Ratings and Reviews
Not NetSpot’s Fault
Apple, in the interest of privacy and security, has locked down everything; the ability to scan surrounding networks and map signal strength and channels being one of them.
On the one hand it’s ridiculous that can’t be done on my phone, on the other hand, unrelated apps tracking this info may have gotten too much and I appreciate the extra security precautions/restrictions Apple has placed on IOS.
So, I can’t rate this app a low score for requiring a separate USB device to do something with the iPhone that would normally use iPhone hardware.

App helps to build wifi heatmaps and measure wifi internet speed, works well, but limited…
I did not expect they would do that, but they did. For a long time, this app had a 1-star rating because to use it, you had to buy an additional, expensive hardware device. But with this release, they somehow managed to visualize WiFi and create heat maps using just an iPhone, and it's really free. What I didn't like is that the app looks like a beta version, not a full-featured release. It lacks any settings and offers just two features: WiFi Internet Speed Test and WiFi HeatMaps. So, don't expect to deal with a full-featured WiFi Analyzer. But overall, I would say it deserves a 5-star rating
No instructions; can’t get to work
First, there are no instructions. If you’re going to have an app the functions on intuitive steps, the steps need to be intuitive.
I set up a project, imported a map, defined distance and took the first reading. Then moved to a second point. The locator moved automatically and I got a 2nd reading. But when I moved to a third point, the indicator did not follow. “Scan” was non-functional. I manually moved the map so the new point (why did I have to do that and not for the 2nd point?). Still no functional scan. After multiple tries, finally a message appeared saying no signal. But I did have a signal (both WiFi and cellular). Tried all this again. Same result. No idea what to do. Gave up….
