Easily wake up computers from your phone/tablet!

* For this app to work, you need to make sure that your computer and network is set up for and supports Wake On Lan / WOL *

Automate waking up your computers by sending an intent broadcast from apps such as Llama and Tasker!
In the latest version there is now support for Tasker plugins to make it even easier to automatically wake devices.
Instructions on how to do this are available in the latest version of the app under the help section.

Quick Feature List
* Groups
* Network Search (Find devices on your network and add them to your list. No more finding out MAC addresses etc!)
* One touch wakeup widget for both devices and groups (A widget with online status is coming soon)
* Tasker plugin
* Intent Broadcast support (See instructions inside app help section for details on this)
* CSV Import/Export - So you can share your list of devices easily!
* Material Design (Taking suggestions on this!)
* Auto-Refreshing Device Online Status (Using both ports and ping)
* Supports Wake On Lan(WoL) and Wake On Wan(WoW)
* SecureOn

For WoW, just set the broadcast address to be the remote IP address of the device. This may require some extra setup on the remote network to make sure that the wakeup packets actually arrive on the remote device.

If you're trying to wake up a device that is connected via WiFi it may not work, there's not many WiFi cards that support the WOL standard. WOL works best via an ethernet connection. Some devices such as laptops may not support WOL very well or at all. Some might only work when they are in sleep mode, and others might allow you to turn it on when it is powered off.

Permission Details
Photos/Media/Files/USB Storage - This is used for reading/writing CSV files to your internal storage so that you can copy your list of devices to other devices easily.

Network/WiFi - This is so that the app can actually send the magic packets to wake up your devices. It is also used in the network search screen and for pinging devices to see if they are online.

Awesome Works great. I like the tasker integration, thanks ;)


Widget icon too big Thanks Mike for updating and giving us options for widget size and text. Perfect now!

Edwin Mehlman

Perfect. Nice simple clean It would be nice to get a little direction how to set up the ping functionality... Also some integration with MS' remote desktop app (if installed) would be FANTASTIC!

Aaron Osler

Great app It does what it says and has an easy to use interface. I can't ask for anything more. In fact, I would only ask to keep it simple, just like it is.

Huw McNamara

Great Tried a few WOL apps and this one is by far the best. Great design, lots of cool features and works perfectly!

Holt Wong

Looks great, works great This is hands down the best looking WoL out there (fits really well with lollipop) and it works flawlessly so far too. The ping to check online feature is a bit flaky but is a nice bonus. The interface is simple and easy to use while still being fully featured. And it's free!

Dries Schiltz

Just works and looks good too!

Martin Larsson

Yes! Autodetects my computer and it actually work first click. Well done! Would have liked to be able to rename the computer.

Matthew Campbell

Looks great, works as advertised

Kevin Hanna Rahhal

Really cool app. I love the material design. I only wish you were allowed to change the frequency to which your devices get pinged

Richard Garai

Works great Now I don't need to leave my PC turned on to remote control it whenever I feel like.

Niclas Eriksson

Simple and works great! Scans the network and allows you to store away MAC of any running machine for later use. Very nice and simple.

Micah Madru

Amazing Love being able to wake my computer from anywhere in the world.

Isaac Vander Vorst

Great Best WoL app for Android I have tried yet. Thanks Dev!

Jon Bross

Beautiful and Functional App implements material design and its initiative in its UI. Also provides all the things I was looking for (including tasker support). Would like the online indicator to work when not within the LAN but that's not a make or break deal.

Austin Curtis


Alan C.

Excellent UI Best looking app for WoL on Google play, we need more of this. Good work !

Richard Roberts

Great App This is the best looking WoL app available on the Play Store. It works exactly as expected and Tasker support is great. The only thing I wish is that I could manually refresh (with the material animation!) the status of my clients. Also, the drawer could be adjusted to follow Material guidelines (full height and behind the statusbar). Not a big deal, just a suggestion to the developer.

George G.

Perfect! I just joined Google+ so I had to rate. This is the most beautiful and functional Wake on Lan app in the Play Store. And with the best icon! ;) :)

Tasos Pap

Oooooh the design.. Beautiful. Was waiting for a WOL app with material design for ages.

Uuencode Petersson

Beautiful wol app It's pity I have one wired computer only and I turn it on once a day. Thank you for this perfect app!

