Works but very basic.

Useful app, but lacks basic features like reordering of list.
Would be nice if the ping frequency was much more customisable. All test frequency need to have the option to be in the millisecond range and per host. 1 hour minimum for background check is ok if you’re testing websites and alike but if you’re checking system critical devices then you to be in the millisecond or at least seconds range even if it is a battery killer it should be an option.
Logging would be nice.
App it’s a good idea and it works well, just needs to be less restrictive.
This app is worth downloading and paying to upgrade.

Excellent app, just needs some basic additions

This is a solid, reliable and very useful app. As others have pointed out, it would be *so* useful to be able to re-order the list. Also, it would be great if there was a display option to have just one screen “line” per host. That way you could fit more hosts on a single screen without having to scroll. I emailed the developer directly about these two feature requests, over a year ago, but received no reply.

So close to perfect

For the most part this app does what I needed. (After paying for the upgrade, totally worth it!)

I agree with other reviews here that more options for background monitoring should be available.

I also agree that you should be able to at a minimum reorder the list of hosts. I think grouping should also be an option, but one step at a time I guess.

Final request, syncing my list with iCloud to other devices.

I would still recommend this app though, especially if it’s going to be used in live mode mounted to a wall etc.
