Auto Hotspot

When I go outside the house, I usually bring my Android phone and other gadgets that need to connect to the Internet. What I usually do is I manually turn on the Wifi Hotspot on the Android phone so that my other gadgets will connect to the Internet using the Android phone’s LTE data connection.

When I arrive home, I turn off the Wifi Hotspot so that my gadgets will connect to the Home Wifi instead. It’s quite a manual, repetitive task that I’ve decided to solve by creating an Android app to do the process automatically for me.

Auto Hotspot is the Android app that solves the problem. The app automatically turns on/off that Android mobile phone’s Wifi Hotspot setting depending on whether the phone is outside or inside a Beacon region.

APN+ Android App

APN+ is a tool that works with APNDroid to allow an Android smartphone user to automatically enable or disable the phone’s APN connection based on scheduled times. The user has the option to repeat the task daily to save on battery and unwanted data charges.
