Deep Dig is an advanced DNS lookup utility with DNS trace support and history. With it you can quickly lookup DNS records by simply specifying record types, custom servers, ports, and other options right in the query, like you do in the dig command line utility.

For example, if you need to lookup domain name server records for domain from authoritative servers, then you can simply type in the following query: ns +trace

· support for A, AAAA, ANY, CNAME, PTR, NS, MX, SOA, SRV records
· support for "-t type" option or just add record type into query
· support for "+trace" and "+all" options typed in query/hostname field
· support for custom DNS server and port via "-h host" and "-p port" options
· support for custom DNS server "@server:port" option typed in query
· support for DNS queries to local multicast IP addresses (automatically)
· support for querying Bonjour/mDNS servers
· support for querying LLMNR servers
· automatic reverse DNS (PTR) record lookup when you type in IPv4/IPv6 address
· automatic Geo IP country lookup on resolving an IP or domain name

· Spyglass - augmented reality & GPS navigator
· Scany - Wi-Fi/LAN network scanner

Life in Truth ,

Works well, but becomes unresponsive when...

The app works well, but hangs and none of the buttons work when I clear all the query results. Only way to get back to using again is to uninstall than reinstall.

linux DIG command , exactly what i was looking for!

this app is essentially perfect for what it does, gives you FULL access/use of the linux dig command for dns , on your iPhone.

Thanks developer (his other network related apps are excellent too i use them as well)

No DNS command line option supported

Would have been a great tool if this app supported dig command-line options like ‘+dnssec’.

Cannot say ‘five stars’ yet, but it will do ‘+trace’ (and mistakenly send +trace along with the DNS query and produce a trace output; that is all.)
