My IP is a utility app to see with which public IP address you are connected to the net (different from your IP address inside your LAN). It can work also in background and can optionally show the current IP in the menu bar.

The public IP is the IP address you use to connect to the global net, the address the rest of the world see you at. The public IP address sometime can be static (always the same), sometime dynamic (changed by the internet provider over time at any connection).

Obtaining the IP value of your connection could be not easy, particularly if you are behind a modem router. In the case you are using a modem more...

Thank you very much.

All this comments as usually to try to divert people simply to others products or service on the net or even on other OS.
It is amusing.
You can't post an application on MacUpdate without having immediately other come to suggest 'Don't get this, get that one, it's free !!!!'

Why not accept that there is a solution that people may like and maybe it is not the one you push?

My IP has a lot of features that all your 'free solution' don't have.

Mac users like quality, coherence and refined products that work. This is the reason they purchased a Mac.

Freetards will never understand it.

Thank you to all the true Mac users that appreciate the product.

The beauty of the free enterprise system is that it allows anyone the freedom to create a product - no matter how simple or useless it may appear to be - and ask others to pay for it.

The marketplace determines the success or failure of such products. Me? I don't need it because I use other means if I have to find my public IP address. But others may like it and will spend the $.99.

This is so typical of the app store. They are there to make money and don't give 2 cents whether something is of value or not.

I can't believe this is being sold, even if for $1.00. You should look at the alternatives before doing putting the product on the market. Bwanadik (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/16607/bwanadik) has been free for years, is noninvasive and more feature-complete. I haven't tried it in Lion or Mountain Lion, but don't really see any hurdles to it working in either.

I can't believe that any product we put on sale there is someone that says that there is a better and free alternative and suggest all to go elsewhere.

Often there are also people that suggest to the users to do not buy because with the free Xcode they can realize the software for themselves, all for free without spending a dollar, they just need to code a bit.


Hmmm...Before to go to Appstore to buy this app please try:

Type "what's my ip address" directly into the address bar of your web browser and you'll get your public IP address. Right there! on top of your search results is your public IP address.

If you're lazy, you can just type "what ip" -- same result.

For the laziest, just type just "ip" and get the same result.

Note: My web browsers (Firefox and Safari) both have Google as the default search engine.

This also works if you type "ip" directly into Google search then hit Return.

Here's a bonus, this method does not require "Intel, 64-bit processor, OS X 10.7 or later"

If you want to donate $0.99 to this developer, you still can.


Forgot to mention… hit "Return" key after you type: "Whats my ip address" or "what ip" or "ip" (without the double quotes) to tell your web browser to GO!!

Or go to whatismyip.com in Safari for free. Sheesh. I knew the Mac App Store would turn in to a free for all of nearly useless apps begging for your .99 contribution. That's why I love my iPhone's inability to install non-Apple approved software.

Or if you cannot use a Browser for whatever reason paste this into the Terminal and hit enter. This can also be used with GeekTool for displaying the live IP on the desktop.

echo "External IP: " `curl --silent http://checkip.dyndns.org | awk '{print $6}' | sed "s/\(.*\)\\/\1/"`


Ah, I hate text stripping.

None of the two alternative services mentioned in the replies supports IPv6. http://ix.de/ip, for example, does.
