Apps that Control Data (3G) Connections with a Schedule/Timer

    Hi Guys,

    I am knew to android and am absolutely loving it on my Desire, so glad i never went with a certain fruit company:p

    Anyways, i have had a search around here and on the market place and cannot find an app that suits my needs.

    Basically, i run timeriffic (which is fantastic by the way) and mostly i use a wi-fi connection. However there are times when i know there is no wi-fi around eg. when i travel to work, so i have it turned off. What i would like to know is if there is any app out there that would allow me to schedule a time to turn on my 3g data connection (i have APNdroid installed and 3g disabled as default) for those periods when my wi-fi is off so i always have a data connection.

    I did see the app Data on Demand and this would have been perfect but it did not work with my Desire.

    Can anyone using a Desire let me know if they have tried Data on Demand and got it working and what conditions it was working


    Can someone recommend an app that meets my needs?

    I guess if not i will need to contact the developer of timeriffic (who i have seen around here) and see if there is anyway he could intergrate with APNdroid and control 3G data connections.

    Thanks for any help provided

    Never mind guys, i found the timeriffic does have a APNdroid feature. For some reason my Mobile Internet settings became corrupt, had to do a hard reset but now timeriffic is controlling 3g effectively.

    i think that i use an application which is exactly what you are looking for.
    The app is connection commander, and with it you can schedule when and how you want to connect. I use it to connect in wifi every work day starting at 09:30 and to disable mobile data traffic in the night. because of my work, i travel a lot, and with it i also program flight mode so i don't have to worry about reminding to set it on :)

    i hope it hepls you :)
