iAlertU overview

iAlertU is the first of its kind of alarm system for your Apple MacBook computer. Basically iAlertU is a car alarm for your Apple Mac. iAlertU uses the built in accelerometer and other sensors to trigger an alarm and the iSight camera to capture an image of the thief. iAlertU can be configured to email details of the alarm event to a specific email address. In addition to this you can tell iAlertU to execute an Applescript when the alarm goes off. Some people use this to generate SMS alerts. With v0.71, the developers of iAlertU added a new interface that can be used by an external, authenticated application to control iAlertU, request photo's, and other information captured by iAlertU. The first such application is uAlertMe, an iPhone app available on Apple's app store (for more information, visit the developers webpage at http://www.pkclsoft.com/pkclsoft/ualertme.html).

What’s new in version 0.80

Version 0.80:
  • Replaced the obsolete use of whatismyip.com for a similar service. This in turn also fixed the sending of push notifications to the iPhone.

Why the hell it needs to install Java!? I'd rather pay for native app. :(

Apparently (see website) the requirement 10.6 is wrong: there it is: 10.4.

I recommend iAlertU to all my Mac friends and colleagues as it provides essential security to my precious laptop. My company wants me to lock down my MBP with a physical lock but with this nifty app, combined with the iPhone app UalertMe I can leave it with my mind at ease.

I was going to give it 4 stars before I learned how to get the alarm to keep going off even after the lid was shut. Because that's what a thief would do first if they wanted to steal my laptop while I left it unattended in the library. But now that I know it will go off no matter what the person does (I set it so that the alarm shuts off once the movement stops...AWESOME!!) I love this. Seriously, for a free product, the quality, design, and the user friendly controls set-up is simply astonishing. Keep it up!!
