    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: 

    I have more success connecting my Airpods with Airbuddy than via ToothFairy

    Cons: 

    See below

    If you work in a fairly populated space or a public area, be prepared to be spammed by any and all available devices. I really wish there was a way to say ONLY connect to devices on my iCloud account.
