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.

Great App. Fixed Lollipop Moto X issue My 2014 Moto X had change over issue from mobile data to WiFi. Wifi would show "authentication problem" when arriving at office or home. After installing this App, --poof-- no more issue!

Works well, except for deal breaker bug, and lack of 5GHz bias Bug: If the "Update System Priorities" option was Enabled, then after rebooting the phone, I lose my WiFi priority customizations. Missing feature: No way to set a dBm bias to favor 5GHz networks with same SSID as 2.4GHz networks. Otherwise the app works well.
