"Good Product but No Longer Free"
Version: WiFi Scanner 1.2.1
Useful occasional use utility
Costs $9.99 at app store
While I understand the desire of the developers to get some money for their work, $9.99 is way to costly for a utility I may want a couple of times a year. If revenue is that important (and looking at their web site, this app looks like it would be a miniscule revenue contributor) then I would prefer to see it ad supported. As an alternative, the publisher could advertise their corporate services and consider free distribution of the app as a marketing expense.
If anyone from the company reads this, Kudos for your work in the humanitarian sphere.
