Wifi Collector 1.00
Detect local wifi networks with your Android device

Wifi Collector is an Android app which detects collects data on wireless networks as you walk or drive around.

Notably, Wifi Collector is the first Android app from Windows utility specialist NirSoft.

The app has a very basic interface, but is functional enough, recording plenty of information about any local networks: their name (SSID), MAC address of the access point, manufacturer of the access point, signal level, channel frequency, channel number, security (WEP/WPA/WPA2), WPS support (Yes/No), date and time that the network was detected, and the network's location (longitude and latitude).

As with NirSoft's PC tools, you can export this data in various text formats (CSV, HTML, tab-delimited).

Wifi Collector does go a little further, however, with the ability to save the network locations as a .KML file, meaning you can view them all on Google Earth: very convenient.

Verdict:

Wifi Collector doesn't collect or display as much network information as NirSoft's Windows equivalents. It does enough to be useful, though, and of course is easier to carry around when you're doing a local site survey.

Does the app also represent a new direction for NirSoft? We'll be interested to see what happens next.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
