Discover your network
Pinggy is the easiest way to find out who is using your network at anytime.
•Is your network slow? Find out who is using it*.
•Are your kids using your laptop? Just take a look at the Visor.
•Is the computer of your coworker running? Pinggy will tell you.
Knowing what's happening in your network was never easier! With two scan modes:
•The fastest mode, specially directed to people with no time to lose. In less than a minute, it will tell you nearly all the devices connected to your network**.
•The slow mode, specially directed to people who like control. In only five minutes, you will find out 99.9% of the devices connected to your network.
Also a new safe mode will come in a future update for very poor signal networks.
Light, unintrusive, easy to use, customizable and with Growl support. Pinggy will use less than a 0.1 percent of your computer horse-power and needs very low memory capacity. It is also compatible with any Mac computer, from a Mini to a Pro. It will even work like a charm on an a Air!
Just click on the support link for feedback or any kind of help, we will be pleased to hear from you!
* Pinggy will not check the data traffic of the devices using your network
** time depends on the number of devices connected to your network
*** only compatible with type C and ipv4 networks (most common at home)
What's New in Version 1.3
New scan system, much more faster and precise:
- Fast scan is now Light scan, gives more with less CPU and network traffic
- Slow scan is now Hard scan, don't lose a detail. Consumes more CPU and network traffic
New history window in preferences
New clients list in preferences
Visor Detail window improved
Bug fixes and memory improvements
In brief the app does its job as advertised. However, the icon could use a more brighter color palate. Additionally, I would have given the app 5 stars if it gave more detailed location data. Such as the state and perhaps even a city of devices that it detects utilizing your network.
Even so, I enjoy the easy of use as well as the ability to add custom names to devices that it detects. In sum this is a good app with great potential.
Perfect app for Home Network Monitoring
Gives a quick synopsis of all online/offline systems with almost zero config necessary. Great job!
This App is awesome
Great interface, easy to understand and works like it is described to work.
