AutomateIt is a simple automation tool for your Android device.

The application lets you define a set of your desired behaviors in response to events on your Android device. Each behavior/rule is defined as a pair of Trigger-Action that can be selected from a large set including SMS, bluetooth, wifi, location, headset, applications, battery and more triggers/actions.

Checkout the following link for a complete user guide, list of available triggers and actions that can be used and some tips on how to use this app to get the most out of your Android device.

I really like the idea of this, being so heavily configurable, but it doesn't do the 1 thing that I want. I want to turn off screen lock when connected to my home wifi. There's already a dedicated app for that, so it looks like I'll have to stick with that for now.

If you do update this to include that action, then I'll be all over it! Cheers for the hard work.

Can you make that i can select multiple triggers, if one, or more because true (or all true), then execute it.
Also to have more actions per rule would be nice =D

I have another post on my blog that you can vote for some features that were already requested by other users. Enable/Disable screen lock is one of those features and I believe it will be included in one of the next updates.

I'm afraid that's only possible using the Pro version.

Nope. Since AutomateIt has a service running it cannot run from the SD card (at least that's what google is recommending)
If you have some workaround you can suggest I'd love to hear it...

I tried automateit and it was not reliable in the one function I needed most which was "enable bluetooth when plugged into power" and "disable bluetooth when power disabled"....I'd find bluetooth left on or find it off when it should be on....finally went back to the dedicated app.

I also recall it not doing other functions such as "run app x when power enabled" "close app x when power disabled"....alternatives would be checking for home wifi ssid or any method of it knowing I'm "home". (I run wired tether as soon as the phone is plugged in to tie the phone to the local lan )

famewolf, I don't know which version you have tried but a lot of things has changed in AutomateIt in the last few months and the rules that you described are exactly the ones I have defined for myself and they work flawlessly (a list of all my rules and other ideas is available here).
I also didn't get any report about these functions from any of the users who downloaded the app (>25,000 users...)

I'd appreciate it if you give it another chance and report any errors to me so I can resolve them (just press "Help !" on the About screen if you encounter any error).

I'm willing to give it another go but I think my usage might also be a factor...if I toggle airplane mode on/off to get the radio to go to 3g vs E then the app has to handle resyncing the bluetooth which also got turned off and back on for example. My home phone have bluetooth links so when I dock the phone it links to them etc...

Does it support importing and exporting of rules yet? I can see where a webpage where you could checklist the rules you wanted and it builds you a customized ruleset being very nice.
