    Useful wi-fi app

    I've been using this for a week
    https://market.android.com/details?i...e=related_apps

    and found it very useful.
    I'm not using it as a battery saver as I normally have wi-fi turned off during the day but it just autoenables it when I'm at home which saves me having to remember and have a special "home profile" selector icon on my home page.

    (I need wi-fi at home so I can ftp into my sdcard - very useful for developing apps)

    Not earth shattering but a simple useful app.

    Will it let me set one icon to launch an app (my own speedlimit one) and switch on bluetooth at the same time?

    I haven't reached the stage of saying I know what I'm doing yet but at least I've managed to get it to auto turn on bluetooth and launch my speed limit app when I plug it in to the car adapter which saves a bit of faffing around

    Also, don't need the the wif-fi app as Tasker can handle that
