WiFi Manager

WiFi Manager


Find, connect, manage WiFi networks. Improve connection quality with a graphical channel radar. Discover open networks around you.

Includes home screen widgets: one displays detailed connection info, another lets you switch among your favorite networks with a single tap, and yet another toggles WiFi Access Point.

Can scan for and switch to the best network out of several configured.

New and improved:

• A UI redesign (version 3.0): modern looking icons, swiping between list and radar views;

• Assign your own descriptions and icons to individual WiFi networks - never forget what that "XYZ1234" network is;

• Switch among your favorite networks with a single tap by using the WiFi Network Switcher widget. It will even enable WiFi if needed.

• "Best network" to switch between different networks you may have around the house or office (off by default, enable in app settings);

• Automatic switching between fixed and dynamic (DHCP) IP addresses (Android Settings in 2.* can't do this);

Some features require that you purchase the $1.75 premium package, available right in the application through Google Checkout (safe, secure).

These features are: advanced per-network options (description, icon, IP address), the one-tap network widget, and two widget themes inspired by Android 4.0.

All the other - essential - features are free: the widget with detailed connection info (four sizes, two free themes), scanning and connecting to networks, the network list view, the network signal radar.

Orders are processed and saved by Google and can be reactivated after a phone reset / flash, or on a new phone.

About requested permissions:

"Change system settings" is needed to switch between fixed and dynamic IP addresses, if configured so.

"Prevent phone from sleeping" is needed so you can enable automatic scanning and discover open networks around you.

"Read USB storage" for notifications about open networks, when enabled, and the sound file is picked from the memory card.

"Market billing service" is needed to make purchases.

Since version 2.5, supports per-network IP address and proxy server settings on Android 3.* / 4.*, included in the free version.

3.0

A UI redesign, with holo colors, flat icons, swiping between list and radar. Woo-hoo!

A setting to exclude networks from the list by regular expressions.

Fearlessly increased Android version requirement from 1.6 to 2.1.

Fixed crashes with "open network" sound on external SD card (had to add a permission, READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE).

Fixed issues with static IPs on Android 4.*

Works well We have 2 routers in the house, and reception can vary. This makes it easier to check which is stronger. I like that the app lets you filter for Known Networks, rather than the default of all nets. And use the widget!
