    "This is a nice tool for analyzing and measuring WiFi networks but I need a way to keep people off of them as well without directly accessing my router. Since this app can only tell me about the networks and not the users who are attempting to use them this app cannot help me. So while I am keeping this installed I still need to find something else."

    "It could use a bit of a design update, but nonetheless it's really well done and easy to use. I like that I can see every device at a glance, and terminate anything that's either suspicious or just doesn't need to be logged on at the time--frees up the bandwidth. Everything's been much faster since I started using this!"
