This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Vtrace is a visual traceroute application that shows* a list of the network servers from your machine to a target ip address or hostname and it attempts to place each to their corresponding location on a map.
The map display consists of a pin for each hop that can be clicked for information and to open the address in safari, the color of the pins change from green to red reflecting the latency of the hop.
On the back side a address can be entered to start a trace, and a detail listing of the last trace can be seen, tap and hold a item to copy it to pasteboard, rotate the display to show more information like the host name.
*The ability to show and determine hops depends on your network's routing policies, if the packets are filtered no hops can be determined.
What's New in Version 1.4
iOS 7 rewrite
I was looking for a traceroute, this is a visual traceroute, with text data available too. It's not often an app exceeds expectations, but this one does!
Illustrates beautifully the jumps data will need to make to reach its destination.
Nice and thanks!
