Works perfectly! Saves steps & I appreciate that. Clarification: users seem confused. Widget is a toggle for a feature in your phone OS (2.2 hotspot). If your phone doesn't have this feature becuase you don't have 2.2 or u do & yor carrier disabled it, DON'T blame the developer!!!! (Evo users, Sprint wants your extra $30/mo for this feat that's why it doesn't work!!!)

Bravo! Finally I find a widget that turns wi-fi back on after leaving the hotspot. I wanted an easy way for my wife to use her tablet from her phone's hotspot feature, but searching the app store took hours before finding a toggle that would return her phone's wi-fi state without having to go and turn it back on when she was done using the hotspot. It's so useful that I installed it on my phone too for using my tablet. *[Note: My phone uses Android 5.0 Lollipop which breaks widget so I dropped a star until fixed]

Doesn't work on Android 5 Does nothing. Also, when I went back to uninstall, it had a full screen of the program icons overlayed against Google Play, no idea what that was, but I had to reboot. Samsung S5.
