Port Detective is a networking tool designed to detect open ports on hosts on the local network. The port scanner algorithm is speedy and capable of scanning 65535 ports in around five minutes on a single core processor.

This application also comes with a Port Encyclopedia, enabling the user to quickly look up what a certain port's function is. A local database is stored on the phone for defining ports, however there is also an option to look it up online for the most recent information.

    Wow. Simple interface, live reporting of found ports, a progress bar, and works in the background. The only problem is the scan restarts when orientation changes.
