With AirRadar, scanning for wireless networks is now easier and more personalized!

AirRadar allows you to scan for open networks and tag them as favourites or filter them out. View detailed network information, graph network signal strength, and automatically join the best open network in range.

Whether you are driving around looking for wireless networks, stuck in traffic, sitting on the beach, or if you are curious how strong your wireless signal is at home, AirRadar provides a more linear approach to network hunting. Setup a scan frequency, and have new open or closed networks have their name spoken, more...

What's New

Version 2.3.4:
  • Apple Issue: When scanning with API mode, results are only updated every 30 seconds regardless of how fast a scan request is made.
  • Bug Fix: Updated to latest core classes for overall stability.


OS X 10.6 or later

This app must be a work in progress, after all, how could an AP 7 feet in front of you only be showing 47-75% signal?! Why would it vary so widely?!

The software is functional and I've been using it since it was βeta, quite a few years ago.

I originally pointed them to a source of MAC: Vendor codes and they immediately implemented them, making it very useful.

The MAC: Vendor list implementation is not not being maintained or updated in this app.

I have raised 2 support tickets with them and nothing is done.

It is not difficult to access MAC:Vendor lists online - and trivial to incorporate.

WIFi Explorer, for example is (at this time), fully upto date.

I’ve been using this for years, but the developers have lazily let it languish for the last year or so and the last few versions (especially 2.3.2) have been unstable as hell on OS 10.6.8, 10.7, 10.8 and Mavericks. it crashes all the time, and so is now a piece of crap. Look elsewhere for such an app, and stay away from Koingo software in general — even MacUpdate.com recommends we NOT patronize this collection of hacks.

It should be mentioned in the requirements here that you have to sign up for an account with some other crap service (called "paddle") in order to register this software. Paddle's system has not managed to register my software, purchased here, but it has managed to spam me with three emails in five days about some stupid software bundle that I don't want. I already registered with an account here at macupdate and purchased this software; if I had known there was yet another intermediary taking my personal info, I wouldn't have bought it.

I believe that users should be aware of bad business practices and I for one am a very unhappy customer of Koingo software. I would strongly discourage anyone from doing business with them. I don't think their software is bad, but they are a terrible company to do business with, they have poor customer service and they quite frankly refused to honor their contract with me even after I proved that they were in error. I purchased their Utility package on 8/17/2010 which their Web site described as: "free upgrades for the product's entire life at Koingo software" However they refused to provide updates - I do have the email chain to prove the details. I am sure that the expired licenses was no mistake and macupdate called them on it. Avoid this company.

This is ridiculous. A recommendation by MacUpdate (if at all) should be based on the quality of the software, not on a conflict between MacUpdate and the developer where some users were caught in the middle. Koingo made up with discounts, now MacUpdate should remove this childish non-recommendation note on all its Koingo's software pages.

BTW: I am a happy user of AirRadar.

Where did all the flurry of posts from late December 2012 suddenly disappear to? And why? And by whom? And why wasn't I notified?

As a PREVIOUS owner of AirRadar here are a few points.

• Koingo indeed deactivated previous versions as MANY have indicated here and in fact wanted a $5 reactivation fee.
• To imply these numerous reports of deactivations are incorrect or not credible is an insult to those who reported this action and to MacUpdate.

Again, the business practices and ethics of this company MUST BE called into serious question.

Same experience here. I've just deleted AirRadar from my system and will never again purchase software from this company.


We did not deactivate the old version. As stated previously, there was a bug in the old version and we're offering FREE upgrades to 2.x for anyone who was affected by this bug. All you have to do is write in and explain your situation.


Ok Koingo - there needs to be a better solution. Are you seriously expecting people to e-mail you?!?!? You should be going back to YOUR RECORDS (hint, hint) and e-mailing the customers YOURSELF and pointing them towards a download site where they can upgrade.

Koingo Software, Inc. (Developer)

The issue is that the problem does not affect all users. We're happy to look customers up if the issue affects them and issue a free upgrade. However, we're not about to issue free updates to every 1.x customer of AirRadar as this appears to only affect a very small portion (less than 5%) of users.

Just FYI...

Last night, I sent a support request to Koingo in regards to my disabled AirRadar 1.3.2.

This morning, they responded with a free AirRadar 2.x license. So, Koingo is back in my good books again. :-)

I did so as well on 15 Nov and to date have received no responses from them - consider yourself lucky. Their practice of disabling previous version remains nothing short of disgusting!

Koingo Software, Inc. (Developer)

Well, there's no point for us to disable a previous version if we're giving out free upgrades to 2.x. Gregorgy, we have a tech support queue which we go through daily but sometimes this can mean a few days before a reply. I do apologize for the delay, but your license has been issued now.


I sent a support request on Dec 10 and have not heard back. I very seldom use the app and had 1.3.1 but finally noticed the 1.3.2 update link here. It does the same thing, naturally. I updated the support ticket. I suppose they want a paid upgrade as a fix.


They finally noticed my ticket and fixed things with the 2.x license as others have received. All is well now, Thank you.
