Why is IP in Menu Bar 4.1 so big (12.9MB) and an app that appears to do the same thing (IPMenulet 1.0) so small (172KB)? What does this app do that IPMenulet 1.0 doesn't do? And why the huge difference in size of the two apps?

A very useful bit of freeware, but it only shows a machine's local IP. IP Broadcaster is also freeware and it shows both local and public IP addresses. Furthermore, its developer has maintained an entire suite of networking utilities for many years, demonstrating a committment to both shareware and freeware apps: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/15325/IP%20Broadcaster

Does the job! Simple IP display up on the menu bar with some cool features. Works in Mavericks.

IP in menubar is almost perfect. I love the option of the smaller font and the way that it updates immediately when using VPN. As I am using it primarily with VPN. It would be nice to retain my original IP address as a reference next to the new VPN current IP. Also another feature that I would like to see is the country of origin of the VPN IP that I have been allocated. Would that be possible? Thanks again for a very useful tool.

Easy answer: IP in menubar is coded in real basic, an easy language to learn, visual, pretty much anyone that can drag and drop can code an app in rb. They are not as pretty as cocoa apps, not as fast, and as you noticed not as small in terms of app size but it also hogs resources more than a clean cocoa app. RB is really for people who either don't know much coding or who want to make multi-platform apps since rb can be ran on any OS. If your on a mac, use cocoa apps and in this case, ipmenulet. Both apps are opensource at their respective sites so go and play!!

Those are really good questions. So, where is the developer to clean up those questions ? Although, i really don't understand why size matters in this case ?

Wow. Nearly a meg for a one-trick pony, whereas MenuMeters does this and quite a number of other functions at less than half the size. That's REALCr...REALBasic for you.

I don't understand complaints about file size these days. Are people still using 14k modems with 10mb hard drives?

I believe his point was that, as hardware costs have declined -- especially storage costs -- many companies & programmers have become lazy and much less efficient as a result. I'm not saying this programmer is lazy at all -- but perhaps the makers of RealBasic aren't really making "tight and efficent" software.

A great little app. I change locations often. With this app, I can easily see when the new IP has connected (and connected correctly) without having to click a drop down menu. Sometimes the simplest apps are the most useful. Certainly this one is.

Simple quick and easy.... I have it set at startup and having to bounce around among different wifi networks I know my connection is working when I see the IP address kick in.... been using it since June of last year with no problems currently running panther 10.3.2
