Modern computers and mobile devices perform a vast range of functions, from helping you keep track of your calendar to storing your photographs, but managing them can be challenging, requiring lots of separate interactions with the device.

Ellp simplifies this process, combining many features into a single app that lets you intelligently manage any PC. With this app, you can customize your device's behavior so that it runs the way you want it to automatically. 

The secret is in the cards

The heart of Ellp is the card system. A card is a simple rule that governs the device's behavior. For instance, one card might say "when it's time for bed, mute the sound." This allows you to specify a particular time at which your device will turn off its speakers. You could also tell it to open a particular website every time you start it up or open your music player every time you plug in your headphones.

It can interact with other apps -for instance, you can tell it to automatically download a copy of a Facebook photo that you're tagged in, and save it in a particular folder. Features range from the general, such as activating online privacy software, to the very specific, such as the card that allows you to automatically delete any file you've downloaded twice.

Simplifying your device management

The clean, colorful card layouts make it easy to identify each one's task at a glance. They're also helpfully sorted into categories covering general subjects like power use, storage, performance, security and more. Once you've been through the cards in a given category, you'll have your settings in that area customized just the way you like them. You don't need to automate every task; you can simply leave cards switched off if you'd prefer to manage a particular feature manually.

You'll find your device performance improving as the app identifies settings you didn't even know you could control that will save on memory and processing power. A lot of frustrating minor adjustments and repetitive tasks simply disappear when you start using this app; for instance, you'll never find yourself suddenly realizing you're out of storage space again. It runs comfortably in the background, occasionally popping up to let you know it's doing something.

An easy way to control varied device functions

If going through your startup routine every day is a hassle, or if you find yourself changing your device settings frequently, Ellp can be a great help. If you're a user who doesn't find managing device settings a pain, it might be less useful -but you could still find that there are things you don't know you'd benefit from.

The interface is clean, attractive and easy to use; with a little assistance, even younger device users could probably make sense of it. Overall, then, this is a handy tool for taking some of the hassle out of day-to-day device management tasks.
