Does anyone have a recommendation on an iPad app for monitoring a wireless connection? I'm looking for something that reports back on SNR, RSSI BSSID etc, and does not cost $100.00. I thought this would be easy to find, but I am having a surprising amount of trouble. Suggestions are appreciated!

Apple threatened a number of app developers who had released wireless apps on the Apple Store so overnight nearly all the good wireless apps on iOS disappeared.  If the developer did not remove the wireless app then Apple threatened to remove their access to the Apple Store.  This is why you have having problems finding wireless apps for your iPad.

There are a large number of wireless apps on Android from inSSIDer right up to Ekahau's Mobile Survey app so you may want to consider purchasing an inexpensive 7" Android tablet to do the wireless monitoring.
