comparing that device to a generic android wifi scanning app is crazy.
they're two wildly different tools.

I run all the spectrum analysis I want, for free, using my own router's AP.
https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/articles/204950584-airMAX-Using-airView-to-Find-the-Best-Channel

Note that these look at _everything_ within the selected Wi-Fi spectrum.

https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/202755414/spectrum_analyzer_2.png

All for free (if you already have the device used as your router's AP).
https://community.ui.com/questions/Holy-smokes-Spectrum-Analyzer/6a205f6f-056b-431b-8637-327bf64c3e52?page=5

You just have to spend the $649.97 on the device. Kind of dumb
considering all the Wi-Fi radios are already present in the phone.

if the wifi radios are already present in the phone, then why does
their android app also need their device?

This particular device appears to scan the _entire_ spectrum.
 
if the wifi radios are already present in mac and windows pcs, why do
their mac and windows apps also need their device?

This particular device appears to scan the _entire_ spectrum.
 
the answer is because their app with their device is *far* more capable
than anything a phone or laptop can possibly do by itself.

Once in a while, particularly when you're not defending the lack of basic
functionality on iOS to the death, you say what is actually correct.

the comparison is ludicrous.

This particular device appears to scan the _entire_ spectrum, where I get
that exact same functionality (and more) for free with my router's AP.

that's a separate piece of hardware, which is not free.

but at least you admit that android can't do what you falsely claimed
it could.

In your desperation to excuse the fact that iOS is the _only_ platform that
has zero wifi graphical debugging tools, you're now fabricating that I said
that Android has a full spectrum analysis (which I never even once said).

*You're so desperate, that this is essentially your "ftfy" attempt.*

It means you're almost at the end of your methods to excuse that you hate
iOS not having any of the basic functionality all other platforms have.

We see nospam following the predictable path in increasing desperation...

1. First claim the imaginary functionality exists on the Apple App Store.
2. When that fails, say everyone else made Apple remove the functionality.
3. When that fails, say it's not Apple's fault - it's the developers' fault.
4. When that fails, say you should write all the app functionality yourself.
5. When that fails, accuse everyone telling the truth of being stupid.
6. What's coming up is the classic "ftfy" kindergarten rant from nospam.

All this because nospam _hates_ iOS doesn't have even basic functionality.
