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.

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.
