Keep your Wi-Fi Connection on Device Sleep
If you get frustrated trying to keep your screen on in order to keep your Wi-Fi connection alive, you can finally relax as XDA forum member shantzg001 has developed an app for that.
Wi-Fi Keep Alive lets you control whether Wi-Fi is disconnected or not whenever the screen turns off by setting your desired Wi-Fi sleep policy.
- Default – this means that wi-fi will turn off whenever the screen goes off.
- Wi-Fi On on sleep if plugged – this means that if your phone is plugged into a USD slot or wall charger, then wi-fi will not turn off even when the screen goes off.
- Wi-Fi Never goes off – this means that your wi-fi will no shut down whenever the screen turns off, even if you are not plugged into USB/charger.
What’s more, shantzg001 has also coded an accompanying widget for the app, so rather than launching the app each time, you can toggle through the three settings on your home screen.
- Dark Widget icon – Default setting
- Purple Widget icon – Wi-Fi On on sleep if plugged
- Green Widget icon – Wi-Fi Never goes off
Wi-Fi Keep Alive is available to download for free in the Market.

While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
