Your location will not been detected nor transfered at any time.

Exactly what I was looking for. Large array of options to work with, and everything is easy to setup. I particularly like the option of showing WiFi SSID currently used in Status line. The fact that the widget can be configured to activate many different options upon being touched - most use full in my opinion is the No Response - is wonderful. This app really stands out with the right features, easy setup and very well implemented. Worth more than 5 stars hands down. Gert P.

Update: the developer's suggestion has it working perfectly again. A solid 5 star App, and I would give it a 6 if I could, for the excellent support. Thanks! I would have given this a 5, but the newest version is buggy. It no longer updates as I change internet connections. I now have to open the App and close it to then see my current ip connection. A few weeks ago though it worked great.

Please try to exclude the app from battery optimization. This can be done in IP Widget Settings in the permission section.

This widget is sort of the baseline for an IPMonitor toolkit that i like and appreciate for its content. However i would like to see just a touch more work put into the UI. Drawing over other apps is part of what makes it useful, but theres a lot of real estate devoted to it in notifications. Network change alerts tend to draw in the center of the keyboard or the talk/end button fields. Still, its a very thorough toolset CMDline set.
