Users who work on multiple wireless networks may find native managers insufficient. AirRader for Mac provides additional wireless management options in a relatively easy-to-use format.

AirRader for Mac is available as a free trial version with a 15-day limit. The full, unrestricted version requires a $19.95 payment. The download was fast and the program's native installer was well designed. The installer did require acceptance of a user agreement and a pop-up prompted payment to access the full version, but this was easily dismissed. The menu's major options available to the user are relatively easy to locate and the graphics associated with these buttons were clear. There is also support for updates and the program can be set to automatically check for them. In terms of functioning, the program searches for and displays available networks, although the placement of the search button is in an odd location. Networks are sorted according to their signal strength and placed in categories such as security, public, and general networks. The list was easy to read and additional options graphed the results and saved favorites.

For those users who frequently use different wireless networks, AirRadar for Mac works well and allows some additional features beyond native managers.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AirRadar for Mac 2.3.

Developer's Description

Finding a free WiFi network while on vacation can be a nightmare. Using advanced GPS technology, AirRadar scans and places all networks on a map. While walking or driving, AirRadar automatically updates the location of networks when it finds a better signal elsewhere.
Open networks are clearly marked with a green dot, and closed networks with a red dot. Simply throw the laptop on the passenger seat before leaving the house for the day, and after a day of driving, have a comprehensive map of open networks. In modern households, it's common for families to have a WiFi router. In apartment buildings and dense city areas, hundreds of WiFi signals can often be picked up from a single spot. AirRadar can provide insight to optimizing your home network and reducing interference from other signals. The calmest, or even unused, WiFi channels are presented with every scan.
