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.
Sticks with first AP info. Can't provide feedback within app.
When passing through different access points of the same wifi name/credentials (poor-man's-mesh-networking) the mac address of the wifi access point never updates but the signal meter continues (you can't map overlapping "cells" to know which AP you're connected to so you know which AP to adjust). It stays as the mac addr first AP you started on.
The feedback window doesn't scroll and the keyboard covers all but four lines of text. You can't read what you've typed without painfully dismissing the keyboard and hope you hit the right word to edit. When I tried to submit this feedback in-app it told me to enter an email address in the settings menu, but there's no place in the settings menu inside the app to do that. I have to supply feedback through a review.
Very intuitive WiFi mapping
This app is great for find dead spots and quickly assessing whether you efforts to improve wifi coverage are workin. I simply did the inventory by going to all the areas I use it might use my laptop, tablet, anything WiFi. I recorded the readings with the location identifier. Mapped it mentally it's a small apartment. And the adjust location and direction of the the router till I had awesome coverage.
