Turn your iPod into a security key for your Mac.

What is PodSmith for Mac

PodSmith uses your iPod as a key for security and for various synchronization features. PodSmith Protects your data with your iPod. With PodSmith, iPod works as a key for your computer. You can lock or unlock your Mac with your iPod.

How does PodSmith protect my computer?

1. Screen Lock - You can lock and unlock the screen by unmounting and mounting your iPod. Of course you can unlock the computer by typing your password without your iPod.

2. File Lock - Specified folders or files can be locked by unmounting your iPod.

3. Protect your files - Disable all applications except those you specify.

What about Auto-Sync?

For example; Mount an iPod to replace the Safari bookmarks of your Mac with your iPod's bookmarks. Then unmount it to go back to the original bookmarks. Your favorite bookmarks are always in your iPod to share anywhere, anytime.

What's new in PodSmith

Version 2.0:
  • Completely rewritten.

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?

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

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?
