Fing review

Old No Comments on Fing review 19

For those of us who are technologists, having good troubleshooting and diagnostics apps on our smartphones can really increase productivity and enhance our ability to narrow down network issues.

One of the apps that I often find myself using is called Fing, which is available for Android and iPhone smartphones as well as iPad tablets. Fing offers complete network scanning, which displays a list of host names and IP address of all the devices on your network. It features automatic DNS lookup, Wake-On-LAN capabilities, ping and traceroute tools. It can track when devices go offline, and can share information via Twitter and Facebook.

Best of all, Fing is a free software with no subscriptions required. If you’re a technology professional, then you should give Fing a try and see if it’s of any usefulness to you.
