App: WiFi Stumbler
Meraki's WiFi Stumbler is another Android-only WLAN utility, and it's been around awhile. Its functionality is limited to the 2.4 GHz spectrum, but the app is peppy and well laid out. You can easily e-mail network scans for later analysis. Details include channel, signal strength, and security used per WLAN. This app is due for a refresh to include 5 GHz, but whether Cisco (which recently purchased Meraki) will choose to bother with it remains to be seen.
