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
Traces Too Slow or Stalling
I'm using Vtrace on an iPhone 5S (7.0.4) and the app is pretty much broken since the the trace time is taking minutes or just stalling out. I've tried different WiFi connections and the cellular connection to see if that was the problem but it makes no difference. I did try a different app that includes a trace route feature (Net Analyzer) and it performed in a matter of seconds as expected.
No longer works
It's not that the trace times out; it never gets started. Retina iPad; latest OS. App used to work. Deleting.
Not working any more!
Free version worked for a few days!
Stops after 1 trace!
