Ratings and Reviews

Very nice

Guy Moreillon

Pretty cool app. It has helped me troubleshoot my Wifi reception problems and configure my various wifi stations at home.
Very nice look and displays lots of useful information, including a much better indication of the signal quality than the standard wifi icon.
The companion 'Signal' app is good too.

This tool is a must


If you install wireless networks and want to know what's going on, this is the perfect tool.

A nicce product
