Automate 1 Apps Explored

Today we are going to discuss about a wonderful app named ‘Automate’ developed by LlamaLab. I really love this app! As the name suggests, this app helps you to “Automate almost everything on your Android smartphone or tablet!”. It is free but in-app purchases are available. Its current version is 1.10.0 with 10,00,000+ downloads with current rating 4.5/5 with 13,660 ratings in Google Playstore. The app was last updated on 12th December, 2017 and it requires 4.0 or higher.

So, how it works?

The process is logical yet simple and involves creating flow charts using some predefined blocks or modules. You need to edit flowcharts, connect and add blocks to create your required automated task. This app requires accessibility permissions of your device so make sure to allow it. There are also various tutorials on YouTube about building various flowcharts of automation. Make sure to watch some of them and you will get pretty much idea about it. The app also comes with some predefined flowcharts. There is also a community of users to help you.
