Fing 3.0.1 on iPad
The mobile version of Fing makes scanning, identifying and securing your network easy.

Staying on top of what devices are currently connected to your network can be a real chore. Your router may have some basic options available through its web-based interface, but if you’re looking to take a more detailed audit of your network and what’s connected to it (overtly or otherwise), you’ll need Fing.

Fire up the app and it’ll immediately invite you to scan your network for connected devices. These appear in a convenient list, complete with IP address and identifying marks where possible – typically you’ll be able to identify the device by its manufacturer.

Once devices have been identified, tap one for more details – this opens a new screen from which you can apply labels and an icon for more easily identifying the device in future. You can also see what services the device is using – useful for performing security audits – as well as ping the device and even attempt to wake it using the Wake On LAN feature if the device supports it.

Fing works with multiple networks too, so once your home network has been audited, take it to your workplace and perform a separate audit there too – tap your network name at the top and you’ll see similar labelling options appear, along with the ability to pinpoint your network on a map.

Users can also sign up to a monthly Fing membership, with prices starting from €5.99 (around $8.30) per month - a 15-day trial is available. Features include cloud sync, remote discovery and service monitoring. A paid-for account also unlocks some features in the mobile version, specifically the ability to view logs.

Verdict:

Fing on your mobile is a joy to use, and will help you audit your network and close security holes in no time.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
