Internet Reachability Verifier for Unity


Introducing my third little thing for the Unity Asset Store:

Internet Reachability Verifier for Unity

It’s a simple thing, but there wasn’t other assets available doing exactly this. Since I needed to build something like this, I figured out I’ll polish it a bit and put to asset store as well.

So what does it do, since Unity API already has Application.internetReachability?

The Application.internetReachability has a bit misleading name – it actually tells if it is technically possible for you to try to use the network. So, on a desktop machine it will always tell you that you can. On a mobile device it’s nice for checking if you’re really offline, or if you can try to make a connection (and if it is going to use WiFi or carrier data).

However, with mobile devices, quite often you need to go through a login web page before the internet truly works. In such wireless network, any WWW request will actually give you the login page instead of the data you actually wanted. This is the situation why you want to use Internet Reachability Verifier – read more details from its own web page.
