Hello!

I have programmed an app for my own usage that I want to share.
It's simply a sticky notification showing wifi state (including SSID and other information if connected) and also if clicked, it changes wifi state.

Hope you find it useful!

You can install it from the Amazon Appstore or downloading the attached apk.

Changelog:
Version 2: Now shows an icon in status bar when wifi is on (connected or not)
Some more info.
Version 3: Auto update (on/off and time interval configurable), icon when wifi on configurable, text color and info in notification configurable, bugfixes.

I like it, it does exactly what it says it does. The only thing I could have wished that it did was have some type of way to enter the wifi settings menu when clicked instead of disabling wifi. I haven't found a good shortcut for this yet, as I use two different APs in my house (depending on which area of the house) and Android always connects to the last used one rather then the strongest connection, so I always have to go through and change it manually.

Otherwise, anyone looking for a quick way to check your AP and enable/disable wifi without an extra widget, this is definitely a cool, simple and lightweight app to do so.

It's good to know you find it useful.

About accessing wifi settings quickly, you can create a direct shortcut if you use ADW launcher or LaucherPro (I don't know if other launchers have this feature); you have to create a shortcut and then select Activities. In the list that will show up, you can select the settings app and inside it, wifi settings.

It does not show any icon in the notification bar.

Yes I did, however a few things..

I feel the notification bar should also display Connection Speed, Signal Strength in DB with the option to go to connection settings..

Thanks..

i definitely agree. there aren't really any good widgets that show this information, and it is quite useful, in addition to the AP name. if this could be added, it would be near perfect.

Thanks for the feedback.

I agree, that info may be useful.
I'll try to show it in the notification.

You can uninstall it like any other application. It should appear in the list of installed programs.
Anyway I don't understand your problem. Do you receive any errors? This application has nothing to do with your network connection... it only shows wifi state and changes its state but doesn't touch anything else.

Sorry for the lack of news.

I have modified it a little bit.
Now it shows an icon when wifi is on (connected or not) and shows more info.
To show info like network speed I need to make it update every X seconds.
I don't like this very much because that way it lost the simplicity.

Anyway I'm trying to make it configurable so you can set it the way you like (Just starting with Android programming )

This is the actual version (no config nor auto update): http://db.tt/dX8m7ao
