I like the graphical chart. Nice for selecting a channel for your hotspot to minimize interference from nearby hotspots.

Provides much better information on signal strength than Windows built-in signal strength status.

Very simple to use, and finds networks I wouldn't know were there otherwise, just wish I could try to connect to them from its interface.
