Available as a free download, NetSpot sets itself apart as one of the best tools with set of extensive data collection features, the ability to create heat maps of radio frequencies (for registered users), and comparison of the different networks the computer scan. It does it with a friendly user interface over all that power. This combination means that we don’t have to try and figure out cryptic commands or understand the how radio waves work.
NetSpot already has an amazing product for Windows and Mac OS systems. Netspot for Android brings that power as a free WiFi app for Android phones and tablets with a new interface, and its free Discover Mode allows users to simply walk through their building with their Android tablet or phone for the entire range of WiFi networks available, then displays how they measure up.
For example, with one chart we can see each of the networks and various differences such as signal strength, signal to noise ratio, the Ethernet address of the router, and related information.
Another screen shows an amazing graph of signal strength of each network over time, so we can go from one section to the next, see how each network grows or falls in strength depending on where we are and when. It’s everything we need to find where our networks are working, where they’re fading, and where they’re failing altogether.
