Wifi Analyzer, as the name is pretty self-explanatory and needs no introduction thereby. When you open the App, a screen shows the analyzing strength of your current wireless connection. If you are not much technical then you won’t understand what -90 to -30 dBM means, but one the Brilliant Feature Of Wifi Analyzer is that you can quickly understand, what is gray depicts bad and green depicts well. If you look at the majority of the applications, there is a needle. If that needle is pointing to the right, then apparently it’s good. This screen is the one that provides you the clear idea of the strength of the network which you are using.
Once you do the right swipe, this App would show you the available networks along with statistics such as their SSIDs, whether they are locked or not and their signal strength. One of the features in this App will help you to enjoy your user experiences and meanwhile automatically connect to an open network. But you need an auxiliary app called “Wifi Connecter library”.
This App is little technical as it totally related to Wifi and networking, so you should have some understanding of Networking terms. When I downloaded the App for my experience, I saw there are lots of features. First, I clicked on “Scan Network”, in few sec the Wifi network which connected my phone is scanned and MAC details have been shown.

One strong part of this App is how it offers tons of networking features like, how one can analyze their Wifi strength, check IP’s, analyze established connections and monitor the channel strength as well.
As I said, this App is full of technical terms, graphs, and complicated charts, but in counter, it gives an awesome experience for Wifi users who want to analyze their surrounding network with the best network analyzer. Apart from all these,this App will help you to identify the “dead zones” on your home network which may slow your Wifi speed, anonymous attack etc. In case, if you are a travel freak, you can check whether there are any open Hotspots in your surrounding or not.
