Fed up of "Avoided poor Internet Connection" error on your Android? "WiFi Connection Fixer" is your solution!
Not just that it might fix few other WiFi problems as well, we're not sure but give it a shot!
This app needs ROOT (Superuser) access to work.
In many ROMs including CyanogenMod / AOKP / Other Custom ROMs many times you get "Avoided poor Internet Connection" message while trying to connect to your WiFi even when the signal is good. This app will help you connect in such situations.
If it worked for you, RATE FIVE STARS! :)
(Declaimer: ROOT App - Use wisely. We're not responsible for ANY damage caused!)
It just might succeed where other apps have failed.
Currently 12-09-2012, according to the success vs unsuccess reports our success rate is 52% out of total reports.
Having a Wi-Fi problem ?
Your Wi-Fi stopped working or seems broken?
If you are about to do a factory reset - try this application first, it might heal your device!
No promises made, no guaranties, but it has been tested on some devices with a malfunctioned WiFi which otherwise required factory reset and fixed the problem.
Here is the current list of devices which success reports were sent on:
HTC Desire / HD / Evo / G1 / Glacier / Hero / Magic / Legend / G2 / One
Motorola Droid / Milestone
Samsung GT-i5510 / GT-i5700 / GT-5800 / GT-i9000 / GTi9000M / GT-P1000 / SPH-M900 / SGH-i896 / SGH-i897 / SGH-T959 / SHW-M110S / SHW-M130 / SPH-D700 / SPH-M900 / SPH-M910 / SPH-M920 / S / S2 / S3
Sony Ericsson E15i / X10i
Unlike other Wi-Fi fix applications it does not run as a service on the backround, it does not add any cpu load, it does not consume your battery.
Just one click - activate it, let it do its magic, wait for a few seconds (up to about one minute) and thats it!
Please note - if your hardware is broken there isn't any software which can fix that. This app solves problems in Android OS which cause the Wi-Fi to stop working properly.
It is recommended installing this app now that your Wi-Fi does work so it will be available if Wi-Fi stopped working and your 3G is expensive.
Fixing wifi is just the first phase - in the near future we plan to add GPS and bluetooth fixing.

This app should work around this issue. Keep in mind that the app is in a early stage of development. Detection of best interval for your setup needs to improved. It also can be that the app uses a bit more battery than without. On my device it's not the case.
The issue in general depends on your mobile and your router. It can be that a mobile is working while another one isn't working on the same router. Also a mobile can work with a router while it's not working with another router. Confused? yeah, it's complicated.
It works for met at least for my favorite app "mysms", but it should also fix the issue for other apps that use GCM (Gmail, WhatsApp, MightyText, ....).

