    I have always wondered why users would want to jailbreak their devices? What benefit is there? And besides the annoyances with having to keep up with Apple's updates which kill the jailbreaks?

    On IOS devices i agree with you completely.. There is just one thing I wish Apple would do and that is to make available the API for their Wifi to devs so a program like WiFi Analyzer for Android could be made on the iphone. I talked to the devs and apple refuses to give them that API. I use that app on my old Android phone to set up Wifi networks as it shows range, Connect speed, Noise, Signal Strength of all routers in the area. Really helps with placing the router where every system will get maximum signal or if I need to use an WiFi extender.

    On Android though Jailbreaking can get around Samsung locking their almost new phones from the latest Android OS version. I rooted my S4 Samsung and was able to install an OS that runs great.

    Hey Dennis...

    Isn't there a Mac app that does the same thing? I've forgotten its name but I remember using it for awhile while it was free. I removed it some time ago because it's no longer freeware and it was 32 bit.

    Hey... I just remembered the name: iStumbler, and there is also NetSpot.

    Both of those will work for iOS. Signal strength measurement is the same whether for your iPhone or Mac.

    Checked iStumblers site. I bought that for my iBook many years ago. Nothing about an IOS version and I checked all over. That is a wonderful app.
