Second review after about two years

Don[t hook. up without it!!
If you live in a totally wireless (except 240-volt AC power) environment, only cellular and satellite, well, .... you can imagine. About network difficulties I know a LOT. This app helps a LOT.
Does exactly what it promises with no fuss. Transparent. Always there. Gives you your public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for each active connection, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth or Thunderbolt. I have had this through several versions of macOS including the present 11.1 Big Sur, always with five star results.

Some inaccuracies.

This is a great program, and for the most part it does what it says it will do. However, on all of our Mac computers (Mac Pro desktop), Mac Studio, Mac Pro (notebooks), we are constantly getting the message "You are connected to Ethernet, but no Internet!" -- which is untrue and needlessly worrisome. We ARE connected to the Internet on all those machines. But we still get the message. I wish the developer would fix this error. Running Ventura 13.0 everywhere. [After writing this I received a note from the developer who says they are working on fixing the problem. It's great to see an app developer so dedicated to their product.]

Easily accessible network info

Took a while to fix crash at startup but it is working now. Always shows correct network device in use when ethernet and wifi are enabled.
----- Original review -----
Based on the reviews I figured this would work but it consistently crashes on startup. Submitted a ticket at the beginning of May with the crash report. Supposedly fixed but 2 months later the fix hasn't been released. Maybe it would work if the update was released.
