Connect To Your Favorite Networks With Ease With Quick Wifi Switcher for Android

Just how many times have you been happily connected to a wireless network just to find out that your Android device decided that there was something else around the area and connected to it without your approval? Maybe your place of employment or school has multiple access points that you have configured in your device, and because of this, your device may try to connect to the first one it sees even if it is not your first choice. If you are in a similar situation, then you are probably aware of the tediousness of going into Settings, then Wireless Settings, waiting for the networks list to populate, and so on. Luckily, XDA member slow23 decided to do something about this inconvenience and released Quick Wifi Switcher. This little app will allow you to switch seamlessly and effortlessly through your favorite and preconfigured access points. No more navigating through menus to show your device that you need to connect through that protected network as opposed to that pestering hp-setup ad-hoc.

The app is simple enough but the dev would still like to hear some feedback and thoughts regarding it. Please share your thoughts when you get a chance.

This is us https://www.xda-developers.com/wp-admin/edit.php eful, when you’re in an area where more than one configured AP is available. Sometimes Android decides to switch between them for different (unknown to me) reasons. Reconnection to the AP of your choice is now fewer clicks away than through the settings.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
