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

Proxy Settings provides a set of tools to ease the access and the modification of proxy server configuration into your 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. If you are interested in a deeper analysis of this issue, 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.

The project offers also an open source module called Android Proxy Library (APL) that provides to the developers an easy way to access and use the proxy settings in every Android application. So, if you want the Proxy support in your favourite applications, start request this feature to their developers!
