Record and Replay Touch Events with RepetiTouch

Don’t you hate the process of “grinding” in video games? For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, grinding (also known as “farming”) refers to tedious and repetitive actions that are performed in order to build up experience points, credits, or anything else within a game. Often times, these actions consist of clicking on certain onscreen items or drawing repetitive patterns on your touch screen.

Luckily, Android is far and away the most versatile and widely used mobile operating system today. By virtue of this, users can perform nearly limitless tasks on their mobile devices, and one such capability is to script repetitive actions. This is where RepetiTouch by XDA Senior Member cygery comes in.

Just as its name implies, RepetiTouch allows users to record and repeat certain touch events. This functionality is summoned with a system-wide and ever-present panel that shows record and replay buttons. With just a click of a button, you can then record and replay your repetitive tasks. You can even set the repeated action to occur on loop, in order to farm most effectively, create an infinite amount of new folders, or perform any other repetitive task.

There are two versions of the app, a free and a paid version. However, the free version is highly functional in that it supports mutlitouch recording, allows virtually unlimited recording time, offers loop mode, and pretty much packs almost everything found in the pro version except for automation app integration and a movable panel. Obviously, however, you need root access to even run the app in the first place.

You can get started by heading over to the RepetiTouch application thread.
