Hey everybody,

I've been looking for the answer to this, and I imagine there's a simple one..

I don't want to keep my wifi or mobile data on all the time, but is there a way to allow certain apps to access the internet when they need to, or at certain times? Eg email

Any info would be much appreciated.

Much depends on the single app.
I find this works perfectly with k-9 mail for me:
