I had to push this version out quickly as I managed to mess up some of the core functionality in my latest attempts to optimise and clean up the code :-/

Version 1.1.2 now in the Play Store

Version 1.1.0 now in the Play Store

posted Apr 15, 2013, 1:12 PM by Robert Botha

I've decided to bump up the minor version because with this release I've basically rewritten a huge chunk of the logic engine to be more battery friendly.
I've also changed some of the settings text to be more user friendly and less ambiguous.
Lastly, I've included a potential fix for the 802.1X/EAP configs getting lost when sync system priorities is switched on. Please send me feedback if you had this problem.

Added option to set the low signal level. While the current connected network's signal is stronger than this, the app won't start the re-connect process. Set this to 100 to force old behaviour.
