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!

Not so good anymore Upgrade to lollipop on S4. The new OS meets my needs better than this app. Lollipop does a better job of seemlessly switching from wifi and back from tower without buffering alot. How do you uninstall this app of yours. It won't uninstall ,only will turn off.

Bumped it down from 4 stars to 3 because it keeps locking when I'm diving home. I have to drive by my house do it thinks I'm home then locks me out. I have to unlock it every day I come home from work which defeats the purpose. When I'm walking or diving in traffic it works fine. App keeps asking me to rate it even after I rated it once, this rating will slowly go down to one star the more it annoys me.

It works! I've procrastinated on writing a review for some time now. It seemed to work "out of the box" but took a while to get used to the process of connecting to a new location. No problems.
