About this app

This simple app can help you increase the standby time of your device: WiFi Automatic automatically disable your WiFi radio when you don't need it and thereby lowers the battery consumption.

You can also specify to automatically turn on WiFi again, if you turn on your device or when you enter a specified location (requires a cell radio and therefore does not work on WiFi-only tablets!). Also, the app can regularly scan for available networks to connect to and re-disable WiFi if no suitable network is found. This way, you are always connected to your WiFi network when using the device.

WiFi Automatic is open source: https://github.com/j4velin/WiFi-Automatic

A WiFi connection generally uses less power than a mobile data connection, so on your phone, it makes sense to keep the WiFi radio active, whenever a WiFi network is in range

Works without gps! Auto off when out of range and auto on when charging initiated and staying on without charger until out of range again is how I set it up. Perfect for leaving home, later returning, and setting phone on wireless charger like we do. So nice to find an auto wifi control app that doesn't rely on leaving gps on all the time wasting batt you're trying to save.

The one feature that I really wanted, doesn't work. The option to turn WiFi on in 5, 15, 30... minutes just turns WiFi in 20 seconds every time! I tried to report the bug, bug I got an email back telling me to put in on the Bug Tracker page, which is impossible to do because this WiFi Automatic app is not even an option on that page. So, I have to once again contact the Dev to tell him to fix the bug on his Bug Tracker page, so that I can tel him to fix the bug in his WiFi app. 8-)

So far I've had 0 issues using this app. No requirements for unnecessary permissions, as far as I'm aware. My phone tells me that it has 0 system permissions yet the app still works as intended. I would pay for some additional features such as automatic network prioritization based on signal strength and/or user preference. Currently, the app works great.
