SWARM - Automatic WiFi

SWARM - Automatic WiFi


Automatic, hands free, no hassle, WiFi.

Detection, selection and connection, at the right time and place. Always be connected!

Why search for available Wi-Fi on your own when SWARM can do it for you? Why burn through your data plan when Wi-Fi is available? Concerned about a specific network? Just add it to SWARM's ignore list and it's gone! Discover and then avoid those pesky Captive Portals and opt-in to them when you want.

Intelligent handoff, No RF dragging. On roaming-capable networks: Better VOIP. Don't drop that Wi-Fi call while traversing a roaming network due to RF dragging. Works on secured and open networks.

Comcast customers. Never miss the opportunity to offload. Automatically utilizes Xfinity signal clouds that you pass through every day. Takes away the nuisance of connecting to weak signal or not disconnecting when there are better options. Will automatically initiative hard handoff in clustered environment.

Dynamic power calibration to your activity, never worry about leaving this app on. Will dynamically decay foraging algorithms when the device is still or if you are driving. Picks back up when the device is moving such as when you are walking or on the bike. Throw it in your purse at work or on the train, it will go to sleep.

SWARM v1.8 capabilities include:
- 5.0 Compatibility
- Activity Recognition - dynamic power recalibration
- Heuristic based infusion algorithm for propagating network qualities across network AP clusters
- Continuous consideration of the most optimal network, even in the background
- Automatic detection, selection, and connection to available Wi-Fi networks
- Ignore list for avoiding unwanted connections
- Captive portal
-- Paywall identification.
-- Auto-disconnect.
-- Allow List for preferred Captive Portal networks
- Aggression bar! To calibration power consumption.
- No Ads!

Recent changes:
SWARM v1.8.0
- 5.0 compatible. 100% improvement on power consumption. Aggression dynamically decays according to activity. Leave it running! Slows scan when not moving or in the car.

SWARM v1.7.3
- Introducing infusion algorithm. Now when you indicate any setting; Ignore Captive Portal, Enable Captive Portal, and Back List, it will be propagated to any adjoining Access Point as you move.

SWARM v1.7.2
- Revised state machine. Incorporates new Wifi states from Android libraries
- Bug fixes

Lean, fast Wi-Fi connect I've used several Wifi auto connect apps, and so far SWARM is my favorite by far. Reliably auto connects me to available open networks, even with my Republic Wireless Moto X in my pocket, and avoids those which won't dispatch me an ip address. Note if you find yourself disconnected from your home network, your phone's system software may have a wpa bug like mine. Try disabling wpa, that solved the issue for me. This IS NOT SWARM's fault.

Awesome Does exactly what it says. My one complaint is the lack of blacklist options. If you could set it to a whitelist mode to automatically connect between a predefined list of networks, the app would be less of a security risk.

Security vuln There is a reason phones don't auto connect to open wifi, it is a security vulnerability for mitm. Instantly removed.
