Ratings and Reviews
Note- This version is old
Be aware that this is an old version of the software. I am waiting to hear from the developers company as to what I purchased here in the Apple App Store, and the free version on the developers’ website, and if there is any refund for this $7.99 old version.
Great tool I have been using for a while
I have been using this tool for a while to map out network coverage around my home. For that purpose it is indespensible. I don't really need any of the features in the paid version, but I figured I'd support the developer with a purchase of home version. I was however a bit disapointed to find out that even after purchasing, you need a much more expensive version to do the simple task of assigning an alias to your access points. Come on guys..one star off.
Great tool overall. All you need is your mac and this software to complete a WiFi survey. After a walking around it provides a heat map showing signal and the signal to noise ratio. It also shows any other networks in the area. So its easy to see what networks may be causing interference around you.
