AirRadar for Mac

17 December 2020

Easy-to-use, personalized wireless network scanner.

What is AirRadar for Mac

With AirRadar, scanning for wireless networks is now easier and more personalized! It allows you to scan for open networks and tag them as favorites 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, play alerts or display notifications.

Various other options allow you to customize your network list further, including assigning colors to best open networks and sound cues. Download it today, and take the hardship out of getting an Internet connection at a critical time.

Note: Please note that the displayed price is of a lifetime purchase. Additional pricing info available here

For me as student or even average user I am totally dependent upon wifi networks all the time , this application is the best 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 . Easy to use with a stunning design and very convenient compared to other applications do this job . This company seriously make a very helpful and high quality products that deserves to check out. Their customer service is very responsive and friendly. Deserves 5 star rating for sure.

Version 4.0 has been released. It's 64-bit. It's unstable with a few problems.
- It kept dropping my Wi-Fi router during scanning for no reason. It similarly would lose track of a number of other Wi-Fi routers in my vicinity.
- It locked up twice while I was running scans. The first time it recovered after I forced it to restart scanning. The second time it locked up solid.
- At lockup, it kindly provided a bug reporting window to fill out. But NONE of its buttons worked. I could not 'Send Report' OR 'Save Report...' OR 'Quit Now'. The buttons were entirely inert. I had to Force Quit the application.

IOW: I consider v4.0 to still be beta quality. Better luck next version!

Here are the Release Notes for v4.0 from Koingo:

"Version 4 is a paid upgrade from version 3 and lower. Order an upgrade by logging into your koingosw.com account, pressing the Orders tab, and then clicking the Upgrade button!

"Users owing an active subscription to this product will get it automatically without additional cost. This upgrade is also free if ordering a non-subscription version within the last year. Visit your account and click the Upgrade link to obtain a free copy."

• Full compatibility with MacOS High Sierra.
• Completely redesigned and updated for 64-bit.
• Signal to Noise Ratio.
• New internal scan tool which does not lock up the UI, and can return results quickly instead of 30 seconds between fresh data.
• dBm RSSI now expressed in a non-linear fashion to provide a more accurate percentage.
• Fixed bugs on macOS High Sierra.
• Statistics panel now grows properly on window resize.
• Fixed bug preventing scan interval from being less than 5 seconds. It is important to note that scans often take between 5 and 10 seconds to complete.
• Removed deep probe mode as it no longer does anything on any modern hardware.

The MAS version is still in 3.1.2 and doesn't launch at all… I contacted the support but never got any reply. The regular version (that I use in demo mode) is mostly OK but suffers from a number of annoying glitches (doesn't save labels and favorites for instance…). The only positive point IMVHO is that it nicely supports BSSIDs and allows me to connect to a specific wireless router within a network.

Copy cat developers Koingo strike again. iStumbler is fantastic. Was freeware for the longest time. Now iStumbler has a price tag Koingo jumps in to undercut the original developer yet again. Apparently app licenses are annual subscriptions now. I've cut the cord to Adobe over Creative cloud, Koingo. Do you really think you are as important to Mac users as Adobe? Obscenities have no place in professional written communication. I'll stop here.

Only iStumbler is better. No, Koingo is not some horror software development company. Instead they're imperfect, a bit blundering in the PR department, and a victim of a relentless hate campaign around here for reasons that are remarkably emotional, as opposed to rational. I like their stuff, use it and enjoy it. I bought the Everything Forever license and am glad I did. Thanks for keeping AirRadar updated!

With v.3 - the MAC Vendor list is updated, it's just a file within the resources. I see the format of the file has changed, but not difficult to include an update to v.2 surely?; http://standards.ieee.org/regauth/oui/oui.txt I reformatted the file inside Word, --- If you want to update your Vendor list, just drop this file into the resources folder of Air Radar 2: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/37025901/vendorcodes.txt (right click>Show Package Contents>Resources) --- Which makes it even more frustrating is that they delayed and delayed updating the Vendor list - instead they are offering up a new app for $7(upgrade) - $9.95(full). - I will not be updating, saving myself $7 and I'll just be updating the file myself. "After countless hours of competitive research with other products on the market, we have now completely overhauled our product interface, added new features," - I'd like to see a table with their comparisons. --- Overall, not impressed with the business principle in play here.

