  3. Introduction


Touchstone Mobile for Android devices is the first (and only) mobile application for RF Explorer handheld spectrum analyzers. Like Touchstone and Touchstone-Pro, the Touchstone Mobile app turns data collected from RF Explorer spectrum analyzers into highly graphical charts and displays, enabling users to more readily visualize the RF environment, monitor RF signals, troubleshoot RF issues, and detect sources of RF interference.

OTG Cable -- Android connected to RF Explorer

Touchstone Mobile offers a variety of diagnostic views of the data captured by the RF Explorer device. Employing multiple views of the data enhances your ability to gain a better understanding of the local, RF landscape in which your wireless network is operating.

Touchstone Mobile -- RF Spectrum Analyzer Software For Android Devices

Touchstone Mobile features two different Scan Modes: Spectrum Analysis, and Monitored Frequencies. The Spectrum Analysis charts provide an overall picture of RF energy signals in your environment. As the name suggests, these charts measure all RF energy across a frequency range and chart the signal strength of the frequencies in the range currently being scanned. The Monitored Frequencies mode allows you to monitor specific frequencies.  For example, in the setting of a live performance where it is important to monitor the channels that have been assigned to wireless audio devices, the Monitored Frequencies feature can be used to ensure those channels are not being impacted by other sources of RF transmissions.
