  • OH NO, I didn’t mean to update!

    By Mr. Faderlever
    I’ve been using this app to manage my AirPort Extreme for years. It’s not the most in-depth router management tool but, it’s the only router management tool available to manage an Apple Airport product. I had no intentions on upgrading/updating this app. on my iPad, which is what I use for pretty much everything apple based on the terrible reviews this update 1.3.6 was getting. Unfortunately I accidentally did update the app while I was updating other apps. Once I realized what I’d done, with great hesitation I launched the app and held my breath... it seemed to launch normally, in fact it was fine! After testing several features I could not find any issues or even any changes. The WiFi scanner is still present and works fine, (I’d seen a few comments saying the upgrade broke or removed the WiFi scanner). I went through several areas in the app, NAT setting, port forwarding, etc. everything works fine. if I didn’t know I updated the app I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two versions. Apple has stopped supporting all things Apple Airport but as of this review are still selling airport products. Apple’s not exercising Best Practices in my humble opinion but everyone knows the Apple knows what’s best for us, the Apple is here to help us, the Apple will keep you safe, the Apple is good, trust the Apple... but seriously, the update works just fine for me.
  • WiFi Scan Feature Removed

    Why would Apple remove the singlemost useful feature that best enables a successful low-noise wifi deployment? No idea, but one star is what I think of it.
  • Update Failure for iPad

    By ReconMarine911
    Now sure what they did wrong but update not capable with iPad. Update loads and then sits there to do nothing, then triggers warnings and messages.
  • Crashes with iOS 13

    By Charg5
    Used to work great but now with the new iOS 13 it crashes every time you try to enter your password to log in. Hoping for an update soon, Apple. Ok several weeks after the initial post it worked for a while, but guess what it’s not working again. This time though, when you enter your password it doesn’t crash, the password box just disappears but nothing happens. Apple, I know you are better than this!!!! It’s your own app for heavens sake, running on your OS, and it doesn’t matter on which of your OS’s it doesn’t work on any of them. What is up with you?
  • La aplicación es excelente , pero !!!

    By Mbtechk
    Tengo más de 10 productos Apple , y esta aplicación ya no funciona con mi minipad 1 , ni con mi IPhone 4s , Apple debería dejar operativo esta aplicación en los equipos de vieja data para poder usarla cuando se requiera , me parece una falta de respeto para los clientes que tienen equipos apple de vieja data funcionando y no puedan usar las aplicaciones esenciales como el Airport ! Por favor reconsideren y vuelvan a respaldar esta aplicación esencial para los clientes . Tengo equipos viejos y recientes porque me gustan y NO QUIERO DEJAR EN DESUSO LOS EQUIPOS VIEJOS , Muchas gracias
  • Install failure cycle requires device wipe and rebuild

    By Illusivek
    The most recent update traps iOS 9.3.5 in a perpetual installation failure / re-install cycle consuming Processor and Memory resources. The app can't be removed in its indeterminate state. The only resolution is to wipe and rebuild the mobile device. A backup from before most recent version may help, but only if the device can't start the update process before the app can be deleted,
  • Broken

    Won't even install
  • Compatible with iOS 9, but not iOS 9 Devices?

    By Tomzer1
    Dear Apple App gang, Please bring back support for the app working on the iPad 2. The app was working perfectly before the update, but now it is not. And now it's saying it's not supported by the device. Despite the fact that it's running iOS 9. At least please offer a way to install the previous version. If Apple is no longer making the excellent line of AirPort routers, at least don't ruin the maintenance software for those of us still running them. The software wasn't so sophisticated or planned for future features that it required an update to new hardware, etc., to use. Thanks.

  • Thanks for the update!

    Love this app that lets me manage my network and Router. iOS 13 broke it, but after a few weeks Apple did an update and made it work again. Thanks!
