This article reviews routing algorithms in heterogeneous wireless networks with the goal of including QoS awareness. After a general overview of the issues and challenges of QoS provisioning over heterogeneous networks, classic routing strategies are revisited, and how they can be exploited to achieve QoS efficiency is discussed. In particular, for the considered scenarios our proposal is to account for some proactivity in the routing algorithms, as well as a QoS-driven control selection, which are shown to improve throughput, delay, and energy consumption. Finally, we introduce a general backward utility formulation for user satisfaction as a tool to capture complex and dynamic QoS variations
