Description:
Smart WiFi Toggler is an application designed to control your phone's WiFi using location based rules. Its aim is to conserve battery and minimize data charges by turning WiFi off when not connected to a network, and turning it on when a known hotspot is present. It constantly learns where your hotspots are located to make its decisions.
It's a very useful application if you frequently forget to turn WiFi off when leaving a hotspot, or if you want to automatically switch from mobile data to WiFi to conserve battery whenever you're back into a hotspot.

Hope you enjoy using Smart WiFi Toggler as much as I enjoyed building it!

*** I am happy to add support for more languages. If you are willing to help with the translation, please drop me an email. Thanks. ***


Features:
- Automatically learns your WiFi hotspot locations.
- Turns WiFi off when disconnected from WiFi network.
- Automatically turns WiFi on when near a known hotspot.
- Uses your network location. No GPS battery drain.
- Provides the ability to control "auto-connect" behavior for each hotspot.
- Ability to lock WiFi to a disabled state.
- Warning notification and auto-locking WiFi when a hotspot is down.
- History and logging, in addition to a view of what is going on under the hood.

Great idea!

If I understood correctly from the screenshots, the app will shut down wifi when the connection is lost. How does it know when the device is back to hotspot area? By using gps locations?

GPS is not used. It uses your network location. It's not 100% accurate, but the aim was to use as little battery as possible. GPS would not have fit that criteria.

Actually that's what I wanted to hear because, as you say, gps would spoil the idea of battery saving.

Now I really have to try this!

Cool app bro. You finally released it to the public. I will definitely check it out. You guys should probably try it. There is very hard work in it. Keep up the good work.

Finally got it working. It was my fault. :P

Now it's crashing on me when I select the start button. On an evo 3d running cm9.

Well that's no good. Please send me your logcat trace. I'll try to find out why that's happening.

Edit: I just saw the crash report. Do you have a CDMA phone? If so, it won't work. Currently, it only works on GSM. I should have mentioned that, sorry.
