Sorry, this is getting one star until they fix it to work on Sierra. I’ve bought it and can’t even open it. Please sort urgently.

It seems to work

I installed an earlier version of this for use with Plex (which has problems keeping the Mac awake) and found it problematic. When I saw this new version I deleted the old version, along with all its support files, and installed the new. And now it appears to work correctly. However, sometimes the Mac is asleep before the film I’m watching on Plex on the AppleTV has finished and therefore the films watched/unwatched status is not correctly updated. This is, of course, a problem with Plex, but sometimes this app has allowed the Mac to sleep when it shouldn’t. Most of the time it keeps the Mac awake as it should.

Does exactly what it says...

I first got this for when I was using my Personal Hotspot on my iPhone as when the MacBook went to sleep, I had to go through the pain of reconnecting it to my phone.

I now also use it for iTunes, useful when watching a movie from Apple TV.

It does exactly what is says it does, just sits in the background when not doing anything, can’t fault it!
