Ratings and Reviews
Seems that I’ve run into the same issues as others…it just doesn’t work. Even though I paid the license fee I did not get an activation key. Running in trial mode it did absolutely nothing. If it just did what was advertised it would be useable. With a little bit of thought, it could be really good. Sadly, this is not the case.
Please dont buy
The app, once paid for did nothing for me as advertised. I am not computer illiterate and after spending plenty of time trying to trouble shoot something that should be painfully simple… there is simply nothing. It does NOTHING. And spending your money on it doesnt even get you a “license”...
cannot activate mode within application, a lot of false alarms in access mode each time you reconnect magsafe. Seems more a beta than a tested and functioning app. Good idea but needs a lot more work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
