5.0.15 (See all)

Network Notepad is an application that allows you to create network diagrams. I didn't know where all those fancy diagrams came from until I bumped into this application. It allows you to take all the devices in your home network and add them to a diagram. That is a simple understatement. When you start a diagram, you will see all the devices that the application can detect by itself. You can also add devices by hand. There are tons of different elements that you can use to unite each one of the devices. You can use curve lines, straight lines, put your computers in a little cloud and much more. Network Notepad also allows you to add IP address for all your computers and devices. I like that it has an option to automatically refresh all the IP addresses. It is common for devices to change their IP addresses unexpectedly, so that's a nice feature. Almost everything is done by dragging and dropping. The program supports Windows 9x, 2k, NT, XP and Vista, so you have many options to use the application. The newest version of this application is 4.6.4. However, this review deals with version 4.6.
