inetify for Android Publisher's description
There is a rip-off of Inetify on the Android Market, called "Wireless Detector Free"
There is a rip-off of Inetify on the Android Market, called "Wireless Detector Free". It was created from unfinished development code and tampered with, and is not working properly. Ads were added and also additional permissions, so it might even be possible that it is some sort of malware.
The original Inetify is ad-free and Open Source.
Inetify is an Android tool providing two features related to Wifi networks:
.Give a notification if a Wifi network does not provide internet access
This can be useful if you have set up your phone to automatically connect to a Wifi network that requires authentication on a web page (a "captive portal"). Should you forget to authenticate, Inetify notifies you that there is no internet access.
It is also possible to manually test internet access and to ignore certain Wifi networks for the automatic check.
.Automatically activate Wifi when near a Wifi network and deactivate it otherwise (experimental)
This can help to save battery by deactivating Wifi when it is not needed, and avoid using mobile data while Wifi could be used instead.
This feature is experimental: Depending on the accuracy of localization, it may be unreliable. Inetify can use GPS, but this uses considerably more battery than network based locations, which can be very inaccurate.
The Wifi locations Inetify should look out for can be added to a list and viewed on a map.
Inetify runs in the background and tries to be very conservative on battery usage.
Please note, that the reliability of finding Wifi locations depends on the accuracy of location evaluation. Inetify can use GPS, but this uses considerably more energy than network based locations, which are relatively inaccurate.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
