Automation Made Easy for Your Android Device

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

  • 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

From "MacroDroid is an utterly brilliant, and less expensive, alternative (to Tasker) that is definitely worth trying out" (4.6/5)

Requires Android 2.3 and above.


If you've ever tried other automation apps you may have found them difficult to understand and hard to configure. MacroDroid aims to change this by focussing on an intuitive UI without sacrificing on features.

A few examples of what MacroDroid can automate:

  • Shake the device to upload the last photo to Facebook
  • Turn on/off Wifi when you launch/close a particular app
  • Respond to an incoming SMS by sending your current location
  • Toggle the power button to speak the time (e.g. in your pocket)
  • Use NFC to configure the device (turn on bluetooth, set volume)
