Concept on What It Does?
- If your display screen is off, it toggles the mobile data to turn on/off every few minutes.
- If the display is on, then it wont turn the data on/off
- It detects if 2g/3g/4g is on as well

Donate Version Extra Features:
- With the donate version you can control the time settings.

What's the difference between this and tons of applications out there that turns off the automatically turns off the data when the screen is off?
- I have unlimited internet bandwidth on my phone but limited battery life. I rely on the internet for my instant messaging and work emails. If I use one of those applications that turns off the data when the screen is off, then technically I wont be able to receive those emails until I turn on the screen. That's how the idea of creating Auto Data came from. Basically I want to be able to receive messages while the screen is off without heavy battery usage.

Why Create This App?
- I'm looking for a way to extend battery life of my phone (HTC ONE X) without me having to turn on and off the mobile data manually since I have unlimited mobile data but limited battery life
- I want to learn how to program even the simplest things on Android for my own use

- You tell me

Not working?
This application requires that Mobile Data is initially turned "on" in Android System Settings to make it work.

Battery Still Draining Fast?
If you flashed a new ROM, you have to give it a few charge cycles in order for the battery to normalized and be calibrated. Usually, 3 - 4 full charge cycles before you'd notice the difference.

Donate Version
If you like Auto Data and would like to help out, you can consider donating. By donating you get the full features of Auto Data unlocked.
Donation can only be done through PayPal at the moment, as Google Checkout doesn't support the country where Im at so until Google Checkout supports comes, no choice but to use PayPal (Sorry about that).

Once you have donated, kindly send me an Email with your PayPal confirmation code and I will send you a APK that will unlock Auto Data.
Kindly allow me up to 48 hours to send you the APK file that unlocks AutoData, I have to send you the APK manually and due to time zone differences I cannot promise that I can send it immediately, but I will ASAP!

Donation Amount?
Any amount is appreciated. I do not put a minimum limit to donation. It's a donation so what ever you feel like then its fine!
Thanks for considering donating!

- By installing and trying this application, I take no responsibility on what it does to your phone. Please use this at your own risk! If you do not accept this then please don't try this application.

- As this application has been developed for my own use since I have unlimited mobile data, if you do not have unlimited mobile data then I suggest you do not use this application since it automatically turns on and turns off your mobile data.
PS: Again, I have to do actual testing to determine if it does improve battery life. Would help if others can do testing as well

Telstra Moto Defy, not working After leaving screen off for about 15 minutes, on multiple tests, test emails came thru ' instantly'. Power saving feature was set on. Worth trying again after bugs are ironed out. Good concept.

Chris Wiseman

Halfway to good. One 3rd way to perfect. Perfect app would be custom control on each email or social app individually for occasional checking, and to switch off all other apps unless phone switched on. This app only good for power saver which switches all apps off until phone on. Will keep app on phone, wait for update, will use then because I have faith this dev may achieve perfect app.

Samsung galaxy note After downloading and testing almost every battery life saver app from the market...this is the only I haven't deleted after 2 days...I swear on everything I love, my battery use to last 4-6 it last 10 to 24hrs depending on usage...last changed my phone at 10pm last night and its now 8am in the morning and I have 61 percent of battery left...this app is the best...about to get the donate version

Rahul Raj

Does exactly what is needed! Plus the developer is extremely prompt! Couple of points that he shared : 1. Power saving mode completely shuts down data when screen off. 2. Power saving "off" mode - data stays on for 5 min after screen off and then cycles every 10 min (5min on time) One point from me: In case the logs do not show On-off behavior as you expect, try restarting the cell (with App On and Auto On with boot)

Ansh Lohani

Awesome app...a bit work needed nice app...just started using it. a suggestion - plz add a toggle switch to turn off the mobile data if wifi is on. while monitoring i saw the mobile data keep switching on & off even when i was connected to my wifi. switching data connection unnecessarily uses battery, so better it remain off during wifi connecion. iball andi 4.5h user

Lord Optik

Can you make it not enable data when the WiFi is on please? I'm on Republic Wireless so I want WiFi on all the time usually. I notice this app keeps turning the 3g on and off when I power the phone back on and the phone is connected with WiFi. Doing this will actually be using a lot more battery then just leaving it off. Is there a simple way you can do this? If there is, I will gladly pay some money towards this app.

A Google User

Good idea It does manage your 3g better. It does help for people that forgets to turn off their data. Ver y similiar to how the iphone works

Steve Wang

Great battery saver! I played with several battery saver programs, this is better than all of them imo. Put it in bTtery saving mode and it turn data off when the screen is of. What a genius little app!

Erin Warren

Really saves battery Power saving mode is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm not sure how much battery the default mode saves. An option to control wifi the in a.similar manner that would save a lot of battery.

masum ahmed

doesn't work Oby power saving mode works.otherwise it doesn't work at all . device: Moto X

Earl Tash

Casio g"zone comando C771 Well it seemed to work fine on my droid..... Little slow at starting things up, but it did do it.... Thanks for making one that actually works... We need more developers like U.... Well after a few times of the screen shutting off n back on it stopped working.... It wont start or stop data ofr wifi.... So il changing the stars to 2... Maybe it works fine on newer phones...?

Orwah Almarei

The one I was looking for Does extactly what it said, I got the donated verion. it is great application with great idea. Thanks

Javier Pinilla

Don't take it abroad On/off function doesn't work correctly after turning the phone off. Set this app to off and it keeps turning on my data.

