Advanced Wifi Lock (Free)

Advanced Wifi Lock (Free)


This app forces wifi to stay connected when the screen is turned off and should work on all devices (phone or tablet).

Features:
• Stops wifi disconnecting when screen is turned off
• Optional timeout so you don't accidentally leave the phone awake for too long
• Ability to automatically disable wifi if you get disconnected from your wireless Access point (e.g. out of range)
• No ads!

Full Version Includes:
• Widget to quickly enable/disable
• Customisable timeout
• Option to ignore timeout when device is charging
• Fully customisable 'Auto Disable Grace Period'

If this app works for you, please consider buying the full version.

Please Note: This app uses a wake-lock to prevent the phone from sleeping, leaving the phone in a wake-state for too long will use excessive battery power.

The Timeout starts from when the screen is turned off, and gets reset when the screen is turned back on.

Exclude this app from any automatic task killers.

User reviews of Advanced Wifi Lock (Free)
Does what it says. Keeps our two Samsung Captivate phones on our WiFi. The downside is that it's a Battery Hog. Both phones now charge down much faster. This is the app that's doing it.

Works well for Gingerbread on Samsung Galaxy S, where other similiar programs don't. However it drains a lot of battery, not sure if there is a better way though as I got a feeling the flaw lies within Android itself.

Worked! Çalıştı! I have been trying to find a program that can keep my wifi alive for some time, and this one worked wery well. Bir süredir wifi yi sürekli açık tutacak bir uygulama arıyordum sonunda iyi çalışan bir program buldum.
