Quite useful. It's easy to use and is a very good home app that meets its goal. Not intended to be a pro level tool, so don't expect every feature you would find in a dedicated network scanning tool. The majority of people downloading from the "Play Store" aren't professionals and don't need that level of complexity, in a personal tool. Well done... Thank you, Netgear.
Very Good Graphs and Easy Interface When I saw the Netgear brand I had to download. It was a good decision. Nice analytic graphs and they are accurate. I know this because I paid for an analytical tool on my laptop. Two quibbles: 1) Only displays in portrait. Does not rotate to Landscape on my Galaxy Tab. 2) The Channel graph does not automatically show my 5Ghz on channel 149. The graph defaulted to the lowest numbered channels. There is a slider bar at the top of the graph that can be used see higher numbered channels.
Very useful... Now let's all get paranoid about privacy!! Who the hell cares if this app wants to know my location?! Is that going to harm me in some way? I don't think so. Walking around the house trying to figure out the best 5GHz channel to use and the best location for my WiFi extender this app is absolutely invaluable. It's helped me refine my WiFi setup and I wouldn't be without it.
This is really Only basic feedback : All it's missing is data usage from your Wi-Fi connection. Calculate each area of usage in home or calculate everything being pulled from that router/ modem/ signal. Give us accurate reports of what your actually using cause how many pages do I really need to state my Wi-Fi strength is high &working 😕📇
Simple for non technical users I like the polling for various rooms in the house. Very simple to use. The best use is help deciding which channel to use. I used to have frequent disconnects because of interference. Switched channels and my connection is much more stable. I wish houses were constructed for centralized wifi. Luckily they have repeaters if you arent gaming.
It won't show or work for me regardless of if data is turned on or not. The thing is, we just recently got a new Verizon router and it's by NetGear. I'm kinda tech-savvy and wouldn't call myself technically challenged, but still it doesn't work. Does a specific NetGear product have to be bought for this app to work? Is there a catch or something?
