BatteryFu (pronounced Battery-Foo, like in Kung-Fu) is an Android app that extends battery life (and lowers data usage) by changing always-on mobile/wifi data to periodic sync (meaning it disables your mobile data and/or Wifi, then checks your accounts every X minutes).
You can control BatteryFu from another app by broadcasting Intents. The Intents should have their
action set to
batteryfu.intent.action.TOGGLE, and the action URI is used to specify that to
toggle, for example
data://on to enable data, and
data://off to disable it. Here is an example:
// turn data on Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setAction("batteryfu.intent.action.TOGGLE"); intent.setData(Uri.parse("data://on")); sendBroadcast(intent);
Other schemes you can toggle are:
batteryfu- enable/disable BatteryFu
nightmode- enable/disable nightmode
travelmode- enable travel mode
standardmode- enable standard mode
offlinemode- enable "always offline" mode
onlinemode- enable "always online" mode
sync- perform a data sync, turn data on if necessary
data- enable/disable data (mobile and/or wifi, depending on settings)
See the Intent filter in the AndroidManifest.xml file for the full list of intent schemes.
BatteryFu depends on the https://github.com/koush/Widgets library, but an older version of it. It won't compile with newer versions, so a copy of the library source is included in the Widgets/ folder. You can use Gradle to build, or import Widgets as a project into Eclipse and add it as an Android library.
