Droid Automation by XDA member wakdev is an app that allows you to perform and automate repetitive actions and tasks on your Android device.

It is very easy to use - create profiles, add tasks and select your triggers. That is all there is to it.

Well, not quite. There is a huge number of automation options available in this app but some of the options are only available with a rooted device and others require the PRO version. But there are still plenty to play around with before deciding whether to upgrade to the PRO version.

Once installed and a profile is created there are two options where you will be making the choices of what you want automate - Tasks & Triggers.

Choose a Trigger:

Choose a Task:

The triggers are self explanatory. When your Android device enters any of the given states this will trigger a task that you have selected.

You can choose from a comprehensive list of tasks, but as previously mentioned you may need to be on a rooted device or have the PRO version for some to work. But the tasks available to non-rooted and non-PRO devices will still mean you have a lot of options available.

Here is a list tasks that are available to devices that aren't rooted and don't have the PRO:

  • Networks
    • Enable/Disable Wifi
    • Enable/Disable Bluetooth
    • Enable/Disable Mobile Data
    • Connect to a Bluetooth Device
    • Enable/Disable Wifi Hotspot
  • Sound & Media
    • Set Volume (media, ringtone, notifications etc.)
  • Display
    • Toggle Brightness Mode
    • Set Brightness
    • Set Display Sleep Timeout
    • Auto-Rotate
    • Enable/Disable Notification Light
  • Configuration
    • Change Sound Profile
    • Set Alarm
    • Enable/Disable Car Mode
    • Set Timer
    • Select input Method
  • Other
    • Launch Application
    • Launch URL
    • Run Tools
    • Dial Number
    • Make a Phone Call
    • Compose SMS
    • Send SMS
    • Compose Email
    • Open Geolocation
    • Open Address
    • Run Tasker
    • Text to Speech
    • Event Pop-up
    • Expand Notification Bar
    • Uninstall Apps

As you can see for a free version on a non-rooted device you have plenty to play around with and the app is definitely worth playing around with. The interface and setup is a lot easier to use than Tasker - I know it can't do as much as Tasker but these are the sort of tasks a novice Tasker user might try to setup (it was when I first started with Tasker).

The PRO app, which I am a bit unsure as to how to upgrade to - I think it is in the 'about' section under 'Buy me a coffee' offers a whole host of other features but I will leave those for you to discover yourself.
