In-App Wifi Toggle for Android
Do you find it annoying when you need to activate wifi on your Android device but have to come out of the app that you’re in to do so?

There’s no actual launcher icon or widget so no extra clutter in your app drawer. Instead, HaggleLad has linked the toggle to two buttons – or three actions.

When toggling, a toast message is displayed stating whether the wifi connection was enabled or disabled.
In-App Wifi Toggle is available for free in the Market. For more information, check out the application thread.
