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.

See the fiasco with Koingo’s Data Guardian to understand why no one in their right mind would recommend this company's software.

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.

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.

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!

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.

As per the 1.3.2 issue, it was not a Software Update that invalidated the app. It's simply a bug that came as the totalseconds value for a date object became to great to store in a memory block. We've been offering free updates to version 2.x since day 1 to the small number of affected customers.

@Koingo: I have sent numerous requests to yourselves with no replies. Of course, I must be lying. Others who have expressed disappointment must be lying as well. I don't buy this totalseconds story and I simply cannot understand why, despite me providing you with all the details, you simply cannot even be bothered to respond. It leaves a sour taste in my mouth and makes me skeptical of further promo purchases.

@Polacanada - I personally did not mark your comment as "negative". However, to give a product 1/2 star with no personal explanation is truly unacceptable. People really rely on the rating system and to sway it without justification is not cool.

AirRadar shows my wireless signal strength as being 13% while iStumbler says it's 31%.
So, which is correct?
Why the discrepancy?

Hello. As a registered user of version one I would like to try the new version and eventually buy it. Unfortunately the new version doesn't allow me to test it because of the previous registered version. A message pops up telling me that the program was been installed for more that 150 days and refuses to run without registration. Is there a way to test the new version? Thanks.

Same here. You upgrade the software to version 2 and then you can't use it. Their database still thinks I am using version 1, but the error message says I have been using version 2 "before it was born". Interesting. I can't even open the program to see all those wonderful new features. Kind of hard to rate it with these licence features.

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.

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.

Raise a support ticket on their support site - that is the appropriate forum for this question.
