"Indispensable tool for mapping network coverage."
Version: PING 1.7.10
I believe this is the best Android application for performing Pings and DNS lookups. However, what makes it truly unique and indispensable is the ability to create Google Earth maps of Ping locations. This feature allows you to map network coverage. For example, cellular operators can identify locations where coverage is lacking - or network administrators can map outdoor Wi-Fi coverage on a university campus. While sending Pings, the application notes the current GPS location and creates a Google Earth map (.kmz file) with a push pin for each Ping. One can Ping while driving or walking a route and later view the route and Ping results along the route. Pings (push pins) are color coded to indicate Ping success or failure - as well as the Ping time in milliseconds.
No cons from my perspective.
If you are interested in mapping the coverage of a cellular or Wi-Fi network, you will definitely find this application useful.
