Easy frame captures using your Mac's built-in Wi-Fi adapter.


Requires macOS 10.10 or later.

Airtool is a system menu bar application that allows you to perform frame captures using your Mac's built-in Wi-Fi adapter with only a few clicks. You can perform captures on single or multiple channels, and automatically launch Wireshark, your favorite Mac protocol analyzer or a custom script for post-processing and analysis.
