Inetify is an ad-free Open Source tool providing two features related to Wifi networks:

* Give a notification if a Wifi network does not provide internet access

This can be useful if you have set up your phone to automatically connect to a Wifi network that requires authentication on a web page (a "captive portal").
Should you forget to authenticate, Inetify notifies you that there is no internet access.

It is also possible to manually test internet access and to ignore certain Wifi networks for the automatic check.

* Automatically activate Wifi when near a Wifi network and deactivate it otherwise (experimental)

This can help to save battery by deactivating Wifi when it is not needed, and avoid using mobile data while Wifi could be used instead.

This feature is experimental: Depending on the accuracy of localization, it may be unreliable. Inetify can use GPS, but this uses considerably more battery than network based locations, which can be very inaccurate.

The Wifi locations Inetify should look out for can be added to a list and viewed on a map.

Inetify runs in the background and tries to be very conservative on battery usage.

Recently changed in this version

- Fixed behaviour when Wifi is roaming (connection handover to a neighbouring Wifi network with overlapping coverage)
- Improved and simplified logic for location based functionality, it should use less battery now when using GPS and might actually help now to reduce battery consumption caused by Wifi being enabled while not needed. But it is still only experimental.

Once again thanks for the feedback!

    However it could do with an on off widget so that when you switch off wifi it stays off.
