Okay, no updates for a while. But it's very useful and stable. It even works on Mountain Lion. And: it's free!

Works well, easy to setup.

One drawback that makes it useless (to me) is that the bluetooth has TOO far a range. Need to be able to limit the range, then it is worthy of donations.

So why rate the software for that? It's an aspect of Bluetooth itself, not the software side. It cannot be changed.


Jeebus, that was 2.5yrs ago. I probably misunderstood back then. I would be happy to raise it a star or two if I could. What the hell does this app do again... oh, well moved on a long time ago...


This is a valid complaint, given that other similar apps provide a way to select the signal strength for triggering the event.
Still, 2 stars seems a little harsh...
