Whats your go to OBD2 scan tool?

I currently own a wifi OBD2 dongle that i use with an iOS app called OBD2 Fusion that works well enough to pull basic codes and logs and such but does not pull ABS, airbag or transmission codes. I've been dealing with an ABS light on my 08 G6 so i thought it's a good time to see what else was available. I'm thinking of purchasing a OBD2 scan tool called Bluedriver that works with Android and iOS and retails for $99. It has tons of great reviews and i am wondering if any of you guys have one and what you thought of it,or what else would you recommend that also does ABS, transmission and airbags (priced within reason of course).

I got this generic http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005FJ0BRI?keywords=code%20reader&qid=1457880733&ref_=sr_1_25&s=automotive&sr=1-25 from Amazon. It seems to have picked up on 5 error codes on three different cars but did not work on a car from 2014 for an error in the diesel engine. It's good for generic codes and emissions. It doesn't do any specialized testing.

I use knock-off tech 2. Cost me 250$ and it does everything real ones dealerships use.
