Great concept but unfortunately the app will not stay connected to my Mac. It disconnects almost immediately, plus it was very troublesome to even get my Mac to see the iPhone in the Notifyr preferences pane. Hopefully an update will fix. I am using an iPhone 5 and a Macbook Pro Retina 15" 2012.
I'm curious, how well does the HiDPI work? I currently have iDisplay and it fails miserably at it.
Great idea, but really really poor feature set for $19.99. It has less effects than PhotoBooth and only 1 page of the effects utilize facial tracking (so effects such as the censor acts only as a blob in the center of the screen that doesn't move with your head). It also doesn't make an HD FaceTime camera look any better IMO (just unnaturally bright). If this app were $5, I maybe would be okay with the limited features, but for only have some of the effects photobooth has, it's pretty unacceptable for $19.99. idk, $20 to have a couple of the swirling effects in a FaceTime call seems hardly worth it. Add more effects, masks, etc. that all utilize facial tracking and it will start to be worth it. There is literally only 1 with animation and it's birds flying around your head. lol. At least that one uses facial tracking though.
broken in 10.8
4/5 stars only because it would be nice if it included a Quicklook plugin for viewing CHM files and generating previews.
Outstanding developer support. This version has made me very happy.
Phone Amego really is an excellent product that does what it says it does, but my-oh-my the preferences panel is far too complicated (and limited). My major gripe is the price. $29.99 is sort of steep IMO, but at least the application seems to be updated frequently. My minor gripe is with notification redundancies. If someone texts your iPhone from another iPhone, you get the following flashing on your Mac: a Phone Amego Notification Center notification, an iMessages.app Notification Center notification, and a Phone Amego call status HUD window alert (that annoyingly fades away too quickly). If you were to open iMessages on your Mac and reply, the iMessage notifications clear from the notification center, but the Phone Amego alerts remain. It's just overkill. At least let me turn off SMS alerts entirely or the Phone Status HUD alert for SMS messages (or even better, let Phone Amego only show me alerts for SMS messages and not iMessages). Ultimately, I just need an application that only shows me the phone call and SMS alerts that I'm not already receiving on my MacBook. It just shows too many alerts right now because it won't let you customize alerts for SMS messages and Phone Calls as separate items (for instance, I may want to have the Phone Amego Call Status HUD 'on' for phone calls and 'off' for SMS messages, but currently it only allows you turn it 'off' for both). Furthermore, while the program may (arguably) provide a feature set that justifies the $29.99 price tag, the price is just far too steep for my limited needs.
I realize it's $20.99 with a student discount, but that's still too steep for just wanting phone call alerts from my iPhone in notification center on my Mac.
Beautiful! Notifications are very clear and customizable now (bummer about the iMessage vs SMS thing but I get that it's outside the developer's control). To echo everyone else, absolutely amazing developer support. In only 10 days he implemented suggested features to add functionality. No one else does that (not that I've seen anyway).
