    On my last phone (rooted Jelly Bean), Llama tasked my locations via cell towers. On unrooted Marshmallow, it only knows my whereabouts when I have GPS on. Any idea how I can fix this?

    I used to be a very heavy Llama user on my S2 and S4. If Llama didn't know where I was then I would simply ask my missus, as she always seemed to know where I was down to an accuracy of 1 metre!

    But seriously, as good an app as Llama is unfortunately it is not being developed any more, and hasn't been for quite considerable time now. Therefore, you will find the odd hiccup as it was developed using up to JB API's I believe. One such example of somehing that wouldn't work on my rooted S4 on MM was that it could not turn Mobile Data off/on.

    MacroDroid is a brilliant (and I would say far superior) alternative, and is in active development. The dev (Jamie) is extremely helpful, and even has a forum which he participates in regularly. MacroDroid worked perfectly on my S4 (including cell tower triggering), although I must admit, I've not put it on my S7 yet. Even so, its well worth a shot. Its free to use, but you can only create around 4 or 5 macros. I paid up for the full version pretty quickly which allows you to create any number. On my S4 I had about 30 macros running.

    Thanks for this. I uninstalled Llama and installed this program and like it so far. Even paid the money for no ads.

    One thing though this doesn't have that Llama does which I miss is the ability to set certain contacts for custom volumes. Like I have an macro set up for 10pm to 6am to set my volume to low and run a clock program so I do not get disturbed while sleeping and to have my clock program run without me having to open it. In Llama I could set ring volumes custom per contact. Like if my parents wanted to get a hold of me at 3am if they called me my ring volume would be super loud. But if someone else called me like a friend or someone not on my contact book, it would be low volume.

    Why not try putting it as a suggestion in the Feature Request forum.

    Is Macrodroid capable of issuing cell locations as triggers the way Llama can (could)?

    Yes you can. Just define cell tower groups and you can put in a trigger at the group level when changes occur

    How much is the app for unlimited macros?

    Can't remember exactly but it's cheap as chips, about £1.75 I think

    $2.99 is what I paid
    or you can take some surveys to get extra macros beyond 5

    Llama is working again. The local cell relay was out of commission. While I haven't tried it, I downloaded Macrodroid.

    I've recently been using Macrodroid and it's all you said, Hawker. Thanks a lot!
