Easily Scan, Measure, and Monitor Networks with Fing App @domotz
Domotz recently acquired Fing, so it’ll be interesting to see if their service changes in the near- or far-future, but Fing looks like a reliable network scanner – for example, think how this could be used to find your ESP8266 or Raspberry Pi address. Simple design touches like the colored-highlights for the final segment of the IP address make it a pleasure to look, and some of the features like Wake On LAN could prove useful. Do you use Fing or some other scanner app?
Fing is the super-fast and reliable network scanning App. Easily discover all the devices on your personal and professional networks from your mobile phone.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

I’ve used Fing for a number of years now on my iPad, makes for a great networking scanning tool. On my Android phone I use PingTools Pro which is equally as good. Both are fairly ‘noisy’ though, definitely not passive, so I wouldn’t use it on work or public networks or any others that aren’t yours.. unless you have explicit permission of course 🙂
Thanks Ollie. I was unaware of PT Pro. There are some useful features – for instance the Watcher and IP Calculator – in that app too!
