This app automatically configures Android device to use your preferred DNS servers (resolvers) on every wireless lan access-points (Wi-Fi AP, hotspot).
You can choice faster and secure DNS servers s.t. Google Public DNS, Comodo secure DNS, etc.
When Android device creates WiFi connection to an access-point, the AP assigns an IP address for the device and also (sometimes slow) DNS servers via DHCP, an automation protocol for network configuration. If you want to use faster DNS servers on all APs but do not want to configure static IP address manually on each AP, this app will help.
This app requests IP address assignment as usual devices, then generates static IP configuration with your preferred DNS servers with assigned IP address..
To prevent collision of IP addresses, the generated configuration will be removed after disconnect from the AP or on the lease expiration of assigned address.

This app deeply relies on undocumented Android OS behaviors and implements.
Unfortunately, some devices cannot work with this app due to luck of programmable interface to control DNS settings.
Other WiFi management apps, which also try to configure WiFi settings or reconnect to another access-points, may conflict with this app. Please send us feedback if you found such conflicts.
Android L (5.0 lolipop) is NOT supported (yet). To get prerelease alpha version, please join google group https://groups.google.com/d/forum/wifistaticdns

If a device had connected with two or more access-points which have identical SSID (name of the WiFi spot) but with different passwords, this app will try to configure the oldest one.
Temporally dropped support for devices manufactured by "General Mobile". Please let me know if you have source code (or its distribution point) of customized Android OS shipped with their products.
