Wifi Collector 1.00
Detect local wifi networks with your Android device

Wifi Collector is an Android app which detects collects data on wireless networks as you walk or drive around.

Notably, Wifi Collector is the first Android app from Windows utility specialist NirSoft.

The app has a very basic interface, but is functional enough, recording plenty of information about any local networks: their name (SSID), MAC address of the access point, manufacturer of the access point, signal level, channel frequency, channel number, security (WEP/WPA/WPA2), WPS support (Yes/No), date and time that the network was detected, and the network's location (longitude and latitude).

As with NirSoft's PC tools, you can export this data in various text formats (CSV, HTML, tab-delimited).

Wifi Collector does go a little further, however, with the ability to save the network locations as a .KML file, meaning you can view them all on Google Earth: very convenient.

Verdict:

Wifi Collector doesn't collect or display as much network information as NirSoft's Windows equivalents. It does enough to be useful, though, and of course is easier to carry around when you're doing a local site survey.

Does the app also represent a new direction for NirSoft? We'll be interested to see what happens next.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
