About this app

Smart WiFi Selector - always the strongest WiFi connection!

You know the problem: although a strong WiFi signal is available nearby, your device is keeping the connection to a much weaker, more distant WiFi network. You have to disable and reenable WiFi on your device to force the strongest WiFi connection. Smart WiFi Selector puts an end to this situation! The strongest WiFi connection will always be established automatically.

Advantages over other WiFi Switcher apps:
* Smart WiFi Selector uses the (selectable) difference in signal strenght to decide when to switch to another WiFi. The connection to the new WiFi will happen if the signal is e.g. 20% stronger than the current signal. This eliminates the constant switching - and, with this, constant signal interruption - in the overlapping area of 2 WiFi networks.
* Selectable scan interval for the search for the strongest WiFi connection
* It's possible to exclude specific WiFi networks from scan
* Instant scan for the strongest WiFi connection when the screen gets switched on
* Favors 5GHz networks, if desired
* Sleep mode with own scan interval to save battery. The sleep mode can either be triggered by time or by the connection to specific WiFi networks. For example, if there are multiple WiFi networks at work, but only a single network at home, you may want to put your home network on the sleep mode list. As soon as you leave your home network, Smart WiFi Selector will enter the normal work mode.
* Option to switch to mobile data connection at poor WiFi signal strength

Because of all these benefits, Smart WiFi Selector is the most flexible and most battery-saving WiFi switcher-app in PlayStore!

The app is actually fairly sophisticated. The developer provided very detailed instructions. Make sure location is always in android settings and check stop scanning when no known wifi is available. Definitely worth the price! Update Android 13 Beta 4+ Pixel 6: This stopped working due to OS constraints. Now works great again even with Google FI which switches WIFI but much less frequently.

Great app! Worked right first time. Intuitive and backed up with excellent Help. Now I can go to my bathroom, and back, without two manual interventions on my phone! And the price is a bargain. Thanks, Alexander! ‐‐‐-----------------' It's two years later now and I have a new Samsung F21 5G. It doesn't switch automatically. I install SmartWiFi and ... nothing. Doesn't switch between WiFis. I'm pretty default settings, it's Enabled. Nothing. Manual switching works fine. So, now what? Help!

5/17/22: Outstanding! 3/21/21: Still perfect! 1/18/21: EXACTLY what the doctor prescribed! I have several access points inside and outside my home and a wireless router, all on different channels but the same SSID on both 2.5ghz and 5ghz. Previously I would have to dis / reconnect to get the faster 5ghz WiFi. This software gets rid of that hassle, beautifully, always connecting to the faster 5ghz, and always points to the strongest signal!

What's new

* Issues a warning via notification bar when the app has to be opened to complete service restart (e.g. after the service got killed by the battery management).
* Suggests ALL stored networks at once when the app service gets killed in background (battery management), to make the device able to establish a WiFi connection, even when the app is disfunctional. SmartWiFiSelector will continue to switch between the networks as usual.
