3. Beautifully designed apps that are intuitive AND nice to look at it

MAC addresses and IP addresses can be overwhelming to look at – especially for those not used to seeing network information. At Fing, we want to make home networking easy and accessible for everyone. A user friendly, intuitive, and approachable design is key to make networking more accessible for everyone.

That’s why we’ve put so much time and effort into the design of Fing.

4. Fing’s network scanning features keep getting better

We have big plans for Fing and we are constantly evolving and improving our interface. Here are the latest features we have added to the free Fing app.

  • In Fing 4.0 we added:
    • Web app: ability to access your network IP scans on the web
    • Network details: ability to save your previous network scans
    • Alerts: alerts for new devices detected compared to a previous scan, device status change alerts
  • In Fing Android 5 we added:
    • Rooms: the ability to add a room to the devices you scan
    • Dark mode: the ability to choose a dark or light background depending on your preference. (Be careful for the night is dark and filled with terrors.)
    • Enhanced Design: we’ve also enhanced the design of the app to meet Google Material Design standards, and be more user friendly to use in general.

And, we’ve also got many more plans for Fing down the road. Join the #InternetofFings today to grow together with us and come along for the journey.
