Automation apps let you automate various tasks and activities on your Android device. They usually have a floating control panel through which you start, pause, and end sessions. Such applications can perform the function of an auto click and be programmed to perform almost any task on a smartphone.
By adding the necessary triggers, tasks, and macros to the application, you can automate not only actions, for example, in games, but also any other action within the functionality of the phone, and without the need to obtain root rights. These apps will work on any Android device regardless of the manufacturer, be it Samsung, Google, Huawei, or Xiaomi.

MacroDroid uses macros to automate a wide variety of daily tasks. With over a hundred ready-made commands, MacroDroid maximizes your smartphone’s potential and minimizes your efforts. Reducing energy consumption, turning off WiFi when leaving home, creating custom sound themes are just a few of the tasks that MacroDroid can solve.
To create a macro, click the “New Request” button, select a trigger (the condition under which the macro will run), for example, plugging in headphones and select the desired action – for example, launch Spotify. Done! For advanced users, additional scripts, plugins, and user variables are available for editing. The application is available both for free (limit up to 5 macros) and in the Pro version with unlimited functionality.
If you play games where you need to tap quickly and a lot on the screen, then Auto Clicker Tapping is definitely your choice! Set the size of the floating area to click and click Start. After that, you can adjust the intervals between clicks, the duration of each press and set the total duration of the session.
Tapping is free and supports Android 7.0 and above. For a small fee, you get the Pro version with slightly more advanced functionality.
QuickTouch provides fast and accurate auto-clicking. Like Tapping, QuickTouch has a floating control panel that enables/disables clicks. The panel can be easily moved if necessary. It is convenient to use even in the most dynamic games that require constant fast clicks.
You can also adjust the delay, duration, and set the length of the session. QuickTouch supports devices running Android 7.0 and higher, it is completely free, and for a small price, you can purchase an ad-free version.
Automagic is capable of many functions, including geolocation changes, auto-reply to messages, weekly backups, working with URL links, blocking the device, and more. There are 60 triggers, 50 conditions and more than 100 actions available for customization – you can combine all this with each other. For example, turn on “Airplane mode” after a specified time, display a notification if it rains, or write to a log file every screen unlock – whatever you can think of.
The application uses blocks to build an automatic process and contains triggers, actions, and conditions. Each block can have an unlimited set of components, it can always be displayed in the form of a block diagram. The premium version can be used for free for 10 days.
Automate is in many ways similar to Automagic – for automation, both use flowcharts, which are very easy to edit – you study the diagram, add/remove blocks. There are over 210 building blocks available, including actions, conditions, event triggers, loops, and more.
The application has a ready-made, open for editing blocks that work with reminders, account synchronization, notifications, Bluetooth, contacts, calendar, camera, mail and many other functions. I liked that there is a separate tab with popular schemes from other users.
The app is free and supports devices with Android 4.0 and higher. The premium version allows you to use an unlimited number of blocks.
Droid Automation will make your day-to-day use of your phone much easier. It has a simple and intuitive interface, even a user far from macros can easily understand it.
Create profiles, choose triggers and actions that you want to automate. The application already has a ready-made set of commands (for working with the network, sound, display) and several triggers (state of Wi-Fi / Bluetooth, battery, headset). The application is free and works on devices from Android 4.0 and higher.
E-Robot already comes with 170 events and 150 actions, each of which can be edited. The application can launch events based on location, time, data from other applications, etc.
AnkuLua works on the basis of scripts that automate the actions you specify in games. You don’t need to know how to program or be a computer geek – just write down your actions and, if necessary, set additional conditions.
AnkuLua has its own community forum where you can find scripts and ideas from other users, as well as get support from the developer. The app is free and supports devices with Android 4.0 and higher. There is a paid version with richer functionality.
