Tasker for Android - Total Automation Control 

Android Operating System is quite scalable and can pretty much be played with, in compared with Apple's iOS, which is known in its Walled Garden image. Even Though, sometimes it seems like our Android devices can better serve us in the Daily routines. For this purpose Tasker came to life. Tasker is a Total Automation Application for Android.
To work with Tasker, first the App should be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Tasker isn't Free, but there's A 7 day trial to get you started.
Once installed, you are ready to compose Tasks, Profiles and Scenes according your Automation wishes.

As it can be a little too advanced to create Profiles, there's a Repository of ready made Profiles which can be downloaded to avoid the hustle.

Here are few of my the Profiles I've created:

Tasker Profiles - copy to SD Card-Tasker-Profiles folder.zip 

To add these Profiles in your Tasker, follow these steps:

Download and copy the XML files into the SD Card/Tasker/Profiles directory. Airdroid is highly recommended for this manner:
Now open Tasker on your Android, hit the Home button and select Import: 


Once you've imported my Profiles, you can fine tune it to achieve your best personal preference. Currently I'm using the following Profiles, seeking for more:

1. Night Mode : From 23:15 till 8:00 - Silent Mode on, Auto Brightness off, Display Brightness level 12.

2. Wifi at Home : At Home - Wifi set on.

3. GPS On For Apps : Maps, Latitude, Waze... - Secure Settings configuration GPS Enabled.
