Hello everyone!

I was searching for a connectivity (3G/Wifi) manager that will allow to save some juice without sacrificing my habits.
I couldn't find something that fulfilled exactly my needs so as a curious IT engineer I decided to develop my first android application.

CleverConnectivity is an application that helps you to manage your data and wifi connection in order to save battery.


How does CleverConnectivity work?

This application will automatically turn on and off connectivity (data/wifi/sync) while screen is OFF.
For example if the user chooses below configuration:
Time On: 2min
Time On Next Check: 1min
Time Off: 10m
Usage check Interval: 3s
Once the screen is OFF, CleverConnectivity will keep connectivity alive for 2min. Then it will check if data is used during a period of 3s.
If data is used, connectivity will be kept for 1 minute (Time On Next Check).
If data is NOT used, connectivity will be desactivated for 10min. After this, the connectivity will be re-activated and Time On will kick in.
Once screen is ON, connectivity will be automatically re-enabled.

Details of features:
- Configuration of ON-OFF cycle (Time On, Time Off, Usage Interval Period)
- Disable/Enable connectivity (Wifi/Data/Sync)
- Enable/disable management of Data/Wifi/Sync connectivity
- Sleep Hours: During these hours, all connectivity will desactivated one screen is OFF
- Possibility to turn off bluetooth during sleep hours
- Auto Wifi-Off: Wifi will be disabled after after a defined period if screen is OFF and no known networks are available
- Auto Wifi-On: Wifi will be enabled once a known network is availaible
- Check Wifi internet connection: Will check if the wifi is able to connect to the internet before connecting to it
- Possibility to read logs generated by the app
- Possibility to deactivate the app while the phone is plugged. The ON-OFF cycle will resume once the phone is unplugged.
- "Screen On Connectivity Delay" which delays the moment where connectivites are re-enabled when screen is turned on
- Possibility to manage connectivity per app
- Shortcut can be created to enable/disable CConnectivity
- Possibility to turn on/off permanent notification
- Switch 2G/3G (for cyanogenmod based roms only)

How does this CleverConnectivity is different from its concurrents:

- You can turn on/off connectivity (wifi/data/sync) everywhere in the system (settings, toggles on notification bar...) and will be taken into consideration by CleverConnectivity
- CleverConnectivity can check data usage before disable it. Therefore your downloads/streaming won't be stopped
- It's very lightweight and efficient. You just have to install it and configure it and then forget it. It will do it work silently and efficiently.
- It's free! It contains all features of the paid version. The only difference is the presence of ads. If you want to support me, then you can buy the no ads version.

Free Version (contains all features)

Paid version - No Ads (same features as free version, it's only if you want to support)

Giving this a try to see if it gets even more life out of my nexus 4. Thanks and good work! I'll drop a review on the Play Store after some evaluation time.

I thought this is the app that I've been looking for.
I'll try your app, and I'll buy the paid version to support you if this app exactly the same what I searching for.:thumbup:

Could this be the solution to the Achilles' heel of Wi-Fi calling? Going out of hotspot range drops the call... would this app allow a soft handover to 3G? The carriers will LOVE you...

Can one just use the connectivity timer On/Off settings (for turning data and wifi off during the night) and ignore all the other settings? Not checking them? If so, what would one put in the "time on", "time off" and "usage check interval" fields? Thanks

I dunno who wrote the description on the XDA front page, but from what I see the functionality of this app is not exactly what's indicated there imho.


Ask any smartphone or tablet user how would their life be without Internet access, and the answer would certainly not be a happy one in most cases. We use these devices to stay connected to the rest of the world using WiFi wherever and cellular data. However, switching between these two can become a hassle, especially if you are frequently moving around between WiFi coverage areas and areas where you must switch to your data connection. Frustrated with this issue, XDA Forum Member gyagapen decided to build his first Android app to address this problem, and shared the fruit of his labor with us in form of CleverConnectivity.

The app intelligently manages switching between both your WiFi and 3G data connections as you move about, but that’s not all. The killer feature of the app is that it also makes sure your ongoing downloads and media streams aren’t interrupted due to the switching! And guess what? This is only the start of the list of features boasted by the app.

The app is available as both a fully functional but ad-supported free version, and an ad-free paid version. You can find more details, the complete feature list, and the Play Store links in the forum thread.
