    Is it ok for me to reuse this icon with slight modifications (for tts widget)? Please let me know. Thanks.

    Could you please share with us whether you are using driver APIs directly to turn On/Off the radio or are you using wpa_supplicant through connectivity manager?

    how does the settings button work? I can’t seem to click it. I’m sure it’s simple and just something I don’t get.

    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    Hello Sean
    It’s opens Settings window for wifi, where you can connect to wifi spots and etc.

    Same issue – Neither the Free nor the Donate version appear on the Droid. It shows up as “installed” under Application Settings, but the icon doesn’t appear anywhere, so perhaps it has a problem with Android 2 ? What’s up, would love to use it!

    How do you know if you are using the wifi or 3g? Does this turn off the 3g (say if I were in another country and didn’t want to use the 3g network rates…just free wifi)?

    I tried to remove the Widget WiFi OnOff by moving it to the Trash icon on the bottom of the desktop, but it would not accept it. I then went into the Settings>Applications>Manage applications, chose WiFi OnOff and the Uninstall. I have been left with a box on my desktop that says “Problem loading widget” in it. I can’t seem to remove that remnant. Any ideas how to do that?

    It doesn’t seem to work on the G1 with 1.6 firmware, either – it installs, is visible as installed under Settings, but doesn’t appear anywhere on the desktop or in the list of apps

    How do I get the settings button to be on the bottom of the switch? Mine is on the right-side of the switch.

    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    2 sdtacoma: just activate settings checkbox when you adding a widget on home screen.

    sdtacoma Reply:

    Thanks for the reply. Maybe I wasn’t clear in my original post…

    The settings button IS showing.

    The settings button is showing on the RIGHT-SIDE of the switch.

    Nice! Simple yet so helpful. Whether to save battery or to sync visual VM, makes turning on and off the WiFi too easy!

    cool, I really like your “OnOff” widgets. However on devices with higher resolution (Motorola Droid), they look a bit blurred on the screen. Are you planning to increase the resolution of the bitmaps?

    ver.2.0 without setting key is really unconvenient.

    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    You need to select label as settings, when adding widget.

    The latest version of this is a disaster. Doesn’t line up with other CurveFish widgets even with text label off. Had to uninstall and use a rival product. Any way to go back to an older version? Thanks.

    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    Sure, you can download it from our website. Widgets will line up after I update them all, just need a bit more time.

    Hi! The widgets look great after the laat update. But after this update the WiFi switch is not working-class.as good as before. It reacts slow, or I even have to put it on and off a few times. Also, after a while, when my HTC hero has been on standby, it’s not responding. Have to put it off and on again.

    What happened here?

    very good widget! But one problem:
    After some days the widget switch the WiFi on/of but the icon don’t refresh. So I can’t see if the WiFi is currently switched on or off. I use a Sony Xperia X10. Do you have any idea?


    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    Looks like home screen problem

    This Widget is so amazing. Works flawlessly on Xperia X10.

    Just one small thing!
    When used along side with the Bluetooth Widget and APN Widget, this Widget stands a little higher. I mean if you place them all in the same line (horizontal), the WiFi Widget stands higher than the other two. Can you please fix this?

    Thank you very much.

    PS: Sorry for my bad English. It’s far from my native language.

    Thanks for that =D… That’s the only reason why I’m still on CM 5.08 (Eclair version =D)

    PD: Your widgets and apps are the best… I’m only ussing the free ones for now as my country doesn’t have an open market so I can’t buy the others, but I’m waiting for it to do it ^^…

    Love your widgets. Just upgraded to Froyo using CyanogenMod v6.0.0 RC1 and the “Label” portion of the widget (2.1.0) as well as the ability to one click your way to Wi-Fi settings isn’t working. The label doesn’t show up and clicking in the area where it used to take you to settings doesn’t do anything. This functionality is working find on your Bluetooth On-Off widget.

    I cannot find this app within my apps drawer after I install it. I want to put a shortcut on my screen, but I can’t. I had it installed, but the icon got corrupted. I removed the icon, but couldn’t find the app to replace the shortcut. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and still I can’t find the app. It does appear in my app list under settings, just not in the apps drawer.
    Gotta remove it again and find another app I guess….

    Could you add an optional function to the wifi widget (and in the widget onoff pack) that allows us to press the widget and a screen pops up (like the brightness screen) and you turn wifi on for set amounts of time? like 5, 10 15 minutes kind thing. then it turns itself off after that time.

    Dear Sir,
    Your WiFi On/Off switch is Free download, when I try to load, it takes me to pay for this download; I have paid $0.99 for it. Since I like your switches for all in my Homepage. I am very happy to donate. But the 2G3G won’t work on my HTC Desire 2.2 Froyo, can you tell what I have to do to make it work?

    Thank you.

    Peter Ng

    Vladimir Baryshnikov Reply:

    Hi. We have all our widgets available for free, but we also have a donate version, probably you downloaded donate version.
    2g3g should bring you to the mobile radio settings.

    Would it be possible to change the image of the background icon and the red/green dot, just like with shortcuts? Maybe this will be a nice added feature.

    The icons bite my current phone theme a bit.

    Im having trouble with this widget. I installed it on my homepage, and it was in a bad area. Every attempt to move it just toggled my wifi off and on. After I was unable to figure out how to move it, I went and uninstalled it. I was left with a empty box with “problem loading” written in it, which I am also unable to remove!

    Please help me, as of now this widget has totally F’d up the appearance of my phone!

    I use Garmin-ASUS A10 (Android 2.1) with this widget and working well. But I noticed that when I turn on WiFi through this widget, the WiFi icon won’t appear on status bar immediately, must wait 20-30 seconds around then appear(WiFi now ready). If I turn on WiFi through this widget (now the WiFi status not ready), and go to setting => wireless manager => Wi-Fi, my phone will get IP address immediately and get ready for WiFi. Is there any possible way to accelerate this process to get IP address through this WiFi widget?

    The option to add the WiFi widget just magically appeared. I don’t know why or how, but I just tried to add your rotation widget, which didn’t show up as an available widget to install, but lo and behold, the WiFi WAS now available! However, the widget name shows up on the side of the icon, instead of below it!

    Hi, I installed this App on my Senai N10 4.0.3 Tablet, then decided to uninstall it. Unfortunately, it has left the shortcut/icon on my home page!! I had the same problem after uninstalling Bluetooth OnOff.

    How do I get rid of these “ghost” icons?

    I’ve a LG VS840. Android 2.3.6. The icon is not correctly centered in its grid square, sitting ~3/4 label widths lower than it should. If WIFI on, whole icon activates widget. If WiFi off, widget activation area is tiny, maybe a section of the label on the right. Excellent app though, very useful even with this issue.

    Would be helpful to post the exact tap process to either toggle the wifi/bt status vs bringing up the respective settings screen. Especially on the install information screen.

    I _think_ that tapping the icon toggles the status and tapping the text label brings up the settings, but not sure.
