find my hotspot


Helps you find a single wifi hotspot.
Most other apps show ALL open wifi networks but sometimes you might want to FIND ONLY ONE.
For example if you lost another phone or computer and you had the hotspot on.

The find my phone apps might just show your phone on a map, but that's not good enought if you live in a city with many high rise buildings! This app will notify you once it detects your unique wifi hotspot... so you can know with some accuracy which floor in a building it was.

This app is good for:
While walking and searching to your WiFi network.
Stop always looking at your phone to see what networks are available.
The Android built in notification system for WiFi Hotspots gives no vibration, sound or LED indication.

Just put in the name of the network you want to find, press "scan" and relax.

The app will automatically turn the WiFi on for you, scan and notify you when your WiFi Hotspots is found.

Simple an easy!

You can connect once the network is found
You can choose whether to be notified with audio or silent vibration
Set up the time interval between each scan (preserves the battery if long times)
Once found you will see the Signal strength and SSID name of the network in your notification bar with direct link to the WiFi settings page (press the notification message).

For example if you loose another device but know you left the personal hotspot on. You would want to get an alert only when that wifi network was found.

Ideal way to use this application is to open the application, start the scan and exit the application (back button not "logout" as it will stop the service) when the hotspot is found it will show the notification and once clicked on the notification it will open the network settings screen.

Service will be running in the background until the user opens the application and click on "stop scan" or "logout" network name must be exactly same (not case sensitive though).

By default vibration is not checked in the settings and when a user gets a notification and user has not clicked on it or cleared it, new notifications will not create a sound or vibration

That means older notifications must be cleared first, the time next to the notification will be the latest one but it wont make a sound that means new notifications will silently replace the older ones.

Secondly the scan interval by default is 5 minutes but in order to change the time interval the scan must be first "stopped" and then re started.

That means if the service is already running and the user changes the time interval from just 10 secs, it will make no change the service must be stopped first but vibration and ringtone can be changed even when the service is running (not need to stop and re start) changes will take affect from next notification.
