Snap - Simple Network Area Prober
Do you ever wonder what else is on the network with your iPhone? Now you can easily find out with Snap! Snap quickly scans the network around your phone and discovers nearby servers, routers, even other iPhones! When Snap finds a device, it shows you the manufacturer of the device, any name information it could discover from the device, as well as the device's MAC and IP addresses.
For each device that Snap finds, you can also scan it for common services such as HTTP, remote login, AppleTalk, Microsoft networking, and many others. It even links directly to Safari for any HTTP services it finds, enabling you to easily explore devices on the network around you.
Snap is a useful security tool to discover open ports as well as a fun way to probe public networks to see who else is on with you.
- Automatic sweep of the local network to find devices.
- Identify devices by manufacturer and name information.
- Devices classified as router, server, phone, or computer.
- Devices that are discovered can be port-scanned with one touch.
- Direct link to Safari to explore discovered web services.
What's New in Version 1.02
Great app - didn't know whether to rate it a 4 or 5 star. Hoping for more features
Works well and quickly. I hope that so many features are not added that it slows the application down. I don't know about the low ratings by others. This is not a wifi scanner, it can (and only needs to) show hosts on the networks you're connected to. The feature to jump directly to a browser to manage network devices is just great! Now for the hopes. Hope for a bit more port information as others have mentioned; don't make it a full portmapper since that would slow it down and that's what PCs do better anyway. Hope for mDNS, DNS, DHCP info. Would love to have the option to list all devices on the network; don't want it to kick off automatically if I'm on a big network, but being able to see all printers, iPhones, PCs, etc. on a small network would be a great feature. Add these features and I would ecstatic and even to pay more for this application. Bottom line - great tool that works well. A few more features would make it awesome!
Simple Network Area Prober
This is much better at finding servers on a LAN than any computer utility I've tried. I fee really sorry for the developers seeing less than 5 stars because so few people understand what this utility is supposed to do. You must already be on a network to scan the network. IT IS NOT A NETWORK STUMBLER! I agree with other reviews, it would be nice if it had support for more connection protocols than just port 80. I don't know if it's the operating system's limitation or the program's that doesn't let it open port 21 in an FTP program, or 22 in an SSH program... Of course if they didn't let you open port 80 in the web browser than I wouldn't have even considered this feature so better one port than zero.
Excellent network scanner
I love this app. I will use it extensively in my IT job to get a fast and accurate view of the network. I would have gladly paid more for the quality of Snap.
My only gripes are the inability to export the scan data to email, but hopefully that will come next. I also wish Snap saved individual network scans for future reference.
It would be nice to either set the sub/super net scan range or see it after it is auto-detected.
