This app does a great job of showing all the APs near you, along with a great deal of information about each one. It graphs out signals on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. The interface can start off pretty cluttered with tons of SSIDs, but a little tweaking will eliminate the clutter and help you see exactly what is on each channel. A great inSSIDer alternative.

Said about WiFi Scanner as an alternative


Another good (commercial/paid) alternative to InSSIDer. This too (similar to WiFi Explorer) shows list of WiFi sources and graphs of signal strengths. Also lists connected devices.