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.

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.

Downloaded the software as it allows 15 days trial use - thank you Koingo! Wanted to troubleshoot my ongoing Lion-related wifi issues to see if I could determine where/when dropouts etc occurred. But no luck - AirRadar fails to see any networks despite at least 5 showing on my airport menu droplist. So I guess I won't be buying this software if it can't find my 2 networks and the various networks filling the airwaves.

Apparently my licensed version 1.3.2 AirRadar was permanently disabled by Koingo when I allowed it to 'check for updates' recently. Now all I get is the error message "Please report this error to Koingo Software if the problem persists in the latest version available from our web site." Impossible to justify $20 to update to version 2 for a product I might use once a year on vacation.

What a slimy move, your competitor KisMAC was updated today and shortly after that you updated your application, coincidence? Doubt it.

I'm only using AirRadar to help position antennas for my home wifi network, so this review doesn't apply to AirRadar scanning for new networks. It's not bad, but it could be more intuitive. Favorites is useless, it lists my favorites, but clicking on them doesn't do anything, and double clicking opens an editor for name and MAC address. All I want to do is get a signal to noise ratio graph, which I should be able to set up and then return to every time I launch the application. Most of the AirRadar's "features" are settings to customize graph appearance. Strip all that away, and this is a one-trick pony that needs constant coaxing to make it do its trick. Apple really should have included this functionality in Airport Utility. If they ever do, I'd advise them not to buy AirRadar.

-- Cannot get columns to stay the width I choose; every refresh changes the width back to a factory setting. Nor can I get some of the Smart Sets to sort by the column method (triangle pointing down for "signal"); again, as soon as the 10-second refresh hits, the column sort reverts to what I do not want. Frequent crashes when defining new Smart Sets and choosing which columns I wished to view and in which order. Definitely room for improvement in stability and remembering user choices.

I just purchased AirRadar 2 on the Mupromo. The problem with these 24 hour bargain purchases is that they do not give you the opportunity to do the full trial before you have to pay. Regrettably, I allowed AirRadar to install the "smart crash reporter" when I first ran the application on my Macbook Pro 13" 10.5.8 (all stock software). For the first time ever, I had a total computer lockup on quitting AirRadar. No force quit of any application would work (Mail and Safari). Only a power-button restart would work. The console log is filled with AirRadar entries on checking permissions, 10/20/10 12:13:28 AM [0x0-0x92092].com.koingosw.AirRadar[96886] [SCR] Owner is not root for /Library/InputManagers/Smart Crash Reports/Smart Crash Reports.bundle/Contents, it is 501. 10/20/10 12:13:28 AM [0x0-0x92092].com.koingosw.AirRadar[96886] [SCR] The current Smart Crash Reports installed does not have the proper permissions, so we are pretending it is a really old version at /Library/InputManagers/Smart Crash Reports (0) 10/20/10 12:13:28 AM [0x0-0x92092].com.koingosw.AirRadar[96886] [SCR] Result of currently installed SCR is 0x1 10/20/10 12:13:28 AM [0x0-0x92092].com.koingosw.AirRadar[96886] [SCR] Checking perms on /Library/InputManagers/Smart Crash Reports/Smart Crash Reports.bundle/Contents and this goes on and on.. How do I uninstall AirRadar and its nasty accessory and write off this hasty $10 purchase?

Well, v2.0 still can't seem to handle too many interfering stations (it blames this on Mac OS X and helpfully suggests "Please do not report this bug") and under Snow Leopard I can no longer choose to use the Airport APIs as a workaround (the option is grayed out in Preferences). Where, these days, in an urban setting, are you _not_ going to run into too many interfering stations? Moreover, come to think of it, neither Kismac nor iStumbler seem to have any problem overcoming this so-called inherent "bug" in Mac OS X. Bletch.

