    I have looked high and low - all over the App Store - Where did these Apps go ?????

    I am looking for a simple APP (Paid or FREE) for the Ipad (or Iphone) which simply detects all LOCAL WiFi Transmitters within "range" and displays their SSID's, Channel Numbers, Signal Strength, and Security Type.
    I want to check what channels my neighbors are on so I can find a quiet channel.

    I am NOT looking for an App to display FREE "Hotspots" - There are TONS of those around. Way too many.
    There used to be a bunch of these App's for the Iphone (like WiFiTrak) but they are all gone now...........

    Can anybody help me..... Thanx a million

    They were pulled by Apple. I have read a post explaining why here but I don't have the link. If you search, you should find it.
