For the most part this app works well. However, I have found the signal strength number to be unreliable. It seems the app only has 5 signal values: 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16. When there is no signal the signal value displays 99. I have found that even when signal strength is 1 that I still have 3+ bars of signal strength. I set the threshold to it's lowest value (1) which means the phone will go into airplane mode even when I have 3 bars of signal strength. I wish there was a wider range of signal values that more accurately represented the actual signal strength.
would be better if I could change the duration of time in flight mode... ...to zero minutes/1 second... I use this app to reset my phone signal when it gets too weak... and its a little annoying having to wait a whole minute for my phone to get signal back... But would like to add that this is a/an one of a kind great app!
Exactly what I've been looking for This app saves me so much battery life, it works perfectly for me. No more drain from bad cell service when I'm in my basement or roaming. Haven't had any issues. So glad I found this.
Useful app for when you are going in and out of spotty signal. May need to reduce threshold to avoid entering airplane mode prematurely. As others have suggested, an objective scale for thresholding would be nice.
I love it!! Exactly what I was looking for, plus extras! Obviously well thought out!!I go on mountain drives regularly, where signal is down more than up, including stops where my phone is unplugged.This will preserve my battery during all that.I already had my phone rooted.Love that it can go to Airplane Mode without affecting Bluetooth since I use that for a Pebble smartwatch and playing music on my car stereo.All the tweaks for signal strength,signal type,schedule,notifications,ignoring threshold during phone call or if charging, allowing manual Airplane mode!
Great app However, I see some room for improvement. First - please let change the notification sound when the app switches the flight mode as it's using current message sound which is confusing. Other thing is the notification that you can only turn off together with status bar icon - why there are no separate options for them? These are obviously only small issues and the app works perfectly. Thank you for your effort.
