What is NetSpot for Mac

NetSpot is a simple and accessible wireless survey tool, which allows collection, visualization, and analysis of Wi-Fi data using any MacBook. It can visualize your wireless network by building a visual Wi-Fi map, letting 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.

NetSpot 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 starts collecting Wi-Fi data around you. It will gather all the necessary information for analysis of radio-signal leakage, discovery of noise sources, optimal location of access points, etc.

You can also use NetSpot 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 with informed radio-channel usage and minimal signal-to-noise ratio.

What's new in NetSpot

I too purchased this under BundleHunt previously and the vendor was less than responsive, especially when I needed to re-activate this. After jumping through hoops several time I left this nonsense behind and moved on to an alternative. It appears my previous comments have been "moderated" as they are no longer showing here. If I had paid full price I'd be even more perturbed, but replacing it with something just as versatile was more effective than jumping through hoops when I perform clean re-installs on my machine.

Free helpful network analyzing tool. Have already used it several times, I like all those comprehensive graphs with a range of data. It always helps to choose the network in public places.

I had purchased some version of Netspot through a bundle offer. I thought it was a Pro. However the bundled version wasn't really recognized on activation, and every time I quit and re-open, I have to re-activate. I get offered a $49 Home Pro version as an upgrade (or more $ for a higher version upgrade). This was not a "clean buy", where you buy a license and your good. Makes me wonder about the purpose of this app. Be a useful utility or just a vehicle to make money for somebody. It's like something you buy off of one those TV commercials… "But wait, there's more…!!!" Stay with the free version, less sticky.
