I saw a very nice Android App called WiFi Analyzer.

It doesn't appear to have a IOS version.

Does anyone know of something for iPhone that will show graphic representations of WiFi networks?

Thanks

Not sure about the Android app, but there are iOS apps. But you can only run them from a jailbroken iOS device - Apple doesn't want people doing wifi scanning for some reason. I use something called WifiAnalyzer (see alanhardistry's link), and it works great.

But since I dropped my thinkpad to the floor for the n'th time; I'd consider this !

I'd invest in some seriously sticky gloves instead if I were you :)

The Oscium product is a wireless spectrum-analyzer, and for what it does, it's actually pretty cheap. But spectrum-analyzers are complicated systems. They're great, if you know how to use them, but damned-near-impossible to just "figure out". You'd need some serious training in radio-wave spectral-analysis to even have a prayer. In any case, it's probably serious overkill anyway.

With all due respect to the programmers, I have done too many hacks like Jailbreak in my time. I don't want to get involved with the extra maintenance work of jail breaking, even if it adds features.

Oscium looks great, and I will examine the features.  

If I could get an Android device very cheaply, would WifiAnalyzer work without a cell phone connection?

The analyzer should be using Wi-Fi, so no need for a cell phone connection.
