Allow me please to share with you a tool I created to notify the user of the internet status change, via notification ( with speech )
The app name is MISS. My Internet StatuS. And it is a simple process that notifies you when you cannot connect to the Internet using a notification with a custom A.I. Speech. The notification can be customized sound/vibration & also you can customize the performance of the process.
I always wanted this simple functionality but I never found it natively in any ROM that I know, and the apps on the market uses HTTP or DNS request which fails some times due to caching. MISS using a low level Linux (since it is android : ) ) ping request that never gives a false negative or positive 99.9% of the times.
Check it out and let me know what you think:
