Simple (free?) app for iphone, droid and windows to see wireless network information

I used inssider on droid a while ago to see wifi signals in the area.  

Any better apps you would recommend these days?  It seems inssider is now a paid version?

I think there's nothing for iOS, right?  Apple doesn't let you access the wifi system enough to see the info it needs, right?

There are no free utilities that I know of on iDevices via the AppStore.

Wifi Scanner is $2.99 - not free.

The AppStore has removed wifi scanning utilities do to a policy change.

An example would be this link.

where they put the disclaimer:

WiFi Signal Scan function is prohibited by AppStore. This app only provides network scan, not signal scan.
