Special items: You can easily Flag Items that are special in the network, simply by tapping the flag from the device details page.
Favorites: You can also easily Favorite your important devices or those which you love from the device details page.

Device details and tools
It’s much easier to view, edit and export your devices.
All the tools already present in the Fing app are now bundled in a much more user friendly way. Access the following functionalities: Service Scan, Trace route, Ping and Wake on LAN (WoL), directly from the Device Details section.
We have also added automated DNS resolution to the Fing Droid 5 app.
You can now specify the type of network that you are scanning. Choose if your network is home, office or public. In the future we plan to add better fine tuning to your Fing app experience based on your environment.
Easily switch between the feature sections in the Fing app. Navigate between Networks, Devices, Tools and Fingbox sections in the app – simply by swiping or tapping the icons on the bottom menu bar.
Settings for the app and each individual network have been separated so you can access them easier.
We are proud to share that the new Fing Android app leverages Google App Design Principles! In short the app is much more beautiful than before.
