    Tasker is a paid app for Android devices that works as a fully customizable automation tool for all kind of tasks as sending SMS, checking mails, setting alerts, launching apps and all about that kind of stuff.

    "This app can be a little complex and difficult to get the hang of at first, but once you start playing around with it and learning all the features it has at its disposal you'll quickly realize it's a game changer. It's a great way to automate your smartphone and make certain features easier to use. Again, I have to stress there's a bit of a steep learning curve as you'll essentially be automating your phone, but the interface makes that easy and even fun to do."

    IFTTT stands for If This Then That. It's a tool that actually lets you build your very own automated actions called "recipes," so that you don't have to do them yourself every time.

    "This is such a cool idea, and I've been trying to make it work. I really really want to like it. It was awesome at first, when I was just starting out with it. I started by adding routines for my smart thermostat and for setting my phone to vibrate as soon as I got to work. Great! But then I started adding more and more routines for other actions. Now, I can't tell what's what anymore. There's no way for me to add a title? Really? I'm still using it because I keep hoping it'll get updated though. Because other than that it is a solid little app."

    Automate allows you create automations with flowcharts on your Android device. You can add, edit or remove actions like audio volume, Bluetooth, GPS and WiFi, among other options.
