    Looking for an App to switch to WiFi when I get homehome

    I am looking for an App that will switch from Mobile Data to Wifi when it detects a pre-configured wifi.

    So I can save my Mobile Data.

    If you leave wifi on while you are out and about it should reassociate with the network when it becomes available. The only problem is that it will continue to search for wifi while you are about. You could use tasker to turn wifi on when you are within a certain amount of feet from home but then it would be constantly checking your location so its easier just to leave wifi on.

    but wouldn't leaving the Wifi on and constantly scanning be a drain on the battery?

    I would rather just manually switch it and save battery.

    That's about your only option. You either leave gps on and use a location based app to turn it on and off, leave wifi on, or do it manually.

    I believe Y5 Battery Saver is exactly what you are looking for.

    But that still uses Wifi or GPS to locate... similar to others

    I keep Wifi on, but turn off the notifications for when it finds new networks within range. Never had any issues with Wifi using up any measurable amount of battery life.

    I keep my wifi on all the time and never have any problems. Honestly that's the easiest way to go about this.

    Learn to use tasker but you could set up a location based command and it will execute it when you get there.

    Set location to your home and turn wifi on...etc.
