    Do you guys use TestFlight on iOS for testing or is it just internal testing only?

    We do have a beta program! which we are planning to move here for a private group. I think we used test flight previously but now I need to check. We may have other packages to install!

    @VioletChepil You did indeed use TestFlight at one time.  I still have it sitting in TestFlight though it was for an older build I was testing for you.

    We've started using for Android (Google Play Beta platform) and for iOS I'm checking.

    Maybe expand a bit on the 'Bugfixes' section?
    So that individuals who are experiencing something very specific they can see if it's addressed in the most recent release?

    Are the release notes missing a Fingbox update, @VioletChepil? My Fingbox tells me it's on 1.14.5, release notes go up to 1.14.0...

    Let me guess... "Bugfixes"?  B)

    So, how does a bear sign up to be a crash test bear for the iOS version?

    Fing App 8.4.0 on iOS is now rolling out including the option to remove ads for all app users!

    We’ve got exciting news today at Fing! We’re starting the roll-out of Fing App 8.4.0 on iOS which includes the option to remove ads for all app users. Fing App 8.5.0 on Android is now out too. 

    Fingbox users do not see ads anyways, but now all app users can choose to remove them too.

    Cost for removing ads on Fing App 8.4.0 on iOS / 8.5.0 on Android

    There is a cost to remove ads but it's accessible and affordable and we hope you like the pricing structure.

    • $0.99 for 3 months

    • $1.49 for 6 months

    • $2.49 for 1 year

    Pricing is the same for USD/EUR/GBP. Other currencies get a converted rate from USD. 

    Fing App iOS 8.4.0 improvements and features: 

    8.4.0 (iOS)

    •  * Faster and better scanning on large networks (greater than /24)
    •  * Optimized SNMP and DNS lookups, resulting in less network requests
    •  * New in-app purchase to remove Ads and to experience Fing without distractions
    •  * Improved stability and fixed bugs

    Starting from iOS 13

    •  * Dark theme can be managed directly from the phone settings
    •  * Sign in into your Fing account with Apple
    •  * All Apps must request location permissions to display Wifi name and address 

    Last week, 8.4.0 was released on Android with the following updates:

    •  * Support for Android 10
    •  * Fixed bug on Android 10: all devices are reported as routers
    •  * Improved stability and fixed bugs

    Ads free Fing App on Android will be coming soon. 

    What do you think about the option to pay to remove ads on Fing App 8.4.0?

    What do you think of the new app improvements?

    Let the community know your feedback in the comments below!

    Cheers,

    $2.49 for a year? "It's a deal, it's a steal, it's Sale of the **** Century!" (Tom, "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" - 1998)

    Still, I'd rather the $99 for Life - with "Free" Fingbox :)

    Glad you guys put this option in though!

    A believe a Fingbox is more value, maybe a high in front money, but a it's good investment.
    Nevertheless, the option is welcome.
    Keep looking up!

    As others have noted, with Fingbox it's ad-free anyway. However as a former Fing user (pre-box) for many years I always liked the ad-free nature of the App. I recognize that revenue has to come from somewhere, so my first criterion when looking at a new App is to look whether there is an ad-free option with a price I'm willing to pay. (I do not even bother to check whether an App can do what I want until I have checked whether it can be made ad-free for a reasonable price.) I have always liked "Lifetime" subscriptions, but I am getting to an age where sometimes year-by-year payments might be cheaper.

    Thanks @pwmeek for the feedback. We're pretty keen to see how ads free works out for us. As you know being an app user for many years this is the first time we're trying it!

    I would like to see a pay once never see an ad option. I don’t mind buying utilities but I don’t like subscribing to them.

    I know everyone is different but that is my preference.

    Definitely a good idea to have done this in my opinion.   Can you give us any hints about how well it's working @VioletChepil ?!    Does it look like it's going to allow for accelerated dev of the product ?

    Definitely not much $2.49 for a year, and a lot more honest that some lifetime apps that in the end just change name in a couple of years to restart charging another lifetime purchase... Unfortunately won't  be appreciated by many people. I have a box so no worries. But got somehow disappointed to see ads in Fing... felt like the end of something good...

    The one thing ads have done is make me look at other tools that do the same task. I see one that has an ad and a no ads version for $6. Giving it a chance now.

    I should also say that since IOS 11 Apple has prevented all apps from getting MAC addresses. This makes the usefulness of all these tools significantly less. Making the whole purpose of the app far less. So paying for any app that can not show mac-address any more is a hard sell.
