Helped with my WiFi issues Now I can keep my 5ghz up all the time. Phone does auto connect to 5gh sometimes. So if I drop signal I'll pick up 2.4 and this app will fix it in a few seconds. I am out maybe 2 seconds and that almost never affects you. Thank you!
Somewhat misses the point. If this can find a 5GHz only SSID it will disconnect you from your current 2.4GHz SSID and connect you to the 5GHz only one. The trouble is that's simple to do manually. What we need is for this to prefer 5GHz over 2.4GHz for combined 2.4 & 5GHz SSIDs. At least for me, it doesn't do that. :-( Maybe this is the best possible without rooting and low level hacks. I might use it anyway just because it can show which WiFi band is in use.
SGH-T999. Does not work. I use the SGH-T999, which is the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3. I'm using the stock Android 4.3. In my home office my 2.4GHz network is at about -45dBm and my 5GHz network is -49dBm. It's the same SSID and same encryption settings. My 5GHz band has better SNR. Also, my 5GHz AP supports 300 Mbps while my 2.4GHz AP only does 130 Mbps (only supports 20MHz wide channels.) So, it would be awesome if this app worked. I'm sorry to report, with my phone it sticks to the 2.4GHz signal. Maybe on other phones it works, don't know. I'll give it 2 stars because it has one usefull feature. It gives me an icon in the notification area telling me if I'm on 2.4 or 5 GHz. That's useful, but mainly just reminds me the app doesn't work and I'm still missing out on a better signal. This should really be fixed in the OS. 2.4GHz stinks and 5GHZ is vastly superior.
Stopped working in 6.0 Used to be a sweet app, because it at least favored 5Ghz connections. No fancy bells and whistles, but sadly this has become like a ton of other wifi priority apps. It stopped working, so check out Swifi which seems to be working in 6.0 . Google needs to build wifi priority into Android ASAP...
I use the same SSID for my 5.0 and 2.4 and it's annoying that my devices chose the 2.4 when they don't need it. This app helps to manage which network the device uses without me having to reconnect manually. Works great
No more notification after upgrade to 6.0 Worked fine before but now that my Xperia Z3plus upgraded to marshmallow I have no more notification. Switching did not work as I have the same ssid all over the house.
* fixed: sometimes app crashed after disabling wifi
* minor optimizations
* fixed: more reliable notifications
* new: App can display a notification displaying if you're connected to a 2,4Ghz or 5Ghz wifi
* fixed: Service sometimes crashed
* fixed: app didn't allow all access points when no favoured access point was available
* Service stops now if wifi is disabled
