Smart WiFi Toggler

Smart WiFi Toggler


Smart WiFi Toggler is an application designed to control your phone's WiFi using location based rules. Its aim is to conserve battery and minimize data charges by turning WiFi off when not connected to a network, and turning it on when a known hotspot is present. It constantly learns where your hotspots are located to make its decisions.
It's a very useful application if you frequently forget to turn WiFi off when leaving a hotspot, or if you want to automatically switch from mobile data to WiFi to conserve battery whenever you're back into a hotspot.

Here are some of cool features Smart WiFi Toggler has to offer:
- Automatically learns your WiFi hotspot locations.
- Turns WiFi off when disconnected from WiFi network.
- Automatically turns WiFi on when near a known hotspot.
- Uses your network location. No GPS battery drain.
- Provides the ability to control "auto-connect" behavior for each hotspot.
- Ability to lock WiFi to a disabled state.
- Warning notification and auto-locking WiFi when a hotspot is down.
- WiFi Hopper: Jump from a weak hot spot to a strong one.
- Toggle network mode on CM based ROMs.
- History, logging, and a troubleshooting screen in case you face any problems.

There is an extensive help section with the app, so be sure to check it out if you have any questions.

Hope you enjoy using Smart WiFi Toggler as much as I enjoyed building it!

Cost me $$$$$ in data charges Toggle the wifi & hotspots great, even saved battery, unfortunately it also decided to override my data lockout settings, and would automatically and randomly turn my data on and cost me huge data overages $$ from my carrier. On at least 10 separate occasions, it locked data open for a 24 hr period and burned through 10 gigs of data overage. Twice right in front of the carrier's service tech it bypassed his data lockouts and turned data back on.

50/50 WiFi comes on automatically about about half the time. I have to manually turn it on the other half. Gets frustrating after awhile

Almost perfect Add turning off 2g/3g when wifi is on and will be perfect.

Stopped working So I installed this on my nexus 5 because I wanted to make sure I used WiFi whenever it was available. Set it up and it worked for two days. Now it constantly attempts to connect to my home WiFi when I'm at work over two miles away and locks itself. Totally useless now as switching WiFi on or off manually disables the app.
