DESCRIPTION

The Wifi consumes a lot of battery, this is a really, and the main consumption occurs while the system is looking for a network to connect (which happens when we are not connected to a wifi network).

This app attempts to minimize the battery consumption, and does so in a very simple way: turning off the wifi, which translates into a real battery saver.

So, when it detects that the device has been disconnected from a wireless network, and after waiting a reasonable time (configurable), the hardware wifi going to off.

A few minutes later (configurable), the wifi hardware is reactivated and system scans for some seconds (configurable) searching for available networks.

If it hasn't been possible to establish a wifi connection, the hardware back off again and, therefore, to stop consuming resources.

Furthermore, to increase the battery saving, the application increases the delay between two consecutive wifi activations in each attempt (to a configurable limit).

The application also allows you to add notifications in the status bar, view the history of connections (PRO version), auto disable while airplane mode active, etc.

CONFIGURABLE TIMES

First deactivation time: After a wifi connection was lost, or after device boot, this is the time that system wait before start managing the wifi hardware.

Deactivation time: When the wifi hardware is disabled, this is the time that app waits before activate the wifi again. Increase this time to save battery, but note that system can't establish a wifi connection during this time, even if a wifi network in the range.

Deactivation increase time: This is the time that is added to the deactivation time each time that app deactivate the wifi, in order to save battery.

Max deactivation time: This is the maximum deactivation time. The system cannot increase the wifi deactivation time over this value (in each deactivation).

Activation time: This is the time that wifi remains activated in each check. Decrease this time to save battery.

I think this app could be even more useful if it was possible to combine wifi search with gps location. So the app could use more energy searching for wifi when phone is near a location previously registered as having wifi connection available, like when I'm near my home. Please consider to implement a configurable feature like this.
