despite calling it macro.

Wilfredo Miranda

This app is incredible! So incredible that this one app replaced up to 5 of my installed apps. Talking Clock, Voice Alerts, PhoneLeash, Flashlight, Voice Recorder; just to name a few. This thing can even reboot my phone into recovery mode at a spasific time and day so i can remember to periodically do a Nandroid backup. Oh my God, a 5-star rating isn't good enough for this app. After 1 macro and I already purchased full version. Well worth it. I would give this app 20 stars if I could.

Danny Varbanov

Think I've found a bug? "Wait before next action" doesn't work as expected, if you have more than one "wait before next action", they all start at the same time(playing sound to test this,all sounds are played almost at the same time and not one after another), also when in while/repeat loop, "Wait before next action" doesn't reset if action is canceled, I think workaround is to disable whole macro to reset counter. Is it me or there is a bug? Trying to help I'll edit my review, great app overall! PS: disabling macro doesn't reset

Daniel Mitchinson

Automating magisk I use this app to toggle root in magisk automatically when I open pokemon go. Disclaimer, never cheated in pokemon, but update 0.37 stopped me from playing on rooted phone. That you can answer surveys in app for increased macro limit is a major plus. Can make widgets for the macros as well.

Rick McKenney

The best app This is best app. It works great even on a hacked S3 running the current PAC MAN ROM

Franklin Ma

For some reason, macros that have a launch app trigger are not being activated when I launch my apps. Nougat Nexus 6P

Bob Tan

Enjoying this app so far.. However I have ran into an issue. I use thumbprint for my lockscreen, but whenever I use the action "screen off", my phone (s6 edge) forces me to type in my password instead of thumbprint for security reasons.. Any help would be appreciated. Seems like it happened only after a recent phone update.

Dru Connold

Excellent app and excellent support Ive used this app for a while now and I'm not sure I could go about my day without the convenience it gives me. So when it stopped working today it threw me off, but it only took one email and I got immediate support walking me through everything until it was up and running again. Thanks guys! Well done. I love the app.

Shawn Konichek

Easy to use and very functional I've tried a lot of other task-making apps like this one, but this has been the only one I've stuck with. It makes setting up macros very intuitive, and so far I've never had one fail. It allows for a very large variety of tasks, as well. I've been very happy with this app!

Luigi Notaro

Great concept and nice interface but not too reliable I wrote a few very useful macros, but every now and then they just explode with no apparent reason: loops and if blocks loose one one the pieces and what remains is impossible to remove, plus this destroy all the logic they hold. It could be a 4 stars app without this messy behavior.

Graham Golightly

Macrodroid has so much potential Use it all the time and even bought the pro version even though I normally only use 4 macros. Glad they fixed a recent bug, one thing I'll say they'll always update and got a team that's always looking for new things to be able to update

Sherman Leung

Easy to use I like this app very much. It is very easy to use and easy to understand. However it would be nice if you could make the widget buttons scalable. I think right now the buttons are too big

Abu Bakar bin Ghazali

After latest update 3.15.# (*Update) Fails to read/recognise Notification Received trigger, which makes most of my macros useless, hence the app useless. *Update ... Uninstalled Macrodroid System Helper 1.2 and problem solved. Where did that helper file come from as I never installed it and its not in PlayStore.

Clayton Goodridge

My macro app of choice Easy to understand interface while maintaining a strong set of options and control. Continuing development makes it an easy choice to go pro.

Prasad Tumari

Finger tip sensor won't work When I use macro to lock screen, next time when I try to unlock finger tip sensor won't work.. I need to type passcode

joel abram

Note4 Tried and paid for other similar apps, this was the easiest to use and setup and has many options to control and customized your Android, I love it.

Muhammad Kamil

Love it but. I love the all feature of this but can we have 10 marcos more please please i dont have credit card please. then I will give u 5 star please

John G

Does everything you could ever want... It can do so much. Developer provides excellent support, and the online community has so many tips. Really just amazing.

Mike Garner

This app has transformed my phone This program is superb. Highly recommended!

Tess Bond

Awesome app! Completely replaced another very complex automation app for me with no loss in functionality.

Gaetano C.J. Iacono

Using it for years over 3 different phones. Just keeps getting more useful.

Hari Om

Amazing app Best app I have ever used. This app can surpass google in this

Jill Vaishnav

Awesome app Very good for additional features for a mobile phone

Paul H

I tried them all... This one is the best!

Arpad Orfi

I’ve tried 6 apps in this category. If you rely on the notion of profiles, Llama is your best bet. For automatic profile change functionality, the 2nd place goes to #1 Profile: it’s easy to use. MacroDroid is good for general use, it’s beautifully implemented, easy to use, yet very powerful. However, in terms of profiles, it lacks the ease-of-use of Llama or #1 Profile. Automate and Automagic * Automation: both very powerful, but Automate is not so well implemented and lacks some features, so I really didn’t like it. Automagic is the best option for someone who wants the utmost capabilities, but at the same time doesn’t mind a cumbersome handling. E-Robot lags behind in every aspect and has a very outdated and terrible UI.

Cory Harbak

Flawless app - love it! Automating functions on an Android with this app is super easy, and the interface honestly makes it really fun! I've already made macros that open my music app and increases the volume when an auxiliary cord is plugged in, re-enables my mobile data connection if I've had to disable it to prevent overages during my billing cycle, and even one that sends my location to my fiancée if I dial emergency services or send alarming messages to her about danger. Highly recommend this app!

Alicia Etler

Awesome app Enabling location for specific apps & then disabling it when I exit the app to save battery (and prevent my buggy ROM from bootlooping due to an issue with location being active on boot for some reason) is the main use I have for it, but there's so many options, it can do far more.

Soki G

Best app ive ever owned For those of you that have location trigger problems. Like if a sms doesnt send when you breach an areas radius. Settings, trigger options, location trigger, set update to 1 min or so.

Scott Bolin

Crashes Works until I reboot. Then can't even start manually.

Tom Mitchell

Fantastic before last update After the last update it completely refuses to run on my s6, it's a fantastic app otherwise, will edit after a fix has been made

Frank 'Dax' Kuilboer

Great app Love this app and especially the ready made macros. I use the macro that brightens my screen when I open the camera app and dulls it when 8 close the camera app. Makes taking photos in bright sunshine just that bit easier to see


Great Please add an option to show battery percentage on the notification of the app

Tri Effendi SS

It works and reliable! Please check your email, I have sent 1 bug related to the missing IF part after exporting macro. Thanks!

Brad Olson

Works where others failed Easy to program, easy to understand. And it works!

dave Yates

Sweet automation app Thanks bro .....keep up the good work

Michael Menza

Easy to use Fifth star when they add sunrise and sunset to the conditions.

Arnav Kunwar

Best app Easy to use app and what a great automatic functions it can do

charles kevin

Please stop loading change log after every update At least give an option to whether or not load the change log, so that I can dismiss it. It's a HUGE file and takes FOREVER to load. The memory gets filled and the device become not responsive. Nobody cares about the old versions. So maybe show what's new for the last 2-3 versions? Yes -2 stars for that coz it's annoying.

Summer Salt

One happy little vegemite Macrodroid has turned me from a "late 20's who thought they understood technology but then realised that the kids a couple of years younger than us are actually light years ahead of us and we're not even like, 40 yet" into a fully-fledged, automatic automator. It's so easy to use that I barely even think while creating a macro, but the effects they have on my life are just awesome. So many uses. So many minutes, so many many frustrated minutes, have been saved by Macrodroid and the community of users too!
