Is there an app to automatically *enable* wifi?

app to automatically *enable* wifi?

I'm looking for an app that will automatically enable wifi based on location. I'm guessing Tasker could do it, but I was hoping for something more single purpose.

I frequently find myself on the very edges of wifi networks, such that my device tries to connect through them instead of the carrier network, but isn't very successful. In these situations I turn off wifi to prevent the network fight, and then I forget to re-enable it, so I end up using up all my data when I'm sitting somewhere with a perfectly good wifi signal. There are lots of apps that will turn *off* wifi based on location, but I don't want that. I just want it to turn back on when I forget. Is there anything out there that will do this?

Thank you for your help!
