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!

Very useful and I strongly recommend it. As I have two networks in two different floors I need a quick automatic switch to the best signal. The app does it perfectly. Edit: I had service restarts after installling the paid version. The developer's diagnosis was correct, I needed to the set the battery optimization for the app to UNRESTRICTED. I believe after Samsung's last Android update it was reset. Or I missed it. So double check this setting if you see service restarts. Thanks!

Very likely you have missed some setting. Did you set battery to unrestricted? I'm permanently testing the app on Galaxy A22 (Android 12) and the service virtually NEVER gets killed.

This actually works great! Auto selects the strongest of my 2 Wi-Fi access points at home, so I don't have to manually switch. I broke the house into 2 zones, each with an access point, so there would always be a strong signal throughout the property. And this app decides which to connect to. Thanks to the developer for this affordable utility.

Like a charm. Just works. The options can be a bit daunting for someone not familiar with the WiFi terminology, but look it up. Learn about what your phone or tablet is capable of. This should be standard operating procedure for all devices. Needless to say, phone companies don't get it right all the time, and that's where this little gem of an app comes in. Smart WiFi Selector can make life better for you. All the waiting, wondering what's wrong with your connection, is gone.
