    I use this together with Tasker to automatically start GPS when opening Maps. Can control many more phone settings, but I need to dig in deeper.

    [No root required but enables more functions] Secure Settings is an amazing collection of helpers that enhance your possibility to control your device. Used as plugin for Tasker, almost any of your device's settings can be managed automatically.

    Android protects some settings and system functions. So you can't normally disable lock screen security from an app, for example. Secure Settings allows you to change protected settings. Used with Tasker, it allows you to have total control over your phone.

    The tasker plugin to have, secure settings allows access to phone locking/direct activity shortcuts/wake time amongst others. Beware, this app is aimed at knowledgeable Android users.
