NSLookup is an internet utility to get domain's DNS information. It will help you to find the target IP address of a domain or see what name servers are set on a specific domain.
NSLookup for iPhone and iPad allows you to see the public DNS records of domains or sub domains. Then you may also query the NS and CNAME records. It's also possible to force it to get an authoritative response from main DNS server of the domain.
What's New in Version 1.3
- Now you can get the Pro version of NSLookup with no advertisement.
- Added support for IPv6 queries
Nice app... But...
This is a nice app with promise. There are only a couple of things that I see missing in this app. 1) The ability to copy results (especially IPv6 addresses). I know you can email the results to yourself, but that is cumbersome, if you just can't to copy and address or two. Being able to tap and hold on a result to copy the address would alone move this to four stars for me. 2) Server selection. By default, the app chooses a server to query. This is fine. It also lets you manually type in an address in the options. This is also good. But what I would like to see is a drop-down menu that let's you choose from well-know DNS servers such as Google, OpenDNS, etc, as well as the local DNS server for your network. 3) While it is very nice that you can tap on a CNAME record and drill down to have it resolve that host, this could become a 5-star app if it allowed you to click on an A or AAAA record, and get even more info about that IP range, etc.
It does the job. I wish they would fix one simple issue. Under "Options" if the name sever is left blank, it should behave the same as if "Auto" was selected. Sometimes I set the name server to a specific machine name and after I'm finished I have to remember to change it back to the "Auto" value. If blank "Auto" should be implied.
Have not had any problems like mentioned by others. Works every time. Have been using it at home to verify changes made earlier at work. It's quick and easy.
