Proximity Wifi

Proximity Wifi


Proximity Wifi toggles your wifi radio based on your proximity to access points you have connected to.
This allows you to save battery when your not near any of the wifi access points you use.
It also allows you to save data usage on your phone by ensuring wifi is on when you are near an access point you have used before.

User reviews of Proximity Wifi
Works more reliably than Auto Wifi Enabler. Haven't had any issues with it yet and I have had it installed for about 1 week

"Saving New WiFi ..." puzzle For some time now I've been puzzled about a message that pops up on my screens that says, "Saving new WiFi ..." where "..." is the name of the WiFi router. It would pop up every 5 minutes or so, and I suspected it was related to my TF700T slight sluggishness and tardy response to touch. I finally tried uninstalling Proximity WiFi to see if that was generating the message, So far - no message. Has anyone else noticed performance hits when using Proximity WiFi, or do they see this message? Three stars because I have no evidence that it was doing what it's supposed to do. Update: I've just discovered that I also now have my power-saving screen blanking timeout back! I wondered why my screen wouldn't blank after 5 minutes inactivity; it was Proximity WiFi that somehow turned it off.

Sometimes it works, sometimes doesn't. Sometimes it disables wifi when in the white zone. Quite annoying. Uninstall now.

It will connect with chosen access points as stated. But it keeps enabling wifi randomly when I am driving around. It drains my battery like crazy.
