Great Free App.
Check out Wifi Analyzer by Kevin Yuan. It analyzes and graphs all the wifi signals at your location and rates all the channels to tell you which channel on your router will give you the best wifi performance. In my crowded neighborhood, it seems to really help make the connection snappier. Sweet app, and free.

I used it and found 6 wifi signals in range of my house. 4 of them were competing for channel 4 so I switched our u-verse box to channel 10 and improved our speed a little bit.
Then I tried sitting in various places in the house, to see what the signal is like. I was amazed at how much difference even a couple of feet made. Even down to which spot on the couch made a difference. Closer to the router, wasn't always better.

Re: Great Free App.
I have a few more that I really like. Check out Deluxe Moon(keeps you up on the current moon phases). A new one I just installed I think is pretty cool is Scanner Radio, which allows you to listen to local police/emergency channels on your phone like the old Police Scanners did. Also I love "Smart Tools"...like a Swiss army knife in your phone.
