8 Best Smartphone Automation Apps for Android

Automation apps allow you to automate various tasks and activities on your Android device. They usually have a floating control panel through which you start, pause, and end sessions. Such applications can not only perform the autoclick function, but can also be programmed to perform almost any task on a smartphone.

By adding the necessary triggers, tasks and macros to the application, you can automate not only actions, for example, in games, but also any other action within the functionality of the phone, and without the need to obtain root rights. All of the apps listed will work on any Android device regardless of manufacturer, be it Samsung, Google, Huawei or Xiaomi.

MacroDroid

MacroDroid uses macros to automate a wide range of everyday tasks. With over a hundred pre-built commands, MacroDroid maximizes the potential of your smartphone and minimizes the effort on your part. Reducing energy consumption, turning off WiFi when leaving the house, creating custom sound themes are just a few of the tasks that MacroDroid can solve.

To create a macro, click the "New Request" button, select a trigger (the condition under which the macro will run), for example, connecting headphones and select the desired action - for example, start Spotify. Ready! For advanced users, additional scripts, plugins and user variables are available for editing. The application is available both in free (limit up to 5 macros) and in Pro-version with unlimited functionality.

Tapping

If you play games where you need to tap the screen quickly and a lot, then the Tapping automatic clicker is definitely your choice! Set the size of the floating area to be clicked and press the button Start. After that, you can adjust the intervals between taps, the duration of each tap, and set the total duration of the session. The Tapping app is free and supports Android 7.0 and up. For a small fee, you get a Pro version with a few more features.

QuickTouch

QuickTouch provides fast and accurate auto-click. Like Tapping, QuickTouch has a floating control bar that turns clicks on/off. If necessary, the panel can be easily moved. It is convenient to use even in the most dynamic games that require constant fast clicks.

You can also adjust the delay, duration and set the duration of the session. QuickTouch supports devices with Android 7.0 and above, it is completely free, and for a small amount you can purchase an ad-free version.

Automagic

Automagic is capable of many functions, including changing geolocation, auto-replying messages, creating weekly backups, working with URL links, blocking the device and much more other. There are 60 triggers, 50 conditions and more than 100 actions available for customization - you can combine all this with each other. For example, turn on "Airplane Mode" after a specified time, display a notification if it's raining, or log every screen unlock - whatever you can think of.

The application uses blocks to build an automated process and contains triggers, actions, and conditions. Each block can have an unlimited set of components, it can always be displayed as a block diagram. The premium version can be used for free for 10 days.

Automate

Automate is in many ways similar to Automagic - both use flowcharts for automation, which are very easy to edit - study the diagram, add/remove blocks. There are over 210 blocks to build, including actions, conditions, event triggers, loops, and more.

The application has ready-made, editable blocks that work with reminders, account synchronization, notifications, Bluetooth, contacts, calendar, camera, mail and many other functions. I liked that there is a separate tab with popular schemes from other users.

The application is free and supports devices with Android 4.0 and above. The premium version allows you to use an unlimited number of blocks.

Droid Automation

Droid Automation will make your daily phone use much easier. It has a simple and understandable interface, it can be easily understood even by a user who is far from macros.

Create profiles, choose the triggers and actions you want to automate. The application already has a ready-made set of commands (for working with the network, sound, display) and several triggers (Wi-Fi / Bluetooth status, batteries, headsets). The application is free and works on devices from Android 4.0 and above.

E-Robot

E-Robot already comes with 170 events and 150 actions, each of which can be edited. The app can trigger events based on location, time, data from other apps, etc.

E-Robot supports devices running Android 4.0 and above, is compatible with JavaScript, and comes with a set of additional third-party tools. The free version provides full functionality, but you will have to put up with ads - and if this is not for you, then you can buy a Pro-key or make a donation to the developers.

AnkuLua

AnkuLua is based on scripts that automate the actions you specify in games. You don't need to know how to program or be a computer geek - just write down your actions and, if necessary, set additional conditions.

AnkuLua has its own forum community where you can find scripts and ideas from other users, as well as get support from the developer. The application is free and supports devices with Android 4.0 and above. There is a paid version with richer functionality.
