About this app

Easily wake up computers from your phone/tablet!

* For this app to work, you need to make sure that your computer and network is set up for and supports Wake On Lan / WOL *

Automate waking up your computers by sending an intent broadcast from apps such as Llama and Tasker!
In the latest version there is now support for Tasker plugins to make it even easier to automatically wake devices.
Instructions on how to do this are available in the latest version of the app under the help section.

Quick Feature List
* Groups
* Network Search (Find devices on your network and add them to your list. No more finding out MAC addresses etc!)
* One touch wakeup widget for both devices and groups (A widget with online status is coming soon)
* Tasker plugin
* Intent Broadcast support (See instructions inside app help section for details on this)
* CSV Import/Export - So you can share your list of devices easily!
* Material Design (Taking suggestions on this!)
* Auto-Refreshing Device Online Status (Using both ports and ping)
* Supports Wake On Lan(WoL) and Wake On Wan(WoW)
* SecureOn

For WoW, just set the broadcast address to be the remote IP address of the device. This may require some extra setup on the remote network to make sure that the wakeup packets actually arrive on the remote device.

If you're trying to wake up a device that is connected via WiFi it may not work, there's not many WiFi cards that support the WOL standard. WOL works best via an ethernet connection. Some devices such as laptops may not support WOL very well or at all. Some might only work when they are in sleep mode, and others might allow you to turn it on when it is powered off.

Permission Details
Photos/Media/Files/USB Storage - This is used for reading/writing CSV files to your internal storage so that you can copy your list of devices to other devices easily.

Network/WiFi - This is so that the app can actually send the magic packets to wake up your devices. It is also used in the network search screen and for pinging devices to see if they are online.

Edit 3: widget is working and after turning notifications on for app it gives feedback when clicking. Great app and good support. Edit 2: the widget is working, no feedback message or status update on the icon(just blue). Old: Widget stop working a few days or weeks ago, if they fix its my fav app for WOL

For the feedback message on widgets, they're now hidden by the system if you turn notifications for the app off. Please check the settings in the app and make sure "widget update interval" is not set to off. You can also try recreating the widgets incase something broke with them.

I've been using this lovely app for a while, I love the tasker integration. Like one person already said, maybe a confirmation button before actually sending a WOL Magic packet will help a lot. Many thanks for your hard work 😁

What's new

~ Fixes device adding (-1 error)
- This was a failed database creation for fresh installs of the app
- If you still have issues after this update, please reinstall or "Clear Data" for the app and it should start working again. Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience.

- Updates the "Shortcut" widget to the latest android SDKs
- These new shortcut widgets double up the app icons, I can't change this as it's part of the new android system and I have no control over it
