I just installed on iPhone and am happy with the tool. No weird surprises, good UI. Might be improved with nearby wifi network finder menu item. Today's update: dazzle (or freak out) friends by running "Local Network Scanning" at a public place. I found over a thousand devices at a tourist spot on the US E Coast. There were phones, pads, laptops; and all sorts of other stuff like POS credit card readers, some cameras, and thermostats.
Very good tool .
I use this quite a bit on my home network.
Great application! Very useful, complete and absolutely needed if you are troubleshooting network at home or in your office!
