Set Phone Profiles based on Location & Automate Tasks & Settings on Android

The smartphones have become smart but I ask you again, have they reached a point of complete freedom to you? I would say no, they are just smart enough to handle email, take photos and few editing. But these phones are not smart enough to automatically turn off your GPS or Wi-Fi signal when you are not using them or doesn’t have a proper settings to make your task automated.

The Tasker is the Android application which does the most of the things on your phone total automatic but the only problem is that it’s the paid application costing your $ 3. Here comes the free solution in the form of the Llama application which has got easier along. So whether you want to switch off your phone at night or keep in silent mode or at college then Llama is for you.
