Wi-Fi Matic - Auto WiFi On Off


Important: this app is not designed to reveal Wi-Fi passwords, neither to help you to set up your phone to connect to a Wi-Fi for the first time. Please, read carefully the description and if it is not what you are looking for, do not download it.

Wi-Fi Matic is an Android app that activates and deactivates Wi-Fi of your device automatically depending on your location, helping you to save battery and consumption of data through your operator network.

It detects automatically the location of known Wi-Fi networks (f.i: home, office, etc.), turns on Wi-Fi when you arrive a place where there is Wi-Fi, and turns it off when you leave that place.

After some training (*), the app should learn all your commonly used Wi-Fi access points, allow your device to use Wi-Fi in the usual places and keep Wi-Fi off where it is not needed.

- How does it work?

It DOES NOT USE GPS nor Android network location services, as it uses your operator network cell identifiers (cell tower identifiers) as the relative location where you are, and where your Wi-Fi networks are. It is designed to minimize usage of resources and battery.

Wi-Fi Matic detects and learns automatically locations where you are connected to a Wi-Fi, not needing much configuration. It also allows you to manage manually your Wi-Fi when needed not interfering with you or with your device data connections.

- How is it used?

1.- Run the app and click on "Enable Wi-Fi Matic".
2.- If you want to connect to a Wi-Fi for the first time, do it as usual in the Android Wireless networks settings menu. If you want to connect to a Wi-Fi you have already connected to before, just turn on Wi-Fi manually and let Android establish connection.
3.- And that's all: Wi-Fi Matic will learn your Wi-Fi location when you get connected. Whenever you leave that place, Wi-Fi will be automatically turned off and whenever you get back, Wi-Fi will be automatically turned on (*)

(*) Depending on your mobile carrier network configuration and your access point signal strength, Wi-Fi Matic might need some time to precisely learn all needed cell tower identifiers and work accurately. Check Frequently Asked Questions.

Works OK, but disconnection timeout does NOT WORK. Been using this for a week and every day I notice my WiFi is still enabled and draining my battery all morning at work, while it should have been disabled 1 minutes after leaving the connection at my house (as I set it in the settings).

Very useful! I used to have a set of tasks on Tasker to perform the actions this application performs. The only difference is that Wi-Fi Matic is really simple. For me, it became a must-have application now! Please, make a donation, the developer surely deserves it for such great work!

Needs days of the week Good app. Needs more micro management in the time to deactivate wifi section. Adding days of the week will make it perfect

Pretty good Works well. still trying to determine how much it affects my battery. I just wish there was a way to tell it not to turn WiFi on except when it finds the ones I've already connected to. I very rarely want to connect to public WiFi, and I hate that it constantly turns on WiFi when I'm driving thru commercial areas.
