Wireless survey tool.

Overview

NetSpot Pro is a simple and accessible wireless survey tool for Mac users, which allows collecting, visualizing and analyzing Wi-Fi data using any MacBook.

NetSpot Pro can visualize your wireless network by building a visual Wi-Fi map. It will let you see dead zones without coverage and place hotspots (Access Points) correctly. Using the visualized map of collected wireless data you will also see channels' load and will be able to decide how to optimize your Wi-Fi site better.

NetSpot Pro is a powerful analyzer of Wi-Fi coverage. Just in a couple of clicks you can load your area map, point your location on the map and NetSpot Pro starts collecting Wi-Fi data around you. It will gather all the needed information for radio signal leakages analyzing, noise sources discovering, access points effective location, etc.

You can also use NetSpot Pro as a powerful wireless network planning tool. Load a map, collect wireless site survey data, build a heatmap of your network and you are ready to build the optimal configuration of a new Wi-Fi network and wise radio channels usage with minimal signal to noise ratio.

Fantastic software. Worth between $1000 - $2000. That's price for a typical warehouse survey. This software is an incredible bargain.

Great app. Use it daily and it just works. The only hangup I have is the price (and that's more to say that the product isn't worth it but rather I'm cheap). It's a solid 4..5 star.

In version 2.4.607 here seems to be a bug so that unrealistic measurings are displayesd in "Discovery Mode" (Signal=0 and Signal%=100%). I notified NetSpot a week ago and asked if this will influence "Survey Mode" so that the resulting map may be invalid. Alas, no answer to this day ...

I like many others have not received my serial number. It has been a week and a half since I bought it and after two emails to the developer and 2 to MacUpdate, still nothing. I don't think the odds of me buying through MacUpdate are very high anymore.

Hi there, when you say "many others', how many do you actually mean? I see three people here actively posting negative comments about the license delivery, but only you have actually reported the issue directly to us. I'm really sorry for the delayed fix to that, and we would appreciate cleaning out some of the comments here. As all licenses that were reported not received are activated today.

OK sure. I will help you clear this out. First of all, I started looking through comments and there were quite a few comments with issues about the license, though I see now that some were from the same people, so yes, "a few others" would have been the better way to state it. I can't say enough positive about Ryan at MacUpdate's handling of it all, and they were very responsive and helpful in seeing this through to an acceptable conclusion. After just over two weeks, and writing Netspot directly at least twice, I finally did get my activation code (with the help of MacUpdate), but that was TWO weeks with no response from the developer until the very end... I find that unacceptable A simple acknowledgement that they were working on the problem would have been all that was needed, but a deaf ear lends no confidence at all of the intents of the developer, and it becomes something that is just a big hassle and time sink. So in conclusion, the issue was finally resolved and though I do appreciate the apology, I wasn't impressed with the admin side of Netspot in this transaction. I do like the program!

My business has a particular current need for the full capabilities of this software, so I took advantage of the promotional price. My receipt reads, "Your serial number will be emailed to you directly by the developer," but there is no indication of how long I am supposed to wait. It is now a day later and I still have no serial number. (I'm assuming the "serial number" is the activation code for which the software asks.) My e-mail to MacUpdate support has gone unanswered as well.

I did the same thing as you. They are both being lame at communication. The folks at Netspot have until the end of the day to respond, then I'm off to my bank to scream Credit Card fraud about macupdates, then I'm going to torrent an older version of Netspot Pro just to spite Netspot for being lousy at communicating. This does not speak well of how they might support a customer who paid $150 or more for their product......they can't be THAT busy.

Interesting as I've commented on here the "promo" for $20 for Netspot PRO has been removed. Yesterday the "promo" still had 20 days until it ended.

I received an e-mail from MacUpdate support yesterday around noon PDT with the following message:

"i have contacted the developer directly and they should be following up with you shortly."

Of course, the developer still has not contacted me.

As neither the developer nor MacUpdate has made good on this (with either a serial number or a refund), I am left with no recourse other than to file a fraud claim with my credit card company for non-delivery of goods. What a shame.

Guys, please, see some recent comments above. Dear bboberson, you are the only one who we could not track by your nickname. So if you still haven't received your license, please, email official "very busy" support at onair@netspotapp.com or me directly at al@etwok.com, we'll be glad to help.

NetSpot is nice but nothing special In Discovery mode, but it’s nothing short of great in Survey mode. However, you’d think they’d allow users to hide or rearrange the SSID and BSSID columns in the $149 Pro version. Next update maybe?

I forgot to mention that a faster scan interval in Discover mode would also be welcome — say every 2 seconds.

Hi GeoProf,

1 - SSID and BSSID columns are actually the essence of the Discover mode, we don't see any reason to let users hide them. But... let's discuss: http://help.netspotapp.com/talk

2 - Unfortunately, WiFi polling may take even longer than 2 seconds, especially when visible networks are numerous. This will only lead to more idle traffic back and forth to the APs, as each sample in Discover mode means data packets being sent and received.

Sorry, the original comment came at initial posting to MacUpdate was intended to be a check point for the developer. MacBook Pro 2.3GHz i7 w/ 16GB RAM running 10.8.3 Original update was in app and failed to run. Deleted app, all preferences and related files to re-install from fresh download direct from developers site. Same result... app fails to launch. Same result if installed on a fresh, new user account with nothing other than basic OS running.

Finally had time to trouble shoot a bit and found the problem. Previous version was installed in a folder WITHIN the Utilities folder (where I normally keep my various network tools). This version DOES run just fine if installed in Applications or Utilities folders. It DOES NOT run if in a subfolder within the Utilities folder.

I also confirm L P Bagley comments that this version (2.1.4) can not reside inside a sub folder within the Utility or Application folder. It has to be all by itself in the Application folder. In addition when I added the version number to the name ( NetSpot 2.1.4 ) it would not launch. These are very weird conditions not to my liking however free is free is what you get.
