Android App Pick - WiFi Analyzer

Print

Application: WiFi Analyzer

Welcome Android app fans of all ages!  As we're all gearing up and getting ready for the Christmas season, we all tend to make a list.  This App is #62 on the list of BCCHardware's App Pick of the Week!  Christmas is so much more than gifts and decorations, but it is still fun to give and sometimes get presents.  Some may plan on getting a tablet or maybe a new router, or maybe a computer - perhaps you're just moving into a new area and want to know the best connection signal for your internet.  Try out WiFi Analyzer to gather the best information.  Having good WiFi signal strength makes everything easier to live with - especially if you're on the internet a lot!!

WiFi Analyzer helps you get the most out of network setup and can even help troubleshoot some issues you may be having.  It shows in a clean and simple interface the networks, signal strengths and even the channels that are available.  This is handy so that you can connect to a network that won’t have a lot of channel interference.  There are a lot of different visuals in this App that help you understand what is going on with your network.

If you hold your device horizontally, you can get more information than when you hold it upright.  We used this at a Youth Conference recently when the band was having issues connecting their equipment in the mixing booth with their gear up on stage.  Within a few seconds of running WiFi Analyzer, we had figured out why and solved the problem.
