To teach Llama your current position, go to the Areas tab and long-press your current position, then choose Start Learning Area. The app will now and in the future identify that area based on cell towers in the location. The longer you stay within that area the first time you set it to learn, the better Llama will be able to identify that place. You can also manually add or remove certain cell towers to areas.

It can change lots of settings on your phone, for example you can use MyProfiles to put the phone on silent at the times in the week or locations you shouldn't be disturbed. You can set an exception group from your Android contacts so that important people can still reach you. You can use it to put your phone into airplane mode overnight to save batteries, or when you have a meeting scheduled in your calendar. See More
This app tracks users by GPS and knows if they are sitting still, walking, running, or driving. This functionality can be used to trigger actions when a certain pace is achieved, such as "Play music when I start running." The GPS integration can also be useful for triggering actions when a user leaves or arrives at a location. Popular recipes that use the GPS function are "Remind me to work out if I haven't been to the gym in 3 days" or "Text my boyfriend when I leave work". See More
