Just hold up your smartphone and you'll see hotspots around you. You will see at a glance its intensity (bars) and how far it is. You can apply filters on your search. For example, just showing open hotspots, WeFi, Locked or Coffee Shop. What's more you can select if showing hotspots scanned hotspots or out of range hotspots (enable GPS and download WeFi to get hotspots out of range too).
You will get the hang of this app quickly due to its simplicity. We're missing though extra features like filtering by distance or 3G better network zone. Its main catch is that if you're close to several hotspots, it will be shown overlayed, and it will be difficult to select only one.
Lookator has been developed by LoFT, an emerging developer who has just launched this app on the market with remarkably success.
Lookator is a great tool to see at a glance WiFi hotspots around you. High recommended.
