IPinator is a really simple, single-function utility app for your Mac. It allows you to get additional information about the IP addresses that you are currently assigned to your Mac. If you don’t know what an IP address is, IPinator is probably not for you.

When your Mac is connected to the internet (or any other device for that matter), the device typically has two IP addresses — local and external and IPinator quickly displays information about these IP addresses. The main window displays a map with a pin displaying the location of the external IP and below it, it lists the local and external IP addresses. Under the External IP address, it also lists the network/ISP that the IP belongs to.

This same interface is also available as a Today Widget for your Notification Center, so you don’t need to have the app running and this info is easily accessible with a single swipe from the right. IPinator also offers keyboard shortcuts to Refresh, Copy Local IP and Copy External IP to clipboard. I do wish I could manually enter an IP address and look up its location (such as server IPs).

That’s all there is to the app. It does one thing and it does it well. I also love its icon. IPinator is available on the Mac App Store for $3.99.
