Ping is as simple it gets - it just takes a hostname and a port number and checks the connectivity.

Tapping the ping button will use port 7 (ICMP) if no input is given. Any other port number will be checked as it is. If you don't have DNS in your network, try with IP addresses.

A history is maintained of all checks done so far. You can recall any item from the history by tapping on it. Use the delete button to clear the history.

I developed this application while working on Get Me Tones companion app for Windows Phone since there were some problems with my network and I wanted to check connectivity from the phone itself to be sure.

Update in 1.1:
- Fixed a bug where deleting history didn't destroy the item list in memory
- Changed default ping port to 135 since port 7 isn't really ping
- Ping button gets disabled until it gets a reply or times out

    Ping Pings! Simple, no frills, out does what it says without invading your privacy. Suggestions for future development: Add the ability to have a list of favorites (commonly pinged devices) that are not cleared when you clear the history. Also scheduled background operation with notification of a ping fails could be a boon to IT pros.

    Handy app. Would give it 5 stars if you could add favorites.
