With “WiFi Priority“ it is finally possible to prioritize to which available network to connect first!

Generally all iOS devices rank available WiFi networks alphabetically and connect to the topmost known network in that list first. However, there are situations in which you may want to avoid that and prefer to connect to another known network instead. This is where “WiFi Priority“ comes to your aid. It simply lets you disable the auto-join function for selected networks and thus prioritize the one that you prefer by creating and installing a configuration profile on the device.

Instead of making your device forget the topmost networks you can now prevent them from automatically connecting first. Just enter the network information for the networks you don’t want to auto-connect and let “WiFi Priority“ do the rest. Afterwards your preferred available network will always connect first and you will still be able to use the other networks by just tapping on them in your network list.

This is the way apps should work


There are a number of negative reviews here, but those seem to have been written by people who do not understand the purpose and function of this app.
My situation was this: I have home Wi-Fi and recently added an outdoor access point to get the Wi-Fi extended to my new shelter house, which is more than 200 feet from the house. That access point required the creation of a new Wi-Fi network - different name and different password than the one in the house.
The problem this created was that my iPhone would randomly switch between the two networks, but I didn’t want it to. It sometimes switches to the outdoor network, but when I am in the back of the house, that signal is very weak compared to the indoor Wi-Fi. Yet my phone stayed with the weaker signal. So I had to keep checking which network I was on, and frequently had to switch networks to get the best signal.
This app resolved the problem. My phone will stay connected to the indoor network and I no longer have to keep checking for which network I am on while in the house. When I go to the shelter house, it’s a simple matter of switching to the outdoor Wi-Fi network.
This app has a very specific function, which it performs very well. Very easy to set it up, and it works like a charm. 5 stars without a doubt.

Does exactly what it says


Yes, the app name is a little misleading, but this app does exactly what it says in its description. The update that just came out fixed a bug that was preventing new from installing the profiles it creates.

I use several wifi networks with equipment at work that are airgapped with no access to the internet. I don't use them all day every day, and it's a real pain to either set them up every time I need them or constantly be digging around in settings to get off of them. This does exactly what I need - well worth the investment.

App does not do as title suggests

Fun but irritating game

Like another reviewer stated, and I read after the fact, the title is misleading. This doesn't prioritize networks, but rather prevents you from automatically connecting to certain networks if you so choose. I was expecting an app that let me create a list of networks and the order in which to join them if multiple were available. I wanted something to eliminate my input in which network I connected to. This does not do that. My own fault though for not reading the description and looking at the screenshots :/
