WiFi analyzer for iOS?

Any one know of a good WiFi analyzer app for iOS? My sister is going to be moving to a new house so Ill need to do a site survey for her Google Mesh System. Considering the new house is double the size of their current one, I have concerns of WiFi coverage.聽

Every one I have used on iOS has either not worked or was missing features I needed. Do you have an old android phone or tablet laying around聽you could use? I keep an android tablet around for things like this, it's come in聽useful a few times.聽

I聽had one somewhere, but I cant currently find it. My old Android tablet is too old to be helpful as it hasn't been supported in years sadly.聽

There are a few, unfortunately I don鈥檛 remember which one I used since it鈥檚 been awhile. NetSpot seems like a popular one, but it鈥檚 a 7 day free trial and payed after that. I think WiFi Scanner聽might have been the one I used.

There is an app for macOS, its actually built into the operating system but its not real time and it has very limited features. Open Wireless Diagnostics > Window > Scan

In that window you will see your nearby networks and recommendations for what you set your wifi channels to for 2.4 and 5Ghz.聽聽

The issue is I need to measure signal strength so I know where to put my sisters Google WiFi pucks. They are moving from a small one story house to a larger two story house. She might have to pick up more Google WiFi pucks.聽

I did find my Android phone. It just sucks that we dont have an App on iOS or MacOS.聽
