I prefer to use the paid windows version of Forscan. You can do more than the app versions, and the license is about $10 a year.
I have an OBDLink MX+ as well, and it is great, but for the functionality you need, you can go with the OBDLink EX or the VLinker FS. I also have both. Wow, just checked prices at Amazon. The MX+ is ridiculously expensive. The EX isn't as bad, but the vLinker is only $35.

If you decide to go with a different adapter, you need to have dual speed functionality. The cheaper units have a physical switch. Which is annoying to remember to toggle it the right way.
If you will stick with the app on a phone, if that phone is IOS, you will need an IOS compatible adapter. The MX+ is.
If you get a WiFi type adapter, I do not believe you will be able to do more advanced configuration changes, because Forscan software needs to download certain packages to do that. The problem is your computer is attached to the Wifi type adapter, so it cannot be attached to your regular wifi networking router. If you were a computer wiz, you could probably overcome that obstacle, but why make the process more difficult?
If you do decide to get the MX+, it includes a pretty nice app called OBDLink, with free updates and free enhanced OEM addons for many different vehicles and makes. The Forscan software is overall more comprehensive for Ford with configuration editing and module testing, but the OEM addons for OBDLink have a plethora of parameters that I have not found in Forscan. Right now I have OBDLink on my iphone configured to display the leakage resistance of the HV battery, the positive and negative leakage voltages, and the 12V battery current draw of the FFE. I also have a dashboard to show fuel trims, fuel economy, and cell voltages on my friend's Prius.
