Version 2.3.0

Added

  • Live-Tile support (only available in Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher) [PRO version only]. Live-Tile explained tutorial
  • IPv6 support for private and public IP-Addresses.
  • New filter option: Hidden networks [PRO version only]
  • New tutorials and help for problems on my website (e.g. Live-Tile, connect to networks, upgrade to PRO).

Improvements

  • The last ten networks where you checked "Connect automatically" will now be remembered so you don't have to check the checkbox every time again (it will only be remembered if you hit the connect button). [PRO version only]
  • Updated icon for "Link-Speed" (only available in Windows 10 version 14393.0 or higher)

Bugfixes

  • The website links for the Changelog, FAQ & Tutorials are now changed to the real once (not sure why the subdomains stopped working, sorry for that). The shortened "http://wifianalyzer.help/... " domains are fixed already by moving it to another Domain-Provider.
  • A few words in the Dutch & English translation.
  • On smaller screens, the dashboard should now break the lines so you can read all the information.
  • Message-Box should now be shown if it was closed by the system before (until now an app restart was needed to fix this).
  • Taiwan is now shown as part of China (on the "Change region" page).

I need your help to improve the App-Store listing!

Keywords are very difficult to guess (especially if it is not your native nor spoken language). You can help me by just select the language and then type into the "Keywords" field what you would search for and expect to find my app... Thank you!

Version 2.2.0

Added

  • Polish translation
  • Wi-Fi adapter can now be chosen (replaces the primary/secondary switch).
  • Rotation-Lock orientation can now be chosen (e.g. Portrait, Landscape, ..), this is a PRO feature and only works if the rotation is been triggered by the sensors (maybe you have also to enable tablet mode on Windows 10).
  • CommandBar-Buttons have now the text besides the icon in case the width of the windows is wide enough. This only works with the "Anniversary Update" version 14393.x or newer.

Improvements

  • The hotkeys are now only be shown if you have a keyboard connected.

Bugfixes

  • UI is now better usable with Text-Scaling enabled.
  • The Num-Block numbers 1-3 are now also working as hotkeys (if the Num-Block is enabled of course).
  • Various other fixes including reliability.

Version 2.1.11

Added

  • Russian translation

Improvements

  • The connected network should be always shown correctly now (Yes, I finally found a solution to this problem, so no more SSID warning box from now on). It should just work now, including roaming through your repeater network.
  • I changed the default color theme from "Accent" to "Complementary" (only affects new installations or in case you reset the app). The new "Complementary" color is the darker blue color tone from Windows 10.
  • The Bandwidth in networks is been removed now because I can not detect it anyway and now you can see the more important information also on smaller screens.
  • A little tweak to the UI, so the "dBm" bars are a little bit longer on larger screens.

Bugfixes

  • Rating does not count networks with the same SSID on the same channel as your connected network anymore because these are most likely part of your repeater setup and should considered friendly.
  • New Mac-Address manufacturer service (because the old one is offline for some reason).
  • Color theme changes should now be applied to all elements incl. the panes (requires an app restart).

Version 2.1.0

Added

  • Tutorials which you'll find a link in the app ("About & help") or here.
  • Explanations of errors/problems via URL-Link which point to the correct part within my tutorials.
  • Spanish translation
  • Japanese translation
  • "No networks found" will be displayed below the spinning circle at startup/resuming in case there are no networks found.

Improvements

  • Performance (including faster app launch)
  • The speed meter/beeper could eventually respond faster but this heavily depends on the hardware too. (I decoupled it from the rest of the Dashboard so it updates as soon as I get the data now)
  • Secondary adapter should now work without the primary one being enabled (more details in my tutorial "Settings explained")
  • Updated FAQ

Bugfixes

  • The tooltip for "Send mail" now works again, in case you need the mail address.
  • The spinning circle disappears more accurately when the UI has been updated and will now appear again in case of some problem where the UI would not change otherwise (like mobile hotspot turned on).
  • The channel counter now works on the connected channel too.
  • Various little fixes to the UI.

