My friend told me about this app, loving it, perfect complement to my iPhone, iPod touch and my iPad's lock screen.

On my 2008 MBP Swipe Lock really locks my system. Swipe doesn't work as trackpad seems to be disabled.
I use FileVault. Perhaps this caused the bug to reveal itself.

Application is rendered totally useless however, since the swipe feature doesn't work

No. Just no.
Mac should never be an iOS. I know Apple is leaning that way with Lion, but it's the wrong direction for a desktop computer. This is a terrible step in the wrong direction.

wow, if you don't like it.....walk away. This is an app for enjoyment, not for you to write your opinions about Apple's endeavors......Why don't you take your thoughts to them rather than posting them on a developers app.....

JennyBlock the commenter is right. This software is made for lobotimized people. I don't want iOS trash on my Mac. if you were dumb enough to pay for this and defend it you just proved only stupid people like iOS and the dumbed down GUIs.

inplainview you proved without a doubt how stupid people really are with OS-like trash-ware.

If you paid $4.99 for this buggy software you are a sucker. You could have done the same thing for easier with a hot corner.

LizBo, not to be offensive but Hitler also tried to dictate and push his opinions onto the rest of society but as it stands society made up their own mind.

If you don't like this app then by all means, don't purchase it. If you'd like to continue to rant, I suggest you move on over to craigslist with the rest of the ranters that have nothing productive to do with their time.

As for the software being buggy, I have yet to hear from you on what type of bugs the software has, maybe you could be a little more descriptive on your specific issue, but oh wait, I forgot, you didn't buy this software, but yet you are saying that its buggy?

In either case, these are supposed to be software reviews, and you are exactly what's wrong with the software reviews going around today. You are not so much reviewing the software as you are stating your opinion about who should or shouldn't be using it. Stop dictating and ranting. Nobody cares.

Notice we "commented' not "reviewed"

You are exactly what's wrong with developers today. Jumping on people who criticize your app instead of trying to make something useful.

I've developed tons of useful apps and have received plenty of great reviews. What I don't appreciate is when people critisize apps without fully trying them out and then properly stating even in their own opinion the likes and dislikes.

timi, I am not attacking your comment but LizBo is out of line for calling people stupid for liking something that other people don't like. If you like something great, if you don't, great, but trying to dictate that everyone who likes something that you don't is stupid, well that's just not necessary.
