WifiInfoView
Find out more about nearby wireless networks

WifiInfoView is a compact tool which scans for wireless networks and displays a host of details on its findings.

This includes all the usual details, of course, like the network name, signal quality and security. But there's also the MAC address, frequency and channel, as well as the network PHY type (802.11a, 802.11g, 802.11n, or High-Rate DSSS). You may even see the router model and name, as well as the company who made it (although this depends on the router itself).

The report also includes the dates when the network was first and last detected, as well as the number of times it's been detected in total. This is great for picking out when something has changed (a new network has appeared, perhaps).

If you're a wifi expert then you can also select a network and see a hex dump of all the information received from that device.

But if you're a little less technical then you can alternatively choose a Summary mode, which drops most of the low-level details and concentrates mainly on the wireless basics.

Version 2.07:

  • Updated the internal MAC addresses file.

Verdict:

There's nothing too surprising here, but WifiInfoView does provide some useful information on local wireless networks

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
