iBox gives you access to a collection of apps that help you analyze your disk space usage, find and delete duplicates, and inspect your Wi-Fi networks. The program comes with a user-friendly interface, supports drag-and-drop actions, lets you choose between various duplicate filtering options, and much more.

The app includes 3 built-in tools: iDisk, iDouble, and iWiFi. Each utility brings you an intuitive interface, with easy-to-configure settings.

The iDisk tool enables you to analyze disk usage. You can select any of your local drives or storage devices that are being connected to your Mac. The program then scans your drive and reveals pie charts with drill-down capabilities (lets you check space distribution for subfolders). Unfortunately, the scanning process might take a while, especially if you're dealing with a large-sized drive.

iDouble provides you with a simple and quick way to identify and remove unnecessary duplicate files from your Mac. The utility allows you to preview the found duplicates before deleting them. You can preview images and videos, prelisten audio files, etc. It also lets you know how much disk space you can reclaim by removing the unneeded file copies.

Sadly, the iDisk and iDouble utilities don't provide you with Pause and Resume options for the scanning processes. The only way to get access to other app options while it scans your drive or folder is to cancel the scanning process completely.

Last but not least, iWiFi is a network analyzing utility. The tool displays the signal strength info, MAC addresses, band details, etc.

All in all, I think you can find better solutions for analyzing your disk space usage and Wi-Fi networks. There are plenty of other programs that provide you with extra features, work great, and come with reasonable prices.
