In Pictures: 10 great Android apps for IT pros

From remote data access to electronics reference tools, these Android apps come in handy for IT pros on the go

Fing An odd play on “ping,” Fing does a great job of enumerating the devices on your network by using MAC address lookups and checking what open ports are available. The Android version does a great job, but Overlook, the app’s creator, would like you to sign up for the cloud version (Home, Pro, or Enterprise) to enable storage and correlation from multiple sentinels (aka versions of Fing you’re running in Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Linux, or Raspberry Pi). Fing can monitor various services by checking ports either on demand or at regular intervals. Not a Science Logic EM7 by any stretch, but Fing is a solid tool that has grown beyond just a single app on a single machine.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
