Pie Digital's NetHero is now available for a FREE download in the Google Play Store. It is the first App developed for Android that allows consumers to manage their home internet and connected devices from anywhere using their mobile device. Mike Jude, program manager of consumer communications services for Stratecast, a division of Frost & Sullivan said:
"A recent consumer survey conducted by Stratecast showed that 61 percent of consumers would like an application that allows them to manage their home network from anywhere. Even more compelling, we found that 63 percent of consumers surveyed indicated that they want a service which monitors their home network and which can remotely fix problems. NetHero is meeting this consumer demand."
John Orcutt, CEO of Pie Digital, NetHero's developer, further adds:
"As consumers increasingly add connected devices like Smart TVs, gaming consoles, tablets and more, to their home network, they have found that this comes at the cost of consistently dealing with network errors and interruptions. We believe that the connected home should bring consumers joy – without hassle. NetHero gives them the tools to monitor and manage their increasingly complex environment."
