Device Names not saving

Hi there, I have read a few posts regarding device names not saving. I too have this issue and it's a real pain. I want the app to sae my changes so when I re-scan I can easily see if anything has been added. Also, if I change the device names on my desktop app, it does not sync to the mobile app. Again, looking at the recent posts, this is because they are separate and do not use the same database!

Looking at the posts, neither of these issues seem to be fixed nor is there a reasonable answer as to how to sort them.

Are these going to be fixed in a future release?

Cheers in advance, Steve

    Hi @Scuba_Steve
    To explain, if you have a Fingbox and you are using a Fing Dekstop, then you will see two networks, one from the Fingbox and one from the Fing Desktop. As Fing Desktop is a separate product, it works separately and does not integrate with Fingbox as of the moment. If something changes with the future releases then we will let all users know. 
    Also, if you are using an Apple device, then as apple restricted from identifying the MAC addresses, then Fing App may create multiple networks provided Fing App is unable to read the MAC address and recognise if the devices are coming from same network or different. Only the network from Fing mobile app and Fing Desktop can merge, given the MAC address is being able to read by the Fing App. And if you select the Fing Desktop network from the Fing mobile app(not the Fingbox network) then if you have made any changes to Fing Desktop devices, you can view same on Fing mobile app.
