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.

Best app for prioritizing wifi connections. I have tried many and this one works the best and the ability to set the threshold for when to connect as well as when to drop the connection is great. I emailed the dev to ask if this app still performs its functions when the screen is off, and if so, to request an option to set the scanning interval separately for when the screen is off. I want it to check every 30 seconds when the screen is on, but I don't want it waking my device every 30 seconds when the screen is off. I'd prefer to set it to like 15m.

Does what I need, most of the time Lately the notification tells me I'm connected to hotspot A when I'm connected to B. It "switches" even if my phone doesn't move. I think enabling the connection check was a mistake.
