We have thought about developing a version of InSSIDer for the iPhone. Actually, we have already developed some working code for the iPhone that scans for networks. If we get more requests on this forum, we will be more motivated to get it done. *Let us know what type of features would you like to see.Thanks,Steve*
1st of all, thanks for the brilliant inSSIDER ! I use it with a USB adapter with a good success. The graphic view is an excellent tool and really usefull
I hope to buy one day a wi-spy usb key ( maybe santaclaus ;-)
I am also owner of an iPhone, and for the moment I did not found any accurate app around wifi.
Did you already place something in apple store ???
I hope Apple will accept your future app to prevent the need to Jailbreack the Iphone
Apple has allowed a few apps to go trough that use the built in WiFi with the iPhone (example: SlingPlayer Mobile, by Sling Media), but they are few and far between.
My guess on why Apple does not want approve apps that use WiFi is because they are scared that there will be an exploit found, and the Apple name will be branded like Microsoft (Even though it is a large misconception on Apple Security).
Looking into it, what I have found is, you have to know someone who knows someone to get your app approved that uses the 802.11 (or 802.15 if you ever want to have an app that does BlueDriving on the iPhone); or you must offer them a business deal.
It would be nice if an app could be made (even though I use the BlackBerry, which I find to be 100 times better).
