WiFi Prioritizer

WiFi Prioritizer


WiFi Prioritizer aims to solve a simple problem by attempting to automatically reconnect to a higher priority wireless network when it comes in range while still being connected to a lower priority wireless network.

Simply drag the networks in the desired sequence and the app will take care of the rest. The default values are pulled from what's set in the system WifiManager. Android will honour those priorities only when it's establishing a fresh WiFi connection. So to help the system WiFi Prioritizer will also update those priorities (if the option is enabled) when you re-order the networks.

I wrote this application for my personal use but figured that if I have this problem, then surely there are other people out there with the same problem.

Please feel free to send feedback, suggestions or feature requests.

***NOTICE***
If you have issues with an update. You're welcome to roll back using the APKs available on my site: http://wifiprioritizer.flash.za.org/download/all-versions

NB. Make sure your WIFI sleep policy is set to ALWAYS (Under WIFI settings -> Advanced settings) to avoid unnecessary connect/reconnect when the "Enabling WIFI at start of refresh" option is enabled.

Gets the job done. No complaints. Where I live, there are lots of open public networks. These networks are useful when I am outside my apartment. But when I am at home, I want to connect to my private network, which is much faster. This app makes sure that happens. I've used it for 3 weeks and have not noticed any problems.

Amazing! There simply isn't another app I know of in existence that you can use to automatically connect to (even if you're on a "good" connection) a different wifi connection based on priority. Amazing! Working on Android 4.4.4, Samsung Note 4

Forgotten Networks Come Back to Life This app works well to change priority but I'm seeing one odd issue. I removed a network and its associated password by selecting "forget" in the Android WiFi settings. Then, I went back to this app and noticed the forgotten network was still listed on the main screen. Even stranger is that this forgotten network was then reconnected to by this app. Going back to the WiFi settings, the network was listed again as "Saved". Weird.
