Quality of wifi signal

This app "appears" to give valuable information when attempting to measure the strength of your wifi signal (that is the measurement of strength between your wifi router and your device (phone, computer, iPad, tablet, etc), NOT YOUR ISP. I'm gathering it pings and sends packets to the IP of your router to measure to calculate a result. There is some latency encountered and to get an accurate reading I would suggest spending at least a minute in one location before moving to another. It might also be prudent to keep your finger on the record button and let the app avg the poll data.

That said as far as how exact the measurements are hard to tell. Would welcome from the makers of this application an explanation as to how they are measuring the strength of the signal.

In addition, it would be useful to take the plotted points using gps data and map them to a google map and connect a line between the points so I can see the path I walked on a map with the corresponding wifi data. It would be so much more useful at being able to visualize the results. This doesn't need to be realtime rather it can be generated after the recorded values are saved.

Beyond that at face value it appears to do a good job.

It helped my diagnose internet issues

We’ve all had the experience of being disappointed by a product or service and consequently left a negative review. Therefore, I believe it important to leave a positive review when you find a product that exceeds your expectations. This app was critical to diagnosing Internet issues in my home. Rather than spend a lot of money buying new hardware and hoping Wi-Fi got better, I was able to measure the Wi-Fi performance and find this data led me to identify the real problem and therefore,the right solution which ended up not being my the Wi-Fi router but an obsolete cable modem that was losing connection with Xfinity. I thank the developers of this app and really appreciate how much is taught me about how Wi-Fi works at my own home. With this app I ruled out my Wi-Fi router as the issue and instead of investing hundreds in new wifi equipment I spent $60 on a new cable modem that is rated for my current Xfinity service.

Useful Indicator

Works with iOS 13.3, and provides useful indication of your WiFi coverage by evaluating data transfer speeds.

I was simply looking for a simple WiFi signal strength-meter, either a moving needle or a multi-segment bar. The App instead displays real-time data transfer speeds on a moving chart and that’s really much more valuable.

I have no idea if the Mbps speed displayed is precisely accurate (it may be), but even if it isn’t, being able to move about and see the relative change in indicated speed is sufficient to be able to determine optimal locations and weak spots. Very nice that you can see the ongoing continuous fluctuations in speed or hold a “button” and see an accumulative average.

I think it’s a great tool, very useful for someone looking to optimize their WiFi data transfer rate. Moving just at a few feet can sometimes make quite a difference. I can see this being useful outside my home too, particularly when choosing seating in areas with public WiFi.

It is important that the user understands that this does not search for WiFi sources in your vicinity, rather this evaluates (faster speed = stronger signal) the WiFi source you are already connected with.

I’m using the App on an iPhone X running iOS 13.3 and I’m quite pleased with it.
