    I'm wondering what apps you guys like the best when your out and about, and want to see if there is any available access points.

    I'm not jailbroken, so maybe some suggestions in the app store, or do you simply use the built-in one?

    I think Stumbler still exist, possibly under a different name now. Too lazy to check right now.

    The built in WiFi features are really good enough by fare. I have however tried both WiFinder and WifiTrak (which I still use) just because I want to be able to straight from the desktop into the list of connection points. (again, lazy) And there are green and red pretty colors. Which is nice.

    I use stumbler plus, not sure what repository its on but its definitely on cydia.
    I use it because it gives a lot more details than settings.app.

    I don't really use any of them. I find applications such as Stumbler Plus useful if you are looking for hidden wifi points, but even if you find them you still will not be able to connect to them
