4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected. December 7, 2012
I found another app before this one that took you to a separate screen and when you got there, it was only this big ugly button on a huge black screen with advertisements at the bottom - a poorly designed waste of UI real estate who's only purpose was to force you to view the ads - and when you were done, you had to back out of it again. It was just an ugly, clunky app for what little it did. WiFi On/Off Toggle switcher, on the other hand, sits in your carousel and when you press it, it just does its thing and tells you when it's done. No extra screens, no backing out, no ads, no time or finger gestures wasted. Simple and nearly perfect. My only complaint is the low-res icon. To be honest, it's a little ugly and low-tech looking on a tablet screen. Give it a nicer icon for my Kindle Fire 7" (2nd Gen) carousel and it'd be a 5 star app.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommend January 10, 2013

Recently purchase kindle fire hd 8.9" awesome device, however lacks some functional/utility apps. To turn off the wifi in the kindle hd, you have to go to the settings screen and use the turn off button which is time consuming. With the app you just tap the button to turn off/on, very simple.

This is more or less for Kindle Fire users:

I've tried the "other" wifi on/off app which - despite the nice graphic it has when used - ends up bringing you to a large full-screen black page with an on/off button, and then forces you to close the app to get rid of it. It also leaves a big icon in the carousel, which bugs me.

This new "WiFi On/Off Toggle switcher" is a bit better in the sense that it - instead of taking you away from the main "bookshelf" - only shows you a brief notification to tell you that your wifi has been switched On or Off. And as a great added bonus, it doesn't leave an annoying new huge icon in the carousel (I keep the app icon in the top row of my Favorites).

The things I DON'T like about this app won't keep me from using it, but it would be nice if the dev would fix them:

1) The ON/OFF notifications are nearly identical and therefor hard to tell apart when you're not paying attention or don't squint fast enough to read the small text in the small notification box. It would be so much better if the text was larger, colored, and BOLD: Green for WIFI ON, red for WIFI OFF, just as an example.

2) I agree with the first reviewer about the app icon: It's ugly and clunky and it could be a lot nicer. But then the app is free, so I won't complain much if it isn't changed. :P

So, that "other app" was a nice step forward for Fire users, but this one goes a step further and lets you just press the icon directly to toggle your wifi connection, which is the absolute best thing for us Fire users.

Thanks to the dev for providing this to us and for making it free!

NOTE: Be patient when pressing the icon: It can take a couple of seconds for your wifi to change states and for the status message to pop up.

4.0 out of 5 stars world's UGLIEST icon March 12, 2014

but it works great.
easy to install, easy to use, and for tablets (like the kindle fire) that do not have a dedicated
toggle or control bar on the main screen, it makes life a bit easier

4.0 out of 5 stars Low Res icon... great app. January 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
I have to agree with everyone else, this little gem works great. I had a short cut through my launcher but it still involved a couple of steps. Good work. Needs a hi res icon for kindle fire hd tablet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works fine
Works as advertised. Not sure how much time-savings over just going to the Settings/Wireless, but it was a free ap and the adverts are not annoying.
