- Updated translations. Thanks to all my translators! Also, free version updated.
2.4.5 – February 22, 2012
- Fixed bug where UWW would not be notified when wifi connects or disconnects on some devices. This caused the phone to not lock or unlock at the right times.
- Fixed bug where UWW would not start automatically on boot, on some devices.
- Fixed bug where uninstalling from the menu didn’t work if UWW was disabled.
2.4.4 – February 22, 2012
- Fix for crash on startup that some users experienced.
2.4.3 – February 20, 2012
- Android 4.0+ (ICS) compatibility.
- New setup wizard for ICS.
- New log watcher feature that reminds you not to change your password in the normal Android settings. In device admin mode, or ICS, you must change your password in UWW. This is very important, and will help users avoid screwing something up. This is what the READ_LOGS permission is for.
- Minor bug fixes.
- Updated translations
- Changed link from Auto Wifi Enabler to Wifi@Home.
- Improved Like and Tweet functions.
2.3.7 – November 15, 2011
- Persian translation. Thanks to Nima H! Also, a fix for GPS not turning on for some users. Please remember that this feature is still experimental and not guaranteed to work. Note: 2.3.6 was skipped.
2.3.5 – November 7, 2011
- Fix for validation errors. This one appears to have worked.
2.3.4 – October 28, 2011
- Attempted fix for validation errors.
2.3.3 – October 24, 2011
- Bug fix for crash when sending bug report.
2.3.2 – October 19, 2011
- Bug fix for unnecessary warning about other apps preventing the phone from unlocking. Particularly in the case of Notes Traveler.
2.3.1 – October 12, 2011
- Changed the name of the notifications settings to Notification Icon, to avoid confusion. It’s on by default, but you can turn it off in the settings if you want!
2.3 – October 11, 2011
- Keeping notifications turned on improves reliability on devices with low available memory. This is because Android requires an app to show a notification when it’s running in the foreground. Also minor bug fixes.
2.2 – Septemer 28, 2011
- WidgetLocker integration. Unlock With WiFi can now control WidgetLocker. There are options to disable WL when the phone is locked, or when it’s unlocked. It’s up to you!
2.1.1 – September 15, 2011
- Dutch translation. Thanks to Karel B. for the help!
- Chinese translation.
2.1.0 – September 8, 2011
- Bug fix where the app would remain disabled after a successful validation retry.
- Improved Tweet button functionality. You can now use a native Twitter client to tweet, instead of the Twitter website.
2.0.1 – August 23, 2011
- Bug fix for some HTC phones where the screen wouldn’t stay on during a phone call.
2.0.0 – August 10, 2011
- The biggest addition in 2.0 is Device Admin mode. It uses an alternative method of unlocking the device. This method preserves the slide-to-unlock screen when the phone is unlocked. Device Admin mode also makes it less likely that the screen will turn itself on when lock delay is enabled, and it prevents the volume keys from turning the screen on while the phone is unlocked. In order to unlock the device, the password is set to be blank. To lock the device, the password is set back to the original password. This only works with passwords or PINs, not with patterns. Sorry, this is a limitation in Android, not in Unlock With WiFi. There’s nothing I can do about it.
- There are now options to toggle Bluetooth and Auto Sync when you leave/return home. You might want to turn on Bluetooth when you leave home because you use a Bluetooth headset, or have a Bluetooth hands-free function in your car. Turning off Auto Sync when you leave home can save your battery and reduce your cellular data usage. If your device doesn’t have Bluetooth, the option will be automatically disabled.
- The app detects whether it’s possible to toggle your GPS, and disables the options if necessary. Your device must have a GPS chip in it, and it must have the right version of the Power Control widget. For a more detailed explanation, see this post.
- Backing up the app is no longer allowed, because it could result in your password being stored in an insecure location (i.e. your SD card).
- The Spanish and German translations are currently incomplete, due to all the new features in 2.0. I will work on finishing them as soon as possible.
- In the settings screen, there is now an item labeled “WiFi on when home?”. Pressing this link will take you to a free app on the Android Market called Auto WiFi Enabler. I figured that since there’s already a free app out there, why reinvent the wheel. Note that Auto WiFi Enabler was not created by me, Ben Hirashima, and I take no responsibility for it whatsoever. It was included in Unlock With WiFi simply because a lot of people ask if it can turn on the WiFi when you get home.
1.0.10 – June 22, 2011
- Added an option to hide the Facebook and Twitter buttons. Apparently they really bothered certain people.
- The Spanish version has been updated with some minor translation changes.
1.0.9 – June 21, 2011
- Facebook and Twitter buttons added. Help spread the word about UWW!
1.0.8 – June 15, 2011
- German translation. You don’t need to upgrade unless you want the German translation. Thanks to Matthias “eisteh” Wyremba, for help with the translation!
1.0.7 – June 9, 2011
- Spanish translation. This was mostly machine translated, with some editing by myself. Sorry if it doesn’t make sense. My Spanish is not very good
