    Obviously it provides a lot of info but to the general user is it of any value? Can I use the info to get me on to other networks or inspire world peace?
    Or should I just remove it?

    It is just a wi-fi sniffer, no real use to it other than additional information about the networks.

    From what I read so far, it is useless.

    I just like to know what connections are available in the area locked and open.

    But the wifi settings tell you what is locked and what is not. So on that front it does nothing extra. Just wondered if it had any use, clearly not so it's a goneburger!

    It also specifies what kind of encryption that the network is using...

    hopefully in the next release, they'll add the ability to see the actual names of the hidden networks, and maybe a "connect" button as well.

    but in way, imo, what's the point of knowing what type of encryption if you can't even get into the protected network?
