    "Better than anything in OS X and more informational"

    January 8, 2011  |   By e3954

    Pros

    Frequent updates and the ability to identify locations (although not terribly accurate).

    Cons

    Not very good at pinpointing wi fi locations.

    Summary

    This application does more to provide useful information than any other product yet used by this reviewer. Although not perfect, it seems to find transmissions quickly and gives a good indicator of strength, plus the usual information such as type of security used. Not suitable for hackers trying to break into networks, rather enables curious people to better understand coverage in the area where they are located.
