Ping Tool application for Android

device-2014-03-26-225039Sometimes you would like to detect if a remote host is reachable. On a PC you can run the ping command that uses ICMP packages to detect it, but of course, it’s not easy to use this tool on Android.

So I’ve just created a Ping application that can make your life easier. Compared to other android-based ping applications, this tool gives you a nice, human-readable format of the ping result. You can order the results by packet size, response time or TTL value. To order the list, just click on the underlined labels.

Also you can get a detailed result for every packet, by clicking on a line, the application will display the status of the current packet and the statistics information of the packets until the selected packet. So if you selected 100 packets to be sent, by clicking on the 50th packet you can see the packet loss, the min,avg,max response time from the beginning until this packet.

What’s more, you can export the full list in csv format, so you can process them later by Excel or other spreadsheet software and make a diagram for example about the response time vs the elapsed time.

You can download the application here: Ping Tool on Google Play

And here are a few screenshots about the application:
