When it comes to listening to your phone in various situations like, a park, in your car or. even in a supermarket to name but three, you often need to set your volume level for each scenario. Now an app call AutomateIt has released an update which they say gives stability improvements and bug fixes.
Along with the updates comes,
• New Trigger: Activity Recognition – an EXPERIMENTAL trigger that detects when you are in a car, on a bicycle, on foot or standing still
• You can now decide if you want a popup message per rule and not only as a global setting
• Updated translation

Conclusions:
This is an excellent app used to automate common tasks on your phone. I use it to increase the volume when walking around the park, lower all volumes during the night, set a low battery notification and most importantly, I set a rule to turn off Wifi when the screen goes to sleep. This last rule allowed me to extend my battery life by an entire day. The AutomateIt pro gives you ten more triggers for the princely sum of £1.00.