Zavier Primo

Great App, Good UI This App is amazing. I cant seem to get the widget or the automation with tasker.

Igor Wojnicki

Perfect Beautiful and functional. Automatic search and online status. Everything I need.

David Whitman

Hidden gem It's too bad that this app is so far down the results for a "WOL" search, because it looks and works flawlessly. Very nice material design implementation and the widget + tasker integration round out the nice-to-have feature set.

Cody Sauer

The only WoL you need. *Update* You nailed it out of the park with this last update. Your support, promptness and the app itself is 5 brilliant stars. Bravo!

A Google User

Very nice! Any chance for material design? [edit] Was added now, thanks! A nicer Material looking icon would be cool, but now I'm just nitpicking. [edit] Was added now, very nice, great work!

Nick Kenny

Almost perfect! Would like an import and export function but this is already the best WOL app out of the many that I've tried.

Dimitris Chr.

Beautiful & Simple Maybe add a tablet optimised version!

NaoandMish Sulva

Looks nice, but Why does the app need access to media like photos, videos, etc? Other wol apps don't have this requirement, so why does this one??

Tu Cao

Widget too big Update: wow, thanks for adding widget height. 4 stars. Mike, please add option to not display computer name in the widget. Would be perfect 5 stars then!

Jonathan Livingston

perfectly Thank you for the design and widgets. very nice


Yet one hint is needed - on the filled devices list The time between the very first scan and the next rescan can be big enough so user forgets how he perform initial scan (with hint) and on the resulted devices list there is no hint how to do it again.

Макс Фрай

Great! But.. Add please possibility to delete or change settings of device, its really important.

Alex Rowe

Works. Clean. Love it. Tried a few WOL apps, and they all do the same thing. But this has a beautiful design. Love the fact that the widgets are re-sizable. Get this one. (:

Felix Adrian

works like a charm nice app to have when your pc case is far away from you. (or just lazy to push the power button ?) tasker integration is an awesome bonus! plus the interface is very nice too.

Ludovic Vincent

Juste works Configuration mods on computers can take a while. Loaded up this app and had both desktops automatically detected and added and working with WoL in under 60 seconds. Hasn't failed me yet. Very impressive app.

Biagesho Laguerre

Great app, however I am having an issue and it may be my fault. The computer will only wake if I am on my network. If i am on another wi-fi network or just data the computer will not wake. Am I doing something wrong?

Bradley Nielsen

Works on nexus, but not on S5 S5 will not find systems over network

dazel Galolo

Works.Easy And Simple to Use.

Adam Watson

Well done Really nice, well designed app, great functionality and the UI is a pleasure to use

Amein mdy

Great Straight to the point.

Richard Frost

Very nice I really love the design and features included. Best of all, it works great!

Tasos Pap

Oooooh the design.. Beautiful. Was waiting for a WOL app with material design for ages.

Aidan Alexander

Works on my Windows 10 desktop Works as advertised. It wakes my PC from shutdown (S5) and sleep (S4), had to configure settings on my BIOS and drivers so bare that in mind if it doesn't out of the box for you. Seems to be a bug on my oneplus 2 where as soon I open the app it turns on my computer, but its not a real issue.,

Milan Dalsania

Constantly sends a wake signal The app constantly sends a wake signal so as soon as I put the computer in sleep mode it starts up. I confirmed this by powering off my phone and then powering it back up after putting my computer to sleep. I also confirmed that "magic packets" are enabled. I'm using the app on a Galaxy S5 and this is this first and only WOL app on my device.

Christian Jean

Excellent App. Wake on WoW couldn't be easier. I have a dynamic ip, so i got a free account on the site "no-ip". Put my no-ip info into the Dyndns page of my router. Then on the NAT page of my router made a new entry: name it anything, internal port 9, external port 9, protocol: both, for device chose my pc. Then in the android app settings for broadcast name I put in the broadcast name given to me by no-ip. 5 minutes to setup and works perfectly.

Craig Peace

Excellent app. Small , neat and with the connection to tasker this little app goes a long way. Only problem ive got (my fault im sure) is that the widget doesn't show whether the pc is on or off, no great hardship.

Tina Menzies

Brilliant! Enabled WOL in my laptop's bios and network card and works both from power off and sleep. Thanks!!!

