No-donation Llama

Due to some recent changes in the Play Store’s policies Llama no longer has a donation app, nor in-app purchases.

Instead, if you like Llama you should donate to some charities. Even if you don’t like Llama you should donate to charity too. It gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside!

Thanks for all the support over the last four years. I still plan to work on Llama, but as you may have noticed, the updates have been much less frequent recently. Hopefully nothing in Android L breaks stuff catastrophically, but I’m sure Google will do their usual removal of useful device-control APIs (*cough* airplane mode)


  • Remove donation IAPs
  • Notification action now expands variables
  • Don't crash when decoding a dodgy Locale Plugin intent

Llama menu

Not much exciting in this release. Llama's ageing UI doesn't play nice with some phones that have no physical menu button, and don't show the legacy on-screen menu button. This version puts the items that are in the menu-button menu into the Llama button's list of menu items.


  • Llama? button's menu now shows menu items that appear in the old-skool Android menu button popup menu

Toasty Llama

I've added a quick and simple feature to Llama. You can now pop up toast messages (those are the grey boxes towards the bottom of the screen) as part of events. You may want to use these to debug your events or maybe as a quick and simple reminder to do something. You can also get them to show the values of Llama variables. This will be useful if you use the toggle, increment or decrement variable actions. To show a variable surround it by two hashes. e.g. The value is ##blah##


  • Added Toast action so you can show messages, including Llama variables
  • Added option to vibrate when unlocking profiles
  • Fixed call state problem when ringing

Usual deal... back up your Llama settings before installing test versions

Merry Bugfix Christmas Llama

This version fixes a few issues with Llama.


  • Fixed bug caused by weird Bluetooth device names
  • Ignore cells that are Integer.MAX_VALUE, since they are clearly wrong
  • When a profile is locked until a certain time, and then you relock to that profile again, Llama will just adjust the unlock time, rather than cancelling the lock altogether.
  • Updated Russian translations

  • Ability to stop queued sounds with the play a sound action
  • Headset condition can differentiate between a headset that has a microphone or no microphone
  • Can now import from a Llama URL, since clicking Llama links is flakey :(
  • Updated Russian translations

As always, backup your data before installing test versions

Llama flight

In Android 4.2 airplane mode was made a system setting, so Llama couldn't change it without root access. After 4.3 Llama can no longer use normal API calls to send the broadcast that needs to be dispatched after changing the airplane mode setting. Therefore, Llama now sends this broadcast using root access and the am command.

Here's an Android issue tracker item that's related.


  • Fixed flight mode in Android 4.3 (still requires root access)
  • Added Brazilian translation
  • Updated French translation

As usual, backup your data before installing test versions.
