- Screen widget to enable/disable data connection
- Fast connection/disconnection
- There's a default button that performs the same
APNdroid allows you to enable/disable the Internet connection 3G/EDGE/GPRS
Why would you like to do that? There are two compelling reasons: first, you will save money for the data plan, and second, you will save battery-life. We all have some limits in our data plan, either by fares or data limit. This way you control the constant flush of data. What's more, the data connection is what drains more battery. So, disabling it when you don't need it is the best way to enlarge your battery life. APNdroid allows you to do both just with one click.
The app is good by itself because of this. But what improves its performance is its screen widget (I cannot live without it!). As it was a traffic light, it will remain red while you are disconnected and green when you are connected. That easy. If you want to stop the data connection from your mobile phone, click on it.
Some users find this app useless since the most of the Android devices have by default a button to enable/disable data connection. From our point of view, the added value of APNdroid is its screen widget and, in addition, that it connects and disconnects faster than the default app.
This is the free version with ads. Actually you will see the ads if you open the app from the app drawer. But there's no need to do that, if you use the screen widget to connect/disconnect. Anyway, the paid version is worth (£1.49) because by removing ads it cuts the additional traffic that they generates.
APNdroid has been developed by Martin Adameks, an individual developer who has just launched a few apps on the market, but who's being quite successful, especially thanks to APNdroid.
APNdroid makes our life easier. It really does. It could included thousands of more things, of course. But it does just what it says, and it does it well. For us, it's a Must-Have.
Please note, that in order to keep the free version, it is sponsored by ads in main application. If you don't feel like using ad-based application, feel free to install paid version of Apndroid which is as cheap as cup of coffee.
