Amazing app, UI and app in general desperately need an upgrade
I would give this app an automatic 5 stars just because it’s useful for on the go learning of packet tracer, but as most I have one problem. This problem being optimization for mobile, the UI is a little horrendous and i can work with that, but it’s the screen size is clearly still making the app more optimized for iPhone 8 and below. It could really, and really is an understatement, it desperately requires an update for optimization, resolution, usability, and in general just needs a complete revamp. But don’t take the negatives into account immediately as it’s use nearly outweighs the cons.
I use the computer application as a tool for the CyberPatriot competitions, so I decided to download the app for some practice away from my computer. I didn’t realize how absolutely awful it would be. The screen was constantly way too zoomed in, the UI was very hard to navigate, and there are a lot of missing features. After about ten minutes I finally found all of the stuff to set up my required PCs for my project, then it wouldn’t let me connect anything because the interface was so huge, that it gave the work field a quarter of my screen, where it needed about half of it to even be able to connect the two computers at a distance where you can tell which is which.
I would just recommend getting the desktop app if you can, because of how much more comprehensive the desktop one is.
I just did my last minute homework!
I didn’t have my hopes up for this app since mobile versions of these kinds of things aren’t the greatest. I left my hard drive back at home during spring break and I had an assignment due tonight. Naturally, I’d download Packet Tracer onto my school computer, but had issues with the disk and didn’t have time to figure it out or wait until after my work shift to redo the assignment (I get off at 11PM and the assignment was due at 11:55PM). I was amazed at how I could still do the things I normally would need to do on desktop. This app is an emergency gem!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
