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?

In-App Wifi Toggle is available for free in the Market. For more information, check out the application thread.

I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
