Ratings and Reviews
Good for Casual Snooping
The app itself is not that unique; most of the information it provides through the GUI can easily be obtained via the command line (assuming you know how to use your shell). But a stable application that looks quite nice and is fairly stable is most definitely worth something in my book. If there were ever a more full-featured version that came out, I would be sure to buy it.
One thing missing
It has a large variety of network information but omits traceroute, a long-time standard tool for looking at current routing.
It might have been great.
Great little utility for $2.99
Does a great job scanning networks and providing quick infomation. For $2.99 it really can’t be beat.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
