Quite useful for site surveys (scanning for unsecured Wi Fi access points), or surveying large areas as part of a larger security audit. Has slow down options for scanning whilst walking as well, so you can go for a stroll or a run around a site and the scanner will still work without consuming lots of battery power.

It can also be used if you just have a passing interest in seeing what is out there – for example you could take a drive around your city center and see the state of access points (open, secured, insecure etc.).

The hotspots will be colored coated and marked on the map in your surrounding area. From the Menu tab you can access the Settings by pressing the more button. There are many settings to choose from to enhance the app’s abilities as needed. The CSV export lets you export the data for manipulation in your favorite spreadsheet editor (Excel, OpenOffice / LibreOffice), or visualize access points using the KML export.
