It's going on 7 years without an update. Does anyone know if this still works with newer stuff like Mountain Lion?

To answer my own question, this everlasting gobstopper still works flawlessly with Mountain Lion 10.8.4. Didn't test the email capabilities, but everything else seems to work perfect.

Hi,

Note to Developer - I've created a little Menu Bar icon for ipMenu. In case you are interested, let me know and I will send you this new icon as PNG file with transparent background.

This is how it looks like when placed in menu bar:

Amazing app. Simple, light wight, and highly valued.
For a Ti Powerbook with only 512 mb of ram IP Menu is perfect for me and people with scarce resources.

I do like the concept of WIMP as a security app too buy hiding the menu icon but I I'll just take a snapshot of the menu bar (+shift+4) and disguise it.

What would be better is an arrangement that saced space in the menubar, such as having the app icon and then clicking on it to view the IP address.

This is how IPMenu works now :-). You click the icon, and your IP addresses are shown to you.

Oops, I'm sorry, I mis-read your comment. Yes, a dock icon is planned for a future version :-).

I think this is a great little app for anyone who has to access their home computer from the office. PacBell can change my ip address several times a week, so the email notification is a real convenience!

question, when check ip every: is NOT checked, does it update the ip at all?
and how come in version 1 you allowed checking the ip every 5 mins as the quickest delay, and now in 1.1 it's 30 mins? i'd like it to check every minute if possible

Who needs to check their IP every minute? Generally your IP will not change as long as your machine is on or until it's released & reset by DHCP (24 hours commonly). Every 1-5-? minutes is a waste of resources.

Hello,

The five minute limit was upped to 30 because I found a lot of people making un-necessary checks (aka their IP didn't change). For basically all connections, 30 minutes is perfect :-). If others really want it lower though, I'll bring it back down in the next release.

Great app, but... I have DSL dynamic IP. IPMenu will always show me the same external IP, but the truth is my real IP changes periodically and is not the same as shown by ipmenu. Similar, but not the same.

In addition (forgot to mention this in the last post :-), you can have IPMenu update your IP address once every 30 minutes from the preferences (or whatever time you'd like). This will help people with dynamic DSL/Cable/etc :-).

Just what the doctor ordered. Now if it would also email the IP address when it changes, it would be perfect
