    Auto toggles WiFi depending on your location. I rarely go anywhere or use WiFi except in my house, and I would like an app that toggles WiFi on when I'm in the house and toggles when I leave...maybe allows you to add several locations (like airports etc) as well to toggle it on.

    Surely it could be done...if they have the ringtone profile based on your location, and the to do list that can remind you when you're near somewhere...

    There is something out there already. Look at Y5 - Battery Saver. It remembers the locations you connect to and disables the wifi if you aren't around.

    Hope that helps.

    Isn't that what Locale does? I haven't really tried it, but that's what it does from my understanding.

    I thought locale was the one that changed your ringtone profile based on where you were...like office it changes to vibrate, movie it silences it, etc

    It can do that as well, I think, but I think it can also turn on/off Wifi based on your location.

    Y5 seems to work...see if it conflicts with the toggle switch widget next time I leave the house...

    I would think a WiFi on/off widget would be better. Using a program like that would mean you have to leave the GPS on at all times. I don't have tons of stuff on my home screen(s) so I have plenty of room for the factory power bar widget.

    I'm just thinking that the battery usage an app would use using the GPS all the time wouldn't be worth the less than 2 seconds to toggle WiFi on when you need it.

    To each their own though!

    Yeah, true. There is one built in I think. At least I don't remember downloading it lol. It has toggles for all the major crap.

    Installed Y5 seems to have lost my Hidden SSID connection. Anyone else have this problem?
