Ping

Ping


Ping is a network utility used to test the reachability of a host on an Internet Protocol (IP) network and to measure the round-trip time for messages sent from your hand phone to the host. It works on both 3G and Wifi.

ICMP ping currently only works in IPv4. IPv6 isn't widely supported on Android yet and is NOT available in this application.

Some features:
- Allows you to save popular hosts to ping
- Allows you to control ping packets count
- Allows you to control ping packet sizes
- Allows continuous pings (keeps pinging until you stop it)
- Allows you to set intervals between ping packets
- Allows broadcast pings
- Allows you to email ping results
- Allows you to ping in the background (this will allow ping to continue even if you rotate the screen)
- Contain Google ads* upon exiting app.

Tips:
- Long click hostname to edit host.
- Use menu button to Toggle Sound.
- Use menu to send us a Feedback for ideas and improvement.
- Manually edit /sdcard/ping.xml via a text editor for a easier way to add lots of host. Just copy the Google entry as a template for your host.

Please backup /sdcard/ping.xml before update.

Root Required Seems like a really neat tool, but you need to root your phone before you can actually use it (atleast on my Galaxy S3) Note this isn't the app's fault. Perhaps I will add a better review if I ever root my phone. My rating goes to the visuals of the app, its clean and easy to use, Im not going to give it a 5 stars because I can't use it to its fullest and that would not be a honest thing to do, so here take a 4 star rating!
