IPinator

I’m pleased to announce that IPinator is finally live on the App Store. It’s a utility app and Notification Center widget that displays your external IP address and locates it on a map for easy access during local development, VPN setup, etc.

IPinator is written in Swift and uses Argo for JSON parsing and Llamakit for Result. During development, I came across a limitation where Today extensions can’t display a MKMapView directly. I got around it by generating an NSImage of the map and displaying it instead.

If you’d like to write about IPinator, feel free to drop a line for a promo code.
