Ratings and Reviews
Not perfect, but best I’ve found
Have at least 25 devices on my home network all over my 4 story home. This app comes in handy when I want to see what’s running, especially when something goes wrong and knocks me offline. A quick check with IP Scanner usually shows me where the trouble is. I have iPhone, iPad and OSX versions. Mostly they play well together, but sometimes loading saved scans or shared names will crash the app. That can be a bit buggy, but I’ve learned to deal with it. Overall, I’m happy with it, but learning its quirks took a little while. If you can deal with learning the quirks, go for it. If you expect it to be perfect every time you might get frustrated. That said, I’ve tried several apps and keep coming back to this one. Seems better featured and more reliable than others. I hope they keep improving it, but I’m not sad that I bought it.
Thanks A Lot, Apple💩!
Because Apple foolishly made it so third-party apps like this, can no longer read MAC addresses. Well, it makes using this app really, really, really, friggin' really, really hard. I still am currently giving 4-stars because I know the developer had no control over this.
But, yeah, thanks so much APPLE! Everything now comes up "Unidentified", and that is just super handy, let me tell you. Out of like 20 listings all but 3 are Unidentified. My online printer shows, my iPad shows up, and HAHA of course my Apple Airport Extreme shows up.
So, because of Apple's wonderful decision to mangle apps like this, IP Network Scanner, now is rendered all but useless. I would really like to know why Apple did this?? If they aren't engineering planned obselescence, since iOS 10, with my iPhone 6 Plus' battery. In hopes of making me angry enough at the constant falling battery to upgrade to the newest iPhone. They are taking breaks from that and ruining apps like this.
Again, thank you very much, Apple... 🤬🤬🤬🤬
And, to the developer, I assume it's not possible to fix this and find a workaround. But, if you can, please release an update that allows us to use this app like we used to be able to. Thank you if you can fix it.
Missing some key features
One thing I immediately noticed was the lack of a place to do input the desired subnet mask, so support for subnets larger than /24 is a little bit awkward. Also while setting a custom subnet to scan there doesn't seem to be a way to change anything other than the last octet of the "thru" address.. It would be less annoying except that it also fails to detect the current subnet correctly if it is larger, requiring one to scan a "custom" subnet for any of the sections with a different third octet. I may be missing sobering obviousso I will happily edit my review if I'm wrong. It seems like a basic feature for a network utility existing to discover more information about the current connected network. Because this isn't exactly a free app, I don't think this is an unreasonable expectation.
