QuickWho6.4.0

26 April 2017

Graphical interface to the Unix whois tool.

Overview

QuickWho provides a rich array of information about specific Internet domains that surpasses other command-line, GUI or web-based "whois" tools. Are you curious about who owns a particular domain name? Do you want to contact them, or gather more information about them? QuickWho can help you with these tasks. And it's less cumbersome than using an Internet-based whois tool: thre's no need to load a Web page in a browser.

Why QuickWho?

  • Simple, pleasant-to-use interface
  • Save domain data to a file or print for later analysis
  • Display geographic data about domain as well as basic domain data
  • Thorough user documentation via the "Help" menu
  • Support for AppleScript and Services

What's new in QuickWho

Version 6.4.0:
  • Improved error handling
  • Migrate to new source code server

And exactly how is QuickWho an improvement over the Whois tab of the bundled Network Utility app that lets you select a whois server? Sorry, but this sure comes across as a suckerware product.

Version 5 is at least not crashing anymore but after trying it I can now say with certainty that this application is nothing but a joke. In my opinion it is bordering a scam to ask $30 for an application that does nothing but displaying (incomplete) Whois information about domains that can be found for free in numerous places is bordering a scam. It is simply not true that this application provides any kind of "rich" information that "surpasses other ... tools". I highly recommend WhatRoute instead. That is an excellent free tool that not only shows (complete) Whois information about domains but can also be used for Trace, Ping, Query, Finger, Address Scan, and Port Scan tasks. That is what I call rich!

Tried using Quickwho 3.3.0 on an Intel iMac with OS X 10.6.8. However, the application crashes immediately on startup (even though it is located directly in the application folder) with the not very descriptive message "QuickWho Error". What is going on here?

From the developer: This new version is more stable in printing and also offers full support for printing (preview, save as PDF/PostScript). It also finally has a fully-native toolbar UI, making it more pleasant to use. I encourage you to give it a try for searching domain information.

This is not what I call good mac software. My personal experience was this: -Did not allow me to paste something in the search field while something was already in there. -Crashed when I tried to run the software from a sub-folder inside of Applications -Crashed after a printing -Manual not very helpful for me Although I have a registered version, I decided to get rid of it.

I've made this new version of QuickWho substantially different from the older ones. It offers more information than a simple dump of whois output. It's easier to use and better integrated into OS X so it can be incorporated into different workflows. If a program is at a dead end and cannot do what you want it to, you may have no choice but to rewrite large portions of it, even the entire thing. With QuickWho, I rewrote major portions of the user interface (removing the tree view, developing and customizing the rich text view, adding the image display) and completely re-implemented the whois query, as well as the alogorithms to print the data (since it now included an image as well as text). I believe the program now does far more than the simple command-line whois tool, and previous versions of QuickWho: it offers a richer array of information about specific domains, in an easier-to-read format. I hope you'll give it a try.

Wow, I feel sorry for anyone exploited by this developer. You can obviously do this quite well either from the shell, or from one MANY tools on the web if you don't want to use the shell. And most of those online tools give you better output; this doesn't even appear to support rwhois and other needed features. Again, if you have paid this developer money...I am sorry you had to get ripped off.

$20? Are you kidding me? Why not just open the terminal do it by hand, it's just as fast and free. Or, what about going to whois.org and doing their free domain lookup? I was about to download this, but the fact that it's $20 is a huge turnoff... if I really wanted a GUI app equivalent to this, I would just write one for myself for free in 10 minutes. Give us some powerful features not available elsewhere if you're looking for $20.
