Very basic...needs work

:
App looks promising and pretty but they need to add a lot more features or make it free. There are free or cheaper apps that do the same things. I thought that by paying more, I would get more functionality….not the case in this version. The app also crashes a lot when you try to add a new website to monitor.

Here are a few suggestions... that would make me change my review:
Add a configurable timer for each site when you have the app open.
Add some statistics/graphs on ping/response times.
Add pop3 checks.
Monitor text changes on a page.
Monitor file existence on an FTP site.

Good if only...

:
it didn't error when on 3G. Wifi works great, but shows false errors when on 3G. Much better UI than UrlCheck, but if it shows false errors on 3G then it's not really a good tool for serious developers.

Hope this gets fixed soon.

***Update***
Sent a message to the dev regarding the 3G usage issue and got no response. All I want is a simple website monitor such as this that functions correctly on 3G.

This is the second website monitoring app I have wasted money on because they don't function correctly when on 3G. If I have a wifi signal to check my sites' status why would I be using my iPhone?
