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

    Mislabeled - its a port query tool. Not in the sense the traditional ping I was expecting.

    Works really well. Very slow on secondary network IP's.

    Works as advertised. IPs also work, as some reviewer mention it didn't. It would be nice to see the IP resolution for a hostname and response time in the output, if possible.
