      iOS wireless network scanner

      Just seen this and did not know you could do it on iOS
      Worked for me on an iPhone and iPad.

      Download the Airport Utility app (an Apple airport is not required)
      Once the app is downloaded, Go to the iOS Settings > Airport Utility
      Turn on Wi-Fi Scanner
      Start up the Airport Utility app, touch Wi-fi Scan, then choose scan

      Walk around your house and see all the reported networks, hotspots etc.

      Does it give you signal strength etc?

      One of the main reasons I switched to Android way back was beause apple stopped apps from doing wifi scans, the only way to do it was to jailbreak the iPhone. I use the Android wifi scanner app(s) on my phone a lot for work.
