Like the Force, Wi-Fi signals surround us, penetrate us, and bind our devices together. They’re also similar in that both are prone to dark spots. With the Force, it takes nine movies and 40 years to work out. With Wi-Fi, all you need is NetSpot.

NetSpot Pro visualizes, optimizes and troubleshoots wireless networks with any Mac. It offers a “heat map” of connectivity, so you can see any dead zones and optimize hotspot placement.

The Mac app offers much deeper functions, too, like checking radio channels, collecting survey data, and grouping access points in a bunch of different ways. It’s also a great way to perform internet speed tests. So, if you’re setting up a big Wi-Fi network or just having trouble with one at home, this app can restore balance.
