Say OK to clickwall

Wi-Fi Ruler now has a thing that will “Say OK to clickwall”.

Some access points throw up a webpage that requires you to click on OK, etc in order to get internet access.
You have to promise you won’t use the access for evil and/or illegal purposes.
This new thing in ‘Ruler tries to automate that.

Of course, we haven’t tried it with all clickwalls.
So we expect it will be a few problems.

Please leave comments here and not in the Market.
Thanks.

If its working, let us know too

Wi-Fi Ruler 1.5 – Paid

Since its first release on Sept 3, 2010, Wi-Fi Ruler – Free has been downloaded tens of thousands of times. I have received tons of feedback from users all over the world – which is really cool. I wish I could travel all the places you guys go!

A very common request was to make it run all the time. As you may know, when you go back or change the app you are using in some other way Android might stop previously used apps to free up resources.  And that includes Wi-Fi Ruler.  To make it run all the time I needed to rewrite large parts of the app to make it able to run as a “service” without a user-interface at times.  I also added the ability to start when the phone boots … so you’ll never have to manually start it if you like. I enlisted some smart/friendly users to try it out. After 4 release candidates I have released it has a Wi-Fi Ruler – Paid. The paid version has no ads. Developing the Paid version was an opportunity to fix a few problems and perform some optimizations in the Free version (which the Paid version inherited, of course).

Its priced really cheap. I hope you find useful!
(Since I don’t have a data plan I use it all the time)

– For new Paid version: menu option to open database permission for export,

Give it a try.

My phone covered with tinfoil to test how the app behaved when there were no access points
