App idea

New app idea: constant service that grabs the IP address, host name, and global IP every 5 minutes (maybe more, maybe less, maybe just on change). This would output to a file stored on the SD card. I considered outputting it to a list in the app, but it would probably just read the output file.

The idea is I’m curious as to how often my phone renews the IP address with the cell network and how it changes over time. I don’t imagine a lot of usefulness of this app to the world, but it would quell my curiosity.
