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 does do what it advertised but causes issues at times. When it is enabled ro run it causes the ONE UI on Samsung to issue an error. It does not hurt the phone but you need to respond. This app also causes issues where the wifi connection does not occur at times. I need to manually select the wifi on my phone to have a wifi connection. Otherwise, it stays on cellular. I have found that this app only benefits when I am at home. Users with a mesh based network probably doesn't need it.

Update caused it to no longer work. Has this been tested with Android 10? Read and followed all directions. Familiar with setting this up. Have used for years. Deleted all system connections and only added through app. Gave Android permission to allow Smart WiFi suggestions. Cleared all cache and data. Enabled location permissions, even uninstalled / reinstalled. Will no longer connect.

Of course it has been tested with Android 10, it worked very well for me. I also got several reports from users with Android 10 and Samsung devices who have no issues.

Not what I had hoped... Router at one side of large ranch, when I walk to other side I lose signal from router. I have a high quality mesh extender that it does connect to automatically, but when I walk back to the router side it will never automatically switch back from extender to router. I've tried everything. I have app set to change if signal is only 5% stronger but it won't, even though my phone shows extender signal is at 2 bars & router signal is full. I have to do it manually. Bummer

Read the help carefully and follow all instructions, then it will work. Most important, delete the networks from the device settings and exclude the app from battery optimization.
