The modern technology has opened the door to a connected, high-tech world that was a dream a few years back. The power and capability of our phones and tablets continue to increase manifold, and the smartphones are becoming smarter. It is incredible how much our phones can do with just a little setup. The newest addition to the list of things are smartphones can do is automating tasks using either built-in functions or added apps/services that are readily available.
Let’s take a look at how our phones can perform tasks by automation apps on the device. Functions performed by the automation apps can be now forgotten about. This saves a lot of time that can then be utilized for the things that matter.
How to use Automation Apps?
The smartphones are leaving no stone unturned to spoil people and making them heavily dependent on technology. With all of its wonder and conveniences, smartphones and tablets can help us solve most of our everyday problems and reduce the burden of performing specific tasks every day.
Uses of Automation Apps
1. Automate Wi-Fi Based On Location and Charger Connection
Automating Wi-Fi is an extremely simple concept. It is the perfect solution for problems of wi-fi eating up the entire battery. Most people don’t want their wifi enabled unless they have their phones plugged in because of the amount of power the Wi-Fi consumes. Wi-Fi Automation monitors the power supply and allows the wi-fi whenever it is plugged in. This saves a lot of people from draining their batteries on wifi.
Another significant use of automation apps are when you’re at home and want to use your Wi-Fi, and stop your smartphone from consuming the data from your cellular data plan. The automation app helps you save cellular data without having you to remember to switch it off every time you are in a registered wifi range.
2. Automating Bluetooth Connections
Another similar concept is to automate your Bluetooth connections. This app is very flexible, and lets you enable or disable Bluetooth depending on the location of your phone and whether it is in the range of any of your paired devices. So in case you have a power supply plugged in, or want the Bluetooth enabled upon incoming calls, you can automate your Bluetooth settings and only use Bluetooth to pair with a Bluetooth headset. The app settings help you define how you want to automate Bluetooth as per your conditions.
3. Automating Smartphone as per Schedule Or On Events
This feature is a lot more complicated than just automating the enabling or disabling of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Automation app allows you to automate and customize tasks on the phone at the time of a certain event taking place, or on a regular automated schedule. Through these apps, you first create the tasks, then define their schedules or delays for those tasks, and then set the alarms accordingly.
Automating an action that you want should occur either after a certain trigger or on a schedule can help you save time as well as effort. The types of actions that the automated apps perform include opening a file stored on your device or a website URL, launching the main screen of any app on the device, running a shortcut or customizing your unique actions.
These apps let you dictate how exactly you want to automate those tasks. The defined tasks can be delayed after the trigger event as well. You can automatically launch tasks on a schedule by just setting alarms as well.
Configuring Automatic Phone Profiles
Another useful way of automating your apps is by configuring automatic profiles. This app is simple but very useful. You set up either time or location profiles that have specific settings for ring mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and telephone. This app is mostly used to control when the phone is in vibrate-only mode, or in normal ringtone mode according to the location of the phone.
By configuring all the apps you can ensure that your phone is almost entirely automated, and it can launch apps, websites or files on a schedule or based on other actions, making your automation possibilities nearly unlimited.
Future of Automation Apps
The most significant innovation in the age of automation is the working models built around human-machine collaboration. As robots take over the routine tasks, humans are starting to move into the space of newly created roles such as data analytics, robotic engineering and other roles that require the unique qualities such as creativity, initiative, leadership, and teamwork.
All these developments underline the fact that human skills will continue to have a pivotal role in the modern workplace. However, for its potential to be realized, businesses must ensure that workers have the right skills to meet these future challenges. Artificial intelligence is the latest in a long line of remarkable developments designed and delivered by humans that ensure the benefits of this innovation extend to everyone.
