Just for something different how about making a list of the best free smartphone/tablet wireless apps.  Here are some of my favourite Android wireless apps:

WiFi Analyzer
My favourite WiFi scanner application as it shows the access point manufacturer.

The Android version of the extremely popular Windows WiFi scanner application.

Aruba Utilities
Shows the RSSI and PING response times (to the default gateway) as well as the supplicant information (BSSID, supplicant state and supplicant events - roaming, four-way handshake, etc.).  A really useful tool for fault finding - particularly roaming issues.

GeoCam Free
An excellent tool for use when utilising external antennas.  It allows you to take a photo of where the antenna should be pointed with the location (GPS co-ordinates), compass orientation, inclination and elevation.

Network Discovery
Not technically a wireless utility but is useful for testing what other clients/devices are in your VLAN post authentication.  Any discovered client can be port scanned.

An excellent SSH client for standalone use or use with the Network Discovery app.

An excellent iPerf app.  When combined with the iperf command in every Aerohive access point and/or an iPerf server in the LAN can give you an excellent throughput measurement tool.

Speed Test
Test Internet download/upload speeds.

Feel free to add your own favourite apps.
