AutoSync Account Activator

AutoSync Account Activator


Enables/disables accounts autosync on configured conditions (connection to cellular data and wifi networks), exposes configuration options not commonly available (periodic sync).

You do not change manually autosync in Accounts configuration, it is set by this application according to rules.

It is possible in expert mode to reveal push sync authorities and configure them, e.g. disable.

Detailed description:
Application enables/disables autosync for each account based on configured conditions for that account. Once installed you do not set autosync in accounts manually, it is done by this application.

For example you enable your google account on cellular data and no wifi. Then as soon as your phone connects to any wifi then autosync for that google account is disabled. If phone connects to cellular data, google account autosync is enabled again.

This is useful e.g. at work. You enable for your work wifi only exchange account autosync and disable everything else. Then when you are at work only your exchange account is syncing and nothing else (e.g. google accounts whose autosync could block phone because it could not get through firewall at work). As soon as you leave work phone connects cell data and your google accounts are activated and synchronized.

This feature protects also your privacy, because if you connect to some foreign wifi, then indeed no account is configured to be enabled on it so for all accounts autosync is disabled.

Periodic sync feature is standard Android feature - to synchronize periodically accounts which have enabled autosync. Periodic sync is syncing only if master autosync is enabled in Android. Because it is not possible to configure it in std. Android (there are no screens for it) I have incorporated it into this applicaton.
For push sync accounts (e.g. Google) periodic sync is often ignored.

Good app I was hoping this would work for blocking Google play updates. Since it doesn't, I have no use for it. For what it does, it's perfect.

Turns off all the sync after installation. So you have to turn everything back on again... Does not do much overall difference.

perfect This works! I'm sorry that this app is not more popular on Play. I'm able to control what is synced an on which connections (wifi/cellular). It's a bit confusing how to use, but it gets clear once you read an article "AutoSync Account Activator explained" (google it). My only wish is that there is even more control to which authorities are synced on which networks, but it's just nag...i actually managed to set up my configuration with available options. I would also love to have an android intent available to run from Llama or Tasker to immediately sync (uncheck+check) certain account/authority or even change some settings through the intent.

This should be a standard feature of Android or any other operating system. A suggestion: instead of a list of connections, just give the option of cellular or open wifi. Thanks Ondrej!
