Sigcon (WiFi and Cell signal customizable indicator icon)

Sigcon just became available in App World, but since it has been available in another store for a while already, an update is already coming up.  There have been a few suggestions in the other store's forum, and your suggestions are welcome also -- there is a free trial if you don't mind taking a look at it.

 

Sigcon (WiFi and Cell signal customizable indicator)

 

Suggestions already made are:

 

- Allow user to provide a separate custom icon for both the app icon and the status-area icon.

 

- Show current WiFi access point name

 

- Map the WiFi coverage to identify the locations and ranges of access points

 

 

Thank you

Hi, did you already realize that WiFi geolocation capability? Do you have any ideas?

Re: Sigcon (WiFi and Cell signal customizable indicator icon)

Looked into it.  Could estimate the coverage map of the one hotspot you're connected to as you move around, but don't think it's possible right now for the app to scan around and take measurements for everything that's available.  I could be wrong, and also haven't looked closely at OS 6, but right now we've just got OS 5 which refers to the HotSpot functionality not being fully implemented yet.
