Hi Steve, welcome to the MetaGeek Community and thank you for subscribing to MetaGeek Plus! Your suggestion is excellent. I, too, would very much prefer to use my mobile device to do snapshots of WiFi performance.
InSSIDer Technician was the first platform where we started to build out a cloud-connected WiFi monitoring solution. Since then, we have developed a better understanding of what the backend of that system needs to look like in MetaGeek Plus. Sadly, the InSSIDer Technician app doesn’t use the new MetaGeek Plus APIs, and it doesn’t share any code with any of the other Android apps we’ve published through the years.
While Casey is correct that recent Android releases have limited the WiFi scanning capability, I still believe it is quite sufficient for a home WiFi assessment. One of our top priorities for the MetaGeek Plus platform is to re-introduce a mobile app. Right now I don’t have a timeline for when we can get that done.
In the meantime, I recommend you check out Ubiquiti Networks’ WiFiMan.
