(NEED TESTER) Keep Wifi Alive [Test 2] - Updated the idea
The idea just come out from my mind, so I need some tester for this app, if it works fine I'll open source for everyone. I'm not sure this will work ok, so I still need to test more to develop this app, please kindly leave your comments below.
Don't have much to say, please download it from here:
- Sideload the app to your phone
- Turn your phone's WIFI on
- Run the app, click the button
- Test and give me feedback
What can stop this app from working?
- Battery Saver (may be, not sure)
- Playing music/video from Zune
- Pause the current playing file (read the idea below to understand)
- What else? You tell me
Requirements: device with developer unlock to sideload is enough
Update 09-July-2012: Lots of bugs is confirmed and has been added to the TODO list
Idea for this app:
Ok, for all of you who interested in this app, I give you the idea.
Basically, if you use a lot radio and music apps, you can notice that if you stream the music online using WIFI, it will keep the WIFI alive even you lock the screen, you can try by turning off the data connection then use WIFI only.
From this idea, I write an app with Background Audio that try to stream the music from the mp3 file (from somewhere in the internet) over WIFI, the mp3 can be "blank" (no sound) and repeat playing the file
The important thing is, if you pause the streaming, after a few minutes (i don't know exactly), the OS will "kill" the Background Audio task, then it will turn off the WIFI again.
