Default [APP][2.1+][FREE] Proxy Settings - Android's proxy settings manager utility tool

I would like to introduce my OSS project:

Proxy Settings


It's a tool that provides an easier way to access and the modificate the proxy configuration into Android device when you are connected to any Wi-Fi (at the moment setting the proxy on Mobile network is not supported).

The application is developed in two different main branches, accordingly to Android's versions different support and implementation of the proxy support.
  • 1.x & 2.x devices: single proxy support, using an hidden activity (ProxySelector) available in the most number of ROMs.
  • 3.x & 4.x devices: per Wi-Fi access point proxy support

WARNING: Please remember that configuring the proxy doesn't mean that all your applications will automatically start to using these settings! This is due to a not easy understandable API for developers.

ROOT is not required for Proxy Settings to work correctly on any Android device that support the standard Android WifiManager API. This thanks to the reflection work made by Android Proxy Library (APL) that provides to the developers an easy way to access and use the proxy settings in every Android application, without requiring ROOT privileges.

If you are interested in a deeper analysis on the proxy issues on Android devices, you can find a detailed explanation of the problem and leave your feedbacks/comments on the official website: http://shouldit.be/category/android-proxy-project or on the Github page of the project.
