Lightweight WiFi Scanner

Lightweight WiFi Scanner


APscan mimics airodump-ng, minus the ability to capture packets

Why bother with heavy bitmaped interfaces and useless special effects, when you could use good ol' ascii!

- Lightweight
- Same formatting as Airodump-ng
- Optional colourization based on encryption type
- Sorting and filtering capabilities.


I made this app because all the other scanners on the market had lots of features I never used, especially when all I was looking for was an open or WEP network. I'm used to the airodump interface, so why not model it after that.

Due to legal reasons, wifi cracking in a market place app is not allowed. It may be possible using the mobile version of backtrack, but I'll look into that more when packet capture is less buggy.

Notable permission:
READ PHONE STATE AND IDENTITY
This is required by the ad provider (Inner-active) to provide advertising based on your rough geographic location (eg: the province/state you’re in). It also helps with targeted advertising. This is advantageous to everybody, the idea being you get ads for things you might actually care about, as opposed the usual “free iDevice” scam ads. That’s all the personal information APscan gives to the ad provider. It does not read or give away your phone number, email or anything else personal.

Happy hacking :D
