    Pros: 

    - Works as intended, visually very close to my iPhone and what I would expect from macOS out of the box

    Cons: 

    See below

    Cons:
    - The only way (I have found) to connect my AirPods is by placing them into the case and then opening it, there's no way to manually connect them. Toothfairy does a much better job of this.
    - Control is managed through the Today sidebar which I never use. I was expecting a menu bar icon for easier access.
    - Installation was kind of confusing, you have to manually add the sidebar widget. I didn't read the small text at first and was confused

    Overall the idea is really nice and I like the way it's built. However the user experience leaves a lot to be desired and unfortunately this won't replace Toothfairy for me until I can manually connect/disconnect my AirPods.

    Pros: 

    It's works similar to iPhone. Amazing!

    Cons: 

    Some things need to improve like the level battery of each earbuds when are out of the case.

    It interesting have level battery separate of each earbuds when it is out of the case like the experience in iPhone.
