I would recommend this app - I have iStumbler (free) and AirRadar ($20). I find it more useful than iStumbler and it is a lot cheaper than AirRadar. Easy to use, excellent GUI, rock solid performance and very reasonable price. Can't get much better than that! Worth trying out, and I suspect once you have tried it, you will continue to use it.

Attractive UI and easy to use. The reasons I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 are that a) it occasionally blanks out the graphical and tabular display of networks, and b) it can't see my hidden 802.11n 2.4 GHz network, even though my MacBook Pro can see it

The app can't see hidden networks because Apple's official framework for wifi scanning doesn't allow it. However, if you're connected to a hidden network, the app should display it.
