Earlier versions had fantastic performance and live data, doesn't seem to "refresh" as well anymore. I used to use it for mapping strength in my WiFi installations as part of my work, it was so responsive and reliable. Now I can walk far away from a signal or even unplug an AP and the change isn't reflected on-screen for minutes. Other than that and based on previous performance, great app.

I've used this app for years with great results. I recently got a newer phone, and I found that Wi-Fi Analyzer would no longer display the signal strength info in real time. I finally figured out that I had to disable "WiFi scan throttling" in Developer Options. So for those of you running newer versions of Android, you may have to do this as well.

The older version worked fine without enabling my location. The new version won't work at all without having your location enabled. There's no good reason to know my GPS location just to scan a local wireless network. This is nothing more than a method of determining the physical location of wireless networks. I've used this app for years as a tool for my job and now I've got to find another. If you have the old version. of this app DO NOT UPGRADE IT!
