In reality, only helpful if you buy Apple airport gear. Why be helpful without profit?
Will not open when I click it
When I purchased this expensive piece of hardware I was told I’d be able to access it via my phone & iPad when necessary so I foolishly put a ton of files into it thinking I could access/ retrieve when necessary but soon found out that wasn’t the case. Now it’s just a cool looking paperweight.
At some point a few versions ago, this app started telling me it no longer works with my iPod Touch 5th generation, presumably because iOS won't update. There's nothing this app does that should need an OS update IMO and I'm not going to just toss it on the trash when it still works, but at the very least Apple could do a version check BEFORE telling me there's an update available!!! There is no way to clear this off the update list! It keeps telling me there's a newer version available, but gives then says it doesn't work on this iPod Touch. I tried to report this to Apple, but it wanted to install a support app instead first, which is ridiculous just to send a text message to support and probably won't work on this iPod Touch anyway. Apple makes it too difficult to report problems these days, probably because they don't want to hear about them. I can't see myself buying an iPod Touch ever again given how long they last, but get dumped for software support so quickly, more from Apple apps than 3rd party even. How new an OS do you need to check WiFi routers they no longer even make??? It's ridiculous!
Can you update this App as it’s not working very well. And the airport firmware. Thanks
They hack your phone and steal all your information.
It would be great if this utility could display RSSI values when on 3rd party WiFi networks away from home. Like at work or school to confirm if WiFi issue on iOS devices can be attributed to campus coverage. Kind regards
I use this app to manage 2 Airport time capsules (5th gen) and it works very well. A lot of people say it doesn’t work on iPhone X or iOS 13 but I use it on a iPhone X on iOS 13 and it works perfectly and provides coverage that is about a acre long. Wish they still made these routers.
I’m no super user. I just want to plug in my ancient Apple Time Capsule and connect to the internet at a reasonable speed. This app helps me do that admirably. This morning I finally unplugged my fast but unreliable new TP-Link router to return it (piece of junk), then dug out my trusty Time Capsule and hooked it up. Got the flashing amber light and no internet connection. Hm. Opened this app, which showed me in a few words and some handy pictures what the problem was. Fixed it and was immediately up and running. Thanks, Apple. Boy, I wish you still made routers.
