Doesnt work. LG V20 T-Mobile. I added widget to home screen, checked the settings in the widget and tried it. When I tapped the icon the bars went from all gray to the bottom sphere blue but nothing happened as far as turning on the hotspot. I tried tapping it again, waiting, no change. Tried a few more times to see if tapping a few times in succession did anything - no change. Uninstalling it.
Works well. Has some nice extra features Apart from doing it's basic job of switching your wifi hotspot on and off with a single tap extremely well, this widget has some nice extra features. 2-stage highlight: The circle switches on and off immediately to acknowledge the tap and the 3 arcs switch on and off when wifi has successfully been activated or deactivated. Restore wifi state: The widget resets your wifi state to what it was before you switched the hotspot on. Error: The circle goes red if there's an error.
Won't work after 4.4.2 update This app used to work fine until I updated my phone a few weeks ago. Now it will not turn the phone's hot spot on. It says "hotspot activated" and the widget turns blue for a second, then it turns off all the
Time Saving Widget! It would rate a five if the icon would line up properly and the icon should be like all my other icons. It sure saves alot of clicks. I use several times a day and it has never crashed. Thanks for a great time saving widget!
Bravo! Finally I find a widget that turns wi-fi back on after leaving the hotspot. I wanted an easy way for my wife to use her tablet from her phone's hotspot feature, but searching the app store took hours before finding a toggle that would return her phone's wi-fi state without having to go and turn it back on when she was done using the hotspot. It's so useful that I installed it on my phone too for using my tablet. *[Note: My phone uses Android 5.0 Lollipop which breaks widget so I dropped a star until fixed]
Perfect. What I want. Dispite screenshots ... you can optionally disable the label, and see only the logo. AP off = grey. AP on = blue. With transition states. Just sad the logo is so close and confusable with classic Wifi. I'd have prefered a ... more explanatory logo, not so similar to ... wifi client. But I am tired of searching in Play, I keep this widget. The Android AP logo is nice: dot in the middle, with waves on both sides.
Turn on the portable WiFi hotspot feature with a single touch.
