Managing your mobile devices, apps and computers, and the multitudes of tasks that they run, can become a tad irksome. With numerous social media accounts, various computer devices and monotonous tasks to keep track of, it can become time consuming to ensure everything does what it should do, when it should do it. Automation tools can help greatly in this regard. Ellp is one such app that is very easy to use and can be configured in only a few moments.
Ellp empowers you to set your own rules and easily automate a vast number of day-to-day device tasks. Ellp is founded on the ‘if-this-then-that’ concept, which is applied mainly to connected apps. It uses simple logic to run automation tasks that are specifically carried out on your array of devices.
Ellp can be configured to run tasks such as automatically saving your tagged Facebook photos to a preferred folder, or notifying you when you download the same file multiple times. It can even be configured to open up YouTube each time you plug in your headphones! With Ellp the possibilities are (nearly) endless.
Ellp uses a card system to run and automate tasks. Cards are simple rules that govern a device’s behavior. For example, a card may say ‘at dawn, mute the sound.’ This allows you to specify a particular time which your device is scheduled to switch off its speakers. Cards can be set for a number of automation tasks, such as opening a website when you turn on your computer, or open a specific music player or website each time you plug in your headphones, etc.
The card layouts make it simple to identify its task at-a-glance. Cards are sorted into categories, which cover general subjects such as power use, storage, performance, and security. Setting up cards is straightforward and as soon as you have configured your cards in each category, you are all set. Cards can be switched off, if you would rather manage the task manually, and tasks can be altered at any time you choose.
Overall, Ellp is a clean looking and attractive app that is very easy to use. It is a new take on the device management/automation concept, which it pulls off rather well. Ellp is lightweight, consumes hardly any system resources, and it has a number of categories, which can be configured just the way your like things done, therefore saving you minutes, if not hours, of time.
