    I read somewhere that Apple removed all WiFi search apps from the app store.

    Is this true? Why? Prevent wardriving or something? Why would they do this? Everyone needs to scan don't they?


    What can we use to scan?

    Yes.

    Search, find, discover, scan...

    I just looked in the App Store and they seem to all be there. I did a search for Wifi Finder and plenty of choices came up.

    EDIT: Ahhh I see there is a difference between finders and scanners. You thought I meant finders but I meant scanners. Sorry. Take a look here.
