WiFi Auto Toggle is designed to reduce your phone's battery usage by cutting off power to your WiFi when you're not around your frequent WiFi hotspots or home networks and re-enabling it when you return.

Instead of using a persistent service that steadily drains your phone's resources, WiFi Auto Toggle launches a quickly self-destructing service only when you fully unlock your screen. Once the service is launched, it runs through a complex algorithm to determine which, if any, of three possible options to use in obtaining your location. As GPS is the most power-consuming of these options, a great many conditions must be satisfied before the service attempts to use it. In short, WiFi Auto Toggle does everything in its power to not burn your power.

Imagine: You're flying out to see your relatives, and you know they'll have WiFi there. Add the destination address to this app, and WiFi will automatically be disabled for the trip and re-enabled as you drive up to the house.

For daily use, add your home and your favorite local hotspots, and leave the toggling to WiFi Auto Toggle. As your needs and list of hotspots change, feel free to enable or disable each location independently without needing to delete and re-add locations.

We strive to offer the most efficient and effective solution to WiFi drain with WiFi Auto Toggle. Please email us with any questions, comments, bugs, or suggestions.

    Doesn't turn off Wifi automatically unless you unlock the phone. Whats the point of it then? I want a refund.

    Enables wifi but does not turn it off until phone is unlocked. Pretty much useless
