    I used this function on the original maxx and RAZR maxx HD. With this new Droid maxx, is there something similar? I had a sleep action which would come at a set time. I miss the Smart Actions function.

    Yes. Look for an app named assist.

    Tasker is another option. It's working logic is a little weird, but only if you want to get really technical.

    I use SAS, Smart Auto Settings. It works good, kind of crazy setting times but good. I miss Smart Actions too. Why can't they bring it back??

    I'm guessing the closing of certain 'avenues' in Android may have contributed to that.

    Motorola changed hands and direction after the Google purchase, and, with everything that has changed in the Droids, I think it's clear that they were going for a couple of things: close to stock Android, and anything that was added was made to be as simple to use as possible. Smart Actions was developed by the "old" Motorola, a company that basically failed and had to be sold.

    Smart actions can be replicated by power users with great third party apps, but for less technical users, Assist, Touchless Controls, etc., are easy to set up and do what they do simply and well.
