Very Good

This is exactly what I was looking for.
I found out why I was having internet problems it seems I was always cluttered with someone else’s WiFi I hade no idea till I got this app....

My suggestion is don’t use the WiFi auto setting. Get this app figure out what channel is best to use and always check up. 👍🏻

Works perfectly. Surprisingly, our wifi was set to auto detect the best channel but always picked the one with intereference. This app allowed me to see all the wifi signals in my office and identify the one that was interefering with us and find an open channel. Great App!

Does what it says...

Not terribly useful other than in seeing the wifis within range of your computer. It is interesting.