I like this software. I bought it some time ago, but now it wants a registration code for version 1.29. I don't seem to have one. When I look on the Koingo site in my account, there is no registration code shown although I can see I bought the product. Koingo help seems useless on this. Anyone have any idea on how to get the code? Thanks.

Useful for troubleshooting your network to see if someone's signal overlaps, for scanning for an open network, and for configuring a Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with multiple Wireless Access Points (WAPs) building a large wireless network from a single WAP with a wired connection. Nicely designed interface that the developer clearly spent considerable amount of time and care building. Would have recommended some strategic borrowing of icons from standard system application resources to give it a more familiar feel. Hint : Dig into system packages. Some of the icons look a little windows-esk (sorry, no offense intended) A "not" is good for a disconnect where as there are better "filter" symbols for example. Nice feature set with signal graphing capability that is glaringly absent from the Apple wireless utility. The signal graphing capability seems to be limited to only one WAP per graph where as being able to select multiple WAPs and graph together would be extremely useful. Overall, nicer cleaner interface than most of the competition. A little too pricy to make it a no-brainer "buy this" without checking out the competition. At $9 I would not hesitate, at $19 I go looking at the others, especially freeware ones that I am used to running.

iStumbler is more than capable of doing what Airradar can. So is KisMAC for that matter. What Airadar has that they don't is ill-informed defensive posts. And the only complaint anybody has really made is that it costs money, when others do the same thing for free. No complaints about lack of capabilities. No complaints about looks. Mactechhead, please read a bit more into the reviews next time. You have a lot of nerve criticizing the "n00bs" when you yourself offer very little substantive in your posts.

OK, I'm really not getting the point of this app. Honestly, I do understand why it would get such a good rating because the coding is beyond a doubt of quality. It is stable and all. But why would anyone pay for this, when really any Mac comes with AirPort, which does the EXACT SAME THING? What's the difference? Someone please tell me, cause I got a serial with the last MUpromo but I'm having the hardest time finding a use for it...

For any listeners to Mac Geek Gab: AirRadar is not being offered for free. The member download requires a serial, just as it would for anyone else. The link off the Mac Observer webpage is dead and comments to its status have been unanswered. Also, this program is miscast as shareware. It is not. This is a regular program with a 15 day trial.

Signal and noise drop to zero? I've noticed in the graph view (only 100 samples so far) that several access points that are being polled frequently drop to zero signal and noise, often for only one or two polls, but occasionally for a dozen or more polls. My Airport 'frisbee' never seems to do this, but my airport express and a neighbor's linksys drop regularly. Is this an issue with AirRadar, my internal Wifi (Broadcom chipset in an aluminum iMac), the access points, or just a power saving mode on those routers? I noticed that while viewing a graph, set to show 500 samples, the window went black, the graphs disappeared. Switching back to the scanner view, I saw that several of the access points were gone, I suppose because they'd been at zero beyond a time threshold. Very disconcerting behavior, and it appeared that I'd lost all those prior samples.

Koingo is one of the most prolific and dependable software houses in the Mac community. Unlike some software updates, I never have to deliberate on any version update before I install it. I know that it will work as advertised and will do no harm to my system. If I have had small glitches with any of their product line, the company has been quick to respond. Usually Koingo is proactive in addressing problems before I am even aware of them. For that reason, I confidently make sure my copies are kept up to date. I am pleased and fortunate to have their products in my software "stable" and hope that any financial difficulty they might be having is short lived. They have my full support. I recommend their products and believe that the utility package is a reasonably priced, well rounded product line and should be on every Mac.

This was freeware/donationware from the beginning - I used iStumbler, AirMoose, etc - AirRadar is much better IMHO. I wanted the addition of vendor info - it was added almost immediately - I paid the $9.95 donation immediately. Why is it so hard for some people to acknowledge the value of an app, the work the developer has done and make a small contribution? It is obvious that so few donated, far fewer than might be expected - they have to now make it shareware.

