I am trying to use Android apps which require low level access to the WiFi/WLAN interface, but I fail as those apps obviously can't connect to the WiFi system.

I call it "low level" as I'm not quite sure where the problem is located, that Android apps like

WiFi Analyzer or Monzoon WorldFlat

don't work, as they require access to WiFi for scanning access points, evaluating SSID's etc. Sounds for me a bit similar like camera access, which did not work for Android apps at the beginning, but got solved after the last "flood of updates" for OS and certain apps :)

Tried Wifi Analyzer too. Would be good, if it was possible for Alien Dalvik, however, I'd prefer a native WLAN scanner app for Sailfish.

on my Android, I really liked to use "Fing". This also fails horribly in aliendalvik. :(

I would like to use VPN on my Jolla. The android app GoVPN just does not work.

Seems to me that there are problems with every Android app and wlan. For example Netflix works with 3G, doesn't find any connection when wlan is also enabled, or only wlan is in use. That's kind of strange, since it used to work only with wlan at the start (if my memory serves right).
