Packet Capture Apps

Sorry, these apps are Android only...

Being an old network guy, I find it invaluable to see data as it's flowing on the network.  For Mac and Windows computers I use Wireshark, but that's not available on my Pixel 2.  A couple app alternatives that I've tried are "Packet Capture" and "tPacketCapture". The first one is good for immediately seeing data, as shown below, but it lacks any further depth of analysis.  The second app just captures data with no display, but the data can be saved in "pcap" format, which can be transferred to a program like Wireshark to perform very in-depth analysis.
