Evil android app part 2 - WifiKill

I remember that a few months ago I've heard something about an app that can disable internet connection for some devices on a network. So I downloaded the app but had no place to test it, thus it ended up in the "recicle bin". A few weeks ago a friend of mine (from work) started to listen to this really annoying song (was nice the 1st time) over and over again, streamed from youtube to his phone. At first it was all OK, but when she hit the replay button the 5th time, I felt like I will go crazy... So I re-downloaded this WifiKill app again, and fired it up. To my surprise it worked really well! It disabled her phone's internet connection (over Wifi), so there was no 6th time replay. OFC I went a step further and disabled every PC that was connected to the Wifi netword I was on. The app disabled them all :D I could hear cursing from the other room. It was hard not to laugh... So I though: this app is gold! when people will annoy me with  songs, when they will steal bandwidth with torrents and other stuff, BAM, I will disable them.

Very effective little app for WiFi network hogger. Some people really don't get it that we have a relatively slow internet connection at work, and if they download, they make it even slower (a lot of times crash the WiFi router...).
So this is my secret little app that I keep on my phone and maintain the balance with it :D

This app wasn't made for abuse, but for network control.

I quote the developer:
"Well, with this app you can disable internet connection for a device on the same network. So if someone (anyone) is abusing the internet wasting precious bandwidth for a Justin Bieber videoclips you could just kill their connection and stay happy with a full bandwidth just for yourself."

Head over to XDA and read about the app + get the free version (with ADs), and if you like it, consider buying the full version for about 3$.

You won't find this app on the android market as google pulled it down. They considered this app too evil! :D
Have fun with it!

I don't know if it's so much evil as it is hilarious.
