Trigger


Note: We are still working on Trigger! There will be an update soon.

Bored of putting your phone on silent every time you get into the office? Tired of turning off Bluetooth to conserve battery every time juice gets low?

This app interacts with your surroundings to configure settings on your phone automatically. Combine triggers and actions to create tasks, then activate the tasks that you create with conditions that you set!

Here are examples of what you can do:

In your car: Use Bluetooth as a trigger to open GPS and launch your favorite music app

On your nightstand: Program an NFC tag to set your ringer to vibrate, dim your display and set an alarm

In your home: Configure mobile data to turn off when your phone detects your own Wifi


The current triggers are as follows:

-NFC
-Bluetooth
-Wifi

And as part of our Pro-Upgrade we also have these additional triggers:

-Battery Level
-Location
-Time triggers


And here are a few examples of the actions that you can perform:

- Change WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile hotspot, airplane mode (root users in Jelly Bean and up), auto-sync, GPS (root users), and mobile data settings.
- Change your volumes or notification tones.
- Change your display brightness, timeout, auto-rotation, or notification light settings
- Check in on social media like Foursquare or Google Places
- Send messages using Twitter, SMS, Email, or Glympse
- Start or stop Applications (root required for stopping applications), dock modes, open URLs, speak text, or navigate to an address
- Set Alarms or create calendar events
- MORE!


This app allows you to easily program your device to do the actions you do regularly.
So go ahead and create your own combinations to automate your life. The only limit is what you can come up with!

The Wall Street Journal calls it "living in the future."

Additional actions can be found when experimental features are enabled in advanced settings. Auto lock screen and airplane mode are restricted by Android but we've created some work around solutions for these actions. (Note: They aren't 100% reliable which is why they're classed as "experimental features").

Some demos can be viewed on the application website

Note: When using NFC Tags you can create a Switch task that will toggle between two tasks with each tap.

We're always working on adding new actions to Tasks. Please get in touch if there's something you'd like to do that's not currently offered.

This application supports NFC Forum Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4 Tags as well as third party NFC Enabled tags like the MIFARE Classic, DESFire, Ultralight and Ultralight C. Now supporting read-only tags & allowing you to write any amount of data to any tag using Tagstand's cloud service. This allows you to use your tags just as you would any writable tag without worrying about size.

Automated hot spot in car Trying to automate turning on/off wifi hot spot when connecting/disconnecting from car bluetooth head unit. Turns off regular wifi but won't turn on the wifi hot spot. Running on Samsung GS5 and lollipop. Down to 2 stars due to no response to email and lack of update.

works great, however.... I have been using Trigger for roughly 2 years now. Great app. After having it for 1 year, I decided to purchase the Pro package. After a year of having the Pro package, the added benefits have stopped working and the app has reverted to the basic app. I have tried to uninstall and install again. I have tried resetting the app. NOTHING. So after exhausting every method I knew, I decided to contact Trigger. NO response from them after trying every available method they give. If you decide to purchase the Pro version, buyer beware that once you do, you are on your own. So disappointed! If it wasn't for horrible customer service, this app has a lot of potential. I liked it better than Tasker, because it is so much easier to use.
