I recently made a full factory reset on my Sony Xperia X Compact, only to find out that the Llama app is gone from the play store (This link is dead for me).

Also the author's website looks really outdated.

It has served me well for years (heck, it even prevented me from defaulting to an iPhone).

What has happened to Llama, and it's developer? Why it's gone from the store?

  • Sorry, unless there's an official statement from the developer or through an interview, we also can't answer it. Also, there are so many possible reasons for why it's removed from the Play Store, and pure guesses/speculations aren't acceptable on Stack Exchange. You can still download it from alternative markets/APK mirror sites (e.g. APKMirror) if you want. – Andrew T. Dec 7 at 22:06

I don't know whether it is the exact same app, but I found an app called 'Automate', which is written by 'LlamaLab'? Maybe it just changed name?


Though, I admit, this seems unlikely, as the web page you pointed to earlier does not seem to have been updated since 2014. (I never used Llama myself, so I don't know what it looked like.)

  • Using 'com.kebab.Llama' (the package name) as the keyword, it's a location profile app, and the developer is known as KebabApps, so this is really unlikely. – Andrew T. Dec 7 at 22:10
  • It aims to the same goal, but I do find it more complicated to use. I implemented some of my rules there, but I do not like it that much. – Marcel Dec 9 at 6:06