Romeo Manuel David

Good interface, works well The app has a good interface and even a three year old can use it! It works on my PCs. It is so easy to use, you dont have to be a major tech geek to operate this! Good job developers!

pedro aquino

Not working Can "see" my Windows machine (w7), the status circle goes from green to red when I shut it down, however when I attempt the remote boot, it prompts the following message "device-name woken"...gave you a 3 star due to the fact that it can scan the network and collect the w7 device MAC

Stu Stan

Useful app! Useful app, very good UI which is simple to use.

Tushar Chinchalkar

Perfect! Wake from sleep and complete shut down. Wakes desktop pc from complete shutdown as well as sleep . Has an easy button widget on my cell phone to do the job! I Don't have to touch my pc case anymore.

Matt Carter

Perfect for my media server! Just what I needed to boot the media server when I feel like watching a movie.

Michael Morgan

Works perfectly. With the right router configuration and a little networking know-how, this app can also wake your PC from anywhere you have an internet connection. Simple interface and easy to use. I use this in conjunction with an RDP app to turn on and access my computer from anywhere using my smartphone!

vimu wijayaratne

Need help Is there any way to do this wireless without Ethernet required?


Great app Automatic find pc on lan, so you must only enter external ip and port number. Excellent app. Good work!!

Teymur Myasoutov

Works flawlessly! Didn't have a problem so far with my rooted N6 and Win10. Made a scene in Tasker and tied it to a couple if tasks. Kudos!

Praneet Jaiswal

Just out of this world It works like charm Really Good app

Alexandru Onea

Good application It worked from the first attempt.

Stefan Alexandrov

It works only when my phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi as the PC and not when using mobile data :/

Christian Weaves

Brilliant What more can you ask for?!

Nicholas J

Help Do you have to port forward for this to work or anything like that? Because it does not turn on my pc ever.

Nick Asbill

Wakes from complete shutdown Only app that my pc wanted to communicate with from full shutdown. Awesome app!

Gábor Reményi

Best WOL app for Android I use this app to turn my PC on so that I could access it through RDP. The app is very easy to configure after you added the necessary setting in your router and PC.

Laurens Weyn

Neat Does the job well. The widget is a nice extra!

Mohammadhossein Mountuno

Great I luv it , it work as advrested , its good

Gavin Lo

*gasp* It works! And it saves!

Ted Ledbetter

Great program and design. Lots of features and no excess permissions. Does exactly what it needs to do and does it well. The only feature I'd like to request is the ability to set a PIN (or password) to open the application. Authy has this option and it would be nice to see something similar to this here.

Bleddyn Davies

Perfect This is great, just works when others wouldn't. I'd pay for this app.

Philipp Bauer

Simply the best WOL app

Ryan Collingwood

Works as advertised

Борис Георгиев

Perfect It works perfectly, it's easy to use and the interface is simple. Works grat over VPN.

Damir Dzamastagic

Great!! :) Just great Had some problems with the bios setting but after I set it right this app is working just fine. It replaces the old ps/2 keyboard. I have usb keyboard and wont turn my pc on. This is the best solution !! Thanks for the app and your effort

John Carter

Very well designed tool!

Scott Matics

Works great! Perfect and reliable solution.

John Tankard

Great Works as expected, just note... If trying to wake a device through a vpn tunnel make sure you specify a broadcast address...


Great but...! App is great except the widget colors of red and green are almost inpreceptable it would be nice if we could set our own custom on/off colors or at least allow a different on color option blue would be good.

Naveen Kumar P.G

Works perfect! Trust me! Usually I never left feedback for any apps this is 1st time. Works perfect as expected. I use to leave my computer in sleep mode. Now I can wakeup my PC through Internet using this app. Simply awesome awesome! Thanks guys! Keep rocking

Bhupen Pal

Doesn't accepts the MAC address It doesn't accepts the MAC address having two alphabets next to each other. My MAC address is something like this xx:xx:AF:xx:xx. And it doesn't accepts it.

Renma DIGI

Is working But... Why this app can't shutdown my computer, If you can do it , I will give you 5 star.

David Steinlage

Works great, convenient widget I built a new computer with an ASRock X99 Extreme 4 motherboard and this app is able to wake it up from sleep with ease. Setup was easy, the computer had to be on and the app automatically finds it on the network. You can then place a widget to turn the system on with one tap in the home screen and the widget will change color indicating the status of the system it's associated with. Works great for me!