AirRadar is an excellent piece of software, and it deserves a review that reflects your opinion of it *as a piece of software*. A few points in defense of the good people at Koingo, who develop another app that I've come to love and depend on, MacPilot: 1) If you were *so* annoyed by the switch to $10 shareware, the program must have been useful to you and had value, otherwise you wouldn't care. 2) If you were *so* annoyed by the switch to $10 shareware, you obviously had no intention of paying for it, so why should anyone else care what your opinion is? You're just irritated that you're not getting it for free, so your evaluation of the software is negatively skewed. 3) What you are personally willing to pay for the program is irrelevant. You don't get to choose the amount. Koingo does. Pay it or don't pay it. And keep in mind, most people will drop $10 at McDonald's in a heart beat, but for some reason they don't see the value in a utility that they can use for years. 4) Bundles have impacted peoples' perceptions of what the value of software is. It is a shame that even a very modest regular price is considered "too high". 5) It's unfortunate that any 14 year old with a macbook their daddy bought them can come on here and post negative reviews of a great piece of software just because they were temporarily inconvenienced and now they have to steal the software they weren't going to buy in the first place. The ratings and comment system needs to be revised somehow to protect hard working developers from idiots swinging wild on review boards.

Absolutely unconscionable behaviour - tantamount to malware, honestly - to offer an automatic "upgrade" to a free application that deletes the previous version and replaces it with a "trial" version... which in turn disables itself immediately on the grounds that it is past the trial period. I hope they lose their shirts on AirRadar during these "difficult times" as users are repulsed by such sneaky (or simply short-sighted and stupid... I suppose we could cut them a little slack) tactics. I would have been happy to consider purchasing an upgrade to the application, had I been presented with the option in an informed fashion... particularly had I been persuaded that there was good cause to do so - either in new features or on moral grounds. I was not given that opportunity. I was tricked into downloading a trojan horse that deleted my functional freeware app and immediately disabled the replacement. Not cricket. Not clever. I will certainly boycott Koingo's applications. Fortunately there are plenty of excellent alternatives.

Developers have no control over which reviews stay or get deleted. This is entirely up to the MacUpdate board moderators, and we have *never* intervened. We are sorry to see so many people do not believe $9.95 is a fair price for AirRadar, but remind users the product *ITSELF* received numerous 5-star reviews for quality, feature set, and usability before we began charging.

Decent enough application and possibly worth the shareware fee. However, it should *always* be disclosed when updating a product will change it from freeware to shareware. The free trial period should at least apply from scratch. Doing so without warning is despicable behaviour on the part of the developer.

Unfortunately, due to the tough economic times, we need to start charging that very small fee for AirRadar to pay for the resources to continue developing it.

The dev finally removed the link to Kagi on their site that led one to believe that the app wasn't free. On another note, this is now the fourteenth (or fifteenth?) time MacUpdate Admin has deleted this comment. Since it's over ten I hope I'll get a t-shirt. Hard to fathom the lack of maturity on their part - for none of my comments contained anything derogatory, inflammatory, or insulting. If this is the manner in which MacUpdate Admin chooses to operaqte, it pretty much destroys the concept on which the commenting system seemed to operate from in the past. All a developer has to do is say a comment is objectionable and it is struck by MacUpdate Admin . So much for accuracy in reviews.

I really like it. It's got a slick interface, it's rich in useful features, and it works beautifully. I haven't found any bugs, or weird system resource usage. It's got great customizability. In short, it does its job well and comprehensively. Definitely worth having. It really shouldn't be free.

Very good potential esp. if this is kept as a donation-ware. Among its feature, it can connect automatically to an open network (with option to only connect if quality/strength is past user-defined level and/or if not already connected), growl support, MAC address capture, favourites and past history with graphs. Very easy to use, well, even if it only scans at a regular interval (can only do this when the main appl. is running though). In short, a good addition to other appl/widget you might already have on your portables.
