Automation

Automate stuff on your device by creating rules.
New in version 1.7.7
* New action: Keep phone turned on
* New: Regular expressions enabled where comparisons apply (one has to use "equals")
* New: Notification closing can now also be achieved by clicking a button of the target notification.
* New: French translation (thanks to Thama)
* New: Wifi trigger can now use Regex for SSID
* Fixed: Changed input type for decimal numbers when adding intent data
* Fixed: Battery level trigger not working when using direction falling-below
* Fixed: Battery receiver would trigg
Create rules that are made of triggers and actions. A prominent example would be something like "Mute phone at work".

Here's a list of supported triggers and actions:

Supported triggers:
* Location
* Day/Time
* Charging state
* Battery level
* USB connection to computer established
* Your current speed
* Background noise (only until Android 7)
* Wifi connection
* Other applications running
* Airplane mode
* Roaming status
* NFC tags
* Bluetooth connection
* Headset connected
* Phone call running
* Notifications of other apps
* Device orientation (gyroscope)
* Profile active or not
* Broadcasts of other apps

Supported actions:
* Change wifi state
* Change bluetooth state
* Toggle USB tethering
* Toggle wifi tethering
* Toggle Bluetooth tethering
* Toggle automatic screen rotation
* Make an HTTP request
* Change ringtone/sound setting
* Start another application
* Wait (in between other actions)
* Turn screen on or off
* Toggle airplane mode
* Toggle mobile data connection
* Speak text
* Open music player
* Change screen brightness
* Send text message
* Play sound file
* Create notifications

It's quite hard to keep this app working across the many different hardwares as well as the many changes Android undergoes over the versions. I can test it in the emulator, but that cannot show all bugs.
So if a certain feature is not working on your device - let me know. Over the years I have fixed almost all bugs that have been reasonably reported to me. But for that I'm dependend on your input.

If you have a problem and think about contacting me please
- update to the latest version first and see if your problem persists there, too.
- check this list of known problems first: https://server47.de/automation/index.php#knownProblems

Donations are certainly a good, but not the only way to motivate me :-)
* If you'd like to support me, you can also leave a positive review for the app on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jens.automation2).
* If you like the app, simply some warm words via email are always appreciated.
* Furthermore I can always use help in translating the app. English, German and some Spanish are among my own skills. Italiano e russo sono già coperti. But everything else is more than welcome.
* If you have a talent/experience in graphics design and have some ideas for nicer icons let me know.
* If you have an interesting use-case or found a way to combine triggers and actions to achieve something intriguing and you think it's worth putting it on the examples page (https://server47.de/automation/examples.html), let me know.
