LanScan is a free, simple and efficient IPv4 network scanner that discovers all active devices on any subnet: the local one, or any public subnet that you configure.
-> Auto-detection of configured interfaces: Airport, Ethernet, Virtual interfaces ...
-> Scan the IP range you like, from 1 IP to the whole IPv4 address space!
-> Scan your local network with ARP packets
-> Scan public IP network ranges with Ping / SMB / mDNS packets
-> Display the IP address, MAC address, hostname (4 max) and vendor associated
-> Discover the SMB domain if any configured
-> Hostname resolution: DNS, mDNS (Apple devices) and SMB (Windows devices)
-> Custom hostname edition
-> Custom comment for each device
-> Export results in CSV files
-> Hide/show each column
-> Align each column as you want
-> No limitation on the number of devices found !
Comparison with the Pro LanScan edition:
-> Only 4 hostnames are fully displayed - You'll see the first 3 chars of the others
Since v4, it's preferred to buy the In-App purchase in LanScan Free edition than buying the LanScan Pro application.
* Fixed a bug when export file wasn't created
* Fixed a bug when new export folder wasn't updated
* Updated Mac Address Vendors

It does exactly what it says on the tin and nothing more - This tool scans your network and reports VERY basic information on each device it finds. IP, MAC Address, Hostname, and Vendor. It does it very quickly and returns its results clearly and quickly.
Does not do what developer states ... - This app does not do what the developer states. It allows you to enter or edit the hostname, BUT THEN removes most of the name and replaces it with self promotion to get the (paid) PRO version. For example, at first one of my network device's hostname displayed "DIR-601" but a few seconds later the program changed it to "DIR *** Go Pro! ***". I have another host with the name "DIR-615", but then the app automatically changed that one also to "DIR *** Go Pro! ***". So really it does NOT actually display or allow you to enter the hostname because it goes and changes it. VERY deceptive description above under program features: "… host name (4 max) and vendor associated". IT SHOULD SAY DON'T BOTHER CHANGING HOSTNAME BECAUSE IT WILL JUST DEFAULT BACK TO AN AD FOR THE PRO VERSION!

fail - consitently failed to find many devices on network compared side by side to the ‘FING’ app (which is absolutely excellent btw, but only for iPhone/iPad).
did not find any wireless clients - This only found devices connected via ethernet. None of the wireless clients were found. Router was Airport Extreme.
Extremely helpful utility - These guys build a ton of useful products. This is one of them.
