WiFi inexplicably shutting down on an Adroid phone was a recent topic on our boomers and senior adult discussion group.
Dave brought up the subject two weeks ago on our WACI (Windows-Android-Computers-Internet) Monday session on Senior Planet (Colorado) from AARP.
I commented that I have the same problem in our house since we have a weak WiFi signal on the bedroom level. We live in a split level and the router is in the basement.
The bedroom level is where my home office is at and I spend considerable time there daily. I have a booster in the closet but it really doesn’t help.
Dave reported last Monday about a find he made on Google Play.
It’s an app named WiFi Automatic and he claims it has solved the problem.
I checked it out but have not installed it as of yet.
The description claims that one major benefit is saving battery consumption.
There are numerous options to shut down wireless when not using WiFi.
You can also program it to automatically turn WiFi on when entering a specific location.
You can check out WiFi Automatic at Google Play.
I am naturally a little skeptical since the app has one million plus downloads and 19 thousand reviews but a mediocre 4.3 star rating. I found an older app called WiFi Auto with fewer downloads but a higher rating. Am looking for feedback. If you have any experience with either please comment below.
