itis much more complicated to get to grips with than fing on android but once some playing with configuration and focussing down you can get the simple output i want when i need to find a rasPi so I can VNC to it.
Reliable and free network scanner to analyse LAN. The program shows all network devices, gives you access to shared folders, provides remote control of computers (via RDP and Radmin), and can even remotely switch computers off. It is easy to use and runs as a portable edition.
Advanced IP Scanner vs Fing opinions
Most users think Advanced IP Scanner is a great alternative to Fing.
A handy systems and security-focused tool, Port Authority is a very fast Android port scanner. Port Authority also allows you to quickly discover hosts on your network and will display useful network information about your device and other hosts.
MASSCAN produces results similar to Nmap , the most famous port scanner. Internally, it operates more like scanrand, unicornscan, and ZMap, using asynchronous transmission. The major difference is that it's faster than these other scanners.
Advanced Port Scanner is a fast and free software for port scanning. It will allow you to quickly find all open ports (TCP and UDP) and detect versions of programs running on them. The utility includes many features simplifying network management.
