Crashed on launch using 10.3.9.
Really like the idea... looking forward to trying a working version (1.2.0).

I can't comment as to the actual use of this app, but it's a really interesting idea. Personally, I have no need to encrypt anything. I think the UI isn't all that bad. It looks like a dashboard style app.

maybe i am misunderstanding this-- it locks down part of your computer and *only* your ipod can unlock it? what if your ipod is stolen or breaks-- is there a way to unlock your computer in an emergency?

Read the Developers website before posting:

"How can I unlock if my iPod stolen or broken?
You can unlock your computer by typing the password."

This is a great idea, but the interface is butt ugly. Fix the interface!

Try to turn it off and quit a previous version first.
Then start newer version. 1.0.2 seems stable.

What a superb idea and execution!
Simple uncluttered interface, easy to follow, and yet amazingly powerful and flexible. Cannot comment fully on stability etc, but in just a few hours -- I can easily justify the $20 shareware fee. Considering the functions and interface - PodSmith is a bargain!

I've been looking for something like this forever. Does anyone know of any program like this that makes USB keys or USB drives work with the same locking function?
