Does what I want

I’m fairly happy about this - I haven’t had any issues, and it works. I, too, wonder where the “Screensaver” option in the preferences shown in the screenshots are, but that’s fairly minor.

The only other minor quibble that I have is that I don’t quite trust it as yet. It’s not completely clear how closely it tracks my iPhone 5; it’s kind of hard to test it out given that you can’t see the signal strength while you’re testing. I haven’t had it not lock, but it’s like getting to the point where you trust the refrigerator light is always out when you close the door - until the mechanism is clear, you wonder. Also, the signal strength display appears to update rapidly (good) but I wonder whether there’s any load on the phone battery from the Bluetooth activity.

These are minor, however, and it’s a great value - so I do recommend it.
