Great App for Evaluating a Router's Setup

I used this App to check out my Wi-Fi. Its recommendation was to change the channel for my Wi-Fi broadcast and I did. I was surprised it resulted in improvement in the signal strength (from good to excellent) for the more remote areas of my house. I found the plots of nearby Wi-Fi signals, their potential overlap and their relative strength interesting.

Developer is a Genius

This app is very useful; it provides Wi-Fi information in an easily understood format. I've tried several other apps on this "theme" and have found this one to be the absolute best.

Really Great App!

I really love this app, it gives me some great info on my wireless network and what it is doing or not doing. I find it a very useful app to have around and check on my network from time to time.

Improve your network IQ

Just by using this app, you'll be able to see how your network is performing, and be able to make decisions to improve it. After determining that my wifi was competing on the same channel with my neighbors, I was able to make a few tweaks that improved both its speed and reliability. Now I just use WiFi Analyzer to see what networks are around, just for fun.

Great app, could make some things more clear

Its an awesome app, but some features aren't as obvious as others. Feedback: I think you should make the purpose bottom right buttons clearer and easier to spot, as I was struggling to figure out how to switch to 5G network for a solid 5 minutes. I'd suggest moving the buttons to the top of the window, as this is where I'd typically expect them to be, and leaving the names of the button on instead of making them disappear. Although this app may not be intended for complete novices to computers, there are some things that could use clarification. For instance, make it clear what the 100% improved chart means. This might be in some "about" page, but I was unable to find it (ties in to my earlier complaint). Another miscellaneous issue is that the app gives EVERY 5Ghz channel 10 stars. Whatever a channel is. Edit: Halfway in writing this review I finally found the about button. It's really more of a troubleshooting guide than an explaination, but theres always Google.

Shows all networks and details

I don't find the speed test portion helpful, but I like how it shows all the available networks (even ones Windows does not) with more details, and signal strength.

Very nice and useful app

Love the design, and functionality. Need the ability to export data from the app to something - CSV, etc. Great app otherwise. Update Oct 16. Even better. I really like this tool. Still would like export features, but the latest update makes this a even more useful app. Great job

Really LIKE this app !

I installed this app and it shows everyone around me. I liked it enough to buy it. I just updated my laptop to Windows 10 version 1607 and it's working great ! NO complaints .... I really like it and have installed the "free" version on several of my friends and neighbors computers !

Ok, but not intuitively useable.

Free, quick easy install/works on win 10. Menu interface is not consistently useable on all tabs (Some grey out, or change). Icon meanings are not clear nor are consistent between tabs. No clear way to view wireless signal strength on dual band (5ghz/2.4ghz) by tabbing over or simultaneously displaying. No clear advice on network congestion/recommended channel with reduced congestion. No easy transition between tabs/what the tabs mean/useful tabs. To summarize: free app, works with win 10, but needs much much more improvement to be easily usable.
