On my S5, I was getting a screen overlay error after install. The app would start, then not display anything. After messing around with screen overlay permissions, I discovered that no permissions had been granted tot he app on install. Not sure if I had skipped that part of the install, or if the app did not fully install. After assigning correct app permissions (to wifi, phone and storage) it works as advertised.
slow since summer updates In previous versions the file generation/export took minutes, now takes hours! on 2.3.6 and 5.1 android too. fast phone 3gb ram/octa core. What happened? 140k db. copied the wiglewifi folder from old phone to new.
After updating to version 2.16 although I can still upload using the app (verified by checking my statistics directly on the website) the results do not show in the "Uploads" or "Rankings" or "User Statistics" sections of the app. That is, the app is not reflecting updated statistics gathered and seems to be broken in that regard. Tried uninstall and reinstall - the app would open but wouldn't run and displayed no information at all, until I manually set permissions relating to screen overlay. I certainly don't remember having to do that in the past. But the reinstall didn't change the problem regarding no updated statistical information, which problem persists. I'd like to revert to a working version of the app, say 2.15 which worked fine: how to do that?
Uh oh. Another great app slides into Android hell. "Screen overlay detected", this error message sends me to settings, but I cannot enable proper permission to allow Wigle to draw over other apps (and why should I need to, since this app worked fine for years before today?).
This app is pretty cool.....I'm still totally unsure what it is I'm actually doing haha....but as I drive around my neighborhood it's plotting points of the wireless networks awesomely.....onto the google maps integrated in the app....seems pretty nifty....but yea, not totally sure what the point is, as most of them are secured WPA networks (which is a GOOD thing, considering I'm in an older retiree area LOL.....)..works flawless on my Galaxy J7
