Psiloc Connect Brings Access Point Prioritisation For S60

Zach from over at SiMo brings news that Psiloc has just released one of the most useful apps you will ever see, Psiloc Connect. What is does is something that should have been implemented already – access point prioritisation i.e. the phone will use access points in the order you choose without having to manually select them each time. For example I can setup the phone to use my home WiFi as the first option, if not available my neighbour’s WiFi (;)), next my operator’s data (3G, EDGE or GPRS) connection and so on in any order I so choose. For this to happen we were supposed to wait for FP2, however Psiloc has decided to make that option available now and that too for all existing S60’s. (According to Ricky, E61, E61i users will need to wait and the company is working on a solution)

It simply creates a new access point called ‘Psiloc Connect’ that you will need to set as default for all/any application(s), set the priority in the settings and you are good to go. You can select more than one WiFi connection also for say times when you want to make the phone check for your home and office WiFi before moving onto operator data. You can even stop the operator data from being used in case you are roaming or due to any other reason. All in all a highly customisable nifty utility.

The application is available from the Psiloc store, and costs US$15.77 (EUR9.95). More screenshots below (courtesy of Zach).

From Psiloc:

Psiloc Connect allows you to connect to the Internet in a smart and convenient way. By defining the Psiloc Connect access point in any application you prioritize the way that application connects to the Internet. Psiloc Connect will choose the best available WLAN connection, if no WLAN is available, it will connect though the 3G/GSM access point defined in the application, or if you please it will only use WLAN connections to keep you connected.

Key features of Psiloc Connect:

  • Psiloc Connect always makes sure you use the fastest possible connection.
  • Psiloc Connect allows you to save some money, by not using 3G data connectivity when WLAN is available.
  • Psiloc Connect handles access point switching in the background for you, no more of that tedious tasks.
