    Does anyone know of an app that automatically detects strongest wifi signal and switches to it ?

    I have a wifi gateway and an extender on the other side of the house. I have to manually switch my wifi setting.

    Same problem for me in my office - we have 3 or 4 networks and I have to switch wifi off and back on to connect to the strongest one if I've moved from one end to the other.
    My old SGSII, Blackberry and Nokia all changed by themselves ......

    Hi

    Best WIFI by pintac in the play store looks to fit the bill ( I have not tried it as I have only one wifi available)

    Thanks a lot Roger,
    I installed Best WIFI this morning and it seems to do the job!
    Easy. Hopefully there will be no downside to the app - It seems pretty unobtrusive.

    Best Wifi works most of the time. However the annoying thing for me was that when away from home, it would always continue to search and tell me my ssid is unavailable. In some area of my house where multiple signals are available, Best Wifi would constantly disconnect and reconnect even after i set the signal strength to 10. this would cause page loads or whatever data to end abruptly and is super annoying.

    Since i started using NFC i found work-around by creating three different NFC tasks to connect to each of my three signals. With the three corresponding NFC widgets on my home screen I can single-tap to switch between the three signals since i know which signal is the strongest at the room I'm in. This would work even if you're not using NFC chips since the widget simply tells the phone to connect to a specific ssid.
