Required app if you use Ethernet off a hub

This app works as advertised.

For whatever reason, on some Macs (such as my MacBook Pro 2015) that have no built-in Ethernet, the Mac OS does NOT honor the order you set in system preferences. So even though I tell it to use Ethernet before using WiFi, it won't do that sometimes.

So to prioritize Ethernet, I have to rearrange the order (sometimes giving it backwards instructions works!). And without this utility, I'd have no idea whether Ethernet or WiFi is being used.

The simple thing to do, of course, is keep WiFi off most of the time. But sometimes Apple wants you to have WiFi on for other reasons, such as using Apple Watch to unlock your Mac.

The annoying hassle on Mac OS related to Ethernet is made bearable by this app.

Best $2.99 I've spent

This little app did exactly what I needed it to do. The native Apple can show wifi as operational when it's not, and is worthless for ethernet. This app fixed both problems. I have a 5 Ghz network that can be rather persnickity & this gives a clear indication when it drops off, which the native Apple app does not. Also works great with Ethernet.

Great little utility

Totally bizarre of Apple to not include this capability but this little utility fills the gap perfectly. Ethernet status in your menu bar, click to get details about your connection (IP, public IP). Makes it easy to tell if you’re plugged in or not. Very satisfied with this app that doesn’t try to do too much and just does exactly what it says it does.
