Thread: [ANN] APlogger - native app. for WiFi logging

    Default [ANN] APlogger - native app. for WiFi logging
    I'm pleased to announce the first release of APlogger - a native iPhone/iPod Touch application that scans and logs visible WiFi Access Points (APs). It is similar, and owes much to, the popular iPhone Stumbler application, but provides a number of additional features:

    • summaries of the most recent scan and all past scans since invocation are displayed.
    • detected APs are logged in a tab-separated logfile for offline analysis. Logfile names are expanded using strftime().
    • the current location may be enumerated and is logged with each AP entry (sorry, no GPS support yet!).
    • one-off scans or periodic "auto-scanning" at a chosen rate may be requested.
    • the detailed view of the most recent scan may be sorted by SSID or RSSI.
    • the WiFi interface may be turned on and off with a simple control.

    Available to download and install now.

    Testers and suggestions welcome

    chris,

    Nice project. Is there any chance you'll add the ability to join a network?

    Yes, I know I can do this through settings right now, but it would be great to do this directly. It would be even better to have options to auto join specified networks in specified locations. I live in an urban area where some places have MANY choices. It would be nice to be able to set up a list of preferred networks.

    It would also be awesome to be able to change the minimum signal strength before auto joining. I find sometimes my phone will join a network whose signal is simply too weak to be useable.

    Sorry if these requests are way outside the scope of your project.

    Hi Dave,

    These are all nice suggestions, but currently outside of the scope of my project (e.g. I'm considering adding map images to APlogger to better identify locations where scans are taken).

    However, if anyone has knowledge of how to make the iPhone associate with specified access points (similar to OSX's airport command?), then please get back to me.

    How are one-off scans done?

    Assuming that auto-scanning is not currently enabled, you hit the button entitled "Mark and Scan". One scan will be performed, logged to the disk logfile, and the screen updated.

    You may, then, like to read this discussion - one to appreciate the "impossibility" of this task until replacement WiFi drivers can safely be pushed onto the iPhone , and two to appreciate that the average reader on the iPod touch Fans forum must be twelve years old .

    Hello!

    First of all, congratulations for that great work.

    Now to my problem:
    I have copied the whole APlogger.app to my iPhone 3G (FW 2.0.2) /Documents folder.
    Set the privileges of APlogger to 0755. Rebooted the phone.
    If I start the APlogger application it's shown for a second an then closed immediately.
    Do you have an idea, whats going wrong?
    Any logfiles to check?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Check out WiFiFoFun or WiFinder on the AppStore...it is the closest thing you will get.

    This app won't compile for SDK 2.2.1. Anyone know if there is a version available for OS 2.x or how to get it to work on a recent iPod Touch or iPhone?
