Indispensable Utility for Pi-hole. Get it now!

I’ve been tinkering around with a Pi-hole setup, and I kept running into issues with using the web interface on mobile (sporadic Bad Request errors I couldn’t crush) so I decided to check the App Store and came across this infinitely useful Pi-hole Remote App. I didn’t even hesitate purchasing it, it’s well worth the asking price. The UI itself is hands down one of the cleanest I have ever experienced for a technical utility app. It’s easy to navigate and all the critical metrics and statistics information is cleanly and clearly presented and organized. It’s a lot more reliable than using the web interface on mobile and tons of customization and configuration options to tweak to your liking. It’s a highly intuitive layout. I have no problems whatsoever supporting indie devs that make quality apps such as this. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to future updates!

Amazing app, could be excellent

This app is a great way to view and manage your pi-hole. The design choices make everything you need up at the front of the app and it blends in well with iOS. You can view the tail of a particular IP address really easily and the details on each dns request are really helpful, allowing you to easily create blacklists. The widgets are a nice touch. So far, everything I need. There is room for improvement though; this app could be a game-changer. Group management seems to be ignored completely, including adlists. A built in whois lookup or information database about particular domains would be helpful, something similar to Little Snitch. If those changes were made, and a few small app bugs, it would be an excellent app. This is still an amazing app though, and I'm happy I found it; it will be used a lot! Thanks!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review! Management of groups and adlists is currently not possible due to limitations of the Pi-hole API I use. They’re working on a new API, I’m hoping that brings support for these things, then I can support it! A whois lookup is a nice suggestion, I’ll look into it. Thanks! Joost

Disabling doesn’t work

I bought this app to be able quickly disable/enable pihole blocking but it doesn’t work. I have to access through the web and disable. After that the app shows status disabled but when I tap enable it doesn’t do anything. Still I have to do it through the web access. I am disappointed. If this part doesn’t work so I can’t trust the other parts of this app suspecting that it might screw up services of pihole.
EDIT: I missed the API web token. When I added it to host settings in the app everything is working now. Sorry for the above original review.

Glad you found out what was missing 🙂 thank you for your review! - Joost
