iNet - one of the the best network scanner for iOS since 2009. Made in Germany.
iNet - explore your network!
Find out about security risks and keep your network under control. Which devices are connected to my network? Are they online? Which services do they provide? Does somebody use my wifi network without my knowledge? These and other questions answers iNet fast and simple.
With iNet you know exactly what's going on! This easy to use App outlines a computer network even to the unexperienced user. And iNet never phones home, your data is absolutely private on your iPhone.
iNet provides you with information about networks your iPhone or iPod touch is connected to. Its very easy and user friendly design even allows the unexperienced user to get a profound and understandable overview of a network and the running services.
In the current release of iNet we implemented the following features:
• Network scan
• Bonjour browser
• Device info
• Wake on Lan
• Sleep on Lan (Macintosh only)
• Extensive help section
• Send scan results via email
iNet shows the devices connected to your local network, e. g. a computer or router, along with their name, IP and vendor. iNet discovers and distinguishes between windows and macintosh computers with different icons. For most Apple Computers the particular computer model can be seen. Find out the name and IP of the connected devices as well as the number of running Bonjour services on that particular device. (MAC and Vendor cannot be detected anymore since iOS 11) A classic portscan on the choosen device can also be performed.
The technology used in iNet scans on a very low level, therefore one can even find machines that don't want to be found, for instance a Mac OS X computer running in stealth mode.
Ping is a computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network or not. The ping section in iNet enables you to find out if an IP exists (if its ping service is enabled; otherwise you will get no response :-)). For your convenience we added a bookmark function to store often needed addresses.
Bonjour browser: (Pro)
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. The Bonjour-Browser in iNet scans the connected local network for Bonjour services, detecting any hardware that ist connected via the Bonjour protocol (for instance computer, router, printer, …) and any software running Bonjour services, e. g. iTunes or Filemaker.
Wake on lan: (Pro)
The outstanding feature of our implementation is that it is very easy to use and simple to setup. For more information see iNet WOL, our stand-alone tool for WOL.
Applications on devices communicate with the outside world through so called TCP ports. iNet detects wether a port is open or closed. For all detected open ports the service using this port is displayed by its real name (if available).
Device Info: (Pro)
The device info in iNet shows some information related to your iPhone or iPod touch, e. g. its name or its IP.
The modularisized structure of iNet allows to add more features and scanning methods in the future. We will implement by time more network monitoring tools, e. g. DNS-Querys, Traceroute, Whois lookup etc. iNet Pro will be updated on a regular basis as before.
If you want to know what's going on in your local network - iNet Networks Scanner gives you a profound answer.
P.s.: In case you need just the network scan feature of iNet Pro, use this basic version iNet - Network Scanner. You can always update to iNet Pro from within iNet to access its full feature set.
P.p.s: iNet never "phones home"!

Ratings and Reviews
The Best Network Scanning Application Available
I have had suspicions that someone had been using my internet network unauthorized for months. I downloaded multiple paid and free network scanning apps in order to find and eliminate rogue devices. I finally purchased the INET app for my iPhone and it is by far the most useful and impressive network scanning application available. It allows you to see all of the devices connected to your network that may be invisible to even your Internet providers app. I was scanning my network using my internet provider app and it could not see some hidden devices that The INET app found. Finally after much frustration, INET has allowed me to find the rogue devices and gives you enough details to eliminate them from your network. It also gives you a large amount of details for each device connected to your network.
I highly recommend purchasing the paid for version of this app. Even if you think no one unauthorized is using your internet, you may be wrong. This is by far the best network scanning application available on the App Store. It is probably the best designed application I have purchased for my iPhone.
Since iPhone 4. I’ve had this app
It's finally time to review. I have had this app on my I phone, consistently since about 2011. I have always found it a necessity, even after iOS stop reporting mac addresses and try to hamstring apps like this. It is still one of my most used and helpful apps not only for this phone but for other devices on my network. Now thanks to Files, shortcuts, and another app that I will not name, everything that I want and had since 2011 is on the iPhone, and iNet is essential to that set up. Of course it also tracks that it is always in the last place that you look a.k.a. once I found it I was done but it does meet all my needs.
Will remove if/when Updated
To be fair, I haven't contacted Dev for App Support. I was a network Pro member and paid yet due to my love for mobile games I have limited space available and when it comes time to Update iosSoftware a pop up screen said I didn't have enough memory for the update but click here to temporarily erase apps with infrequent use said they would be available to redownload in store. So far this is the only app that doesn't allow me to redownload as expected. No it keeps saying upgrade to pro Everytime I try to see something that should be available to me. What's worse it doesn't even show you the trial version it's blank screens picked with annoying half screen ads which is why I upgraded to Pro before my free trial ended. There is No Free Version of this unless you just need to verify who your isp provider is so you can contact them directly. There is nothing of value here for me, in fact. Maybe I will also contact apple support if it's not fixed by end of day (currently 10:15 am PST) I will permanently delete app and pursue/demand any refund for my subscription due to me.
