APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Two excellent apps for testing your router and mobile signals.

Just a short article, no real explanations, just how good I find these two apps are.

I have downloaded about twenty apps on Android on Wi-Fi. One by one I deleted them as not being "up to the mark".

The two I was left with were both written by Andreas Kraemer who, I presume, must be extremely knowledgeable, both about Wi-Fi and about programming - as the apps are both extremely informative, and work exceedingly well.

They are both PEGI 3 which one would expect (PEGI 3 indicates the app is suitable for all ages).

The more useful one for the non-technical is Network Signal Info. This has a user base of between one and five million users and is user rated at 4.3 out of five.

The second one, which is only very slightly useful for the non-technical, but probably more useful for the technically minded (although this is very subjective) is WiFi Overview 360. This has a user base of also between one and five million and is user rated at 4.1 out of five.

They both have Pro versions, but I can't remember what I paid for them as the price disappears once one pays for them. I'd be grateful if a non-user of these apps could post the cost of the pro versions in a comment below. The Pro versions have a higher user rated figures. 4.3 for the former and 4.4 for the latter.

Finally, I'd be surprised if these weren't in other app stores as well. Please comment below if they are in your app store.
