Ok, so you think it deserves such a bad rating ?


I have'nt load it yet so the raring is a non issue. I could'nt post the typo without giving it a rating which is stupid so your jumping to conclusions.


You could have selected Comment instead of Review in the reply menu.

Beautiful utility.

The only request I could make would be to make the return key trigger the start when you type in an ip address.

Should we just ask macupdate to delete everything you don't understand;-)

The dev is probably Nelly Furtado's brother. That alone would justify the download.

No Readme
+ No info inside installer
+ No readable screenshots on website
= I have no clue, what this software is about and how it does what it does!

I should let this deal with my network? Never!

It should be removed from macupdate.com til it's fixed.

It looks like a wrapper around nmap, but you can't be too sure when you can't see the sources. (I'll stick with nmap and wireshark (snort if I need to watch my incoming connections, or LittleSnitch for that as well.)


if you don't understand what this program does, or require a manual to perform a ping or port scan, then you don't really need it.
