WiFiFoFum (for WinMo & Jailbroken iPhones/iPads/iTouch

 

WiFiFoFum is a WiFi scanner & logger. Versions are
available for WinMo & jailbroken iPhone/iPad/iTouch
devices.

If your mobile device is GPS equipped, it will log the
name & lat:lon of whatever access points it receives,
as KML files.

For the UNIX/Linux users; I have created a trivial AWK
script that will parse the KML formatted files for
open access points ... and write them in Garmin-CSV
format.

If you like my AWK script; contact me at: rainsux@hotmail.com

Note: I will not help you jailbreak an Apple device.

My initial experience:

Last night I drove ~20 miles to a car club meeting. I
logged 10,284 access points, of which 243 were open.

Umm sounds like a great app

Umm sounds like a great app ... but I will have to wait for the android version..

Open WiFi on iPhone to see sites

On an unbroken iPhone you can go to Settings>Wifi and see the open and named routers it can receive. Apple has removed the apps from the App Store that could do this directly because, I believe, they used Apple's restricted APIs. BTW the iPhone cannot receive 5ghz channels but the iPad can.

Your alternative does not ...

Does not log.
Does not export.
Does not georef.

And your wish is granted

I've been a big fan of WiFiFoFum since its introductory days on Windows Mobile--the good news is that its creators have recently ported it to Android and it's available for free via the Android market.

Of note--no rooting is required for this to operate--it "just runs", similarly to its Windows Mobile cousin.
