WiFiman is ideal for network device discovery and network speedtests. These features are conveniently accessed through the sleekly designed UI created by Ubiquiti. WiFiman contains no ads and is free of charge.
With the app you can easily list and analyze devices connected to your current network. WiFiman scans the whole network subnet and shows you all of the available devices with the applicable details, using Bonjour, SNMP, UPnP, NetBIOS, and UBNT discovery protocols.
Another core feature is the network speedtest. You can test the speed of your internet connection and save the results for later comparison.
• This release contains minor bug-fixes and stability improvements.

Super useful, especially the widget!
This app answers the question: “Is the network down?” Instantly.
One request: in iOS 13 the widget appears with a medium grey background and a slightly darker text color. It would be great if it could offer a little more contrast and follow the dark mode settings.

Thank you for your feedback! The widget thing will be improved in the next version, pretty soon. :) Peter
Inaccurate speed test
The speed test regularly shows higher bandwidth than you actually have. WiFiman reports 32Mb up and down on a connection that is 30/30. It shows 26Mb on a 24Mb pipeline. It may not seem like a big deal to most of you but inaccuracy is inexcusable. The Net Analyzer app has a much better speed test which matches results from wired speed test. This and the OOkla speed test apps are both off and inaccurate.
The IP scanner is meh. There are 10 other network apps that do the same thing. Plus, half the time devices will show up as “generic” even when I am actively using them while running a scan (e.g. my iPad Pro always shows up as “generic”).
PS - I use Ubiquiti at home and at businesses that I serve. I am a fan of their products but this app is pointless IMO. It offers nothing that other apps already do better.
Helpful info in one place!
This app does most of the basic network troubleshooting and information gathering that I do already on my Mac and other websites/apps, all in one place! It does a consistent ping of several IP addresses and outputs a line graph of the response time for each. It does the gateway automatically plus whatever custom IP addresses you want, I typically do several well-known public DNS servers. It has a nice speed test option, and scans for other devices on the network, showing you open ports and the ping response time for each. It also shows the apparent public IP address along with the name of the ISP. A great replacement/upgrade for the UBNT Discovery app!
P.S. Someone gave this a bad review because it isn’t a Wi-Fi analyzer. Apple removed the ability for third-party app developers to create Wi-Fi scanners, but they do give you the option to do it in their own AirPort Utility app if you enable it in Settings>AirPort Utility.
