Coming soon: WiFi Manager 2.0

I’ve spent some time working on WiFi Manager recently, and there are lots of exciting new features and improvements. So much so, in fact, that I’ve decided to call it version 2.0.

Finally, as often requested – The ability to switch between dynamically assigned and static IP addresses. The address setting is tied to a particular network and is automatically activated when you connect using my program. No more digging through Android’s settings screens to set IP address options.

Finally, as often requested – Dark interface setting.

Finally, as often requested – The one-tap WiFi Network Switcher widget can not activate WiFi if it’s disabled.

New – Assign your own icon to a network, to better rememeber which is which. The icon set includes “Home”, “Work”, “Family”, “Other” and “Bad”. The ability to assign descriptions (like “My home network”) is still there, but with this, it’s even more useful.

New – A better application icon.

Some screenshots:

The “premium” features (one-tap network switcher, static/dynamic IP address switching, icon assignment) will be a paid option, available through Google’s new In-App Billing for Android (once that goes live, which should be pretty soon now).

What this means is that there won’t be separate Lite and Pro versions, just one application, as there is now. You will be able to initiate the purchase to activate premium features from within the application, which will take you to Google Checkout to complete the process.

    Hello, I‘m a Chinese using your Wifi Manager app, and I want to use your full version app(paid version). But in China, I found no way to purchase your app through the Google Market, ’cause the Google Checkout function still does not support in China now. So, can u tell me how can I use your full version app?

      The app only supports Google’s Android in-app billing. If it’s not available in your country, sorry.

      Pretty soon after Google launches In-App Billing – I expect this to be any time now, as Market application update has already been rolled out, but no news from Google on this so far.

      It should be – my code does not use any internal / unsupported / undocumented features of Android.
