Macro Effect

Macro Effect


Is the perfect companion while playing PC games, or even doing the most common tasks through shortcuts in a PC program.
Macro Effect is an application for creating custom macros on the phone, and run them on the computer via WiFi. Each Profile (named after a program or game, preferably) will serve a 3 by 3 grid of completely programmable buttons. Create as many profiles as needed, and have them close to you while working or playing.
Works in World of Warcraft (WoW), Age of Conan (AoC), and many more!
It's possible that this application won't work on every single game/app. But check on the always-changing list below for a list of tested games.

Features:
-Create as many profiles you need.
-Configure cooldowns to each macro button to constantly know when to use them again
-Custom names and icons for the totally programmable macros.
-Enable English Text-To-Speech to when executing a macro.
-Various icons to display when working, crafting, attacking, healing, defending, socializing, and many more.
-Import from the gallery personalized icons downloaded from the app's website, the internet, or even made by yourself (Size: 50px by 50px)
-Perfect for RPGs MMOs, and RTSs!
-Apply your actions in Photoshop as quick as tapping your phone once. Have the macro do whatever you want.

Uhh... The app.is not worth the download cuz you need a external program to run it and the external program needs port forwarding plus when I installed the external program I got a notification from norton security saying that this was a unsafe program...bottom line don't get it

Functionality is great, UI needs improvements PROS: >This app does what it implies. It adds macros to your mobile device. > You can use CTRL, ALT and Shift in combination with any keyboard keys. > You can add delays and cooldowns to macro commands > You can have multiple profiles for different games. >Auto-scans for your computer's IP so you don't have to manually punch it in. CONS: >Having to hit the settings button to save any changes. Changes should be saved automatically when backing through menus. Had to re-make my macro three times before I found this out. >Have to edit profile to edit macros. User should be able to long-press macros for options. >Unable to rearrange/edit macro commands. Should be able to long-press for an options list. >Unable to add messages. One great thing about macros is being able to quick-send messages, something this app should support. Overall, great potential, hoping to see some updates.
