Poor app I cant do capture, I cant do open files.Only open the setting. . Wtf...?!?!? SO, U should not offer the worst app that I have found.Not like wireshark which is too powetful... I disappointed. ..!!!

Dave Campbell-Watts

Excellent piece of software - working in CM11 again (with help) I was using this on CM10.2 with no problems, but could not with CM11. SELinux mode changed to 'Enforcing' with Kitkat stopped it working. If you have this search Play store for SELinux Mode Changer. Set to Permissive again and Bitshark is fine and working again... Set back to Enforcing if you feel safer that way afterwards, or not! Either way Bitshark has saved me hours of debugging network issues.

Adriano De Giorgi

Not convinced! I tried to capture but it allows on 2-3 seconds of capturing mode. Not a big deal, then I will see how the decode works. Not possible with trial to load a trace. I am not convinced to purchase the full version. Tip for the developer: allow to load 2 or 3 traces and take 2-3 captures in the trial version.

chris b

update? No update since april so guessing this is a dead unsupported app, shame idea was good but who would pay for a faulty unsupported app

Paul Starbrook

Pointless trial Doesn't capture nor can you view of it did! What's the point of the trial? Uninstalled.

Ch. Perret

How am I supposed to test if we can't even open a pcap file ? Ridicule ...

Colin Griffith

Cannot start packet capture. It simply refuses to start capturing packets. I'm on a rooted Nexus 10 with Android 4.4. I'd suspect 4.4 to be the problem, except that Shark for Root works just fine. However, it does not have the features I want. If you can get this trial application working, and I see it working, I WILL buy the full version. I'm not touching it until then.

Mitry Konchok

Does not work on Android 4.3 CyanogenMod NIGHTLY- capturing stop instantly after start.

James Jackson

Doesn't Work on Note II (Sprint) "Failed to Start Capturing" error, sometimes with crash.

Jon Derrenbacker

Doesn't work on Nexus 5 Failed to start capture

Lori Zacharuk

Free App! Really! This app does nothing! I guess nothing is free!

John Collomosse

Poor Bought the full version as I couldn't open pcap files in trial. Once bought I find the viewer and analysis is very basic and also crashed. Refunded it promptly.

Cannot capture Doesn't work on galaxy note

Richard Westover

Uselss Stops capture as soon as I go to an application to pass traffic.

Tim Van Cleave

Trial works great but pay very fails to install. Invalid package.

Zack Marotta

Can't read/write, and doesn't read any packets DO NOT INSTALL. The app tries to access the sdcard through /storage/usbdisk, which doesn't do anything. After making a symlink to /storage/emulated/0/, that fixed it, but each packet captured was an "unrecognized packet".

Michael S

Doesn't seem to work with the Samsung S3... This doesn't seem to work with Samsung s3 using the root method. However, I tried it using tPacketCapture which uses VPN rather than root, and this app is able to open the pcap correctly. Please fix

Kenneth Rose

It would be good If we could attempt to analyze a packet which we have already captured. I understand u don't won't to give away the milk for free. But one or two trial runs would be nice

Uwe Gauger

Samsung S4 capture dont work Please update the app. The capture dont work. !!!!

Thijs van Ulden

nice start little feedback from interface. Could use filter examples. Cannot open pcap files (maybe restrict trial to 20 lines). cannot open it's own captured data, is a bug. Interface style is good. can't confirm it works on my nexus 7 so will not buy pro. Would like to see the next version!

Bas Verhoeven

Doesn't work on Android 5.0.1

Nicolás Boettcher

Save pcap I have a Nexus 4 with CM 11 and I can't save pcap files. Please fix it.

Joe Hennessy

Do not waste your time Useless app

Вадим Б

Failing to capture On 4.4 it suddenly stops when trying to capture packet.

Andy Dixon

Does not work After a few seconds asks me to buy full app. No proof it actually does anything. No pcap or error!

Jonathan Aylstock

Crashing on marshmellow When clicking capture it crashes.

Kevin Brunson

Capture issue resolved Delete data/data/blake.hamilton.bitshark busybox. Works for me even in Enforced mode. 2 other devices didn't need this tho. Weird. Awesome app.

Jake Heuft

Non functional Tells me my device doesn't have root, which it does and then quits saying decryption failed. I have an LG G3 running CM12

Hugo van der Kooij

Fails It fails directly with some decryption error. No love here.

Tony Hosea

Good stuff! I would like something that could capture "gtp" traces.

Patwee doesthings

Fix Crash, and more crashes. Why would I want to buy this app of I can't even see how it works. On android 6.1

Jon Gilvar

Outstanding 100% Functional on LG G3 4.4.2 rooted, purchased the pro version some years ago, reminiscent of the desktop product using colors for packet types. Successfully dumping pcap to desktop for easier analysis. If product is not functioning correctly I would suggest looking into (WiCap) I also purchased the pro version of that software too, functions well but interface has a learning curve and is not as intuitive as this product is.
