10 IT Apps for iPads and iPhones, December 12, 2012 Put that iPad or iPhone to work! IT administrators can get a lot done with a few taps of a finger on an Apple mobile device--given the right tools.

A full-featured reference for Wi-Fi routers, NetRef will pull up the manual, default passwords and user IDs for dozens of wireless routers, including Belkin, Buffalo, D-Link and Netgear. The list of supported routers is updated frequently and the last few manuals accessed are cached so you can read them even when offline. To top it off, the app can ping a particular router to see if it's attached to the network.