Version 2.0.3

Added

  • Beeper (including the ability to change the volume in settings)
  • Filters can now be remembered between sessions (switch in filters)
  • Ability lock screen rotation to portrait mode.
  • The borders of the signal strength can now be changed (from 0 to -150 dBm, the standard remains -10 to -100)
  • Especially to improve performance, I give you the option to only calculate a certain amount of networks per channel per scan… this also can help to make the graph view more easy to read (in settings)
  • You can now delay a scan up to 5 seconds if you wish, this could also be good for performance (in settings)

Improvements

  • Hidden SSID looks now like this "••••••|HIDDEN" instead of "******|HIDDEN"
  • Portuguese translation
  • Attempt to improved color variety (I calculate them, so one specific network has always the same color on the same device, even if the app is restarted)
  • Explanation why the location is needed (a few did not know this)
  • You don't see stars anymore in case you are connected to the other band (this also confused a few of my users)

Bugfixes

  • If you use multiple SSID's on the same router and channel (like a guest network), it will not be calculated into the rating anymore (and will also not shown on the graphs)
  • I fixed the channel rating for 5 GHz, which did not work (sorry for this)
  • The Region-Pane does not block the refresh anymore

 

From the beginning, my goal was to make the free version completely usable which has all the necessary features, but if you want more convenience you can upgrade to PRO.

PRO-Features

  • No upgrade to PRO tab
  • Beeper for signal strength
  • Connect to networks
  • Use filters
  • Prevent screen timeout
  • Lock screen rotation
  • Change signal strength borders

Of course, I'll give you the ability to try out the PRO-Features. (Go to "Upgrade to PRO" for more information)

 

In the newest Insider Build for Fast-Ring on Desktop and Mobile (Version 14342), the link to open the mail app does not work (WiFi Analyzer will crash). This is not my fault, therefore I can do nothing to fix it... hopefully Microsoft will address this in the next Version.

Version 1.7.25

Added

  • Dutch & Turkish translation
  • Language selector (language you want to use has to be installed on the system, please check the FAQ for more information).
  • IP-Address & Subnet on the dashboard.
  • If the rating pane is minimized you now have the recommended channel marked in the graph (can be disabled in the View-Button).
  • Network count per channel added on the graph (disabled by default -> View-Button).
  • While looking on a band while connected to the other, you now have a little indicator for this (because the rating does not work in this case).

Improvements

  • App start improvements (less splash screen but more accurate spinning circle), so you see better what the app is currently doing.
  • You now see your current channel highlighted in the rating pane (this way it is easier to see how much it could be improved).
  • The error message for the bandwidth mentions now the FAQ (there is nothing I can do about this, I need Microsoft to add the API's to the platform first).
  • The manufacturer is enabled by default now and the setting is been removed (it will only download if your data-plan allows it -> presuming Microsofts implementation works correctly ;) ).
  • Attempt of better color distinction (I don't simply use a list with different colors, so the same network has always the same color)

Bugfixes

  • Frequency format will now be always 4 digits (5.200 GHz instead of 5.2 GHz).
  • You should not be able to connect to an OUT OF RANGE network anymore.
  • The Region-Pane is more responsive at the first app launch now (it also should not disappear automatically anymore).
  • When changing to the network tab, the view should refresh faster now (depends on the performance of your device ;) )
  • Better stability

Version 1.7.0

Added

  • Italian language
  • Bangla (Bengali) language

Improvements

  • FAQ-Link moved to "About" (Thanks for this feedback!)
  • At startup the app will check whether the Link-Speed will work on your device or adapter and will change it to the percentage in case it isn't because it confused some people.

Version 1.6.2 (End of preview)

Important

  • For those of you who need more languages, I have good news too: The most requested Chinese Simplified & Italian will be among the next I will add in the coming weeks.

Added

  • Link-speed functionality (but it doesn't work on all devices or adapters, sadly it seems all the Lumias with Snapdragon S4 don't support it).
  • Russian region and updated channel list.
  • You now see the frequency (range) and bandwidth for the channels (but there are no API's to detect the channel bandwidth correctly, hopefully MS will add them at some point).

Improvements

  • Frequency button moved to the view button (eye) in analyze.
  • Network detail improvements

Version 1.4.3

Bugfixes

  • There was an issue which could lead to app crashes on mobile if there were more than one message box open at the same time. (This could happen especially when updating to a newer version because if the changelog message box is been shown and if you have for example your Wi-Fi turned off then you never get past a crash...)

Version 1.4.1

Added

  • Dashboard & "Info" button
  • New App-Icon (the old one was only a placeholder)
  • Info bar in case there is more than one network with the same SSID than you're device is connected too (this could help with repeaters)

  • You get your current channel as recommendation if it's one of the best.
  • Sometimes the switch between graph & timeline caused problems.
