Very useful networking tool
The first application i use when I want to test my network, either at home or at work.
Its very easy and straight forward, also i can bookmark my most used IPs such as core switch gateway or MPLS router.
nice app- major issues easy for dev to fix
ok/decent ping app, however there are very clear and obvious issues that majorly affect the functionality. Both of these are very easy for the developer to fix.
It is just about impossible to select .5 ( or less) for the Ping frequency (interval) with your finger , this is because the developer awkwardly chose to use the sliding bar UI element vs better UI options (or keeping the bar but allowing users to tap the number and manually input what interval they want).
2nd there should be a history of any DNS or IP address you ping/enter into the ping field. (not awkwardly having to open bookmarks and retype your entries to add bookmarks).
or a Second better option would be an easy button next to the main entry line that is “add to favorites”, this way you only have to enter/type a DNS or IP address ones.
The bookmarks section should have a copy/clone option, out for when you need to enter several IP address is that are similar (for example at a single location with many devices on the same subnet).
Also it would be nice if you were able to press the ios dictation button on the keyboard when inputting an IP address - The developer has opted for an iOS keyboard layout that removes the iOS dictation button (sometimes we may not have both hands free and would like to dictate an IP address)
these improvements would make this ping app one of the very best ping tools on iOS
Decent free ping tool
I was looking for a ping tool where I could set the interval to something other than every second. This tool does that with intervals up to 30 seconds.
Two things I’d like to see: 1) make the interval choice even longer (up to at least once per minute) and 2) putting a timestamp on your records so I can identify when Connecticut goes down. I have a device that goes offline overnight and I’m trying to track down the exact time via pinging and logging it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