Abhiram Shibu

This app does the work but there is a issue When the app is open it sends wake signals without touching the PC. So if I have to hibernate PC I have to force kill this app

Kieran Dee

Instantly worked This app is attractive and it instantly worked once all the settings were enabled on my computer. Personally, I would love an android wear companion for this app as it would make turning on my computer even easier :D

Archie Labordo

It works. Works great with Windows 10 x64.

Marçal Torà

Best WOL App/Service Easy, clear, and successful

Ian Brooks

It simply works! This app simply works. Within a minute of downloading and installing the app I was able to turn on all my PCs around the house. Brilliant!

Robert Robinson

Works, but with conditions. Worked for my PC and NAS but only if PC had been off at mains, i.e. disconnected prior to wol message; and NAS had been powered down recently from device switch, but not disconnected from mains. This may be peculiar to my devices.

Aaron King

Nice little app, easy to use but... if you can integrate shutdown function then this app would be perfect! :) Work perfectly with Windows 10, easy to search and connect, no stupid ads, no rate this app spam. [Tips] if you are having problem waking up your pc try updating your lan driver manually, especially Realtek lan card.

Alfie Cairns

Unlike most other wake on LAN apps, this one not only actually works without a hitch but is simple to use and nice looking too. Few other apps offer the basic functionality of waking a PC without being saddled with a bunch of other functions that many (including myself) have no interest in. This app is fast, efficient, and simple at doing that one task!

Andrey Z

Perfect!!! Waking my NAS from internet in seconds, I spent hours with other apps to configure such function, but this one works right away!


Works! I tried to use it on my asus laptop. Won't work when its off, but it wakes it up from hibernation (witch is on laptop basically same thing as shutdown). U saved me, since that old lappy is behind tv, and i use it for multimedia. Now i dont have to go and press that button everytime i want to power it on! Thanks!

Andres Sierra

Works like a charm ? The app detected my pc on the net, bios on it was already configured, turned off the pc and then tested, worked like a charm!! Keep it up and thanks for the app!!

david hughes

Brilliant. Wakes my Windows 10 PC up and works great, had to update my realtek pcie driver first but works brilliantly.

Ko Er

Work fine I wake my home pc win7 from hybernate mode every morning). I don't need to push a power button. It's very good )

Joshua McKenzie

Wakes computer without request I have to force stop the app for my computer to stay off(hibernate or sleep). Other than that works ok

Glenn Koster, Jr.

Exactly what I needed! A lot of WOL programs claim to use a magic packet but don't. This one does and more. Once I had my router configured with a static ARP table I needed a reliable WOL program. This one is great. Thanks.

Richard White

Does what it says on the tin Simple to use, even for dimwits like me.

Kevin Fiscarelli

Not working I have wol working on my network between desktops. I cannot enter in lowercase letters in mac address setup?? Not waking up my desktop? Installed different app that worked.

Will Young

Great I love how I don't have to manually input Mac adressess and what not. Too simple.

Shy Varem

Quick & simple As the title says, quick and simple. Makes the job done.

Mattia Dorigatti

Yess Finally a good looking wol app!! Thanks man

James Goodey

Works great and looks nice too I think most of the negative reviews are due to the users either not having set up their PC correctly, or not having compatible hardware. The app was very easy to set up, and doesn't look awful like other apps that have the same function. Just make sure you set up your PC first using one of the many guides online for using wake on LAN.

Michael Morguarge

Does not work. I tried to wake my computer from sleep but no response. It recognizes the pc is off but does not wake up the pc. The magic packets do not reach the pc for some reason.

arun sookur

Sony x Works thanks but make sure you do the Pc configuration first too bad some old motherboard does not support it

Tom Harris

Brilliant! People: WOL as a system does not allow the shutdown of a computer from a magic packet. This is not a limitation of the app! The app works perfectly for me, and looks great too. It even has a small icon-like widget to add to your home screen on a PC-by-PC basis. Great!

Yatin Mehndiratta

I can't give five stars yet sorry Can we turn on the Laptop ? And is it necessary to Attach Ethernet Cable with Laptop ?

Ryan Lacy

Does exactly what I needed I often need to wake my desktops to access my Plex server. This app took moments to identify my computer and set up. Takes seconds to wake the computer and works reliably.

aaron letchford

Don't work Hi this did not work for me I'm a little disappointed as I like the layout and look of this I will try this again soon

Peppaz Fletcher

It works! AMAZING Worked 100% ... Easy to use... All i did was scan my network automatically, when it found my Computer i clicked on it to register. Then i enabled wake up lan in BIOS. Love it. Thank you!!

