Multitasking is overrated; it rather decreases productivity in most of the cases. Smartphones and computers today are packed with many advanced features and tool and apps but managing these apps and programs on your device are easier said than done. This is where Ellp comes in handy. Ellp, a free task automation software gives you a better device experience by simplifying technology. The program uses some tools to connect and automate things on your device, may it be freeing the disk space or downloading Facebook photos.
Automate PC Tasks
Ellp is an application which automates your tasks allowing you to work comfortably on your devices. It comes in a lightweight file and takes less than a minute to land and install on your PC. Ellp works with a card system where each card specifies a particular task. You just need to flip the cards one by one and configure the settings according to your preferences. You don’t necessarily need to activate every card; you can keep some of them deactivated if you want. While the cards are clearly displayed in the main overview, they are also sorted into various categories like Storage, Internet, Schedule, and Devices.
Free up disk space
This is what the first card says. You just need to flip the first card and activate it. Once activated, this card lets you know when the hard disk of your device starts getting full and will also help you free up space. You can adjust the percentage according to your preferences; the program is by default set at 85% which means that Ellp will start cleaning the junk files from your PC once your disk space is 85% full. Activating this card will help you get rid of the unwanted files clogging space on your PC. The program smoothly runs in the background to manage your disk space and may occasionally let you know it’s working with a small pop-up window.
Download tagged photos from Facebook
Ellp’s second card lets you download the Facebook photos you are tagged in. Once you flip and activate this card, Ellp will automatically download the photos from Facebook as soon as you are tagged in. While this is mentioned as an automatic feature of Ellp, do remember that it asks for your intervention. You need to be logged in your Facebook account and authorize the app to access your profile. You also need to specify a folder for Facebook photos.
Block duplicate file download
We often download the duplicate files thereby clogging the disk space. This is where the third card of Ellp helps. Once activated, this card blocks the duplicate file download, may it be a photo, a document, email attachments or some app. If accidentally you download a duplicate file, Ellp keeps the most recent one and deletes the older ones automatically.
Frequent notifications sometimes become annoying, especially when we are sleeping. Flip the fourth card, and you can schedule your PC to go mute. Adjust the time and Ellp will automatically mute your PC in the selected hours.
Flipping the fifth card in Ellp will automatically start a music website as soon as you plug in your headphones or any other sound output device. You can select the preferred website from the drop-down menu or can add it manually. Flip the card, activate it and select the website you want to enjoy the music on. The options here include YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo or more. Please note that Ellp recognizes the devices only via USB port.
Open your favorite website
We all have some of our favorite websites to visit first as soon as we turn our PC on. This next card on Ellp is a kind of shortcut to open your favorite website as soon as your computer system boots. Either click on Other and select the website from the drop-down menu or add your favorite website manually. The websites added by default are Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and YouTube.
Launch Skype automatically
The next card is for frequent Skype users. Flip the card and activate it to launch Skype messenger every time you plug in your headphones. Just plugin in your headphones and you are all set to connect with your friends without any delay.
Shutdown your PC
Flip the last card and schedule the shutdown of your PC. You can also choose your PC to Hibernate, Sleep or Restart. Just flip the card, select the time zone and the desired option, that’s it! Ellp the multitasking program will then follow the instructions and carry out what’s needed.