Wi-Fi Matic is an Android app that activates and deactivates Wi-Fi of your device automatically depending on your location, helping you to save battery and consumption of data through your operator network.
It detects automatically the location of known Wi-Fi networks (f.i: home, office, etc.), turns on Wi-Fi when you arrive a place where there is Wi-Fi, and turns it off when you leave that place.
After some training (*), the app should learn all your commonly used Wi-Fi access points, allow your device to use Wi-Fi in the usual places and keep Wi-Fi off where it is not needed.
- How does it work?
It DOES NOT USE GPS nor Android network location services, as it uses your operator network cell identifiers (cell tower identifiers) as the relative location where you are, and where your Wi-Fi networks are. It is designed to minimize usage of resources and battery.
Wi-Fi Matic detects and learns automatically locations where you are connected to a Wi-Fi, not needing much configuration. It also allows you to manage manually your Wi-Fi when needed not interfering with you or with your device data connections.
- How is it used?
1.- Run the app and click on "Enable Wi-Fi Matic".
2.- If you want to connect to a Wi-Fi for the first time, do it as usual in the Android Wireless networks settings menu. If you want to connect to a Wi-Fi you have already connected to before, just turn on Wi-Fi manually and let Android establish connection.
3.- And that's all: Wi-Fi Matic will learn your Wi-Fi location when you get connected. Whenever you leave that place, Wi-Fi will be automatically turned off and whenever you get back, Wi-Fi will be automatically turned on (*)
(*) Depending on your mobile carrier network configuration and your access point signal strength, Wi-Fi Matic might need some time to precisely learn all needed cell tower identifiers and work accurately. Check Frequently Asked Questions.
Instead contact us on insomnia(at)gosar.de. The rating is useless for feedback as it provides no email address for us to contact you for details about feature request etc.
Stay connected to the strongest available WIFI, including unknown, but unsecured networks. That's the main task of Wifi Jumper!
The complete feature list:
- Automatically connect to the strongest available WIFI (scaninterval configurable)
- Even unknown, but unsecured networks can be used automatically (configurable)
- Messages and icons in status bar (configurable)
- Autostart after boot (configurable)
- Optional: create Wifi Zones based on one or more Radio Cells to automatically start and stop Wifi Hardware.
- Automatically adds new Radio Cells to known Wifi Zones while connected to WIFI
- Show Zone on Map (if Google Maps is installed)
- Optional: define "Airplane Mode Timezones" with the "Airplane Mode Scheduler" to automatically start/stop airplane mode (DOES NOT WORK WITH ANDROID >= 4.2 !!!)
- Saves an high amount of energy if all features are used
- Easy to use
- Multilingual (german, english)
- no support for custom roms!
- wifi zones work only on devices with telephony features
- Due to new restrictions by Google, the airplane mode scheduler is not working with android >= 4.2
Wifi Jumper automatically connects your device to the strongest available known WIFI network. Unknown, but unsecured networks are also supported to be connected to. Additionally, one can define "WIFI Zones" based on the current radiocell, in which your WIFI hardware will automatically be activated.
Leaving a Wifi Zone, Wifi Jumper will turn off WIFI hardware and saves energy. New cell-Ids for already defined Wifi Zones are added automatically while connected to a known WIFI.
In order to save even more energy, you are able to define timezones in which the airplanemode will be automatically (de-)activated. The advantages are not limited to energy saving: no radiation and disturbance while sleeping. Wifi Jumper is the perfect solution for many minor issues, but in only one app.
Note: Wifi Jumper uses android functionality that didn't support App2SD. We strongly recommend to make no use of App2SD!
Wifi Jumper needs the following permissions (reason):
- Location (determine position of WIFI Location on a map)
- Telephony (gather system-id)
- System utilities (autostart, airplanemode start/stop, WIFI start/stop)
- Networking (license check, scan for networks und status)
Note: Please give us a chance to improve Wifi Jumper. Let us know about any bad experiences and problems with Wifi Jumper before leaving any bad comments. We work hard to fix any issues reported by our customers. Thank you very much!
It can also show Wi-Fi access point information, toggling Wi-Fi ON/OFF, and switch access point.
Widget style can be selected from "rabbit" or "cat".

1. Signal strengh
2. Channel number
3. Security type
4. Link speed
5. Hardware vendor
6. IP number, and etc.
You can see which one is good and bad intuitively, and it is very easy to use.
WiFi Picker also supports notification feature.
If you don't have ROOT check PNF no-root on my other apps.
Do you have delayed push notifications with GTalk/Hangouts, GMail, Whatsapp (partial fix), Facebook, Play Store web install, etc?
This app its for you! It's FREE and with NO banners! Consider a donation from the app.
What this app does?
This app change the heartbeats interval numbers. The heartbeat interval is the android keep-alive mechanism to keep the push connection alive by sending a little network packet every x minutes. PNF only update that interval number. By keeping alive the push connection (for example every 5 minutes), push notifications will be instantly.
You do NOT need to set 1 minute...You will always receive instantly push notifications.
Don't rate bad! If you have problems or doubts, send me an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and I will answer you as soon as possible.

● How to use?
Install, accepts superuser permissions, choose your intervals, press apply and enjoy. Mobile heartbeat must be bigger than the wifi one, once you applied the settings, the heartbeats are permanently changed and survive to reboots.
● The problem (read this for better understanding):
Apps like GTalk/Hangouts, GMail, Whatsapp (partially push), Facebook Messenger, etc, use google's push service (GCM) through one TCP shared connection on the port 5228 between your phone and google servers.
To keep this connection alive, android by default use a periodic heartbeat (a small network data packet) which is used to avoid the connection timeout. Unfortunately this heartbeat by default occurs only every 15 minutes on wifi and every 28 minutes on 3G.
What may happen for most users is that the wifi router or the mobile carrier can automatically close/terminate this connection after some SHORT time of inactivity, for example when you are not sending / receiving any push notification.
For how the push notifications works, your phone is not aware that this connection was externally closed, so this is the reason why you will have no push notifications until this connection get re-established by android, when the next HeartBeat is sent.
● The solution in my app:
This app ( PNF ) ONLY update this heartbeat interval (stored on the GSF database inside android data partition) to the value of your choice, in order to maintain the push service connection (GCM) alive.
The recommended value is 5 minutes since its should be enough short for every user. This value will allow you to always receive instantly notifications.
This app does NOT run in background.
Shortening the heartbeat interval to 5 minutes should not have a big impact on the battery life at all.
This app is provided with no warranty. You are responsible for what you are doing on your phone.
● How to restore the default heartbeat interval value
Before to uninstall PNF choose the setting "Restore default heartbeats" in the app.
