What's new in this version (2.6.6):
*** Crashes after updating? Uninstall / reinstall often helps.
Fixes for Android 4.1
New, improved Czech translation.
New Portugese translation.
Find, connect, manage WiFi networks. Improve connection quality with a graphical channel radar. Discover open networks around you.
Includes home screen widgets: one displays detailed connection info, another lets you switch among your favorite networks with a single tap, and yet another toggles WiFi Access Point.
New and improved:
• Better graphics, including a dark color theme;
• Assign your own descriptions and icons to individual WiFi networks - never forget what that "XYZ1234" network is;
• Switch among your favorite networks with a single tap by using the WiFi Network Switcher widget. It will even enable WiFi if needed.
• Automatic switching between fixed and dynamic (DHCP) IP addresses (Android Settings in 2.* can't do this);
Some features require that you purchase the $1.75 premium package, available right in the application through Google Checkout (safe, secure).
These features are: advanced per-network options (description, icon, IP address), the one-tap network widget, and two widget themes inspired by Android 4.0.
All the other - essential - features are free: the widget with detailed connection info (four sizes, two free themes), scanning and connecting to networks, the network list view, the network signal radar.
Orders are processed and saved by Google and can be reactivated after a phone reset / flash, or on a new phone.
About requested permissions:
"Change system settings" is needed to switch between fixed and dynamic IP addresses, if configured so.
"Prevent phone from sleeping" is needed so you can enable automatic scanning and discover open networks around you.
"Market billing service" is needed to make purchases.
Since version 2.5, supports per-network IP address and proxy server settings on Android 3.* / 4.*, included in the free version.

Not suitable for htc desire. Widget size is smaller than the htc widgets.
Battery drainer fo shizzle.
Easy to use. I love it. Motorola Droid
Ray, Really does what it says, I don't need to worry about toggeling back & forth!
Any chance of making a translucent or text only version of the widget please?
Works gr8 galaxy 3 but i wonder if it uses too muc battery... Better than other wifi apps.... Really helps in finding a good spot for best avalbility
Looks good. Won't refresh coonnection info, eg MAC address for bridged APs, when connection changes. Otherwise good app. Moto Droid 2.2
A must have indeed!
This app has an annoying way of enabling and disabling wi-fi on the EVO, never allowing to connect and draining the battery.
