WiFi Manager 2.5.1, Bluetooth Widget 1.8.1

I know it’s taken me a long time, but the new version is finally here:

Full changelog:

  • Two new widget themes, styled after Android 4.0 (part of premium package).
  • Support for IP address and proxy server configuration for Android 3.0 and 4.0 (free functions).
  • Added widget to toggle WiFi Tethering
  • Adjusted widget sizes for a wider range of screens.
  • Support for EAP (802.11x) networks, Android 2.2 and higher.
  • A new way of connecting to networks, see app settings. Keeps all networks active, if you move out/in range (home/work etc.) your device should connect.
  • Easier IP address configuration for Andorid 2.* (when connecting for the first time).
  • Connection speed info in the main window (tap on the currently connected network; actual value is reported by the firmware).
  • Fixed Android 1.6 compatibility broken in 2.1.8 (sorry!)

Note: IP address and proxy configuration for Android 3.*/4.*, as well as EAP network support, use undocumented functions. May not work on some devices, depending on how extensive the manufacturer’s firmware changes are.

Version 2.5.0 had wrong widget widths on Android 1.6-2.1. Fixed in 2.5.1.

And now the same thing again, but this time in Russian:

  • Две новые визуальные темы для виджетов в стиле Андроида 4.0 (входят в платный пакет).
  • Поддержка конфигурации IP адреса и прокси сервера для Андроида 3.0 и 4.0 (бесплатные функции).
  • Добавил виджет для управления точкой доступа WiFi.
  • Коррекция размеров виджетов для более широкого набора экранов.
  • Поддержка сетей EAP (802.11x), на Андроиде 2.2 и выше.
  • Новый алгоритм подключения к сетям, включается в настройках. Все сети остаются активными, при выходе/входе в зону действия (дом/работа, etc.) должно быть подключение.
  • Более простая конфигурация IP адреса в Андроиде 2.* (сразу при подключении).
  • Отображение скорости соединения в основной программе (нажмите на сеть; зависит от прошивки).
  • Исправил совместимость с Андроидом 1.6, сломанную в 2.1.8 (извините!)

Учтите: для настроек IP адреса и прокси сервера на Андроиде 3.*/4.*, равно как и для работы с сетями EAP, используются недокументированные функции. Может не работать на некоторых устройствах, в зависимости от степени изменений прошивки, внесенных производителем.

Версия 2.5.0 неверно отображала виджеты, по ширине. Исправлено в 2.5.1.

    The program don’t switch automatically to a better signal wifi. How to implement this functionallity ? I have 4 wifi acces points at home, and all of them are recognized by the program, and it shows its status, but unfortunately, nevewr change automatically to the best signal wifi acces point. Of course the autoscanning function is active.

      Android doesn’t switch the connection in this case, and my app doesn’t have a function to do so either.

        I’m using the app WifiAutoConnect and it changes automatically from one to another Wifi Acces Point with no problems. I’d like the same feature in your good app because its presentation and information are better than WifiAutoConnect. Thank,s

    I don’t see the setting you’re referring to in the app options for “keep all networks active.” Can you tell me where it is? Thanks so much!

      If your Android version is 3.0 and higher, this is always enabled and therefore not presented as an option.

        Thanks, great! Has this been the case for awhile, or is it new in this version?
