Pingdom Android app now available
You’ve been asking for it, ladies and gentlemen, and now you have it: a Pingdom app for Android.
Just like our iPhone app, the Pingdom Android app is an excellent companion to the Pingdom uptime monitoring service. It lets you connect to your Pingdom account to view the status of the servers and websites you’re monitoring, and also supports alerts via push notifications.
The app is free, and works together with all types of Pingdom accounts (including free accounts).
The main point of the Pingdom service is that you should be the first to know when your site goes down. The sooner you know about a problem, the sooner you can fix it. The Pingdom Android app makes it easy for you to be on top of things on the go.
- Get alerts directly to your Android phone.
- View the current status (up or down) of all your monitored sites.
- View uptime and response time statistics for each site.
- Customize the list of shown checks (each check monitors a site or server).
- Get information about each check, such as its monitoring resolution, check type (HTTP, Ping, DNS, SMTP, IMAP, POP3, TCP port, etc.) and target (IP address or URL).
It might be worth pointing out that push notifications (a.k.a. cloud notifications) require Android 2.2 or later (because that’s when Google added a push notification service).
Try it out!
To use the Android app you first need to have a Pingdom account. You can learn more about our uptime monitoring service at www.pingdom.com, where you can also sign up for a free account.
And actually, you can even sign up for a free account from within the app if you want to. It’s that easy.
Be a happy webmaster, for free
Since the Pingdom Android app works with free accounts, and push notifications are free, you have a zero-cost monitoring solution for your website. Or as we like to put it:
Free monitoring + free Android app + free alerts = happy webmaster
We hope you like it!
