Description:

This app aims to reduce the battery usage by toggling Wi-Fi depending on the available networks. WifiBook periodically checks the networks in range and switches Wi-Fi off if there are no familiar networks available or keeps it on if a familiar network is recognized.

Features:

  • Single button to toggle the service on and off
  • Automatically launch after boot
  • Configurable scanning interval

Opinion:

The app successfully detects when I’m leaving and reentering the range of my familiar Wi-Fi networks and acts accordingly. However, after some time it stopped working (the notification vanished) and had to be restarted manually.