Kody Mullins

Great app The app works great for me. I was immediately able to wake my computer from sleep but not when it was shut down for some reason, which is what I needed it for. After some digging I determined that WOL from shutdown is not supported in Windows 10 and 8.1 unless you go to "control panel> power options> choose what the power buttons do" and uncheck "Turn on fast startup". This is a problem with Windows and not the app though.

Jose Acosta

Works beautifully and easy to setup I am able to do WOL and WOW easily from my Note 5. I thought that setting up WOW from an external network like my tmobile internet would be impossible, but when I set up a No-ip host name and plugged it in to the router and into the app..I was able to power on my PC from S5 off state without a hiccup. The main reason I love this app is for the clean and useful widget. Thanks!

Chad Emory

I love the app and it starts all my systems up with no problems. BUT after the last update to the program, it no longer detects when the systems are running. I tried to contact the developer but the email and Domain are not accessible and email is returned to sender.

Alan Tech

Awsomeeee Works flawlessly on nexus 6p. For the people who still hace issues. You need: 1 network adapter that supports wol. Enabled it by BIOS and on the os. Also if you are on w8 or 10 you need to disable fastboot(using ssd only i went from 8sec of boot to 10, from shutdown)

Victor Hartong

Why the emails? I like the app, with the widgets its awesome. But it keeps trying to send an e-mail?? Really weird. And the shutdown/sleep function would indeed be awesome! Edit: in that case 5 stars!!

Sober Monki

The app works awesome over Wi-Fi and LAN, but I did have a bit of trouble getting this app to work over my phone's mobile data (or remotely from WAN). For anyone who is having trouble with using this app remotely, I'll explain what I did. First, through your router, you'll want to go to LAN and assign your PC a Static IP. Then go to your network adapters on your PC and manually assign the same static IP that you did in your router. Then, in your router again, using port forwarding, forward port 9 (it's the default port in the app, it can be changed to whatever port you want, just make sure to change it in the app as well) to your PC's static IP. Now, in your Wake On LAN app scan the local network and add your PC. Then, edit the device and click on advanced details. Under Device IP, you want to set this to your WAN IP address (easily obtained by googling "What's my IP". Alternatively, you can use a DDNS here instead. I use No-IP (it's free). After you do all this, you should be good to go. Then you can use something like TeamViewer to control your PC. ;D

Konrad Drozdz

Awesome App Really handy, took few seconds to look up my pc on the network. Works like a treat

Ezio Mozzarella

Works great but needs a fix This app works great to wake my PC from anywhere in the world and it's very convenient in doing so, but the one thing I don't like that I'd like to see fixed is that all my devices automatically wake when I open the app, and I'm not sure why. Could be isolated, I don't know.

Michèl Kobs

Works flawlessly Instantly finds any computer, wakes them 100% correctly. Never tried the group awakening stuff though, but i dont doubt that it will work. Also easy to operate. Definetly deserves more than 5*

Li Bin

Does not work from shutdown Hi Mike, I could get WOL to work from sleep mode but not when PC is fully shutdown. The power will turn on but Windows will fail to load and I will get sent to the BIOS. Exiting the BIOS and restart will only send me back to the BIOS. I can only boot into Windows when I disable the power on by pcie option. Any idea what could I have done wrong here?

ali k

Mr. Mike I would have been very happy and wished for your well being if this app actually worked. I downloaded and installed Realtek pcie gbe family controller (30.07.2016). But it doesn't work either.

Brandon Smith

Don't download Puts spam on your phone. I was getting annoying pop-ups every time I unlocked my phone and sometimes in the middle of using an app. I know it was from this app due to it being the only change on my phone.

Kevin Marnholz

Flawless Does exactly what it says it does. I can finally remotely wake up my PC to use it with a Steam controller while I'm still in my bed. Heaven.

Salim H.

The app is trying to send email !!! Why ? Talking about app permission, i receive a message several times per day that the app couldn't send email cause I denied the access. Why an app designed to wake on land computer need to be granted a permission for sending emails.

Kevin Bolt

Great After a bit of faff with the router, finally got my remote wake up working. App does what it needs to. Thanks :)
