The Pro version is definitely worth it. Some of the most powerful features only work on rooted devices but it is pretty amazing even on unrooted phones & tablets.

Here are lists of triggers, actions and constraints:

Select from over 40 different Triggers to activate a Macro
Add one or more Actions (from a choice of over 70)
Configure optional Constraints to limit when a Macro can activate

You can get support and share macros on the forum: http://www.macrodroid.freeforums.org/

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.

  • Ever thought of making an app like automation using macrodroid? Here's a an automation using a combination of 2 macros which is the most complicated one that you might have ever seen: :)
  • Some are using this together with the RFO BASIC interpreter (aka: BASIC! with the exclamation). A very powerful combo :+1:

    Sooo easy to throw something together to talk Bluetooth or WiFi.
