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.

Professional, fast and intuitive to use

As someone who owns storage servers, CCTV and a website, being able to monitor their status instantly is amazing and is incredibly reassuring. The app is well designed but slightly limited unless you get the upgrade. Supports several features such as a colour blind mode and different refresh settings. Also features support for widgets which allow you to swipe to he left on your home/lock screen and view the status even easier. Overall it’s good and would recommend.

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.
