The URL Monitor application is a simple simple diagnostic URL endpoing monitor application for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry Playbook, built using Adobe Flex & AIR, and has an adaptive user interface that changes view layout depending whether the application is being consumed on a phone or tablet device.
Simply enter a URL into the text box and add it to the list. A polling HTTP request will be made every 10 seconds to determine the availability of a given endpoint. HTTP codes 200, 202, 204, 205 and 206 will be identified as a success with a green check. All other HTTP codes will indicate a problem as a red ‘X’. To remove a listing, simply perform a horizontal swipe on a given row to reveal a delete button.
