BuzzKill is a super useful application that helps you minimize distractions of notification,
Buzzkill not only helps you minimizes notifications that don’t help you but at the same time extends useful notifications to stand out from all notifications,
So now on you miss the super important notifications.
Here is how BuzzKill helps,
You can create rules based on different criteria like
- App wise,
- Time schedule-wise,
- Based on notification content (text, image, title)
Once your base criteria are set now you can use the available information to manipulate it, like
- If Notification is from a WhatsApp group and group name contains specific word the Don’t dissmiss the notification or set custom notification soud or set notification can’t be cleared, So you won’t miss it in all notification.
- If notification received during specific time of the day and then read the notification.
- Mute the notification if phone screen is on,
these are just a few things you can do with it rest is up to you how you are going to use it,
currently, I am using a few rules like,
- Speak the specific notification text during day time when phone screen is off.
- Batch notification of selected apps to deliver every 6 hours ( apps are like zomato, swiggy and other apps that are not so important)
- Another rule is also set the bypasses the above rule if specic text is found in the notification, so that my order that are out of delivery those notificatons are not dealyed.
By using these automation apps you can pretty much control every aspect of your android device with ease, you can even interact with the internet to share and receive information using these apps.
Complexity level high
Tasker app is not beginner-friendly and is not recommended for any person who lacks technical knowledge. Tasker is a great app and the community built around it can help you if you are stuck on something and not able to complete it yourself.
Use case of this app depends on what task of your day to day life you want to automate using Tasker like I use Tasker to mute Spotify ads on Android.
- Tasker app can be used to auto-launch and kill any app when certain conditions are met,
- You can do some task-based change in android device sensors, log files update, time-based trigger.
Tasker is not a single app offered by the developer,
Many features of the Tasker app can be extended by installing additional apps like AutoInput, AutoCast and many more that can be found in the Google play store also many community-made apps and plugins are also available that can extend the functionality of the Tasker app.
If you are interested in trying Tasker before buying then you can download the Tasker app from joaoapps.com has 7 days Trail period.
Automate (In-App purchase)
Complexity level medium
Automate is as powerful as Tasker only difference for a normal person like us is UI of Automate makes it easy to use and beginner-friendly.
Every task is arranged in a logical flow, you can customize flow as you need, you can share your flow with the community and download flow from the community.
Every step is called a block in-app and the app has more than 330 blocks only thing you need to do is connect them logically to automate a task,
The free version of Automate has a limit on the number of blocks can be used in single flow and that is enough to test how Automate can magically automate your daily routine tasks. Full version can be unlocked with in-app purchase.
Macrodroid (In-App purchase)
Complexity level low
Macrodroid is a great application for Android automation task. Macrodroid’s wizard for automating any tasks makes it most user-friendly android automation app in this list, as anyone with basic knowledge can use Macrodroid.
While it’s easier to use Macrodroid it doesn’t mean it lacks features that other apps have, you can pretty much do everything that other apps do like trigger actions based on time, location, sensors data.
SD Maid Pro
Every android phone at start runs smoothly but overtime it starts getting laggy and slow due to hardware degradation and junk stored on your android device,
To clean that junk from your device you need SD Maid pro, its a true system cleaning tool and not like any other android cleaner and booster app that claims to clean your android but bloats you with ads, trackers, malware.
With SD Maid Pro you will be able to remove residual left by uninstalled apps, remove duplicates files, ability to clear app cache one by one or all at once, storage analyze to know where your androids actual space used.
App permissions are always risky, you don’t know which app starts to misbehave and collects your personal data.
Android apps access information from the android device based on permission given to them, you can limit apps which permission they can have or which not but managing permission of hundreds of app is not an easy task, what if you want to give just temporary permission to any app then you have to manually remove permission from that app.
In that situation bouncer app comes to rescue you, you can manage every apps permission with one app. After installing bouncer whenever you give permission to any app Bouncer will ask if you want to keep it or remove permission from that app after a certain time or on the closing of the app.
Once you set how long permission any app can keep next time when you give same permission to same app Bouncer will remove permission based on the option you chose last time.
Bouncer app is a safe app, it doesn’t require an internet connection or any other permission to work other than permission to change settings, that is needed to remove permissions from the app.
Relay for Reddit
If you used Reddit’s official android app then you will definitely love Relay for Reddit app because the Official app lacks customization that Relay app brings to the table.
Reddit is a place of public community for everything and users post and comments on things they are interested in, Reddit’s official app doesn’t help that much in feeling that experience but Relay for Reddit app makes that experience smooth, you can easily navigate and browse through comments and subreddits.
On top of that, you can customize look and feel of app as you like and enjoy browsing credit with smooth animations.
