Premium features

WiFi Manager has several premium features, available for purchase for $1.75 as a single package right in the application using Google Wallet.

Important: Google will store your order under your account. This means you only pay once even if you later install new firmware / reset your phone / get a new one. The application will restore your existing order and activate again, as many times as necessary.

1 – Two new widget themes, inspired by Android 5.0 (Material Design), with transparency support.

These can be previewed for free by installing my Bluetooth Widget.

2 – You can use the WiFi Network Switcher widget to switch among your favorite WiFi networks with a single tap. The widget will enable WiFi if necessary, switch to a fixed or dynamic IP configuration as configured for that particular network, and connect.

3 – You can assign your own descriptions and icons (from a predefined set). You can also use fixed IP addresses with individual networks (On Android 2.*, the system settings apps can’t provide per-network IP address assignments, so this is a premium feature in WiFi Manager; Android 3.* and 4.* lets you do this, so this feature in WiFi Manager is free).

The assigned network descriptions can be used in the app’s widgets.

4 – You can exclude networks from the live scan list, which can be useful if your neighbors have routers too.

How to buy

All the above features are available for purchase right in the application, as a single “Premium” package. Order processing is handled by Google Wallet. My application never ever sees your credit card information.

    I only need automatic switching between my router and 2 extenders in my secure network. Is this an option in pro?

    So I want to prioritize in those network access points that it will connect to the strongest automatic.

    What do you mean by ‘below 40 db ? Is 41 below or 39? I thought the lower the better.

    Kind regards

      Re: extenders. If they have same SSID (but distinct BSSIDs) – sorry WiFi Manager doesn’t understand that. I’m working on a new version with a fix. It’s slow going (weekend project) but it’ll get there.

      Re: below. Below means “worse”. So the setting is -40dbm, the app will consider switching if the current connection is -41dbm or -45dbm or -50dbm, but not when it’s -39dbm.

        That’s a clear and quick response
        Thanks

    A well designed, useful app- many thanks. But recently, the wdget fails to update, both on a tablet (Marshmallow) and a phone (Nougat). It displays the SSID and speed of the prior network. Clearing the app cache does not resolve the issue.

      WiFi Manager hasn’t been updated since Dec 2015, so the issue most likely has to do with some sort of “battery optimizer” that you’re using on your phone and tablet.

      Could be a built-in thing, for example, both Huawei and Xiaomi devices have those, enabled by default (and other manufacturers may too). For both Huawei and Xiaomi, there is a way to set an app as “protected” or “excluded” from these “battery optimizations”.

        You are completely right. Both the phone (Samsung) and the tablet (Asus) have power management features. Disabling those for Wifi Manager solved the problem. I would never have thought of that. Many, many thanks.

    Could you add different icons in the notification bar for different ssids?

    • February 28, 2017 at 8:52 pm

      Maybe. If I can find enough good (high res) icons 🙂

  4. February 28, 2017 at 8:24 am

    Is it possible to see the different AP’s thatshare the same SSID? SO far I love the app (free) and considering the pro for that very reason.

      Sorry not in the currently release version. I am working on an update where this will be possible (but this is a hobby / weekend project, so progress is not very fast).

    There are other apps that show a different icon in the notification bar when you’re connected to different ssids. It makes it very useful at a glance to see which you’re connected to.

    I’d rather not have to use two apps, she just use yours though as it does everything else so well.

    • December 18, 2016 at 3:48 pm

      There is a feature to assign an icon to a network (long press on a network in the app’s main window) -> do you think I should use these same icons (if one is assigned)?

        Hi Kostya,

        Yes, you could use the same icons, and maybe add some more for choice! That would be excellent.

      • December 18, 2016 at 4:11 pm

        I’ll write it down. Thank you Daniel.

    I too would like to differentiate between APs with the same SSID.

    Can I buy premium anyway in the UK? I can’t see how.

      Re: SSID/BSSID – sorry the released version doesn’t understand this, but yes I am interested in fixing it.
      Re: purchasing – Menu -> about premium features will take you to the purchase screen.

      Sorry this is not supported. A bug / shortcoming, I know. My apologies.
