Default Automate Tasks

Hey Everybody,
Basically I want my phone to connect to the WiFi when in certain locations (eg. Home, friends house), and disable WiFi when out and about. Same goes for when I'm not at home for mobile data. I want it to enable mobile data when I'm out and disable WiFi when I'm out. I've tried a few apps, like tasker, but it was too advanced for me. Also I've tried condi, but it didn't work too well. Any alternatives you guys have? Thanks in advance. <3

Trigger is a good app. You might have to pay for the full version to get location based stuff though but it was worth it for me. There is also Llama location profiles that I havent used in a long time but it worked good when I had it.

Tasker, Baby! It was too hard in the beginning for me too, but I stuck it out, and now, couldn't live without it.

I can second that it's hard in the beginning but after a while it gets better and there's so much you can do with it!

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

Alright, I'll man up and try it!

Any of you guys got a link to a beginner tut or something like that? That would be helpful, thanks!
