Get Detailed WiFi Information with WiFi Inspector

We’ve all been there, some time or the other. You know, those moments of excruciating discomfort when you have people over and a website just won’t load. Obviously someone’s hogging the limited bandwidth, so you have to ask to see who’s connected to the WiFi, but you are met only with indignant denials from all over. You know someone’s connected but you don’t know who. Logging in to your router and checking the list of devices is rather impractical, and no-one like impractical.

Mourn not, for XDA Junior Member LK Interactive Services has a solution in the form of the WiFi Inspector app. WiFi Inspector is a simple tool that scans your WiFi network and gives you a list of connected devices, along with detailed information regarding each in a clean and minimal interface. Additionally, the app allows you to store known devices, allowing you to spot intrusive connections by quickly identifying an unknown device.

Head over to the WiFi Inspector appplication thread to get started and begin identifying your WiFi network intruders.

This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
