App works great, your able to get notices and see when new devices access the network your on. You can even block the device. Hey, if your kids are suppose to be off line at a certain time and connect after cut off then block their wireless device when your notified they tried to get back on.

Thus shows me every device on my network. I have it setup to notify me when a new device grabs an IP address.

Just a simple little app that does what it promises. . . In less time than it takes to find the installed app (uh, yeah, I have a few more pages than the factory install!) it shows you all you need to know. I didn't think it would matter that much to me, but I was curiously relieved to see I was hacker-free! And no useless, memory-wasting "bells and whistles" to bloat it up. To address a previous review concern, I don't think the app can provide any more information than what the connected device is "pinging;" if I wasn't ...

Icon Badge Doesn’t Match Network Dashboard
I really like this app. I have an ongoing issue on my home WiFi and my devices being compromised/hacked, which is why I purchased this app.
At first, it showed me a connection that I didn’t recognize. I took screenshots as they’ve popped up. Lately though, the icon badge indicates a bunch of outside devices using my connection. When I go to the main screen of the app(dashboard) the number of devices changes, showing only my own devices.
Today, the app badge showed 10 devices using my internet. I clicked on the app and the number went down to four, one of which it couldn’t identify. Even if I have all of my devices on, the most it should show is five(5).
Which raises the question, can these hackers quickly modify, hide or mask the devices they use while stealing the use of my internet? Or is there an issue with the badge count itself?
This issue where the number shown on the badge count- on my home screen, differing from the actual number in the app started when I first caught an intruder, because that device quickly left after I took screenshots of it.
I didn’t think to take a screenshot of the 10 showing on badge count. Going forward, I guess I should.
I greatly appreciate input from the developer.
Potential, but not there yet...
This app tells you the total qty and IP address of all connected devices. It fails to pull MAC address 90% of the time, and does not label devices based on available information such as upnp address which would eliminate the need to get out the computer to identify which devices the ips belong to. Self labeling or at least identifying which group (screens, phones, accessories, network, etc) would double the usefulness of this app.
Also, as previously mentioned by others "change name" changes the name of every device, (which is odd, and a giant PITA, also mine changes all names at will... whereas custom name option is device specific. Since the SID already contains the network name, I would suggest eliminating the name (not custom name) spot and instead placing the SID there instead.
I suspect that it is protecting from intruders I do know and appreciate that it picks up all my WiFi items within my network. Identifies by IP address, which means must go find out what item it is. TV, printer, iPhone and iPad, etc. You do have the option to edit the items name which is good. I still give five stars, product is needed and hope for many more improvements.
I have found that when entering edit name it will change all previous to the last entered item. As long as protect concurs that is the main reason for this app. Again thanks
