Displays the different wifi networks in a tidy visual way

Having used this app for 2 years on and off; I have the following to say:
This app has a lot of potential; as of pr today it displays the different wifi networks; and their attributes in a tidy visual way,
and helps you make deciscions for optimizing your network.

My reason for 3/5 is that the price is off the Richter's scale for what it does. I find no impediment to the functionality of the application, as such it is a 5/5. Did I hear USD 4.97?

It just works

Tried a couple of free apps like WiFi Scanner, KisMAC and it doesn't seem to work for me. This app just works!
