    "I tried using Wi-Fi SweetSpots and it didn't seem particularly helpful. I suppose if you are in a situation where your home has poor wifi coverage you might get a little bit of assistance from this app. For me, it didn't provide any information I didn't already have."

    "Speedtest by Ookla does not boost IOS wifi. I'm not even sure what boosting IOS wifi would mean, but it wouldn't boost it for an iPhone or iPad. It just provided your upload and download speeds, helps you know if your network is slow or fast and not much else."

    "The whole thing was very confusing at first specially at first glance. But once I got my way around the app everything makes sense and I have no regrets getting it. I'm able to know what is wrong with my wifi instead of just blaming it to the telco providers."

    "I always have problems with my internet connection. It's very hard to pick-up signals and connect to my Wifi so this app has proven to be really helpful to me. The app's interface is also really easy to understand, not at all complicated, which is good for people who are weak with configurations like me. "

    "It's very hard to find a strong internet signal more so when I'm out in public places with free wifis. Dr. Wifi is a really great help for me because now I can find and connect to free wifis with the fastest connection. Internet really goes slow when many people are connected to it. -__-""

    "This app is mostly on monitoring internet speed and connected devices. It also has very easy and understandable interface. Though the app suddenly slowed down after the latest update and I don't really know what improved."
