Automate Your Device with Sfen
Changing the profile of your device manually is now long forgotten. Since the advent of Android automation applications like Tasker, we’re now able to take full advantage of automatically enabled profiles. Some OEMs have even noticed that profile management might be a good idea, and they have implemented some features into their stock firmware.
IF you are looking for a free and interesting alternative to Tasker, you should consider meeting Sfen. It’s made by XDA Senior Member greglord. With Sfen, you can create events that can be triggered when certain conditions are met. You can specify an action and the event that is triggered at certain locations.
Using apps like greglord’s can make your phone or tablet significantly smarter and more automated. Setting profiles leads to almost limitless possibilities. You can easily save battery life, start your music player, or start your favorite game when you are going to the can.
Sfen is still at a very early stage of development, so some bugs might still be present. However, the developer is fixing them and collecting ideas to make the app even better in the future.
If you are looking for the tool that will make your device more automated, Sfen may be to your liking. You can get the latest version by visiting the Sfen application thread.
