What I'm looking for is some sort of macro-recorder (though that term seems to be hijacked now my macro-photography apps).

I'd like to record a set of presses (specifically, beating a level in a game), and then have those repeated for me so I can accumulate in-game currency without wasting my time or a ton of money.

I imagine there would be other practical uses as well, but I'm not finding anything to do this in Google Play.

MacroDroid and Tasker both looked promising, but you can only assign predefined actions to predefined events - not a set of touches.

    @AlEverett This seems different as this question also wants a way to play touches back without user interaction. – Peanut May 9 '13 at 13:35
  • I saw that question, 'seeing touches' as answered there is not at all what I'm looking for. – Ehryk May 9 '13 at 13:53
  • That's why it says "possible duplicate". – ale May 9 '13 at 14:07

I've developed such an app called RepetiTouch. It's currently in beta stage and aimed at developers, but a limited free version is available here. However, it needs a rooted device running Android 2.3 or later.

As far as I know, currently no other app with this functionality exists, but there are some tools/scripts providing such features using a computer and an USB connection, e.g., here.

Anyway, I discourage any use of any such apps or tools for farming.

    Neato, I just so happen to be a developer (mostly C# and Javascript, but I tinker), with a rooted S-Off HTC Rezound running CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2.2). Thanks! – Ehryk May 10 '13 at 6:57
  • When I open the app I just get "No usable input event file was found." with an -Exit- button. – Ehryk May 10 '13 at 7:02
  • Probably your device/touchscreen driver doesn't expose the interface needed by my app, i.e., this particular input event file. However, you can contact me via email so we can find out for sure. – cygery May 10 '13 at 7:16
  • Great application! OK I admit using it to farm sometimes but not only :) – Franck Dernoncourt Jan 31 '15 at 16:36
  • I wonder if you have a latest version of this application which will be compatible in android marshmallow. – Polar Aug 15 '17 at 10:17

The only app I know of that works fine is "Android Bot Maker" (XDA link here)

sadly, it can't record the touches, but you can set it manually yourself, by finding out the coordinates by enabling "show pointer location" on the developers category of the OS settings.

HiroMacro Auto-Touch Macro works well for me.

You can try the Culebra GUI: https://github.com/dtmilano/AndroidViewClient/wiki/Culebra-GUI. It is a python-based tool that lets you record interactions and re-run them.

If you want to do this on an Android Emulator. By using Memu, you have a button to record and play a script.

I wrote a script to record and playback the events like touching, accelerator, gyro, and etc.. https://github.com/tzutalin/adb-event-record

I had made a java application which does Android Record N Play

I am the developer for 123Autoit-nonroot, the latest version has include the function of macro record and play back action, the app is free to use.

here is the demo of the Macro Record and playback 123Autoit-nonroot action record and playback demo
