Love it. For the next iteration, maybe you can fix the "mute" problem? And invest $99 in an Apple developer certificate? 🤪👍🏻

Pros:

Solves a real problem when working at public spaces

Cons:

Ineffective if thieve mutes sound before taking the MacBook; app not signed.

Great alti-theft alarm system for my MacBook 🚨

Loud alarm. Great to scare the sh*t out of anyone who steals your laptop

I wish it electro-shocked the person who's running away with my laptop 😈

Hopefully I won't ever test this for real, but this product seems to be solving a real problem here.

Pros:

A product which can solve you lots of stress, money and time

Some basic features missing in the first version like "load on mac start"

This is everything I wanted and never knew existed. It's only $10, and it's totally worth it for the peace of mind while you're working from a bar or coffee shop and need to step away to use the bathroom or order another drink, etc. I know it's pretty difficult to quickly steal a laptop because of passwords and "find my macbook," but I personally don't even want to get into the situation where I have to track my macbook and hope no one's gotten through my password screen first. This is the perfect solution!

Pros:

Everything you want when working from coffee shops whenever you need to step away

Cons:

the set up is a little clunky. There's no instructions before you're in the thick of it & downloading apps and changing security settings

The project was sold, and now they're charging a MONTHLY subscription for it. Good knows why would anyone paid monthly for no server-side functionality and virtually no development process.

Pros:

Novel concept

Cons:

Price

Would be great to customize the sound. I'd like to add some text like: "I'm running away with a stolen mac; stop me and call the police.".

Pros:

You can relax visiting the WC.

Cons:

The robber can turn volume off.

I just started digital nomading again, and wanted to buy this app. I remember when it launched it was $5, now it's $20 *recurring*, so I decided to get another one.
