App Spotlight: Automate
Updated: Mar 24, 2019
The automate app is a free android app that you can use to automate (shocker, I know) tasks on your phone. It's similar to Tasker, however it's more user friendly and a little bit less extensive.
"Well, this is cool and all, but what kind of things can I do with this?", You might be asking. I've made these little programs (Flows, as they're called) that have made my life a little bit easier.
I've made a program that automatically turns off all notifications when I get to school so I don't need to worry about doing it myself. I've made a program that automatically texts people back when they text me while i'm at school when I have my phone screen off.
I'll likely go over my flows later on in another blog post, but I just want to make people more aware of this app. I'm not getting anything out of making a post about it, I just really love this app.
If you don't feel like making your own flows you can download community made ones (Although i'd be careful of what those flows are, it IS possible to download malicious flows) and download flows your friends make.
I honestly highly recommend this app if you like automating things on your phone and if you just want something to play with.
