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 which may consume more power then staying on WiFi


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

Recent changes:
- fixed setting for NO_NETWORK_TIMER was ignored
- fixed WiFi never turned off if unlocked/display turned on during NO_NETWORK_TIMER was active
- switched target SDK to KitKat

Use "Wi-Fi Automatic" instead of this one This probably has some great bells and whistles that I just didn't need, but it didn't do the basics, hence my low score. I wanted to control my settings so that 1) the wifi comes on when a power source is introduced and 2) the wifi turns off once a power source is removed. This app does #1 (and well), but does not do #2. Wi-Fi Automatic does both. ...and in response to the developer's response, which completely alleviated any regret I had about giving such a low score: You didn't address my issue, you just got upset. Since you forgot to be constructive in your response, I'll help you. Everyone downloads this app (and the many, many others like it) for one reason. You had one job. That job is to prevent wifi from draining the battery. Your app does not do that. If it does do #2 above, you should've put that in your response. I would've then started using your app again, changed my rating, and felt pretty stupid frankly. None of that happened. My 1 star rating is to help guide other app users since there are many apps like this. My constructive criticism was to explain my review and provide specific notes. I'm sorry this made you upset.

1 I switched screen off and switched on in a while. I steel see wifi enabled. It seems the app does not work 2 Strange options: if you never keep WiFi on during sleep, why it increases data usage? It supposed to be opposite. Add more detailed description for that item please. 3 At least UI is fine, so 2 stars
