This is not functional on the RAZR with 2.3.5 It just shows some access points in a list before force closing. Hopefully this is fixed...

Tested it at home, was almost perfectly accurate to my router, untill I got some walls in the way and it went a bit mental, but it still told me the right direction to head for a better signal.

Doesn't work on HTC Incredible. Says to move in a figure 8 pattern but nothing ever happens.

STILL Absolutely useless. UPDATE: Every connection shows up in a single line in one direction no matter where the actual broadcasting device is. This app still does not work.

Doesn't localise well Still not being updated. Highly inaccurate locating capacity for wifi. More of a fancy wifi list than an AR app

Works on my Nexus 5 I was hesitant to try this app with all the complaints about all the icons in a vertical row. But it's definitely working on my device and is showing icons in different directions. It seems to be reasonably accurate based on the positions of my own Wi-Fi routers.

Not wprling Just doesnt work. It places all basestations at 1 line, which happens to be incorrect.
