Android Automation App – Llama

Android Automation App – Llama

For Android users there is a great app that can help automate your location-based settings called Llama. Many of you might be using Tasker or other similar apps, but Llama definitely stands out from the crowd in my opinion. First off, what can Llama do? Well if you are constantly changing your phone’s settings (such as volume, bluetooth, Wi-Fi ) when you are at certain locations, then this prize music app is for you and it will save you some battery time.

Llama can also be used to change the settings at specific times of the day (bedtime), when the battery’s at a certain level, whether it’s charging, playing music or many more options. Personally, I have a few locations set up including home and work. So when I am home the app will increase the ring volume, turn off bluetooth, turn on Wi-Fi and connect to my home Wi-Fi and a few other settings. And when I get to work, the app will lower the volume, turn on Wi-Fi and connect to my work Wi-Fi. Now many of you might not be impressed as there are other apps that can achieve this, well at the time I wrote this post none of them used the Cell tower you are connected to to determine your location. Similar apps I tried required GPS to be on, which drains the battery, while Llama uses the Cell tower you are already connected to to determine where you are!

Search the Market for Llama and I hope this app is as useful for you as it is for me.
