inSSIDer for Mac OS X

inSSIDer for Mac OS X

inSSIDer, the app we all have loved on Windows is now available on the Mac App Store.

See description below from the Mac App Store for details.The app looks very similar to the windows version but is currently a v1.0 product and doesn’t have all features of the windows version. I’m sure future versions will add all the great features available in the windows version. I have always liked the clean design of MetaGeek apps and looks like they were able continue with same design in Mac version of inSSIDer .

A big congrats and thanks to the MeteGeek folks for releasing a Mac version of inSSIDer!

Scan the Wi-Fi networks around you and track their signal strength over time. inSSIDer scans all the Wi-Fi networks within the reach of your computer’s wireless card, tracks their signal strength over time, and determines their security settings. Track open or secure wireless networks. Determine the best channel for your own wireless network.

inSSIDer’s Wi-Fi scanner includes a Networks Table that displays all visible access points. inSSIDer tracks the RSSI, Security, Channel, Hardware Vendor, Max Rate, Network Type, and MAC Address for each SSID. The columns in inSSIDer’s network table can be reordered by dragging its header to the desired position. The table can also be resorted by clicking the header of any column. To find the strongest signal, click RSSI and look for the number closest to 0 (The lower the number, the weaker the signal).

The time graph displays the signal strength of any wireless SSID over time. This will help to locate unknown or rogue access points. Click on any network listed in the table and the associated time graph line below will become bold, helping you identify a single network amongst many.
