SUBNET CIPHER PRO [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (75%)

04 Feb

Subnet Cipher Pro is a Network calculator tool and is released by Youngdahl US.

Subnet Cipher Professional is a network calculator tool designed specifically for the TouchPad. Just learning Subnetting? This is a great learning aid, helps visualize whats really happening at the bit layer.”

This networking tool is a bit of a niche application, aimed at people who are interested in networking information and seeing the subnet information from the IP address which can be manually or automatically added.

At the very least, this app can be used to discover your own IP address, but there are other options available that can do this.

The application is very simple to use and will automatically open showing subnet information based on your own IP address.

Once you have discovered the information you are looking for you have several options to output the information including printing, saving the file or emailing. If you are working on several IP address you can look through any recent IP address. 

The user interface is clean and easy to use, as long as you understand networking a little.

On the upside:

  • Nice and clean user interface.
  • Useful tool for people learning or using networks.

On the downside:

  • A very niche application.
  • No real preferences in the application, for items viewed or options.

Overall, this is a very good networking app and does what it sets out to do. It is a shame that its market is so niche at the moment. If HP had taken the time to get the Touchpad into the business market place, this may have been a much have application for the IT departments. Hopefully, if the open webOS takes off then this application still has a chance of finding a market.
