Great app, do you think it could be configured to be recuring? For example I don't really use my wifi during work. The company won't allow it. So I don't need it on. If I could schedule M-F 8am-4pm, it would be perfect.
Thanks

I downloaded the trial this morning and am giving it an eval.

As requested above, I would like not only recurring capability (i.e. I use Wifi only at home and never at work) but also scheduling capability (i.e. on weekends, I would like wifi on all day, since I only work M - F).

So, tick boxes for the days of the week (M T W T F S S) and a start and stop time, like you have now.

Any other reason that I might have where I don't have wifi on (while travelling on an airplane) are so rare [for me] that I can simply switch off, or switch on, wifi connections manually. I would like this application to handle daily route, and I will handle the exceptions.

The ability to disable the scheduling without losing the settings might be nice too (although I suppose one could click off the connection type), and multiple schedules could be useful to some too.

I'll give this a whirl, too.

It'd be great if it handled bluetooth, too. That's the radio I switch on and off most frequently (and the reason I bake in the Manage Connections icon on all my theme homescreens).

A couple of other notes to add; just feedback, negativity isn't intended.

The application does not autostart and rebooting the phone seems to cause the app to lose it's settings if the scheduled network event had not occurred yet.

I like the concept of the application. If it could handle daily schedules, multiple configurations (e.g. one for weekday, one for weekends), autostart on bootup and retain configuration, I think you'd have a winner.

I purchased the application as is, FWIW, but the suggested added features would make it more useful to me.
