More WiFi analyzer apps can be found in this article.
We’re going, to be honest with you, this app has mixed feedback on Google Play, but like most apps of this category. However, WiFi Radar is a more or less reliable app for detecting the WiFi spots on the map and it’s been on the market for a long time already.
The main principle of WiFi Radar is that the users mark the WiFi spots on the map – it means everyone can modify it. That’s why the information might not always be precise, but admins try to filter out as many fakes as possible.
Another interesting feature of WiFi Radar is that it can keep the statistics of all your WiFi connections and compare, how much of the time you are using your home network, work WiFi, public WiFi and so on. It’s not clear why though.

WiFi Overview 360 Pro
Now, this is a big boss app for everyone who is more than familiar with the subject. Among others, Overview 360 Pro is superior in everything – starting from the interface design to the details and technical capabilities that it has for the analysis of any network.

However, despite all those aspects, the functioning of the app isn’t that flawless yet. Especially in the widget mode it can show you various miscalculations and errors.
