Works like a charm!
Works with no problems for me! No lag or huge delays. Once I wake my screen the app connects almost straight away. Incredibly convenient and always impresses my friends.
The only downside is the app. Every so often it loses its nut and tries searching for my computer, I can see the location access icon on my status bar appear and my iPhone heats up like crazy, draining my batteries in moments. It's incredibly annoying, and I've been forced to stop using the app because of the battery drainage it causes when it tries looking for my computer randomly.
But when it does work, it's fine. The app doesn't drain the batteries a lot and the ability to unlock is pretty much instant.
Great App, Great Support from the developer
I LOVE this app. Simple to use, speeds up my day and never fails to impress people when I use it at work. Had an issue connecting after the Sierra GM update - but the developer sent me detailed instructions on how to fix it (under 24 hours from when I sent the distress flare) and it works like a charm again. Well worth the money so buy with confidence. Running on a 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina Display / iPhone 6s+ / Apple Watch Series 1 Aluminium.
Excellent, works well
Very convenient and so far has been absolutely reliable.
Thinking of setting my Mac password to something longer and more difficult as I'll only rarely need to enter it now that I have this app.
