It was almost perfect. But its no longer working in Android 5 Lollipop. Old review: Works great on Nexus 5. Does exactly what it is supposed to. Nice customisation features for appearance. And well designed at under 100 KB. Only flaw is as previously commented: icon label does not line up. @Jessica and others - it's not an app. Look for it among your widgets.
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]
Wait a second: Let me make sure I understand: WHAT EXACTLY ARE YOU TOGGLING, CLOWN? Because you toggling nothing! Verdict: ONE STAR. (You only light up blue when I manually toggle by going into settings.) Also, the widget won't appear in the drawer until after phone restart.
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.

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.
Turn on the portable WiFi hotspot feature with a single touch.
