WiFi Automatic (WiFi Auto-Off)

WiFi Automatic (WiFi Auto-Off)


This simple app can help you increase the standby time of your device: WiFi Automatic automatically disable your WiFi radio when you don't need it and thereby lowers the battery consumption.
It is designed to be used with WiFi-only* tablets - these devices normally don't require a constant internet connection if you're not using them and turning WiFi off can save a lot of battery power.

You can also specify to automatically turn on WiFi again, if you turn on your device. Also, the app can regularly scan for available networks to connect to and re-disable WiFi if no suitable network is found. This way, you are always connected to your WiFi network when using the device.

This app has a similiar effect like setting the "WiFi sleep policy" in Android to "always", except that you can now exactly define the timeout between turning the screen off and actually turning off WiFi.


* if your device has a cell radio, it might switch to 2G/3G/4G which may consume more power then staying on WiFi

Open source, add free! Hi I've used many wi-fi auto/toggle/timer apps. This so far is the best. It's so close to what I've been looking for.____ All I would want changed is the option that turns off the wi-fi x minutes after the phone falls asleep, to every x minutes after it fell asleep.____ This would allow the phone (while not being used) grab email/social info from wi-fi and notify the user of anything important so often and go to sleep right after. Thus reducing the time the wi-fi is on considerably while in sleep mode near a hotsopt.____ Other than that, awesome app!

Don't waste your time on another deceitful app As soon as you try to use this, it informs you that it cannot connect to a network, which kinda defeats the purpose of the app. Also, before you download, bear in mind that you will be asked to pay a subscription charge, meaning it isn't free.
