    The idea is simple and good


    There is a lot of connectivity problems. The app does not connect to my MacBook. This makes the app useless

    A year ago the app worked like a charm. Since a few months it is hard to connect my iPhone to my MacBook. Unfortunately the developer does not reply to support emails.

    Now I use Unlox and I dont experience connectivity issues

  • Pros: 

    Unlocks you mac when you get close to it with your phone


    pro version (for background unlocks) costs 3.9gbp

    This is the best app Ive tried in a while. It is truly amazing. I tried it once before i bought the pro version without hesitation. I have my iphone in my pocket while im listening to music and browsing the internet on my mac. I stand up and walk away and it automatically locks my mac and pauses the music. As soon as I sit back down again the mac is unlocked and music resumes playing. Amazing, truly amazing.

    For some reason the mac app was in Portugese and not English when I opened it, but it fixed it self when i connected to my iphone.

    10/10 would recommend!

Impressive new update of the already superb Near Lock. Whoever thinks Apple does a good job at automatically unlocking your Mac with the  Watch should take a look at this. It's brilliant. Words can not describe the power of this app. And with version 4 it's better than ever. No knocking on iPhones or watches, though you can set it to do so. This is auto-lock & unlock by walking away or entering the work area where your Mac is. It automatically pauses and resumes your iTunes in case you were listening to music. And it can automatically fill-in your password whenever your Mac needs your authorization. It's amazing. I can go on for hours here, but grab the free trial version and experience it yourself. And be amazed at the excellent new features that are too numerous to mention.

Using stock photos with something that is not a mac probably is not the best idea for the mac app.