Igor Varfolomeev

10/10 I dont review much, but this should be in top 10 most useful apps of the year. Saves battery life by 60% and no annoying ads

Paradorn Suksingha

Working Great Just try to use this app feature with my Galaxy S3 and it's working well. Thanks for your cool concept. It helps safe my battery.

Danny Mullins

Really does improve battery the I've been using the donate version of this app for a couple of months now on my Nexus 4. It is now extremely rare that l need to worry as to whether my phone will make it though the day or not. The thing is, that where I work the 2g-3g signal is weak, so a lot of battery is used in trying to pick up a signal. Auto data has solved my problem.

A Google User

problems with new release (2.5) On my device (HTC EVO 3D with ICS), the donate version seems doesn't switch off when display turn off. I have turned on "Auto Data Enable" and "Start on Boot" only and switched off "Auto Wi-Fi Mode", "Power Saving Mode", "Notifications", "Logs" and "Auto Clear Mode", is it enough for working? The 2.0 version worked. Thanks and CIAO!!

A Google User

Tethering I will be great if the mobile data is not switched off when using wifi tethering.


Doesn't work Only seems to work when power saving mode is enabled. If power saving mode is disabled the app doesn't turn mobile data on or off at all

Venkatesh Gopalan

Excellent App This app is very useful and it help to get rid of monitoting GPRS. One suggestion , when ever it switch on it should automate to activiate the synching function, so the mails will get download automatically. Good attempt. ALL THE BEST.

A Google User

Awesome app Works like a charm to keep my data off and battery full when I'm not actively using my phone. Data turns on when I need it though if you use a lot of apps that needs data to update information there's a donate option to allow you set it to enable data after a delay. Great app!

Stephan Bartmann

Keeps crashing On my htc one it barely starts but it's a great idea! Hope it gets fixed soon !

A Google User

Great App! Works as expected. Developer responds to suggestions! Can't wait for the widget.

Jayson Sparrow

just what i needed tried most of the battery saver apps in the market but this one takes the cake. no frills, no gimmicks. good job kabayan!

Jared Amoroso

Just what I needed No frills, and none of the battery consuming app killing which other popular apps do. Galing!

Rodney McDaniel

Great App! This app shuts down your data when your screen times out. Great battery and data saver.

Indradeep Sen

An ordinary app Dear developer, I was happy to read the concept as I was in need of something similar. But this app isn't doing what you claimed. The data turns off once screen is turned off, but never turns on until you turn on the screen. I expected the data to toggle on/off in certain intervals while screen is off but alas, it doesn't! Please let me know if I'm the only one with this issue, or it's the app.

hieu pham

Very helpful app It's a good app, but is there any ways to adjust the data on time and off time? Cause i want to adjust the data on time to 1 minute and off time is 10 minutes or something to save a bit of battery. Thanks

Tye Sabin

Note 3 Works a treat, great work dev !

A Google User

Wow I love this tool it's really the best turns data off when screens off than turns it back on when screens on really really saves me money thank you very much

deepak joshi

Most useful app for extending battery life Works as described. I tried many apps, but this one is the best

Beyond Im

Almost excellent!! Needs a nice wiget! Some custom settings would be great! Hope the Dev. get back on this project!!

Arman Veretennikov

Works but Turn off, no data, so I don't know about how Gmail can work...

A Google User

Limited control No control over how long data is on or off. No automatic power saver mode enable.

Ayaz Bangash

Best from years As always does what it says.

A Google User

It works! I am very pleased with this app now I don't need too turn on and off mobile data,it is always ready whene there is no wifi. And the developer is open for suggestion. Keep up the great work:)!

Nick Lee

S3 Works prefectly... Looking forward for Auto Data 2.

Matthew Willaman

Great App Turns off mobile data when the screen is off. No fuss, no muss.

Navin Chowdhari

Only turn on/off wifi I thought it will turn on off mobile data but not

David A. Stewart

Was going to write something like this app yself until I found it was already available. Biggest battery consumer is the wireless radio, this app handles that problem well. It would be great if the developer would add wifi in similar fashion. Great app.

Vi. K.

Tethering Great app, it does it's job. Only If the mobile data would not switch off when using wifi tethering, it would make it perfect for me.

Joe Namenyi

Great app! Many apps running in the background using your data connection for updating or collecting info! So this is a solution for that! Data connection turns on when screen is on!


Ghanta!! Dosent do anythin! M on htc 820. Wud luv to c it wrk.

A Google User

New Galaxy Note 3 update fail Samsungs Note 3 latest update now not working with this app. Please could you fix? Regards

Ajay Kumar

Top Working App For Auto off data Use it with ussd blocker for annoying balance messages. Its a top app. Just wabted to tell others

Brent Moseley

Good idea - buggy implementation It's a great idea in theory, but it has not been implemented properly. If I disable mobile data once I'm home and on wifi, it keeps turning data back on. Even if I disable the app, it continues to toggle data with the screen. Also, it never turns on data periodically when the screen is locked.

A Google User

It works fine This app works fine, auto enabling/disenablig data connection when the screen is off.. good work.

Sangram Keshari Prusty-SKP

Fake app It turn off the data after 5min of screen lock then again after 5 min of data off it again on for 5 mins It goes like this on-off on-off

Tebogo Michael

Now unstable on kitkat Sometimes it turns on data and never turns off and visa versa

niaz abdulkader

Can't find the settings Cant set up time. Pls adv what am i missing. Like to set it on 20min off and run for a minute then off. Seems like option is missing or hidden or is it available only on paid version. Thanks for your time.
