More and more IT professionals are using a tablet or their smart phone to perform network administration and other IT-related tasks.  Here are five free IT tools that can be found in the Apple App Store.

IP Network Scanner will do a quick scan of the local IP subnet and return a list of the devices found.  The Lite version (pictured here) will only return the first five, but the full version will return all devices.

terribly misleading title - should have said networking. There is very little "system management" in this article. I was looking for much more than pings and NS lookups....

Great article, but IT is more than just networking. Networking is the cake, Middleware/OSS the icing, and Applications/BSS are the cherry!
