Record and Replay Touches and Swipes on Your Android Device

If there’s a repetitive task at hand that requires some furious tapping or swiping, give your fingers a rest. Instead, use an app that’ll record and replay touches, swipes, pauses, and physical keys to do all that for you—something like Android Bot Maker by XDA Senior Member frapeti.

Serving as an automation tool, Android Bot Maker essentially operates as a macro on your Android device with an (almost) endless amount of possibilities. The app works by having a numerically ascending ‘Actions list’ of all the automated actions created by the user which the app then bases itself on when running. Possible actions include physical key presses, text input, putting the phone to sleep for a set duration, and swipes and taps that require input of the desired X and Y coordinates.

The order of actions in the sequence can be rearranged, and sequences can be saved, imported, cleared, and shared onto the various cloud and social networks you may have connected. Settings allow for the toggling of prevention of sleep by the Android system while Android Bot Maker is active, show a notification in the drop-down status bar for stopping an ongoing sequence, and a delayed start of however many seconds the user desires.

Android Bot Maker is still in the beta phase, so frapeti does warn that some bugs may still be present, but frapeti does encourage suggestions and reports in the application thread. The other thing is that a rooted device running Android 4.1 or newer is required to run the app, so don’t expect anything if your device does not fit the requirement—but this shouldn’t be a big deal given that the vast majority of our readers will have root access. So if you would like to check out Android Bot Maker, head over to the original thread.
