WiFi Automatic

WiFi Automatic


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.

You can also specify to automatically turn on WiFi again, if you turn on your device or when you enter a specified location (requires a cell radio and therefore does not work on WiFi-only tablets!). 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.

WiFi Automatic is open source: https://github.com/j4velin/WiFi-Automatic

A WiFi connection generally uses less power than a mobile data connection, so on your phone, it makes sense to keep the WiFi radio active, whenever a WiFi network is in range

Very good Very good application. Now i am using 2 more applications for wifi connection. One is "WiFi on/ off switch widget" and "Best WIFI". Wish functions of both added with this application. The 1st one is to switch off wifi manually when needed. 2nd one selects best wifi when there are multiple wifi connections.

Charging priority! I guess the developer is more concerned on switching wifi off when screen goes off. Hey! When the device is connected to charger let the 'keep wifi on when charging' override the 'wifi off when screen goes off' feature till the device is on charger. I think that makes sense!

Nice app. Would like the ability to always turn off at a location. It would also be nice to be able to set different options for the weekend. Would have given 4 stars, but minus 1 for developer's snarky and unhelpful remarks.
