    I use inSSIDer on my PC to measure signal strength inside my house. I just thought it would be nice to have the same capability with my iPad, plus it would be a lot more convenient.

    I was just wondering if Apple ever addressed this or gave a reason why they won't allow the app. Skull One probably has the answer to my question.

    Thanks!

    Frankly, I'm having a bit of a hard time accepting this. Anyone can use anything for the wrong reasons or in ways not intended. Apple can't police everything. I wasn't among the iOS crowd in the early days, so I have to accept your word as to why they pulled wifi detectors from the app store. It seems like a horrible mistake to me. No matter to me, though, as I have 3 other devices that have WIFI Analyzer installed, but others aren't as nuts as I am. :)

    This is what tipped me over the edge to jailbreak my iPhone. Wifi analyzer is a wonderful tool. Not having it would likely tip me to start liking android more as my phone.

    I'm with you there. My contract is almost up and android phones are becoming attractive to me. They are getting great battery life, screen and app quality has really improved. Drap-n-Drop files to SD card for easy file management, These are little things but little things I would use a lot. I know, Dropbox, or a Wireless Hard Drives etc, but hey I got the phone right hear in my pocket. Don't get me wrong I love my iPad but...

    I definitely would not recommend to everyone, but got ice scream sandwich on my acer tablet today and have to say there is a marked improvement in user interface. I think it could make a really good phone os.

    It is a definite improvement, though I still get a lot of FCs. I still highly prefer it to HC. And I agree on a phone it would be sweet. But the OS is only one aspect of phone use...

    Yes, many people don't realize how much stability and predictability are important on their phones. That is one thing missing from ICS.

    I've also noticed a few speed issues. In particular when I bring up the browser it's not immediately usable.

    There are many good things about it also.
