Ratings and Reviews
UPDATED ... Failed to connect and ...
MacLock UPDATED to work between all devices. Kudos to a responsive developer who didn't make excuses, but who instead did fix the problems.
Now, MacLock works as promoted and does so nicely. A convenient app to use to make a repetitive task simpler.
... on the iPhone 6S and iPad 2 4th generation (iOS 9.1 Beta 4 and, previously, Beta 3), "Searching for Computers" with "No computers connected" followed by the app crashing.
... on the Mac (OSX El Capitan), "Looking for Devices" is always shaded and "Check for Update" results in a dialogue box stating "Update error!".
No connection has been successfully made since the initial installation, removal, and re-install.
No acknowledgement of an eMail sent identifying the problem and providing device, OS, and details of steps taken to attempt to have the app function or any other reply from the in-the-app feedback contact.
Excellent concept with an apparent failed execution.
I was looking for a fingerprint reader for Mac, which are about as rare as hen teeth, when I started thinking since my iPhone has a fingerprint reader is there an app to use my phone to login to Macs? Sure enough here it is. Hope in the future they add Mac Safari/Firefox web browser passwords too. That would be very nice addition.
What a complete waste of money!
Since purchasing this app I have tried for 2 days to make it work and it absolutely does not work at all! This is disappointing and aggravating at the same time. If there was a way to give this app zero stars that would still be more than it's deserves! It doesn't see my iPhone or iPad no matter what I do. Not a snowflakes chance in a volcano of getting a refund either but that's the chance you take with apps; especially the kind that don't work!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
